Electronic Arts wants gamers to get into parkour this fall. Well, sort of. The company today announced it will ship its first-person action title Mirror’s Edge on November 11 for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version of Mirror’s Edge will ship later in the winter.
EA also announced that a Mirror’s Edge demo will be available before the game launches, and although it did not specify a date, it will likely hit before Sept. 26. How do we draw that conclusion? Because EA announced that the demo will feature the prologue of the game and — starting Sept. 26 — players who pre-order Mirror’s Edge at selected retailers will get an exclusive code that unlocks the Time Trial mode in the demo.
If the code is coming Sept. 26, shouldn’t the demo be out by then, too? Survey says: yes!
Mirror’s Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of Faith, a modern-day heroine who traverses a vertigo-inducing cityscape while engaging in intense combat and fast-paced chases. Faith will also solve first-person puzzles.
DailyGame has already confirmed an advance appointment to get some extensive hands-on time with the game prior to its release. Stay tuned for details once we return from EA.
Time Trial mode challenges players to find the fastest route across the rooftops and through the streets. 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.
