Mercenaries 2 demo, DLC planned

DLC is already "up and running".

Pandemic Studios plans to release a Mercenaries 2 demo and will also support the openworld action game with downloadable content.

"I'm not sure of dates or anything like that but yes, we want to do a demo," Cameron Brown, Pandemic's creative director, told Eurogamer.

What's more, "There has been a lot of effort and energy put into downloadable content. We have it up and running on the consoles where you can trigger it and do it.

"We're definitely playing with it and it's definitely something we see as an enormous opportunity," he said.

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is due out on PS3, 360, PS2 and PC on 5th September, and you can read more about how it's taking shape in our exclusive interview.

But if you can't be bothered, here's the short version: you can reduce everything in the world to rubble, and you have tassels on your beard.
