Commander Shepard wants to be your Valentine

Ready for a hot date with Mass Effect 3?

The extensive demo will allow players to experience the all-out galactic war against an ancient alien race known as the Reapers from multiple fronts, including the mind-blowing opening attack on Earth that kicks off the single-player campaign.  Players will go deeper into the campaign and also get a taste of the franchise’s new co-operative multiplayer mode as they preview the epic story, adrenaline-pumping action and deep customization options that lie ahead when Mass Effect 3 launches on March 6, 2012. Mass Effect 3 will also be one of the first pre-launch demos to support full voice recognition functionality on Kinect™ for Xbox 360.

Unfortunately, there is a catch. The single player will be available to all on the 14th. The new co-op portion will be available on the 14th to those that redeemed the Battlefield 3 online pass. If you didn’t buy BF3 there are other ways to get early access, just visit and click away at the chances they offer. This may be a plus for those in relations with another Mass Effect fan since the co-op portion is online only — but you both probably have your own system, so problem solved. The demo offers 1 – 2 hours of content and the co-op multiplayer features two maps: Slum and Noveria. Finally, the Kinect will also support French, German and Italian languages in addition to English. So cook a nice a dinner, light some candles and butter up your system of choice. Commander Shepard is waiting.
