From the latest PCGamer Podcast, they stated that the demo for EAW will be in their March Issue. As we all know the March issue comes out in early February.

The demo is supposed to come out by the end of January. So it should already be out by the time the magazine gets out. But, don't quote me.. this could change at any time.

It won't come out only on cd, it's just anti-marketting.

I would hate if the demo comes out on 23:59:59 of 15th February............

I'm just going to wait and buy the game when it comes out. The demo isn't going to be worth it for me if it comes out around the same time as the retail version of EAW.

Yes, you must always remember this (LFN) is an International Site ... even though it's based in the US.

That is Interesting that PC gamer is actually going to put the demo on the disk, too bad I don't get it... Although it is always good for lucasfiles!

as far as i know PC gamer is available in most european countries and the US. but as to it being on the cover disk, they have said that a (cant remember what it was) demo will be on the next issues cover disk and it never appeared. (maybe due to the demo not being rolled out at the time of going to press, i dont know).

i know we have been disappointed by delays for release of the game and the demo so dont get excited about getting it on the cover disk as things can change between announcement and the magazing going to press.

PC Gamer also has a UK version.

So it helps to mention which version (US or UK, or if there are any other PC Gamer versions out there ) you're talking about.

How do you get that from his quote? Which stated nothing about the demo note. No one knows for sure when the demo will be released not even Lucasarts or Pter at this time i think. Not counting the PC gamer, when lucasarts will release it online...

It will be in PC Gamer. If they don't put it in there they can be sued for False Advertising.

Not really. They can only be sued for that if the demo is listed on the DVD case/magazine cover and isn't included. Many things are subject to change before release, for example, the Venator. One minute it's out, next it's in, then it's out again. :|

The edition goes on sale on Jan 19th in the UK - and I would really expect to see a full preview or even review of the game.

the 19th UK gotcha. So does that mean the demo should show up in the uk version too?
also it's been confirmed my Delphi that the demo will be sp.(i hope it goes on the internet before the 19th)

I doubt we will see the Demo until Friday Feb 2nd/2006. Exactly two weeks before release. LEC has probably (or is doing now) providing reviewable builds to all the major game sites/mags so they can release updated previews inorder to hype the game. They will then release the demo on the 2nd to us so we can get hyped up for the 16th.

That is true but as games are so expensive a demo lets you decide whether or not to spend the money on the final game. I am sure that there are many levels and lots of multiplayer games to be played. I don't mind doing one level from the game or even a skirmish map just to check it out.

Siddus from SW-FR.com and myself think that the demo will be out on the 17th at the earliest. Otherwise on Jan 20th

We already have a demo thread http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=157900 so please keep all debates about the demo there.


PS: Yes, I was mistaken with that date. It will be the edition that goes on sale around middle Feb, just as the game is released
