Atari Australia has announced the Xbox Live and Games For Windows demo for their upcoming release, Clive Barker's Jericho, is now available from the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PC demo is available from the Atari website or from the official Codemasters Jericho page. The PS3 demo will be available from the PlayStation Network from October 4.
Clive Barker's Jericho dispatches players to the Middle-Eastern city of Al-Khali. Controlling the Jericho squad, a team skilled in both conventional and paranormal warfare, players fight through different time periods from the city's history on a gruelling journey to unravel the legend of the First Born, God's first aborted creation of man and source of ultimate evil.

Thrusting gamers into the heart of this unique horror FPS, the demo is taken from the time of the Crusades in Al-Khali's past. A vicious attack has divided the squad, with one half presumed lost. As the demo opens, players join Sergeant Billie Church, Lieutenant Abigail Black and Sergeant Frank Delgado in the blood-drenched sewers and catacombs of a fortress.
Sounds decidedly Clive Barker. We'll be grabbing the demo and sharing our thoughts on the game in the coming days (so if you don't want to waste bandwidth yet, just hold out for the AusGamers Jericho treatment).

Update: Now available locally right here from AusGamers Files.

In november I gotta buy:

Asassin's Creed
Metroid Prime: Corruption
Army of Two
Mass Effect
Mario Galaxy (looking to break a trend and buy my first mario game)

Then theres games which look interesting but I'm not 100% sold on yet like Kane and Lynch, Need for Speed: Pro street, Sonic & Mario olympics, COD4 and Jericho. Its just a ridiculous month for games, I'm gonna be so broke :(

Word Khel.

Also, that Atari link is now fixed, but you can just get the game here now anyway :)

I dunno how you guys can say it needs a monster of a pc to run. I had it all on high, 4x AA and it was fine. Looked great too.

This demo has really raised my hopes for this game. Great graphics, fun gameplay, twisted story with equally twisted enemys. Radical!

Everyone likes a different style of game.... I like the Rainbow 6 style of games and FPS shooters, but always try something new... for me this was a total waste of time and bandwidth...

There is nothing i can see in this demo that is even remotely good, for me. Its also a terrible port, the graphics are just average by todays standard. I enjoyed Doom 3 more than this, and I didnt really enjoy that!

As the others have said above, there is nothing new here and its actually a lot worse than some recent games. The AI has no brain, and its simply a zombie killing fest.. if you enjoy that mindless clicking.
