The update, however, brings good news as well. A free demo will be made available on February 25th, which will allow you to test the game and bridge the time until the postponed date. You will be able to play with any of the four character classes during the first hours of the game, either in single player or co-op mode. Your success will also carry over to the complete game in April if you try the demo.

Too bad for the wait, but it sure sounds like a nice idea to have a free demo.
