Temporary Gold access offered to all demo downloaders

If you're keen to try out Mass Effect 3's new multiplayer modes in the upcoming demo but don't have XBL Gold membership, don't fret - BioWare has you covered.


As Microsoft has confirmed today, everyone who downloads the demo will also get with it temporary Gold membership, allowing them to get in on the multiplayer action.

"In celebration of ME3, Xbox is pleased to provide fans access to ME3 demo multiplayer for the time leading to launch," said MS. "Xbox LIVE Gold gives you exclusive benefits including multiplayer gaming, member-only deals & previews, and access to entertainment with Netflix, ESPN, Hulu Plus and more."

It'll only be temporary - the duration went unspecified - but you'd do well to make full use of your premium status while it lasts.
