Mass Effect 3 Demo Hits Xbox Live, MIA For PS3, Origin
According to BioWare dev Manveer Heir, the PC demo will hit Origin at 12 PST (8pm GMT).
“The ass Effect 3 demo will be available around 8am-12pm PST tomorrow in Europe on the PSN,” tweeted the Mass Effect feed – that means somewhen on Wednesday morning in the UK.
Mass Effect 3’s first mission is now playable via the ME3 demo which has hit Xbox Live.
ME3’s taster, which on Xbox 360 is a 1.76GB download, will clock in at between 1-2 hours of gameplay according to BioWare.
“The demo begins in dramatic fashion with the spectacular attack on Earth, followed by a mid-game section showcasing the groundbreaking interactive storytelling, adrenaline-pumping action, ruthless and intelligent enemies, and deep customization that make Mass Effect 3 the must-have title of 2012,” reads the description.
The Mass Effect 3 demo also includes multiplayer co-op, but that only begins on Friday 17 February – unless you’ve redeemed a Battlefield 3 Online Pass, in which case access begins today.
“Logging into the demo using the EA Origin Account linked to that Online Pass will automatically unlock the multiplayer section of the demo,” BioWare confirmed. “Note that you do not have to enter a code anywhere – if you have activated your BF3 online pass, the multiplayer section of the demo will be unlocked for you when the demo goes live.”
No demo progress will be carried over to the final game.
