In a recent interview with G4, David Cage of Quantic Dreams revealed that Heavy Rain will indeed receive a playable demo.
“We are currently working on a demo, which is a real challenge,” he said. “Finding one scene that can convey what we are trying to achieve with Heavy Rain is something really difficult.
“If we show an action scene, some players will think that this is what Heavy Rain is all about, and it is the same thing if we show an exploration scene. The problem is that each scene of the game offers contextual game play, which is something very difficult to explain and convey in a single demo. Demos are often a double-edge thing: if you don’t release one, players may think that you have something to hide.”
While Heavy Rain is due out next year, it’s good to know that unlike other prominent titles in recent months, it will receive a demo in due time.
