Just Cause demo on 360/PC

See how island living suits.

A playable demo of Avalance and Eidos' Just Cause has parachuted onto both Xbox Live and, er, the PC. Internet. Thing.

The full game's due out next month on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox and PS2, and sees players tackling the huge free-roaming environment of San Esperito using vehicles and all sorts.

The demo, meanwhile, features a bespoke island section that's just a tiny spec compared to the full game.

It weighs in at 632MB on Xbox Live, where it's available everywhere except Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore or Taiwan, and the PC demo is 543MB.
