Electronic Arts is releasing a Mirror’s Edge demo on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this week, but it’s coming to PS3 owners first — barely. The playable Mirror’s Edge demo will be available on the PlayStation Store on Oct. 30 and on Xbox Live Marketplace on Oct. 31 (Halloween).
The Mirror’s Edge demo will feature the prologue of the full game, a tutorial and a segment of the single-player story mode.
In addition, players who pre-order the game will receive an unlock code for exclusive access to the Time Trial mode. Time Trial challenges players to use their speed and best moves to find the fastest routes throughout the city. Gamers can upload their best time to the Mirror’s Edge online leaderboards for their friends to download and compete against. Like many racing games, players will be able to see their friend’s ‘ghost’ run through the level.
