The Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Closed Beta release date has been revealed as April 22nd, giving players their first good look at the upcoming reimagining of the fan favorite series. The Beta will continue for five days, coming to a close on April 26th. As this is a Closed Beta, only those who have been pre-selected will have access. If you were chosen then you will receive an email on the 22nd with your download code, which you can enter into whatever system you set as your preference.
“It’s an exhilarating feeling, being this close to the launch of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst,” reads the announcement from EA and DICE. “The team here at DICE has made a true leap of faith, and with the upcoming Closed Beta* we intend to make the landing as smooth as possible.”
As far as what players will get to experience in the beta period, “Closed Beta participants will be able to try out several of the main missions in Faith’s story, Side Missions, other optional content, and the Social Play features Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has to offer. As with any beta, the experience will not be the same as the final product. The Closed Beta is a chance for us to gather your valuable feedback and test the Social Play and online systems before launch. We know that as community members, you will have invaluable feedback on the game and we look forward to your comments and reaction when the Closed Beta starts.”
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24th.
