No Assassin's Creed demo

Too difficult!

Jade Raymond has said there won't be an Assassin's Creed demo ahead of the game's release in November.

Speaking in a roundtable interview at Tokyo Game Show posted by Gametrailers (if you listen carefully you'll hear our own Kristan Reed asking a few questions), Raymond answers a question about the prospect of a demo: "No, we're not making a demo."

Apparently that's because Assassin's Creed is too much of a sandbox game. "There was no way to really make a demo," Raymond said, "and I think that's the same reason that games like GTA don't have a demo - when you have a city it's hard to figure out exactly what you put on there."

They did try to come up with a solution, she says, but in the end they gave up.

Assassin's Creed, which sees players take on the role of an assassin during the Third Crusade or is it the Third Crusade etc, is due out on PS3, 360 and PC in November, and you can read more about it in our cunningly titled Assassin's Creed first impressions.
