nothing offical has been announced.
so there is nothing to cnfirm nor deny it.
I know there is at least one demo if not more.
the problem is that with a demo released to the public, they would have to make a special build of it as to hide all the stuff they dont want you to know about before the game release.
They would also have to remake the whole city in a separate program because from what I understand it will be atotally open landscape and you'll be able to go anywhere on the map and for a demo that be to big thus they would have to make a special build for it which would take time and take away from them working on AC to begin with and thus it would almost be counter-productive

with that said.... GOD I HOPE THEY RELEASE A DEMO SOON http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

No official word on a demo, but expect it to reach consumer hands a few months before release. And as there is no real release date yet, dont expect a demo any time soon.

so halo 3 demo gets announced long before it is actually playable, and they release the actual playdate a month ahead of time.

dont know how you want to take that little tidbit, but a june demo is definitly possible.

actually, the halo 3 BETA is not a demo, a public beta test is quite different from a demo. so comparing an Assassin's Creed demo to the Halo 3 beta is not a fair comparison.

silentassasin05

Exactly. A beta is a playable test where people go through the game and report anything bad or that needs to be changed back to the company. This is so the company can then go and make adjustments to the game to try and make it better before release, hence why its released so early. A demo is a playable version of the game that is ment to give a taster to the consumer so they can decide whether they want to buy it or not. Usually, the game is around 90% complete when the demo is released, which is why they come out like a month before actual game release.

Technically there are already playable demos of the game though that they have shown at gaming conventions. I was lead to believe that some people got to play the game/test it out.

Well, the demo could still be released before the game releases (e.g. R6:V, GRAW2). I just never expect a demo to be released more than a month before the game releases. So, I suppose it's still possible for a demo to be released in June. August would be a more realistic hope, though, imo.

i dont really mind as long as the game is nice.

You all should be happy.

He used the search function like it's been preached so diligently.

Normally, after 120 days, a topic is deemed completely dead and resurrecting said topic is against most ToU rules but in this instance, it's been less than 60 days since the last post was made.

So, what's the big deal? He didn't start a brand new topic and his post wasn't completely pointless. In fact, his near pointless post probably helped things by bringing this topic back up to top so that new people here will see it and be deterred from creating another topic asking about a demo.

oh man, i wish the demo comes out soon. I went on holiday and came back on September, and still nothing. How come? Don't demos come out like a few months before the actual thing? Or is it different?
I shure hope we get a demo soon.

cooldude6681
09-07-2007, 03:11 PM
Ubisoft never releases demos more than a month before the game comes out, and usually not more than a couple weeks before it comes out. According to Patrice Desilets (Creative Director for AC), the release is November 2007. If we get a demo, it'll probably be released between mid-October and mid-November. And that's a pretty big if. Last I heard, we won't be getting a demo at all.

by "Demo" you mean demo like the one that was in E3?
only a small thing from the game...a mission with Talal? Do you want this? (HELL YEAH)

And if that demo will comes out...will it be free or will it cost money?

the games out in two months why bother wanting a demo?

Altair_92
09-17-2007, 03:14 PM
Cause demos are fun and REALLY help many people decide if they want the game or not.

The RB6 and LP demos helped me make a decision when thinking about if I wanted to buy them or not. The demos we're fun so I ended up getting them.


AC looks great, but who knows.

(Warning - Bioshock rant. ^^) - Bioshock looked fun and was at first, but then got very repetitive. I looked at the Bioshock downloadable artbook online and saw all of the creatures that they thought about putting into the game. I was angry cause they didn't use ANY of them. It would have made the game more fun and scary. It got to the point to where I just wanted to quit because I was so sick of the same splicers walking around.

I hope that AC doesn't turn into this.

There's a demo coming out for Crysis next tuesday, and Crysis is also coming out in November. Don't see any reason why Assassin's Creed couldn't have a demo soon.

cooldude6681
09-20-2007, 02:19 AM
Crysis is being developed by CryTek studios; Assassin's Creed is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
Crysis is a first person shooter, IE you can easily limit the length of the demo, considering the linear gameplay; Assassin's Creed is a sandbox game, IE you can't limit the size of accessible area without limiting the mission to a nonrepresentative scale.

There's two reasons.

aappleyard
09-21-2007, 02:31 PM
BTW i believe that Crysis is open world just like Assassins creed as i read that ion the Crysis forum and that for the demo they will be using a similar thing to Saints row. Cut off other parts of the map by placing a barrier so why not AC? :P

BTW Crysis is also a sandbox game too. IF you were to just sit back and do nothing the game would oplay with or without you so its a fully functioning island :P. To be honest i understand it must be hard to cut down a game toa demo but not redidulusly hard that its not worth the time:P. All it requires is to place a barrier around an area of a city and then remove everything else.

Id be happy if the demo was just one city black in size or what ever and there wasnt any of the rest of the city just a blank screen. I wana run up some walls and climb stuff Wooo!
