Want to Play the Heavy Rain Demo Right Now? Here’s How.

1 min read


The Heavy Rain Demo will be released on the PSN on February 23. If that’s just too long for you to wait, here’s how you can get it right now.

Sony have released an Augmented reality browser game called Precinct 52, the completion of which nets you early access to the demo. In the Augmented Reality game, you’re tasked with providing 4 sets of evidence – and on successful handover you’ll be awarded with a code for the demo. If you want to play the game and solve the case for yourself, click here.

If you’re a cheating monkey and just want the quick answer to bag the demo, hit the jump.

You cheating monkey!

Anyway, the four pieces of evidence you’ll require are :

• Short cigarette (117b)
• Origami bird
• Coffee shop C (it says "diner")
• 117h (tyre tracks).

There are numerous coffee shops so make sure to choose the correct one. The writing on the the tracks is also apparently quite difficult to read.

If you manage to play the demo, let us know what tou think.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Good luck trying to get one… I’m guessing the site is under heavy load because sometimes it will load other times not. The furthest I got was clicking on the door. then it just kept on loading…

      I’ve also been trying, to no avail.

      Gonna keep trying though, will hopefully manage a bit later.

    I see there is a message now.

    “We are currently working to address some site issues caused by overwhelming demand.
    Sincere apologies for the delay, and please check back shortly. “

    Awesome. Got my code.

    But from the sounds of things the demo was rushed and quite glitchy! Not sure if I want to ‘waste’ the bandwidth – I’ve already decided I’m getting the game.
