Gamers wanting to get their hands on Skyrim before its initial release will be disappointed to know the game won’t have a public demo. This shouldn’t come to you as a surprise, but Bethesda stated the game is just too big and complex for a demo.

In a recent interview with Gameplanet, Bethesda’s Craig Lafferty quickly stated with confidence:

“No, we won’t be doing a demo. For a game of this size and complexity, it’s really hard to do a demo the represents the game.”

So there you have it, no demo. Looks like you’re just going to have to wait until November 11th before you can sink hours of your life into this beast.
