Ubi not planning a demo of Far Cry 2

Eurogamer report that a demo for the upcoming release of Far Cry 2 is not very likely. The reason for the lack of a demo is reportedly due to the scope of the game, along with the game’s open-world nature.

One reason is, even if we were to give out what you played today – even if we put invisible walls around it and said, here’s the demo, you can go anywhere you like inside these walls and play it how you want – that’s potentially right there eight-to-ten hours of gameplay. I don’t know too many people who are willing to give away a 12-hour game for free,” comments the games creative director Clint Hocking.

Far Cry 2 and it’s 50 km2 gameplay environment will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in October.
