It seems like every game is getting a beta this year. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, which was announced at this past E3 has just released a new story trailer timed with an announcement for a closed beta. The in-engine trailer gives excited players (myself being one of them) a quick look into Faith’s motivations and why she’s fighting.
The reboot is shaping up to be a huge overhaul. Mechanically it’s likely to feel similar to the original Mirror’s Edge, but this time around character development and setting seem to be at the forefront of the experience. Context with content is always important.
As for the beta, you can sign up here but you’ll need an EA account to do so. No word yet on when the beta will happen, but with the release date quickly approaching, it can’t be too far off.
