A demo for Gravity Rush 2 will be available to download tomorrow, Dec. 22, from the PlayStation Store, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment announced today.

Players will be able to choose from two paths through the demo. One is designed for people who are familiar with the original Gravity Rush and the powers that Kat possesses; the other is meant for players who are new to the series.

Nick Accordino, associate project manager on Gravity Rush 2 at Sony Interactive Entertainment America, confirmed in the comments of the PlayStation Blog post announcing the demo that it’s the same content Sony showed at E3 2016. The demo is also the same one that was playable at Tokyo Game Show 2016; in fact, Sony released that demo in September after the convention, but only for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Japan.

“Now you can try it out again in English,” said Accordino, responding to a comment from someone who had played the Japanese demo.

Gravity Rush 2 was originally set to be released earlier this month on PlayStation 4, but the developers announced a delay in October. The game will now be available Jan. 20. An anime short called Gravity Rush the Animation ~Overture~, which takes place between the two games, will go live on YouTube at 11 a.m. ET on Dec. 26.
