This is a question I’ve seen asked around quite a bit lately. I’ve seen it both on the official Fallen Earth forums, and in the search engine phrases that people have used to find their way to this blog.
The quick answer to the question is: No. There is currently no free trial period for Fallen Earth.
The slightly longer answer is that this is to be expected. I’m not even sure that I need one finger to count the number of games that have given a free trial period at the launch of their brand new game. While that’s certainly the case with the AAA MMORPGs that have been released, there maybe a few free to play or indie games that have offered a trial.
As for when a trial period will be available for Fallen Earth?
No idea. Since Fallen Earth is still in its first month of release, and is doing well with the sales showing that people are willing to buy it without a trial, it could be a while before a free trial period is offered. It certainly won’t be this month, and my guess is that a trial will only be offered once sales slow down and Fallen Earth, LLC want to kick start sales again. Give it at least six months.
However, if the game continues it’s success at sales, you could be waiting a lot longer for a free trial.
It’s up to you.
