A second demo of PlatinumGames' Vanguish will be released in Europe and North Amercia, SEGA's confirmed to Eurogamer.

The demo, announced for Japan at the Tokyo Game Show last week, will be available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live after Vanquish is released on 22nd October.

A demo of the game, which features a special preview into the story, is already available on PSN and XBLA in all territories.

This second demo will showcase "part of an extra game mode and a separate entity next to the main story," SEGA said.

"This mode will unlock as the player progresses, and we'd like players to earn this themselves by playing through the main game."

Vanquish is from Resident Evil man Shinji Mikami. It's a third-person cover shooter set in the near future when the world's resources are almost depleted.

The Russians and US are violently disputing ownership of a space station designed to draw energy from the sun, and you play a dude in a lightweight mech suit sent in to separate the men from the armoured soldiers with rechargeable shields.

Christian Donlan went hands-on in August.
