Mass Effect 3 demo lands today with new teaser trailer

The demo for Mass Effect 3 lands today along with a teaser trailer.

Today may be for chocolates, flowers, and other romantic gifts among couples, but for gamers it’s also their first shot at trying out Mass Effect 3. The demo for next month’s highly anticipated RPG from BioWare and Electronic Arts is now live on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Included in this tiny taste of war against the Reapers, players will once again take the role of Commander Shepard in two single-player missions. One is the Reaper invasion of Earth itself, while the other is what BioWare describes as a “thrilling” adventure from later in the game.

“I’m incredibly proud of what the team has accomplished with Mass Effect 3, and am very excited for fans around the world to experience something really special when they play the demo today,” said series Executive Producer Casey Hudson.

The demo is also set to give players their first hands-on time with Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer, though it won’t be available to all until February 17. Those who have purchased Battlefield 3 and activated their online pass for the game, however, will be able to jump right into the multiplayer action starting today. All of this will come complete with full voice-recognition functionality for Kinect.

In addition to the release of the demo, BioWare also announced that a brand-new trailer for the game is set to come in commercial form during this Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead” on AMC. To get fans excited for what’s to come, BioWare has unveiled a teaser version of the commercial, which can be viewed below.

Mass Effect 3 is rated M for Mature and set to release for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on March 6.
