Bodycount : the demo is now available

Codemasters announces that the Bodycount Demo is now available on the Xbox Live. PS3 owners should content themselves with this trailer, for the moment.

Press Release :


Tuesday 16th August (12pm UK) – Codemasters® invites Gamers to go ballistic by downloading the Bodycount™ demo from Xbox® LIVE Marketplace today. The demo lets players sample the outrageous and over-the-top arcade gunplay that takes centre stage in the shooter that will make players fall in love with firepower. A new video showing the demo’s explosive firefights is now showing at www.youtube.com/bodycountgame. ;

“Fans should expect a lot of mayhem, a lot of destruction, fun, fast paced arcade action,” said Max Cant, Art Director. “It’s much more of an A-Team experience than some sort of dour, self-obsessed, self-important thing. If you want to have fun, play Bodycount.”

Set in the early stages of Bodycount’s African missions, players will assume the role of a Network Operative dropped into a chaotic warzone, tasked with tracking down a militia warlord responsible for massacring an army unit. Players, equipped with a turbo-charged arsenal of weapons including the G36 SMG, Super 90 Shotgun, grenades and proximity mines, must engage forces from all sides in blistering-paced gun-fights set amongst a shanty town.

Encouraged to be aggressive in play-style and liberal when it comes to pulling the trigger, players will shred their way through destructible cover as they battle class-based AI including medics who revive fallen foes and a powerful Psycho Tank. Players can augment their already powerful weapon set by collecting Intel from downed enemies which can then be exchanged on the fly for devastating explosive rounds, one of the game’s four upgrades, which also include airstrikes and adrenaline shots.

By completing combat chains and performing skill kills like headshots and kills through cover, players can earn extra Intel and will be rewarded with a higher score at the end of the mission. To add extra replayability, stats tracking player performance and an overall grade are issued at the end of the mission. In the game’s Bodycount mode players can replay all completed levels to improve their score.

A demo for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will follow. Further details on this release, alongside the latest news, screens and videos, will be released at www.facebook.com/bodycountgame and www.twitter.com/bodycountgame. ;

Bodycount is set to fire into retail on August 30th (North America) and September 2nd (EMEA) for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Horrible..just a horrible demo. The movemet is ridiculously slow as if there's something under your shoes, the shooting is bullshit because you can't aim down the sights/zoom in and walk at the same time (resi style) A.I. is dumb as hell...nah, horrible.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: it's a shame though. 360 had a lot of these games but they are all gone now. I guess they don't only not sell on Japan, neither in the West too. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: unless he takes a few truck loads of cash with him...no. (3 Hours ago)

    Tiz @Moonwalker: His sleep pattern. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I wonder if Phil Spencer's visit to Japan is going to change anything. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker However of all recent Japanese games, I'd say Nier would actually sell decently on it. Of course not in Japan but I bet quite a few people in the West would buy it. I would. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Not necessarily talking about here only but in general. I think we all know that most Japanese games sadly don't sell on Xbox. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: Oh it sure is fun. Combat feels really nice, especially when you get to do the executions. The thing is, there is a shit load of combat and it can get repetitive. How much does it cost? (4 Hours ago)
