Play Heavenly Sword on Thursday

Download an action-packed slice of Sony's slick-looking new brawler

You've been drooling over sexy shots of Sony's Heavenly Sword in action for months, and as of this Thursday you'll be able to download the demo to play it for yourself, Sony has confirmed to CVG.

The demo is short and sweet, only lasting around 10 minutes or so but giving you a nice taster of the multiple-style fighting system, the interactive cutscenes and physics-based scenery.

You'll take on a group of men on a high cliff, slide acrobatically down three huge ropes and land in an object-filled courtyard where you can use the scenery around you to batter another dozen soldiers.

Just log into the PS Store this Thursday.
