A Heavenly Sword demo will be available to download from the PlayStation Network this Thursday, Sony has confirmed to Eurogamer this morning.

It will give PS3 owners a chance to try out the hugely anticipated action game from Ninja Theory ahead of it's projected September release date.

Heavenly Sword is pitched one of Sony's biggest games of the year, and features talent like Andy "Gollum" Serkis and WETA Studios - the visual flare behind Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings.

We recently had the chance to get to grips with the title and see how it was shaping up. Head over to our first impressions of Heavenly Sword to find out what the fuss is about.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
