Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Slightly Delayed April 22, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
I first played the original Mirror’s Edge on the PS3 back in March of 2009. I found it to be a unique title with an incredible art style and mind bending gameplay. After most mainstream game critics let the title pass by without leaving much of a footnote, I never thought EA would release another Mirror’s Edge game…and then a new game was announced at E3 2013 and all was well.
However the game has not been without its delays, it was original scheduled to be published in February, but it was pushed back to a May release. Well, I’m sorry to say that EA has decided to delay the release of the game for another month.
Honestly, this news doesn’t bother me. The first Mirror’s Edge title was a fun game, but it suffered from occasional clipping issues and it could become difficult to navigate certain areas while under fire. This new title is entirely open world, allowing players to navigate an entire city without the need of boundaries. That makes it even more ambitious than the first, and probably requires a lot more testing!
If you don’t believe me when I say how ambitious this game looks, just take a look at this recent development diary about the game’s social component.
If you just can’t wait for the game’s release I’ve got some great news for you all. We will be posting a preview from the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Closed Beta later today with our candid reactions. Stay tuned to this site for that!
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is coming June 7th, 2016 to the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
