BioWare has a Valentine's Day gift to share with its fans. Mass Effect 3, which finally hits stores on March 6, will be getting a playable demo on February 14 that includes both single-player and multiplayer content. The demo is coming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on the same day, but only those with a Battlefield 3 online pass will be able to access the multiplayer content on day one; the rest will have to wait until February 17.
As an added bonus, the Xbox 360 version of the demo will also include support for the game's Kinect controls. You can see the new feature in action right now in our CES coverage. The single player portion of the demo focuses on the attack on Earth that occurs at the start of the game while the online content is set later on, and allows players to check out the customization features.
