PlayStation 3 owners are about to get a taste of Mass Effect 2. The demo is live on the PlayStation Network for North American audiences and is scheduled to launch on Wednesday, December 22 in Europe.
The demo will put players in the role of Commander Shepard and will feature three memorable missions from the epic RPG. According to publisher Electronic Arts, “This includes the game’s shocking and thrilling opening sequence, the investigation of a planet whose inhabitants have disappeared and a mission to help recruit one of the most memorable characters in the franchise, Mordin Solus, to your squad.”
Mass Effect 2 for the PlayStation 3 will ship to stores on January 18, 2011 in North America and on January 21, 2011 in Europe. The fashionably late PlayStation 3 version will come with bonus DLC missions, including the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC pack. It will also include Mass Effect Genesis, an interactive comic from Dark Horse Comics and BioWare, which will help new players get up to speed with the current state of the galaxy in the Mass Effect universe.
