Eidos has wired to tell us that Battlestations: Pacific demos for Xbox 360 and PC launch on 30th April [Sorry! - Ed]. The game isn't coming out on PS3, in case you're confused.
The samplers offer one mission from the US campaign, in which an unlucky American carrier fleet is being bombarded by fearless Japanese kamikaze pilots.
Two multiplayer modes - Island Capture and Siege - are also bundled in, although both will only be playable offline against AI bots.
Battlestations: Pacific launches on 15th May, two weeks after the demo.
Zip over to our Battlestations: Pacific gamepage to see what's improved in the series' second instalment.
