The following is from Erik Odeldahl, Design Director at DICE.
“Today, we want to share more details on what will be the closest look at Mirror’s Edge Catalyst so far. The Closed Beta for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst 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.”
He also has this to say about Social Play:
“Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is not only about the story of Faith and her fight against oppression. We’ve 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.”
So there you have it, lucky players who were chosen for the Closed Beta can start playing next weekend!
