Kingdoms of Amalur demo launches today with Mass Effect 3 extras

The Kingdoms of Amalur demo is out today, which means it's your chance to unlock extra items for Mass Effect 3. Today’s cross promotion grants Todd McFarlane-Designed Mass Effect 3 items with today’s Amular demo, with the upcoming ME3 demo unlocking extras for Amalur.

Of course, all those perks will enhance the gameplay experience of future-you, but there's no reason that jackass should have all the fun. The demo also gives right-now-you the opportunity to play Kingdoms of Amalur's initial stages. That'll let you preview the intro, get your head around the tutorial bits, and explore the game's opening region for 45 minutes before being tapped on the shoulder and politely offered the chance to buy the proper game when it releases on Feb 7. Check our previews for impressions of the game's further content.

    The demo is amazing. Totally pre-ordering this, along with my huge list of games I want! Also note of advice to anyone playing the demo: DON'T kill all the villagers and the guards, 'cos then the world seems too empty without them. Trust me, I found out from experience...

    The demo wasn't too bad, except for the crash on the first pass, and the holes in the ground on the second pass. If the glitches are truely fixed by release day I'll be picking it up.

    Very impressed with the Amalur demo. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to play the whole thing, but a big enough chunk of it. Already put my pre order in. As folks have said before, its the game Fable should have been. Im glad that the demo is giving the incentive of Amalur and ME3 equipment, even though I cant get on with ME.

    I'd do anything for free ME DLC, but the screenshots for Amalur actually look quite purdy too, so the demo should be worth a look.

    can't wait for these games to come out, especially ME3. So many great games are out lately!

    Had a blast with the demo, ah man need to save up and possibly eat ramen for the next few weeks to grab this one.

    Hey GR, big questio here, does the demo promo items with mass effect 3 work with the Steam PC demo? with all that stuff about ME3 being origin exclusive

    *today's Amalur demo. I shall enjoy the demo once it is downloaded, but I have to ask the question... When is the goddamn ME3 demo coming out? >:O

    ... really fun demo. This game just went from off my radar to probably a day one purchase.

    I can't find it on Xbox Live.
