The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim won't see a demo released before its launch later this year, as Bethesda, its developer and publisher says that the game is too big and complicated, so releasing a short demo wouldn't allow gamers to really make an impression of how the title will actually play.
is one of the biggest role-playing games set to appear later this year, with Bethesda continuing its highly successful Elder Scrolls series and promising a brand new and less glitch-prone engine, enhanced graphics and an overhaul of the traditional role-playing mechanics.
As you can imagine, Skyrim is already on top of the wishlists of many gamers, and others are just hoping for a demo to appear in order to make sure that they'll enjoy the experience.
Sadly for them, Bethesda has confirmed to Gameplanet
that a demo for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim won't be released, largely because of the scale of the title that can't be shrunk into a batch of short adventures for a demo and really show off what experience it can deliver.
"No, we won't be doing a demo," said Bethesda producer Craig Lafferty. "For a game of this size and complexity it's really hard to do a demo the represents the game truly. And it would have to be a gigantic demo. So we won't be doing a demo."
Skyrim is set to once again show off Bethesda's RPG experience and will no doubt offer a lengthy campaign that sees players enter the role of a Dovahkiin, aka a human with dragon blood, who needs to rescue the mythical land of Skyrim in front of the menacing Alduin.
Players will be able to use regular weapons like swords or axes, as well as magic and special dragon shouts, which deal massive damage to actual dragons or other enemies during your battles.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is set to appear on November 11, for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
