Mass Effect 3 demo videos

Mass Effect 3 demo videos

The demo of Mass Effect 3 will officially be available to all on February 14 but the Facebook page of the game gave away exclusive codes to download it in advance. Until we are done encoding and uploading the rest of our videos (three more), here is the first part of the demo, composed only of cutscenes. You will see that the guys at Bioware have managed to give their game an even more cinematic feel and that they put the Unreal Engine to even better use than in the two previous titles.
Update: Parts 2 and 3 have been added. We also have one spare Xbox Live code to offer, it will be given to the first member to PM me today. As for the others, you can try to get the demo here (English) or here (German).
Update 2: Last video added.
Update 3: Added videos from the PC version, in 1920*1080 and 60 frames per seconds.

It's more like: Watch Mass Effect, pretend to play Mass Effect, or actually play Mass Effect.

After playing the demo, I can definitely see some visual and gunplay improvement, both are nice.

I took the regular Role Playing as before ME games but I skipped all dialogues and such so I dont spoil it to myself this early on. Just wanted to get to the gameplay and see how that turned out and it was awesome.
The feel of the guns are different, animations seems a bit smooher and less stiff (I really hope we dont get the same bullshit were Shepard's head direction is stuck in one place when we move!)

Music is awesome as well, I was worried about the composer but it seems he is doing a good job, has that Mass Effect 1 vibe than ME2.

Customization still is the same but they bumped up the quality of the hair looks, looks less plastic now and more real. Beards are the same which sucks.

Anyways, its really fun and I can't wait to play it in full when its out!

Fantastic. Special thanks for playing fem Shepard, like the game is actually supposed to be played if you got any taste. And btw her new model is hot.

*copies and pastes*

Action Mode will "emphasise action and combat and minimise story management", seeing automatic replies in conversation and a regular difficulty setting.

Story Mode is the opposite, where the campaign will "emphasise story immersion and minimise combat pressure" by allowing wider dialogue choices and dropping the difficulty setting.

Finally, RPG Mode will "explore both realms of story and combat", providing the full experience in both areas. It can be regarded as the standard Mass Effect experience.
For me, im only going to play RPG mode.lol.

Role Playing is balanced, but I dont mind chosing "Dad mode" one day to check the difference :P

I'm sure i'm not the first to say this but Wrex is cool. I had to cheat a little bit in Mass 1 and bring him back because there was no way i was continuing without him

The Demo left me absolutely Pumped out. What a fasntastic way of telling a story. I was fearing more of the same but Bioware once again has raised the bar in terms of storytelling and gameplay in an RPG. Incredible Demo. GOTY candidate for sure and probably GOTG (Generation)... I'm serious here.
