Today sees the playable demo for Steel Battalion Heavy Armor hit Xbox LIVE. Experience the true feeling of war by taking control of a Vertical Tank and getting introduced to your fellow crew members in the first two levels of the game. A Kinect for Xbox 360 exclusive, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor is set for release on June 19th in North America and on June 22nd across Europe.

Head to our [Capcom] press site now to download a brand new trailer that focuses on training you to pilot a Vertical Tank using the unique combination of Microsoft’s Kinect and standard controller and experience war like never before – without losing the precision demanded of a first person shooter.

Set in 2082, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of computers, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. In this low-tech era, there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war – the Vertical Tank. Players take on the role of VT pilot Sgt. Powers as the battle to regain the United States from Chinese occupation begins.
