Play Mass Effect 3 at Eurogamer Expo

And Need for Speed: The Run.

Mass Effect 3 and Need for Speed: The Run will both be playable at the Eurogamer Expo in London this September.

Earls Court hosts this year's bigger than ever event. The dates are 22nd to 25th September. The prices: £10 for a full day (11am to 7pm) or £7.50 for the afternoon (from 2pm).

BioWare's Mass Effect 3 promises a mouth-watering conclusion to the sizzling space opera action role-playing series. The game's not even due out until 2012, which means you'll go hands-on months ahead of launch.

How will the story end? Is the gameplay very different? How much better is it? Answer your friends with Renegade conviction.

Street-racer Need for Speed: The Run arrives late November, which means hands-on experience weeks before general release. How does it feel to race coast-to-coast across America in supercars while outrunning the police? This you'll find out for yourself.

EA's fancy-pants line-up also includes Battlefield 3, FIFA 12 and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Not bad, eh?

The Eurogamer Expo website can tell you all you need to know (apart from what I'll be wearing on the day).

Mass Effect 3 will support Kinect.
