No Demo for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda will not be releasing a demo for Skyrim, the next installment in the Elder Scrolls RPG series.

Producer Craig Lafferty told Gameplanet:

No, we won’t be doing a demo. For a game of this size and complexity it’s really hard to do a demo that represents the game truly. And it would have to be a gigantic demo. So we won’t be doing a demo.

However, we’re guaranteed to see downloadable content:

We’ll definitely do DLC. For previous games, DLC has been very popular, so we’ll keep doing that.

While I can’t say I’m happy that there will be no demo for Skyrim, I feel a well-established franchise like the Elder Scrolls can afford to skip on a demo — the weight of its title and the name of its publisher is enough to guarantee sales on faith alone.
