While the Closed Beta for Mirror's Edge Catalyst was announced a few days ago, an official release date for the full retail version of the game was announced today. Electronic Arts and DICE will release Mirror's Edge Catalyst on June 7th (June 9th in Europe). DICE believes that the two extra weeks will ensure the game will offer the best playing experience possible. This allows time to http://www.lunapic.com/editor/?action=mirror address player feedback from the Closed Beta, as well. The focus on the beta and the full game will be the Social Play aspect. Things such as taking on Dashes designed by DICE, creating your own Time Trials, climbing the Leaderboards, and connecting with your Runner friends are just some of the aspects of the Social Play integration.
"To support the Social Play features, we are using a brand new online technology. We also want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta. That is why we will give ourselves a bit more time to perfect the game, with a new release date for Mirror's Edge Catalyst of June 7th (NA) and June 9th (EU). We're confident that these extra two weeks will make sure the game is as amazing as possible for you the players."
All of this should give fans that are looking forward to the game an excellent opportunity to experience this fascinating new setup. The City of Glass will be open for Closed Beta participants starting April 22nd. As the releases draws nearer, more updates should arise and we will keep you posted.
