January might be fast-disappearing but there's still a while to go before the March 6 release date of Mass Effect 3. Still, you don't have to wait seven weeks to get a taste of Mass Effect 3. BioWare has announced plans to release the Mass Effect 3 demo on February 14.
So, what will you be able to do come Valentine's Day? BioWare says the demo will give you a proper taste of the galactic war against the Reapers from multiple fronts, including the 'mind-blowing opening attack' on Earth that will kick-start the single-player campaign. You'll also get a chance to try the new co-op mode and the Kinect voice command support.
"We are excited to be able to give gamers an expansive demo that will put them right on the front lines of this all-out galactic war," said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. "The entire scale of the game is bigger than anything we've ever done. With its intense action, deep customization and raw emotional power, Mass Effect 3 will deliver a spectacular action RPG experience to fans of the series and newcomers alike."
BioWare says players who want to try the new co-op mode will be able to do so on February 17, or by qualifying for early access to the co-op portion of the demo which begins February 14. Gamers qualify for early access if they have activated their Battlefield 3 online pass. Additional opportunities to qualify will be announced in the coming weeks, so sit tight and keep your eyes peeled.
