First, I apologize if any Valentine day plans are delayed, cancelled or relationship growth stunted due to the Mass Effect 3 demo release date. You can always use the old “It’s not you it’s ME3” line and hope for the best.
The demo will be available on PC, Xbox, PS3 beginning February 14, 2012. You will be playing through the opening level “Earth” which is under attack by those nasty Reapers. This version of the demo will also introduce the Mass Effect 3 co-op multiplayer mode and for the Xbox 360 players out there – Kinect functionality. Fans will be able to access tons of customization options and get enough of a peek at the story that you will be inclined to play it over and over to catch all the nuances.
Kinect integration is a big deal for BioWare and our efforts on finding ways to expand how gamers interact with the action and story of our games . I am continually amazed at how much fun it is to play ME3 barking orders at the screen and watching Shepard and team react. Mass Effect 3 is one of the biggest mature titles coming to Kinect which is a relief for those of us who aren’t coordinated enough to dance to the oldies or exercise with Jillian. Not long ago we dropped the Kinect demo on some gamers and got some of their reaction on tape and by the looks of things they were having fun too.
So cancel those dinner reservations and get online with 4 friends (romantic interests or otherwise) and play the demo till your hearts content!
