Play Heavy Rain Demo A Week Early
Although Heavy Rain won't hit US store shelves until February 23, there's always the confirmed demo.
The playable demo, which features two chapters and about 30 minutes of play time, will come to the PSN on Thursday, February 11. But man...that's a whole 6 days away; what if you could nab a sample of one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusives now? It's easy enough, actually. You may recall that Four Days Challenge, which had you warming up for the mystery of the game by participating in a little mini-game of sorts. If you were one of the participants and you managed to land the four necessary pieces of evidence, you can indeed download the demo today. However, maybe you didn't sign up. Or if you did, maybe you just didn't stumble across the solution. No problem. If you did the Four Days Challenge, head on over to a special site called Precinct 52, where you play an "alternate reality game" that asks you to submit those four pieces of evidence from the Four Days Challenge. If you didn't do the Challenge head over to Kotaku for the cheat sheet. You cheater, you.
At the time of this writing, the Precinct 52 site was down due to "overwhelming demand;" maybe they didn't think the answers to the Four Days Challenge would've leaked out, or maybe they underestimated everyone's desire to play the demo a week early. Either way, we're here to tell you that our review will go live a day before the demo "officially" arrives on the 11th. Just so you know...
