As promised, EA has released a demo of The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II through Xbox Live Marketplace.
The demo weighs in at 848.84MB and includes single and multiplayer elements.
Offline, as well a tutorial to show you how you're meant to play an RTS game on a control pad, there's the first mission of the War in the North campaign.
That's not all the Lord of the Rings content on Marketplace either - with a theme pack having been added recently too.
The Battle for Middle-earth II is out in Europe on Xbox 360 today.
