It should come as no surprise that one of the best ways to turn people on to a new intellectual property prior to its release is through a free demo. Speaking with Develop about the upcoming FPS Singularity, producer Kekoa Lee-Creel stated Activision views the demo as ?absolutely critical? to the game?s success.

In a sea of popular shooters, especially sequels, Singularity is banking on a good demo to win over gamers. One of the unique aspects of Singularity, from Raven Software, is the Time Manipulation Device -- a gadget that ages enemies and environmental objects.


?We?re definitely on track to release a demo,? Lee-Creel stated, ?that?s absolutely critical. Singularity plays well; the conventional weapons feel good, the TMD (Time Manipulation Device) feels really natural being mapped to the shoulder buttons. It?s so hard to convey how a game feels, but I have confidence that once we can cross that threshold I think we?re good.?

Singularity is set for a fall release on PlayStation 3.

Raven's Singularity pushed to 2010 because of Modern Warfare 2

Amazon just changed the expected ship date of Singularity to the first quarter of 2010, the first news that the game has been delayed. This seems atypical of Singularity?s developer, Raven Software, since it is a heavyweight developer with plenty of experience and titles, including Quake 4 and the recent X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

With no official word on the matter, IGN contacted Activision, Singularity?s publisher, and was told that since Singularity is a shooter, it?s being moved out of the way for its own sake and the sake of Modern Warfare 2, which would have likely swallowed Singularity whole.

?The level of excitement for Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 coming out of E3 well exceeded our expectations and therefore we have decided to move Raven's upcoming sci-fi first person action title, Singularity, from 2009 to Q1 2010. We believe that the March quarter will provide a better opportunity to establish the new cutting-edge action IP as a ?must-have? title and clears the way for Modern Warfare 2 to dominate this holiday season,? Activision explained.
