Sega accidentally released full Yakuza 6 game as demo

Sega accidentally released full Yakuza 6 game as demo

Sega has since pulled the "demo" from the North American PlayStation Store, apologizing to fans and explaining that "some" players were able to unlock the full game that the publisher had mistakenly uploaded. The version of the demo released to the US PlayStation Network allowed players to continue playing the game and earning trophies well after it was supposed to timeout.

The demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is launching tomorrow on Tuesday and it's going to be taking up a lot of space. The Yakuza 6 demo forms a prologue for the full game. The above trailer shows a sizeable chunk of gameplay from a period in the game in which the action takes place in Jingaicho, a small village in Hiroshima Prefecture. There's a ton of cool stuff to accomplish in the demo, even if it doesn't let you go everywhere you want to go within the confines of the game.

Yakuza 6 features an emotional story that examines the strength of family relationships, and highlights an improved battle systems that seamlessly transitions between battles and between explorable areas.

We have actually called Sega for talk about exactly what takes place to gamers that have actually now surpassed the preliminary cut-off factor, considering that an initial assurance from the demonstration was that gamers would certainly maintain their development made in the trial if they bought the complete video game. Sega has also stated that your progress will transfer to the full game.

This unfortunate occurrence happens just weeks after Sega announced a delay for Yakuza 6 in the West. That's not something you need concern yourself with, because now that Kiryu has kitted himself out with a smartphone, you can use selfie mode to snap a pic.

According to Polygon, the Yakuza 6 demo was of the latter variety. Unlike the Gran Turismo demo that could be preloaded earlier, you cannot preload Yakuza 6 just yet.

KitGuru Says: This isn't the first time that a developer accidentally released a full game for free as part of a demo.

I may have grown up without video games, but I still love them all the same.
