Sacred 2 Introduces “Try Before You Buy” System

Sacred2TryBeforeYouBuy.jpg DRM for PC games is only getting more and more strict these days, but for Sacred 2: Fallen Angel CDV and Ascaron are making things a bit more friendly with a built-in “Try Before You Buy” system. This new feature will enable consumers who purchased the full version of the game to share it with their friends and family. Shared copies of the game will provide full access to the game’s single-player and multiplayer features for a period of one day. At the end of that day, the user of the shared copy will then be given the option to uninstall the game from their system or buy and download the full game for themselves. Pretty neat idea.

“We feel that consumers should have a right to choose, and this innovative system offers the perfect purchasing option for gamers,” said Heiko tom Felde, Managing Director of ASCARON. “It’s a great system for family and friends, allowing everyone the opportunity to try out the game and play together, then making a purchase decision.”

“This innovative digital rights management solution raises the bar on how consumers can sample games before they buy them,” added Mario Kroll, Director of Marketing and PR for cdv Software Entertainment USA. “Rather than showcasing only a limited character or content selection, as most traditional demos do, gamers can share and enjoy the full game experience, trying out the features that most appeal to them, and getting a true sense of the full game.”
