Let's face it. No matter how badly we may want to, not all of us can just go to Japan and get some hands-on time with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. For the lucky few, however, Kojima Productions has detailed the playable demos they're bringing to TGS 09.
First off, there are two ways to play the demo. You can line up at the Peace Walker Demo Play Area and get your hands on a demo unit. If you'd rather not wait in line, you can download a copy of the demo from the Demo Download Areas.
The one at the Demo Play Area is different, though, as it contains one extra mission that's not included in the downloadable demo. Those who play the demo will also get a t-shirt, a special badge, and some TGS-exclusive PSP button attachments. Here's what it contains:
The downloadable version of the demo will not include the "Infiltrate the Mountain Facility" mission. Those who opt for the download should also make sure that their units are at firmware 6.00 and that they have at least 200MB of free space on their memory sticks.
- Tutorial/Opening (1 Player) - This mission includes the introduction of the story, the explanation of the control schematics, and a training session. Recommend for first-time players.
- Neutralize the Stronghold (1 - 2 Players) - This is a sneaking mission in which the player must neutralize a base that is under enemy control. For intermediate players.
- Infiltrate the Mountain Facility (1 - 2 Players) - This is a sneaking mission in which the player must infiltrate an enemy facility that is located in a mountainous region. For intermediate players.
- Tank Battle (1 - 4 Players) - This mission's goal is the disarmament of the enemy tank and reinforcements. For advanced players.
