DICE, an Electronic Arts studio, announced that the first-person action adventure title, Mirror’s Edge will release downloadable content (DLC) for the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and the PC in late January. DICE also confirmed that the PC version of the game will ship to retailers in North America on January 13th and worldwide on January 16th, 2009.
Players will be challenged to achieve the fastest times possible on nine races across seven all-new and totally redesigned Time Trial maps. No guns, no cops, and no city: this is true aesthetics, agility and flow that will challenge any runner. This special DLC pack will be available for $10 USD or 800 Microsoft points. As an added bonus, all PlayStation 3 Mirror’s Edge fans will be able to download an additional map for free.
Time Trial is a popular mode in Mirror’s Edge that challenges players to find the fastest route across various maps. Players can upload their best time to the Mirror’s Edge leaderboards for their friends to download and compete against. Players can see their friend’s ‘ghost’ run as they race their way through the course to the top of the leaderboards.
Mirror’s Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of Faith, a modern day heroine who traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. With a never-before-seen sense of movement and perspective, players are drawn into Faith’s dangerous world.
Mirror’s Edge was developed at EA Digital Illusions CE AB (DICE) in Stockholm, Sweden. For more information on Mirror’s Edge, www.mirrorsedge.com.
