batman-demoAfter a long period of waiting, we’re finally going to get a chance to play Batman: Arkham Asylum – completely free! Unfortunately, it’s not that Eidos decided to offer us all a great gift and give the full game for free, but they’re going to release a Batman: Arkham Asylum demo on August 7 and we’ll get a chance to give the game a try. And it will hopefully last longer than 5 minutes.

According to Eidos, the Batman: Arkham Asylum demo will start with The Joker being brought to the Arkham Asylum by the Dark Knight and Commissioner Gordon, but somehow The Joker manages to set up a trap and capture Batman.

We’ll be able to experience, therefore, the much talked about FreeFlow combat system, as well as the Invisible Predator mechanic and, of course, kick some serious arse in the Arkham Asylum. We will be also allowed to unlock character bios, as well as get a sneak peak at some of the infamous foes that BATMAN will encounter within the cavernous and macabre confines of the Asylum. And all this sounds like a complete and rather lengthy demo.

We’ll see for ourselves if this is the case when the Batman: Arkham Asylum demo is released by Eidos – on August 7. In order to get the demo, you’ll have to visit the official website of the game. Have fun!
