Ubisoft has announced that a VIP demo for Tom Clancy's EndWar will be available to download for free from Xbox LIVE if you pre-order the game from UK retailer Gamestation.

"We believe EndWar will revolutionize the strategy genre on consoles and are thrilled gamers will be able to get a little taste of why we are so excited about EndWar's release this holiday season," said John Parkes, EMEA Marketing Director at Ubisoft. "With its innovative voice command and intuitive game design, fans will be able to learn first hand how a console game was able to win the judges over and win Best Strategy Game of E3 for the first time in a category previously dominated by PC titles."

The VIP demo will begin in early October and will give gamers a taste of multiplayer voice-controlled RTS action. The demo will also serve as a final stress test for the online portion of the game. Ubisoft recommends that you pre-order early as download codes will be given out on a first-come first-served basis.

Tom Clancy's EndWar is due for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in November.
