With 35 square miles of adrenaline-fuelled gameplay, the demo is packed with opportunities for chaos. Set in the stunning south-western Panaun desert, the demo area contains a full 16 civilian towns and military bases, one of the 50 government colonels to hunt down and assassinate, air challenges, pickups, numerous military and civilian vehicles and one complete, full-game mission, containing an assault on a mountain-top radar station, ending in one of sandbox gaming’s most memorable car chases!
