2007 November 21 - Midway today announced that a new Xbox Live BlackSite: Area 51 demo is available today. The demo highlights two levels from the game's single-player campaign, taking gamers through the Rachel, NV town square and courthouse, and placing players in the gunner's seat during a helicopter escort mission through the desert canyons of Nevada.
The immersive and fast-paced action FPS title, which is available in stores now for Xbox 360 and PC in North America, will ship for PlayStation 3 in North America next month.
BlackSite: Area 51 gives gamers a chance to direct their living, breathing squad mates with a context-sensitive "One-Button Squad Command" control. Destructible environments can be reduced to rubble, creating interactive cover points that can be blown away with enough firepower.
