Bioware's smash hit Mass Effect 2 gets the demo treatment today.
The demo will provide players who are unfamiliar with Mass Effect 1 or the Mass Effect universe with a recounting of the tale from the Illusive Man (Martin Sheen). The story helps provide gamers new to the series with a strong foundation to make an intelligent decision on purchasing the game (BUY IT).
Those that have played the original Mass Effect are allowed to import any previous characters into the demo. This includes any decisions, money, skills, etc just like you would with the full retail purchase. Oh yes! Those characters you made for the demo? You can import those characters into the full retail game and pick up right where you left off in the game.
The demo gives you about 90 minutes of gameplay, according to Bioware.
Oh yes, don't forget there is some new DLC titled The Overlord available tomorrow for 560 MSP and 2 achievements.
