Written by Barry Villatoro

With the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Demo set to release on January 17th and the Mass Effect 3 demo coming not too far behind it, 38 Studios and Bioware have teamed up. Announced today, that playing both demos will unlock special items you will obtain nowhere else, except from playing these demos. These items will also be influenced by the demo they are unlocked from. Example, By playing the Mass Effect 3 demo, you’ll unlock Omni-Blade like daggers for KoA:R

By playing the KoA:R demo you’ll unlock items in for Mass Effect 3 and vice versa.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver this massive one-two punch with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Mass Effect 3. We wanted to provide fans of the Mass Effect franchise with a unique set of rewards for diving into the expansive universe of Reckoning,” said Curt Schilling, Chairman and Founder of 38 Studios.

“We are excited to be collaborating with 38 Studios to bring pieces inspired by the Mass Effect universe into the world of Reckoning and to have items designed by Todd McFarlane in Mass Effect 3,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager of EA’s BioWare Label and Co-Founder of BioWare. “This is an awesome way to reward our fans with unique content that not only looks cool, but also delivers some great in-game benefits.”

Playing the KoA:R demo will unlock these items for use in the retail version of Mass Effect 3 when it releases March 6th.

  • Reckoner Knight Armor: This armor will maximize damage done in close-quarters combat while a beefed–up power cell feeds energy into weapon systems to increase projectile velocity.
  • The Chakram Launcher: This weapon uses a fabricator to manufacture lightweight, explosive ammunition discs. This weapon is earned after completing the Reckoning demo and watching the trailer at the end.

Playing the Mass Effect 3 demo will unlock the following items in KoA:R when it releases February 7th.

  • N7 Armor: Players can unlock special armor inspired by Commander Shepard’s iconic N7 battle armor including Helm, Cuirass, Gauntlets, Chausses and Greaves.
  • Onmiblade Daggers:A holographic blade stemming from Commander Shepard’s Omni-Tool, the Omni-blade allows players to stab enemies in close combat. Once players install and play the Mass Effect 3 demo, they will unlock the daggers.

Also revealed is that the KoA:R demo will take you through the tutorial and beyond, totaling in about 45 minutes of gameplay.

In addition to the Mass Effect items above, players who play the Reckoning demo will also unlock:

  • Twist of Fate Card: This card boosts the player’s ice resistance and is immediately unlocked when he or she activates the Reckoning demo using his or her Origin account.
