Demo download problems info

Hi everyone

It hasn't escaped our notice that one or two of you are having problems downloading the Steam demo!

We're looking into it and hopefully the situation should be resolved soon.

In the meantime, rest assured we're going to be offering it through other platforms soon, so if you're having problems connecting through Steam there will be alternatives.

Apologies from the dev team for a situation beyond our control, but we hope you enjoy the demo when you do get to play it!

PR Mike

a third party download link that would extract to the proper directory would work.

i first tried downloading this over 12 hours ago, and i'm still being told the servers are too busy :/

I found a solution yesterday for this problem. Just go to settings in Steam and opt in for the Steam Beta and now it will work to download the demo.

Tried it on ps3 which made me instantly buy it on pc, but now I want to try the pc demo!!!!
I found the ps3 version to be rather addictive, but I hate using controllers lol

I like how the SEV2 PR said that "one or two of you are having problems downloading the Steam demo". That has to be the understatement of the year award right there
That tickled me, as I appreciate the good humour

Aren't you, developers, taking too long to upload it somewhere else due to the fact of THOUSANDS of people like me not being able to download it?
I've been trying to download it since it came out yesterday.

Providing alternate download would take maybe 5 minutes ?
