Mirror's Edge DLC announced, looks bloody weird [update]


7:57 AM on 12.04.2008



As promised, Mirror's Edge DLC is on the way. The "Pure Time Trial Pack" is a selection of "stylized" time trial stages which, as you can see from the above video, look like some sort of drug experiment gone horrible wrong.

If the original Mirror's Edge gave you motion sickness, prepare to blow chunks in salty abundance this time around. There will be eight maps, and the pack is due to ship in January. Electronic Arts has promised that further details are on the way.

Yeah ... you are going to vomit. No question.

[Update: EA has issued a press release confirming a release date of January 16 and a price of 800 MS points on Xbox Live or $10 on the PSN. Hit the jump for more.]

Award-winning Action Adventure Game Delivers Fresh Content to Challenge Even the Best Runner
Guildford, UK. – Dec 4, 2008 – 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.

Mirror’s Edge was awarded “Best Xbox 360 Game” at the recent GC Developers Conference in Leipzig, Germany. It also received the “Best Action Game” of Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) by IGN and the Game Critics Award for “Best Original Game” at E3 in July. Mirror’s Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of Faith, a modern day heroine who traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. With a never-before-seen sense of movement and perspective, players are drawn into Faith’s dangerous world.

So, Battlefield 4's Naval Strike DLC looks pretty great

It's been months and months since I last touched Battlefield 4, for a number of reasons -- some of them the fault of the game, some of them not. I'm thinking the impending Naval Strike DLC, showcased rather excellently in th...more
