Nether Realm Studios has announced that the upcoming Mortal Kombat X will not have a demo. The developer notes that “making a demo required time that the studio didn’t have.” They note the final game is better because they didn’t take resources to make the demo.
Does that mean that perhaps a demo can come after release? Possibly, but I wouldn’t count on it coming any time soon.
They did mention that another character will be revealed by the end of this month! Many fans have rumored that the character will be Mileena, but there is currently no signs as to who exactly it will be.
Overall, I’m rather disapointed that there won’t be a demo because I’ve purhcased many games due to demo’s. That last Mortal Kombat was actually one of those games, so I’d like to try what this new game is doing before diving in. Then again, it is Mortal Kombat so you know pretty much what to expect from it and you can see the visually unique differences just by watching the trailers.
