The finale to Bioware's sci-fi action RPG, Mass Effect
is set to touch down on Earth, along with the Reapers, in March of 2012. Before that, eager N7's will have the chance to preview the game via a demo download. Bioware's Jessica Merizan released information on the Bioware forums
early this morning detailing all there is to know about the upcoming demo.
Firstly, the demo will release in January and include both single player and multiplayer modes. Consider the download a belated holiday gift to yourself. Anyone who purchases Battlefield 3
can activate their Online Pass (You did buy new, didn't you?) and get early access to the entirely non-controversial multiplayer portion of ME3. How early that access will be has yet to be announced.
Not buying Battlefield 3
? Bioware has you covered. Merizan also said to look out for a different promotion in late November/early December - no purchase necessary - to get early access to the co-op mode. The demo's official release date will also be announced sometime in November.Mass Effect 3
will conclude Commander Shepard's story when it releases on March 6th in North America and March 9th in Europe.
