Mirror's Edge Gets Release Date
EA have announced a street date for DICE's highly anticipated FPR (First Person Runner?) Mirror's Edge. Expect to see parkour loving Faith adorning the box art at your favourite retailer on November 11th. For the cautious of you out there, a demo will also appear on the PSN before the release date helping to whet people's death-defying appetite. Or the morbidly obsessed who want to see if the motion sickness affects are true.
Senior Producer at Dice, Owen O'Brien, describes the aspirations behind Mirror's Edge: "“We wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay.” Remember: the PS3 version will feature exclusive six-axis motion control elements.
Mirror's Edge was recently named best 360 game at Leipzig and also ran off with the Game Critics award for Best Original Game at the (somewhat underwhelming) E3. The 360 will receive the game on the same date though it's (marginally) interesting to note that the PC version won't be released until the nebulous "winter" season. Sounds a lot like 2009 to us.
