A playable Xbox 360 Kinect demo for Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth is now available for download worldwide via Xbox Live. The download is only currently available for Xbox Live Gold members, but it will be available to all in one week. The timing, of course, is due to the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray release of The Avengers this week.
During the Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth demo, players will travel back in time to the iconic tropical preserve The Savage Land, a hidden region surrounded by volcanoes and prehistoric creatures , for a single player ‘Best of 3’ battle to defend the Marvel Universe. Using their full body to punch, kick and dodge enemy attacks, players will unleash the devastating power of The Hulk and lay down the legendary Mjolnir (hammer) as Thor against the Super Villain duo of Captain America Skrull and Magneto.
Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth is a superhero brawler set in comic book-style art environments based on the Secret Invasion storyline. Battle for Earth has a variety of gameplay modes including co-op, campaign, arcade, challenges, versus and tournament. Fans can play as superheroes or villains, including Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Loki.
Developed by Ubisoft Quebec, Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth will be released for Xbox 360 on October 30 (in North America) and for the Nintendo Wii U this Holiday season.
