Mass Effect 3 Demo Early Access

The Mass Effect Website now offers the promised early access to the playable demo for Mass Effect 3, BioWare's upcoming action/RPG sequel. Here's word:

The demo for 2012's most anticipated game is here! Experience two spectacular levels from the single-player campaign, along with intense four player co-op multiplayer matches. The multiplayer section of the Mass Effect 3 demo will feature an early access period running from February 14 to February 17.

Early multiplayer access has been granted to players who have activated their Battlefield 3 online pass. Visit this page and log in with your EA Origin account (this is the same as your BioWare Social account) to see if you currently have early access.

Gotta say, once you get past the early "tutorial" level, I like some of the changes they've made. An expanded skill system, closer to ME1 than 2, and with the added benefit of having some branching to it, rather than simply putting in a point (looks like that's mainly just for Shepherd, the NPCs have a smaller skill pook closer to ME2).

It also seems like you get XP in-mission now, instead of only at the end. Not sure if you get any based on kills, or if it's just for objective completion.

The plots seems a little iffy tho'. I mean, the Reapers land on Earth in "Act 1". The idea that you're going to go off, form an alliance of the other races and make it back to Earth before it's completely destroyed is pretty silly. Hell, Earth is likely to be almost completely gone before you can even make it to the Citadel. Sure, some survivors in a cave might still be around, but any population center will be gone. It's not like there'd be anything left to "save" - unless they make the Reapers a lot less dangerous than they've previously implied they were.
