BioWare has Mass Effect 3 "demo plans"

Single-player or multiplayer?

BioWare has plans to release a demo for Mass Effect 3, a new tweet by series overseer Casey Hudson has revealed.

He told his followers to, "Stay tuned for news on demo plans in a few months."

What will be in the demo we don't know. Will it be single-player or will it be multiplayer, given that Mass Effect 3 is strongly rumoured to have four-player co-op?

The first Mass Effect demo released publicly was for Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3 in December 2010. RPGs are hard to cut into playable chunks that are indicative of the overall game experience.

Nevertheless, BioWare also chose to demo traditional fantasy RPG Dragon Age II earlier this year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Mass Effect 3 was delayed from autumn 2011 to Q1 2012. Perhaps a demo could arrive in time for Christmas.

But you won't have to wait until then; you'll be able to play Mass Effect 3 at the Eurogamer Expo 2011 in London in September. Get your Eurogamer Expo 2011 ticket now.
