Mass Effect 3 Demo Out Now

The demo for Mass Effect 3 went live on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC yesterday, offering a taste of both single-player and multiplayer gameplay.

The last of developer BioWare’s planned trilogy focusing on the story of Commander Shepard, Mass Effect 3 will see a full assault on the Milky Way by the all-powerful Reapers, and the efforts of the galactic community to finally put a stop to the machine race’s aeons-old cycle of genocide.

The single-player section consists of two missions. The first takes place at the beginning, during the invasion of Earth, while the second is set much further on in the game’s storyline. Unfortunately, the multiplayer portion of the demo is currently restricted to players who own a copy of Battlefield 3 and an associated online pass, though access to all will be unveiled on the 17th.

The official description of the demo reads as follows:

“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.”
