Play Heavenly Sword this week

You've been drooling over sexy shots of Sony's Heavenly Sword in action for months, and as of this Thursday you'll be able to download the demo to play it for yourself, Sony has confirmed.

The demo is short and sweet, only lasting around 10 minutes or so but giving you a nice taster of the multiple-style fighting system, the interactive cutscenes and physics-based scenery.

You'll take on a group of men on a high cliff, slide acrobatically down three huge ropes and land in an object-filled courtyard where you can use the scenery around you to batter another dozen soldiers.

We expect the demo to be available for download from the PS Store by the end of this week.
