Demo? Where is it...
I imagine I'm not the only one who tries on shoes before buying them. Is there going to be a demo for this game, or is it an anticipated blind purchase forever.

How would you make a demo for a multiplayer only game? All you would need to do to keep playing is to redownload/delete the cache often.

It's a multiplayer game.

MULTIPLAYER. As in, it's only played with other people. There isn't any single player bits. Just watch some videos of its gameplay on youtube.

What? Since when does multiplayer only mean that you cannot have a demo? Many multiplayer games here on Steam have free weekends to try things out, there's one on right now for Payday: The Heist.

I'm also pretty sure I spent 30 minutes playing a demo of Ravaged the other night (meh) which has just been released and is also a multiplayer only game. They only game you one map that you could run around in. They can make demos for multiplayer games, theres a number of ways to make it work.

I would also like to see a demo or free weekend of Chivalry, it looks good and sounds interesting but the comments on some of the forums have been mixed, a trial would certainly help to push me towards purchasing this if its good but no trial means that I won't buy now and may pick it up if it goes on sale sometime in the future. Demos are good, they help to sell your product.

Quake 3 demo, medal of honor demo, unreal tournament demo. You know, back in the old days when PC games had demos. Multiplayer demos were common and had limited content for you to play.

They could make it so players could play against bots and do the tutorial for a demo.

A free weekend (though the game itself shouldn't go on sale) would be quite a good idea, in my opinion, as I'm currently on the fence about buying this. It's a reasonable price at the moment and I'd really like to try it out, but I've spent a fair bit (for me anyway) on games recently as it is, so a free weekend/demo of some sort would be very much appreciated.

There are plenty of MP games that have demos. Most will just limit it by time. And since this game has bots they could atleast let people try that.

Oh I don't know, the same exact way you would make any other demo comes to mind.

Just buy it already its only 25 fricking bucks, or do like I did and buy a 4-pack with complete strangers and get it for 18.75$

$25 dollars is a lot for a game on steam. Especially one with such mixed reactions.

yep.
Its a new trend, lack of demos, new game every few months as old one is so crapy that no one would buy it after the demo.
videos looks nice, but its probably just another bad game.

omfg ... these kids these days really think multiplayer games cant have a demo ? ... ♥♥♥♥ing big gamedevelopers must be so happy that their sheeps now totally follow blind :D

back in the days u get one map some weapons and coudl try out the gameplay .. thats all a demo should show u :) ... but the big companys know theri games suckz but want to sell them so they cant show u the product caus u wont buy them when u know how bad the games are ... :)

i think a chivalry demo woudl be very cool caus this game is soooo nice if someone isnt shure if this game is good or bad ... a demo would help a lot ( to get more player into this awesome game)

Both Chivalry and WOTR need a demo very VERY badly. It would help end the majority of the 'dont buy game X because it sucks' posts on the game forums.

You can only play some classes, and only in offline mode against bots.
DONE!
