Civilization VI Gets A Free Demo On Steam

Civilization VI Gets A Free Demo On Steam

If you've been waiting for a chance to play Civilization VI but don't feel like forking out 50 quid, you're in luck! Today, 2K and Firaxis Games announced that a free playable demo of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is available on Steam.

On the demo, players will be able to play as Qin Shi Huang-led China for up to 60 turns, allowing you to get a feel for the game without ruining all your life and relationships. The demo will also include the tutorial from the full game, for those completely new to the Civilization series.

Alongside the release of the demo, 2K is having a publisher sale on Steam also starting today, -- that's a good chance to grab Civ VI, it's DLC's, or any other 2K games if you fancy.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is out now on the PC.

I know why demos fell the way of the Dodo and its because when they released a demo of a shitty game no one bought it so demos didnt mean you got more sales.

Nice to see some companies have confidence in their products though.

I think demos fell out of favour because companies could no longer justify their development time. When your games are still under active development until launch date and day one patches are rule rather than exception, demos stop happening as often.

That's why Civ VI and Doom released their demos after the final game was launched; they could dedicate resources towards a marketing ploy to attract more players.
