For those of you hoping to get your hands on a Tomb Raider demo before the game drops on March 5, it looks like it's not going to happen.

Crystal Dynamics doesn't want any demo messing with their carefully crafted narrative.

"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 Global Brand Director Karl Stewart. "We've weaved such an personal story we don't believe spoiling it by having you wait a week or so to play on, delivers on our promise."

We guess we understand. It's not that uncommon for a major release like this not be given a demo. With the amount of press and attention this reboot is getting, it does strike us as odd all the same. Crystal Dynamics has crafted this story-driven reboot with a very specific vision and they're not going to jeopardise that.
