CHVRCHES wrote a new song for Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is just under a month away, and I'm starting to get excited. I haven't played it yet (thought Steven has), but even if it ends up disappointing in any way, I'll be happy if it has great music like the first game....   read
