Hello everyone,

I have some good news today. The PC demo is finally here, and will be made available first, exclusively at GameSpy tomorrow at 5:30pm, PST.

As an added bonus, GameSpy will be hosting a special live chat event with the producer for Tomb Raider: Legend, Matthew Guzenda! This chat event is going to begin at 4:30pm PST, so you definitely don’t want to be late!

The live chat event will take place at: http://www.gamespyarcade.com/events/chats/tombr_legend_03312006.shtml

In order to participate in the live chat event, you will need to have GameSpy Arcade installed, and create an account.

GameSpy Arcade is available for download at: http://www.gamespyarcade.com/download

The chat event will take place in GameSpy’s LiveWire lobby, which is accessible by clicking the LiveWire icon under the "My Games" tab on the left side of Arcade.

Hope you all like the good news!

*Does some mental math* So it'll be available for download at 8:30 pm on the Atlantic coast? I'm not sure of the time differences, so please correct me if I'm wrong:)

Good news indeed. I don't have a GameSpy account, but I would consider getting one to get the demo. What about this GameSpy Arcade? Is it a requirement to get the demo? I don't see why I would need to install another piece of software on my machine when I'm just interested in getting the demo. I've seen enough interviews for now. Better yet, can you tell us when the demo will be available on the Tomb Raider site? Thanks.

DKSM
30th Mar 2006, 22:19
I asked Matt that question as I was wondering too.

He said the demo is a free download for anyone. GameSpy Arcade is only necessary for the chat event.

YAAAAY! Thanks for the news Matt.

5:30PST = 8:30EST = 2:30GMT. We get the PC demo first. :p :p :D

On http://www.tombraiderlegenddemo.com/ it says "demo released at 3 PM on april first" . Is this my calculated GMT time or it`s universal?

Please check the site out and post here if your demo release date doesn`t match with mine!!

I've been wondering that myself. I posted earlier with questions, and DKSM mentioned that registering and GameSpy Arcade are required for the chat, but noone has actually said you can get the demo without registering with GameSpy. I guess we'll find out tonight.

I just checked, and the text is the same for me, 3 PM April first.

If I can't get the demo from GameSpy without registering, maybe I'll wait a day and check the demo website.

WraithStar
31st Mar 2006, 18:23
It's not out until 8:30 tonight where I am, and I won't be home for most of tonight, so I'll probably download it when I get back and play it tomorrow morning. Now that I know I'll have it before the game comes out, I'm not freaking out over whether I have it right this instant or within a day or two.

...you will need to have GameSpy Arcade installed, and create an account.

Two words: NO WAY

Not even for Tomb Raider. I'll just wait for the real download sites to pop up all over 5 minutes later.

L Croft
31st Mar 2006, 19:11
you don't have to have that for the demo, just for the chat so don't worry :) .

lllll
31st Mar 2006, 19:16
You can't download from Gamespy without having a payed for account, that is a fact.

I think they will release the FREE demo on their official site too....at least if they care for the TR fans more than the Gamespy members.....

It all is about money and promotion again unfortunately, screw the TR fans it seems :thumbsup:

Shehi
31st Mar 2006, 19:41
MattD at Eidos today confirmed that fan sites will be able to host the demo within 2 - 3 hours after it is released thru GameSpy. We won't be able to host it sooner as it is GameSpy exclusive. As soon as we have clearance, you will also be able to download it on TRComm at following addresses:

http://www.trcomm.net/downloads_demopatch.php

Who can guess what time the server goes down through too much traffic.. :eek:

It was a frustrating time with Half Life 2, and that was just to install the game.

I hope there are backups, but I keep thinking i'm going to see a notice saying come back later.. :(

Hell yes, we've seen so many patches for TR that it is already a custom for webmaster to have patches page ready, for any case :D That page contains both demos and patches of Tomb Raider games, so I named it that way. Easy to remember, and easy to classify for me, as a download page.

MattD
31st Mar 2006, 21:14
You don't need a paid account to download from GameSpy. The paid account only lets you bypass the lines, which are done on a first come first served basis for their free servers.

Membership to game spy is free. You only need to pay if you want the extra's and to disable all the ad's. Arcade is only needed for the Live Chat session. For the download, anyone using fileplanet membership can also sign in.

