Bioware has just sent word that their upcoming Sci-fi Third-person Action Shooter Mass Effect 3, now has a demo available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

The PC demo is currently on Origin, and sadly we can't host it locally, however, if past experiences hold true, Origin's servers are particularly fast when it comes to downloading.
The demo for 2012's most anticipated game is here! Experience two spectacular levels from the single-player campaign, along with intense four player co-op multiplayer matches. The multiplayer section of the Mass Effect 3 demo will feature an early access period running from February 14 to February 17.

Early multiplayer access has been granted to players who have activated their Battlefield 3 online pass. Visit this page and log in with your EA Origin account (this is the same as your BioWare Social account) to see if you currently have early access.
So it's as simple as heading over to the demo page and clicking the PC section if you want to give the demo a try, or on either the Xbox Live Marketplace or the PlayStation Network.

Check out the latest CGI teaser trailer below titled "Take Earth Back" (click here for HD), or head over to our game page for the latest in screenshots, videos and info.

Same here, I avoided all the Skyrim hype and I think my experience was much better for it.

I don't get why there isn't a bundled version of Mass Effect 2, or at least why the DLC isn't easier to get.

I bought Mass Effect 2 on Steam, I couldn't buy the DLC through Steam because I needed to buy it with Bioware points. Now Mass Effect 3 is on Origin, Mass Effect 2 is also available on Origin, but I still can only get DLC from the Bioware store, why?

Played the demo once. Enjoyed the new features for the soldier. Will be trying some of the other classes to see how they play out. Also went with "role-playing" as my way of playing the game rather then "story" or "combat" but will try them.

Hmm, just had a quick go of the demo, and now I remember why I hated Mass Effect combat. Just feels so clunky and slow. Plus it's awkward holding shift to pause and change ammo or use items. Multiplayer is just co-op, thought it was actually versus.

I actually don't know. I just heard multiplayer and thought sweet, something like 40k. Ah well, that kind of co-op ain't my kind of style anyway, was just waves.

Played a bit of the multiplayer on xbox live over the weekend, and after that I'm definitely getting it on PC. I liked the co-op, but fuck it was frustrating trying to play it on a controller, the whole time I was just wishing I had a mouse to aim with.
