No demo coming for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda reveals no demo but DLC still coming

It was announced by Bethesda that there would be no playable demo before the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

According to a New Zealand video interview, Creative Lead Craig Lafferty revealed that the scope and size of the game is just too big for it to fit into a demo and that no demo could properly give an accurate portrayal of the game.

Lafferty told Gameplanet: "For a game of this size and complexity its really hard to do a demo the represents the game truly. And it would have to be a gigantic demo. So we wont be doing a demo."

This is a shame to those that wanted to try out The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but then again did you really need a demo to convince you to buy this game?
