Mass Effect 3 demo out now on Xbox Live Marketplace, demo will be up for other platforms soon |

The demo will be available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for those who pre-ordered BioWare’s Mass Effect 3, but to gain access, you will need to have a purchased a Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition or Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe Edition Console. If you have the latter, the demo will be playable on your Xbox 360 and on your PC. It will be available “early 2013” for the Xbox 360 and will be “later this year” for the PC, according to the developer.

New demo is out, head to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Preview/Mass-Effect-3/Demos to download it on your Xbox 360 or PC. The demo is 1.5GB and will be up for other platforms soon, no date for the PS3 demo yet.

BioWare has released a Mass Effect 3 demo for the Xbox 360 to give fans a taste of the final game before the official November 6 release. The demo allows players to play through the first two missions of the game. The demo is available through the Xbox Live Marketplace, and will be later available for other platforms.

Today is either Singles Appreciation Day/Valentines Day, Twisted Metal Day, or the Mass Effect 3 Demo Day! That’s correct, the single-player demo for Mass Effect 3 is now available on Xbox Live. The demo will be available on PS3 and PC in a few hours, so be patient, it’ll only be a few more hours until we get to test that delicious tech blade and many more!

The Mass Effect 3 trial, as promised by Bioware, will feature two single-player missions followed by a taste of multiplayer coop, which will be available to all users on February 17. People who have early multiplayer access (through Battlefield 3, for example) may play it now alongside the single player. Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer is co-op, and the demo will feature two maps: Slum and Noveria.

I’ve been attempting to download the demo on my Xbox 360, but every time I start it, I get a “Can’t download this” problem. Millions other people are probably attempting to download the same stuff, so I’ll try again in a few hours.

The single player demo is estimated to take 1-2 hours to complete.

Mass Effect 3 will be released on March 9 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
