If you haven’t heard by now Faith will be returning in all her free-running glory, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is due for release next month on the 24th May.
Dice have announced that the closed beta will begin on April 22nd. It will last for five days, ending on April 26th. If you have been selected for the Closed Beta and you are a Frontrunner, you will receive an email with your code on April 22nd. Others who made it into the Closed Beta will receive their code on April 23rd.
Closed Beta participants will be able to try out several of the main missions in Faith’s story, Side Missions, other optional content, and the Social Play features Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has to offer. Dice also added “As with any beta, the experience will not be the same as the final product. The Closed Beta is a chance for us to gather your valuable feedback and test the Social Play and online systems before launch. We know that as community members, you will have invaluable feedback on the game and we look forward to your comments and reaction when the Closed Beta starts.”
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is not only about the story of Faith and her fight against oppression. Dice have also designed the city of Glass as an opportunity for you to connect with friends and compare skills with other Runners. Detailed in the developer diary video above, these Social Play features are there to make your time in Glass even more entertaining and memorable.
