No Skyrim Demo Planned

A video interview posted a couple of days back talks with Craig Lafferty at E3 about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the next installment in Bethesda's epic role-playing series. The discussion covers a few general topics, and along the way Craig admits there will be no playable demo: "No, we won't be doing a demo. With a game of this size and complexity, it's really hard to do a demo that represents the game, you know, truly. And we have to... and you know, it would be a giant demo as well, so we won't be doing a demo." Thanks Eurogamer.

In the olden days when demos were common, you just package the executable, delete all the level files except the first (or first couple) and add an exit with the "buy now" page. It takes a couple hours of effort at most, and the files are small and easy to deal with.

Making a proper demo for a game like Skyrim could take weeks. It's just not worth it.


If I recall...Oblivion started in a dungeon...

Do you really think a starter dungeon is a good representation of what an Elder Scrolls game has to offer?


Good video games are like good books...they should be able to hook you in the first chapter.
