Mass Effect 3 Demo Inbound Sometime Before Release

If you were previously in doubt that there might be a Mass Effect 3 demo coming before the release of the game in March, then good news — you were wrong.

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.

I hope this will be a singleplayer demo and not a crappy multiplayer demo, lets face it nobody is going to be buying mass effect 3 because of the multiplayer everyone will be buying it because of the singleplayer.

@ Warp, Multiplayer is brand new in this game and they really need to show it off in a demo, i for one have been wanting a Mass Effect MP since the first gaming hoping they would do it for number 2 but now this is their chance to do that.

they know everyone is gonna buy it for the story and why show off the story in a demo when the community knows it’s gonna be EPIC!, so they’re showing off the multiplayer side

Last I heard, the demo was gonna be those two story missions they’ve been showing off as well as the multiplayer, just that BF3 owners get early access to the multiplayer.
