Lucas Arts has told CVG that a demo of Fracture will be released simultaneously on PSN and XBL in "August or September".

The third-person shooter takes a punt at innovation with a terrain deformation system that allows you to literally morph hills and craters into the ground using a gun called the Entrencher.

Lucas Arts told us that the demo would be the same as the version we played yesterday, which contained a tutorial stage leading into an action level in which you can try out all the land-bending trickery.

Multiplayer options were not included.

Look out for hands-on impressions of the game, along with brand new assets, on CVG soon.
