Mirror’s Edge was one of those games that came and went, leaving fans wanting more and leaving those on the outside captivated by the idea. Last year, we were given the news we wanted to hear: We’re getting a sequel. Even better, the sequel is coming this year. Now, what could be more exciting than the announcement of the Closed Beta starting on April 22nd and running until the 26th?
In the Closed Beta, you will have the opportunity to play as the series’ main protagonist Faith in multiple missions, side missions and other optional content, just to get back into the swing of things. The meat of the Beta is going to be the Social Play features. There are two portions to the Social Play: the time trial Runs, and the Geotags. Both of these features can be user created to challenge friends into beating your run or even finding a tag that you left in the would of Glass. Both encouraging you to explore your world, find new routes, and enjoy the mechanics. Check out the preview below, and be sure to check out the Closed Beta when it comes out next week!
