NEW Blacksite Demo Available on XBOX Live!

Midway today announced that a new Xbox Live BlackSite demo is available today. The demo highlights two levels from the game's single-player campaign, taking gamers through the Rachel, NV town square and courthouse, and placing players in the gunner's seat during a helicopter escort mission through the desert canyons of Nevada.

The immersive and fast-paced action FPS title, which is available in stores on November 30th for Xbox 360 and PC in Europe, and will ship for PlayStation 3 in Europe in Q1 of 2008.

BlackSite gives gamers a chance to direct their living, breathing squad mates with a context-sensitive "One-Button Squad Command" control. Destructible environments can be reduced to rubble, creating interactive cover points that can be blown away with enough firepower.
