The Outfit Suited for Xbox Live Demo

THQ today announced that to promote the upcoming launch of The Outfit, created by internal studio Relic Entertainment, the company is setting the standard for next-gen online gaming, offering the first pre-launch online multiplayer demo for the Xbox 360. The demo, available on Xbox Live free of charge, will allow consumers to experience one of The Outfit’s intense multiplayer maps with up to eight people battling it out online over Xbox Live. Gamers can also download the multiplayer demo to their Xbox 360 and go head-to-head with a friend via Split Screen. The Outfit, a WWII squad-based combat game, is scheduled to release for Xbox 360 on Tuesday, March 14, with a suggested retail price of $59.99.

In addition, THQ and Relic Entertainment announced plans today to develop and release downloadable content to The Outfit players post launch, utilizing the full potential of the Xbox Live Marketplace. The content, which will include a series of multiplayer map-packs, will allow gamers to continuously extend their entertainment experience. New multiplayer map-packs are scheduled to be release periodically over the next 12 months.
