Q-Games has released a free PSN demo for PixelJunk Shooter 2, allowing new players to go to battle with the old 'veterans'.

Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Q-Games' Rowan Parker said:

"Join in the assault on our Veteran players over the weekend. There's new big bounties on the heads of higher ranked players (especially those in our Sun League) and PixelJunk Shooter 2 staff will be in the mix playing all weekend!"

This weekend would be a good time to play some PixelJunk Shooter, it would seem.

As a "salute to the battle prowess" of existing players, Q-Games is releasing a new map, too.

"We should advise you though," said Parker, "that while dredging up this ancient stage, a few blocks might have come loose. You've been warned..."
