No Fallout 4 Demo and Here's Why

The full game arrives in just two weeks.


Bethesda will not offer a demo version of its upcoming RPG Fallout 4, the developer has confirmed. Writing on Twitter, marketing executive Pete Hines explained why that won't happen. "No demo," he said to a fan who asked about it. "Not possible to cut up the game into a small piece."

Gamers on the fence about buying Fallout 4, then, may want to wait to read reviews or see more gameplay. Demos for sprawling, AAA games aren't uncharted territory, however, as a free demo version of Bungie's shooter Destiny is currently available to try on consoles.

Fallout 4 launches on November 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The post-apocalyptic game recently went gold, while its trophies/achievements have emerged. On top of that, Microsoft has said it is confident that Rise of the Tomb Raider and Fallout 4--which launch on the same day--can both enjoy success.
