Lost Planet 2 co-op demo hits Xbox LIVE next week

It looks like Xbox LIVE Gold members will be able to connect with four buddies and shoot the crap out of giant, icy monsters next week.

Capcom has revealed that a Lost Planet 2 cooperative demo will be made available for Xbox LIVE Gold members on August 19. Silver members can either pony up to upgrade to Gold, or patiently wait a week when the demo becomes available to all on August 26. 

From the sounds of things, it appears the demo is the same as what Capcom had on display at E3, a four-on-one battle against a gigantic insect creature. This is not an easy battle to win — Dale, Hamza, and I fought hard to take down the beast, failing at least once (or twice) in the process. The results of victory were worth it, though; I’ll let you find out what I mean on your own. Just don’t take your eye off the creature, even after it falls.

No word on demos for the PlayStation 3 or PC.
