Red face Jedi Knight 2 demo?

Hi,

Does anybody know if and when a demo of Jedi Knight 2 will be available for download?

Considering it comes out to buy in less than a month and still no demo. Are they trying to hide something?

Bye,
Devil-Eyes

They will wait until the full game goes Gold, then take a vacation, and then release a demo to try and convince those who didn't already buy the game to try it out.


Don't expect a "qtest" type of pre-release demo. It doesn't look like they are going to do it.

Damn confident and capable programmers. Arrogant they are! They likely won't have to patch the game either!

In the latest chat with Raven they did say a demo would come out after the game goinf gold. They also said they are very very close to going gold. Might not have to wait too long. I for one can't wait

this question gets OVERASKED. i don't care if there's a demo or not. the real question is.....will there be warez?

J/K!!!!!!!!! I'm anxious for a demo too and when one comes out we'll ALL know.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

id want a demo but if we got a demo before release it would push back the game *explodes from the though of JK2 being delayed cause of the people that want a demo before its released*

The "Gone Gold Status" is overrated. I mean come on, how many games goes gold and then keeps you waiting for two more weeks just to make the copys that you buy? Ok, maybe not two weeks but definatily one week.

Well having that said I don't think we'll have to wait that long for JK2 after going gold, LucasArts usually have that under a good control. Let's just hope that Activision's that fast over here in Europe...

Going gold means the game is finished and goes in to production.

The game creators (Raven in this case) make one CD with the finished product and that is taken to a factory or whatever who create thousands of them.

Now i dont think its still the case, but it used to be that that one finished game CD the creators made, it was a gold cd, and known as the gold master.

Therefor going gold means that the game is done and goes into mass production

I believe CDs are "mass-burned" according to laser templates. It's not like writing a CD on your PC, in which there's one laser beam that does all the work, it's many beams working simultaneously to create instant CDs.

because it takes time to make a demo they dont just take a part from the actual game and if they make a level that will only be in a demo it would take even longer
