Set to hit shelves Feb. 14, Codemasters’ new stealth-based first-person shooter is now available to gamers as a single-player, stand-alone PC demo that can be downloaded from www.codemasters.com/igi2. An all-new promotional video titled Scope can also be seen on the site.
The IGI 2: Covert Strike playable demo calls for stealth tactics and sharp shooting skills. The mission is set in a goldmine in the Carpathian foothills of Romania and casts David Jones as an IGI (Institute for Geotactical Intelligence) agent, investigating the theft of an advanced nano-technology device by an organized crime syndicate.
In the demo, players will infiltrate the main enemy compound through mineshafts from the foothills. A private security firm patrols the mining facility. Since a local mafia don backs the security firm, the officers are well armed and have instructions to shoot first and ask questions later.
In November, multiplayer beta test sessions for the title attracted more than 30,000 gamers, double the number expected.
