Capcom today announced that their co-op demo that has featured at trade shows like E3, Comic-Con and soon to be GamesCom next week, will see the light of day for Gold Members on Xbox Live on August 19th, just as GamesCom opens its doors. Silver members can download the demo on August 26th.

What can we expect? Capcom tell us this ...

"Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers around the world will be able to experience the desperate battle against the enormous G-Type Salamander Akrid boss in online, co-operative shoot outs. Utilizing a host of weapons scattered through out the arena, squads of up to four players will face off against the huge monster in an attempt to bring it down. Players can assault the Salamander in a number of ways, from shearing off its legs to actually being swallowed and fighting their way out from the inside! Superior firepower comes in many flavours, including numerous beam and projectile weapons and several Vital Suit robotic combat units that up to three players can ride at once. There are new support weapons which allow teammates to boost attack and defense abilities, while players can share life-giving thermal energy amongst injured members of their squad. Additionally, the new Dash feature allows players to sprint for short distances, bringing greater speed to combat."
4 player Lost Planet 2 co-op demo on Xbox Live? Sounds like fun.

this is really fun i played the demo at E3. i agree the first was ok but they really fixed a few issues and tighten up the controls in part 2 and the coop just makes the game that much more fun!

Nice to see a demo come out before the actual game. Bit late on the Call of Juarez weren't they?

Great news, i really enjoyed the first one and think it got a lot of stick it didn't deserve, single player was quiet easy but still fun, and multiolayer i found quiet addictive and a nice chance to the standard FPS online.

Looks pretty good, not the biggest fan of the first one, but I'll get the demo. One of my friends is really excited, perhaps he'll convince me when we play the demo. Anyhow, there are games higher up on my wanted list than this...

This is actually pretty shocking, considering the game isn't coming out until 2010! Who releases public demos 5-7 months in advance? Capcom I guess...

Holy crap :D Way to be, Capcom. More developers need to follow this example and give us a taste of these excellent games earlier than a few days before release...or sometimes POST-release.
