No Demo for Fallout 3 in the Future


I had a feeling this was going to be the case, but Bethesda’s Pete Hines has now made it official. Regarding the possibility of a demo, Hines said they just wouldn’t be able to offer up one portion of the game to represent the entire piece:

“When you build it as one thing, there’s no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we’re just not going to do,” said Hines. “And it doesn’t really capture the fun of a game like an Elder Scrolls or a Fallout, where you can go where you want and do what you want. So no demo, sorry.”

I kind of figured they were going to say something like that eventually. Fallout 3 just keeps sounding bigger and bigger, so I doubt even a huge demo would do the game any sort of justice.

I agree completely with Hines. It’s kind of sad that we’re not even going to get a little taste though…
