- EA has announced that the much-hyped free-running FPS Mirror‚‚ā¨ôs Edge will launch on November 11th on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version shipping ‚‚ā¨úlater in the winter‚‚ā¨Ě. That of course means that it might not make 2008. Sad times for PC gamers.
Nevertheless, the publisher also confirmed that a demo would be available prior to release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, allowing gamers to trial a segment of the single player mode. Starting September 26th, gamers who pre-order the game at selected retailers will also get an exclusive code that unlocks a Time Trial mode in the demo.
‚‚ā¨úMirror‚‚ā¨ôs Edge is bringing something new to the action-adventure genre this holiday by putting the player in the shoes of the hero, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels,‚‚ā¨Ě says Owen O‚‚ā¨ôBrien
, Senior Producer, DICE. ‚‚ā¨úWe wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay.‚‚ā¨Ě
As EA were quick to remind us, Mirror‚‚ā¨ôs 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. And it looks great.
