The hilarious action-adventure game, Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed, was released earlier this year on August 30. It is a remake of the 2006 original Destroy All Humans! 2, developed by Black Forest Games and published by THQ Nordic. Though the game is available to play on PC and Xbox Series X|S as well, PlayStation just gave its players a little incentive to check it out if they haven’t already. PlayStation has made a demo of the game free to play and released a demo trailer for the PlayStation 5 version of the remake on YouTube, hoping to show hesitant buyers what they’re missing.
If you haven’t picked up the remake yet, we’re not sure a demo will be the solution. It’s a sequel and a remake, so it’s basically a game made for a pre-existing fanbase. But why look a gift horse in the mouth? A free demo is a chance to save $40 for a little entertainment if the game just isn’t currently in your budget. You can find the demo on the PlayStation store, though neither the website nor the YouTube page mentions how much of the game will be available to play. The description for the video is more of an invitation: “Still unsure if Furon Technology is right for you? Now’s the time to try out the swinging ’60s as Crypto!”
The demo trailer below doesn’t show anything we haven’t seen before. Crypto dancing with his new body part to impress the ladies only to be interrupted by a KGB operative is such an excellent way to begin. “Get hooked. Play the demo,” is the addition to the beginning sequence that makes this a “demo trailer.” If the following montage of jetpacks, electric guns, brainwashing, and irreverent banter doesn’t sell you, we’re not sure what will.
Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is available to play on Xbox Series X|S, PC, and PlayStation 5 now. Join the alien Crypto ten years after the first game. It’s the 1960’s and things are getting groovy for the little horny Furon. He’s ready to get his revenge on the KGB for blowing up the Furon mothership in the first game, and thanks to the reboot, he has plenty of flashy tools to do it. Using your jetpack and a variety of alien tech, you will get to explore five different locations: Bay City, Albion, Takoshima, Tunguska, and the Solaris moon base. Obviously, these are made-up cities, but they are parodies of San Francisco, Tokyo, and London. This version of the game also features a single-player mode and a two-player split-screen co-op mode of gameplay, so you can wreak havoc alone or with a buddy. So if you’re new to the series but interested in giving it a try, here’s your chance to get hooked.
