Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks has confirmed there is to be no demo for the much-anticipated post-apocalyptic RPG.

When speaking to Eurogamer, Hines said there was “no way” to take a small section of the world and have something that could stand by itself.

"When you build it as one thing, there's no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we're just not going to do," Hines said.

"And it doesn't really capture the fun of a game like an Elder Scrolls or a Fallout, where you can go where you want and do what you want. So no demo, sorry."

Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic single-player RPG to be released on the 360, PS3 and PC due this autumn.

Much like Bethesda’s previous two epics, Fallout 3 will feature at least a single famous voice, Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart starred in the last game.

"We pick out key roles for people and who we'd like for those roles, and we always thought Liam [Neeson] was the perfect Father figure," said Hines.

"We have one or two other roles which we have for which we have things in mind, but the bulk of it - and we have a lot of voice-acting in the game - is done by voice-actors."
