Ubisoft: No Assassin's Creed 2 demo
No demo of Assassin's Creed 2 - that's the short form of Ubisoft's recent statement. To test the game one has to go to an event or trade fair. As an alternative it can be borrowed in video rental shops.
Ubisoft apparently confirmed that there won't be a demo version of Assassin's Creed 2. An Ubisoft employee told Connected Consoles that the game will only be presented on events and trade shows. It would also be possible to get the game in a rental store. Thus Ubisoft does not deliver an appetizer for the community - the same behavior as when part one was released.
The original Assassins Creed didn't have a public demo which did anger fans and most likely affected the games overall sales. Though if you did play the full game, you would have been impressed. Today however, we can reveal that there will be no public demo (other than exhibitions) for the highly anticipated sequel to the 2007 action-adventure.
Whilst playing a level of the game at today's Eurogamer Expo, a Ubisoft representative told Connected Consoles that the game will not be getting a demo. This time however, this could be a safer decision for Ubi to choose as Assassins Creed II has been highly improved in most areas.