Tomorrow = today ? I'ma a little confused.. You said tomorrow yesterday and that tomorrow is today but it isn't 1 april as it says at www.tombraiderlegenddemo.com ( or something like that ) So.. It will be out when ? Today or April 1 ? :)

Sheesh...people are talking like broken records about this. :p

ANYONE can download the demo of Gamespy.com. If you're a member it'll be QUICKER to get it (no waiting in line).

Other websites will be able to host the demo TWO HOURS after it appears on Gamespy.com.

The demo will available at http://www.tombraiderlegenddemo.com TOMORROW, APRIL 1.

2. Wait another hour for one of the fan sites to have it for download

I totally disagree with this assessment. Look at my review of TR;AOD on GameSpot (GumbyTheBorg), I can tell you all about bad controls. The controls on the PC this time around are totally usable. The only sticking point is when Lara is pulling or pushing objects, its a bit confusing.

The controlls are very strange.. even the moves :( she runs so chaotic.. and her special moves just don't feel right.. i'm disapointet especially of her special dive move.. so unatural. The camera is horrible.. sometimes u just can look right at what is around you.. it was better when you pressed 0 in the other tr games and you could clearly look around you.. something just doesn't feel right. everything gives me the impresion of console game and that everything is built up for you to do it in a rush.The graphics are really good.A litlle bit disapointed :( maybe it's because it's something totally different and i'm not used to it yet

GumbyTheBorg

The controls are light years ahead of AOD IMO. The demo worked like a charm with my logitech dual analog gamepad. Does take a bit getting used to pushing and pulling objects, but it's a piece of cake once I got the hang of it.

I just played through some of the demo and it's the most beautiful game I've ever played. Even beats Ninja Gaiden. The controls are easy to get used to and Lara seems soooooooo much improved. Thank you Eidos! I'm not sure to get the PC or Xbox version. Might end up getting both!

I'd love to get a figure(approximate) on how many downloads the demo has generated. Lots of busy sites.:)

Maybe an all-time high?

Congratz to Eidos/CD and Toby Gard.

400 downloads... 175 gigas :)

So we switch to member-only mode now. Hope people will drop a line or two and share their opinion about demo after download :)

The controls are light years ahead of AOD IMO. The demo worked like a charm with my logitech dual analog gamepad. Does take a bit getting used to pushing and pulling objects, but it's a piece of cake once I got the hang of it.

Completely and totally agree.

??? Are you saying you tried to download this demo 200 times over again? I say this because the demo is 500 Mb and you can fit two of those in 1 gigabyte, so at 100 gigabyte of bandwidth cost, that's 200 attempts.

The definition of insanity btw is trying the same thing over and over again expecting different results...

XD I died in the PS2 demo, in a silly way, really: the big rolling ball rolled and fell by the waterfall, and I wanted to make a beautiful swan dive after that... My swan dive was really beautifull, but I fell in the lake, touched the ball (that didn't move anymore, it was underwater!) and... I don't know how... but Lara died by touching it. Maybe she was allergic... ^^

I just got the demo from fileshack and it is 475 megabytes. In other places, it looks like it is 509 megabytes. Why is one smaller?

DIfference between packages is that larger one has DirectX inside.

You can still download it from TRComm.Net, but we have limited the download to members now, so you should register now - as we have served 440 downloads which cost us 220 gigas of server traffic within few hours. I hope you understand this. Our server supports download accelerators like GetRight, so I am pretty sure you should not have any problems with downloading - both speed and resuming features are quite good. But please, while registering, don't use one-time only usernames as if you are coming solely for download, as it is really hurting - I was deleting such accounts today, in loss and frustration. Just unclick "Admin can contact me" boxes on registration, if you don't wish to receive any emails from administration, including important Tomb Raider news and announcements. Thanks again for your support and understanding! :D

I always download from www.gamershell.com. Pick a download site in either England or Netherlands. I always get good download speeds.

Yup thats what happened to me three times now. Eidos' page - tells you to wait for your place to start downloading - then after you've waited a while comes up with a link to click on to start your Legend demo - you click and it takes you to a download for Championship manager???? What's that about??

I'm downloading now from LCO - http://www.laracroftonline.com/cgi-bin/goodies/read.asp?newsID=20
