    The Mass Effect 3 Demo has just been given the release date of February 14th for PCs, PS3 and Xbox 360. It includes the game's opening sequence (which you can play as either a male or female Shepard) and a chance to try out the franchise's new stab at multiplayer (People who bought an online pass for Battlefield 3 can play it immediately; everyone else will have to wait 3 days).

    People who play this demo can access exclusive content in the retail release of Kingdoms of Amalur (If I'm not mistaken, just some different armor and a weapon), so if you're interested in that game at all, then you might as well give it a shot.

    Though it isn't mentioned in the article, I'm assuming that any experience earned in the demo (up to a few levels) can be carried over to the main game.

    I don't know, I think it's kind of risky to release this demo on Valentine's Day without any of the romance options that the series is known for. But the prize...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I wonder if PC gamers have to wait for MP for those who own Bf3.

    People with the Battlefield 3 online pass on any platform can play the multiplayer immediately in the demo; everyone else (on any platform) will have to wait until February 17th before they can play it.

    (Is this what you were asking? It was a bit unclear)

    Pc doesnt have a "pass" like the consoles, its just on origin, just wondering, since they like to fuck over pc gamers.

    Presumably, "Having a copy of Battlefield 3 on Origin" is the pass for PC gamers.
