Capcom will release the multiplayer demo for Bionic Commando on Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow.

The publisher kept us waiting until the last minute for a specific date, telling us a demo would arrive sometime in "the coming weeks". Capcom also said there are "no plans" to offer a similar demo on PS3.

The demo will include the Vertigo map, on which up to eight friends can swing around and try to kill each other. Of course, the inclusion of a bionic arm - the game's main attraction - mixes the regular Deathmatch formula up.

These are best illustrated by Tom Bramwell, who filmed himself getting to grips with the third-person action game for Eurogamer TV. Watch him struggle at first, before becoming competent and then rather adept, as is his way.

Bionic Commando launches for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 22nd May. Check out our hands-on impressions to see how the game's shaping up.
