Crystal Dynamics has "no plans" to release a playable demo of Tomb Raider before release, the studio has revealed.

"For all those @tombraider fans asking. There are no plans to release a demo of the game pre-launch. We don't want to spoil the story," tweeted Karl Stewart, Tomb Raider's global brand manager.

"We've weaved such an [sic] personal story we don't believe spoiling it by having you wait a week or so to play on, delivers on our promise."

Tomb Raider is due to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 5.

I just get a feeling that it will try and be too much like Uncharted, though less of the tongue in cheek humour.

Why not just release the demo that already exists, and has done since last year? A lot of people really seemed to like it.

That's a shame, I was hoping for a hands-on experience (oo-err) before parting with any cash. Guess I'll just see what reviews say.
