Square Enix announced today the release of a Supreme Commander 2
demo on Xbox 360. It's available today for Gold Members and will be available to Silver members in one week (April 14). The demo includes two tutorial levels as well as two missions from one of the three in-game factions.
You'll be able to experience naval, air and land battles in the demo so it should be a good taste of what to expect from the full game. A demo for a console RTS is a good idea, because players might be more concerned about playability and controls on a console more than anything else.
Leave a comment if you try the demo out to let us know how you think Supreme Commander 2
plays on the 360.
