Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway Demo Plans

VideoGamer.com has word from Gearbox Software on plans for a Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway demo (thanks Gamer's Hell). The game is currently expected this August (story), but Gearbox president Randy Pitchford is not sure if the demo will be released before or after the game:

Yeah we do have plans for a demo. We haven't actually specifically decided which thing, which bit of the gameplay we're going to put in the demo yet. We're going to do it. I don't know if it will come out before the launch or not. It might not, it might come after. We'll see. But we're going to give a demo, because there are some people who really want to check things out before they buy.

Good to hear, and personally I wish that ALL developers would wait until the product is on the shelves before putting together their demos. If the demo isn't based on final code, it's not really a demo.

Which isn't to say that there's no value in having something out there prior to the release for testing purposes -- just (a) be VERY VERY clear that it's not the demo, and it's not representative, and (b) make sure you do a real demo after the game comes out.

Or if you insist on having a demo out before the game reaches retail, make sure you update the demo post-release.
