Spore Releases First Playable Demo at Leipzig
Remember Spore? I totally do. It was going to revolutionize the way we play games, bringing player customization to new levels. That was a few years ago. Spore has since gone into hiding, only poking its nose up every once in a while in sort of a â€œwe are still hereâ€ gesture that involved little more than new screenshots.
Well fret no more Spore fans, as it seems the first exciting news in quite a while has just been confirmed. Spore will be playable at the Leipzig Gaming Convention. This is a big step, as a truly playable version of the title has never been displayed. What has the EA team been working on for these last couple of years? I have trust that the wait will be worth it.
The biggest question that remains unanswered is when Spore will actually hit store shelves. The official word mentions a late-2008 release, but thereâ€™s plenty of precedent that would suggest the date would spill over into 2009. So the game may not be ready just yet, but at least soon we will be able to have a few new videos to tide you over for the next fewâ€¦ years.
