Mass Effect 3 Demo Inbound Sometime Before Release
That’s according to a tweet from the official BioWare Twitter feed, anyway. In response to a question from another user, the update reads: “Yes! We’re absolutely doing a demo prior to launch. More info soon!”
That’s good news, although I’m slightly dubious about the idea of the demo because I have a feeling it’ll be content already seen by players at the 2011 San Diego International Comic-Con and at other preview events: namely, some early “Reavers on Earth!” levels featuring Shepard, Anderson and various forms of husks (and some human children). It was an interesting section of the game, but underwhelming in terms of demo possibilities, mostly because it was all shooting and taking cover.
Maybe that won’t be the case, though, and the demo will give us a little more in the way of some RPG elements and not just running and/or gunning. Here’s hoping, anyway.
We’ll keep our ears to the ground as to when the ME3 demo might turn up and how you can get a hold of it.
