I didn't read any "don't expect this feature be actually in the final product" warning. Can you please point me to it?There are things shown, along with warnings repeated over and over again.
Never said anything about reviewers.
That's not the point, because I really do not remember any warning that everything seen in the Anthem video could be changed in the future.
I blame CDPR for many mistakes they commited and their dishonest practices with the review process, consoles etc. But it is clear that they made every effort with that demo to prevent players to expect that game. Apparently this was a harsh lesson for them, since their warnings were deliberately ignored and they face a backlash for that demo 2,5 years later.
I mentioned reviewers to strenghten my point about CDPR intentionally misleading players with promo materials since they didn't allow anyone to showcase anything without their approval.
They literally didn't do any effort to prevent backlash. In fact they are the worst offenders when it comes to building hype around the game. Slapping a work in progress text above the vid is literally the minimal effort.
All their other promos, Q&As were full of promises that simply didn't become true too.
And I still hold my stance. Expecting what is showcased in demos shouldn't be "too high of an optimistic expectation." It shouldn't be a norm. I don't buy games from companies who are known for these practices by principle. And I won't let CDPR slip either since they tricked me into believing that they are trustworthy.
