Idag kommer #DICE med goda nyheter för alla som gillar deras annorlunda actionspel #Mirror's Edge. Inte nog med att de äntligen har spikat releasen för PC-versionen till den 16 januari, de har också bekräftat att ett knippe banor ska släppas till samtliga plattformar innan månadens slut. Banpaketet innehåller sju banor med sammanlagt nio olika Time Trial-tävlingar att sätta tänderna i - om du nu inte äger Playstation 3-versionen det vill säga. Då får du nämligen en extra bana när du slantar ut de $10 som paketet kommer kosta.
Leave the city behind! DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced that the highly acclaimed first-person action adventure title, Mirror?s Edge? will release downloadable content (DLC) for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and the PC in late January. DICE also confirmed today that the PC version of the game will ship to retailers in North America on January 13th and worldwide on January 16th, 2009.
Players will be challenged to achieve the fastest times possible on nine races across seven all-new and totally redesigned Time Trial maps. No guns, no cops, and no city: this is true aesthetics, agility and flow that will challenge any runner. This special DLC pack will be available for $10 USD or 800 Microsoft points. As an added bonus, all PLAYSTATION 3 Mirror?s Edge fans will be able to download an additional map for free.
?The freedom of movement and control in first person has been the most popular aspect of Mirror?s Edge so we decided to distil these down to their purest form for this map pack,? says Owen O?Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. ?We deliberately chose a more abstract aesthetic that is still within our distinctive art style and then focused on flow and gameplay to create an experience and challenge very different from the main game.?
Time Trial is a popular mode in Mirror?s Edge that challenges players to find the fastest route across various maps. 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.
