THQ has said it will be unleashing demos for Conan next week.

Those of you on Live will be able to get your hands on its muscularity on 8th October, followed by a bulge in the PlayStation Network on the 11th.

Conan was released in Europe a couple of weeks ago, and proved to be a solid and entertaining effort. It wasn't really ambitious enough to ever topple a game like God of War, and missed some key ingredients like co-operative or multiplayer modes, but its gory and tongue-in-cheek blend of third-person hackandslash kept us smiling nonetheless.
