Timed Game Trials
May 2023

The game publisher and developer EA Games has launched a 90-minute game trial for its recently-released survival horror title 'Dead Space Remake.' While timed game trials are not new to gaming in general, and are frequently found on PlayStation or Xbox consoles, this 90-minute trial will be accessible on PC via the Steam platform. This is notable, and useful, for gamers on PC in more ways than it is on console.
On console, a game trial simply acts as a way to experience a small slice of the game to see if it is enjoyable to the player. However, on PC, a game trial offers these benefits as well as the benefit of ensuring that one's system is capable of playing a game before the player purchases the game. This new timed game trial system will reduce the number of refunds significantly.
