Sign-ups begin for Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Closed Beta


It's amazing to think that Mirror's Edge came out almost nine years ago. It's even more incredible to think that the beta for its sequel - MIrror's Edge: Catalyst - has only just become available for sign-ups.

PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC owners can now put their name down for a place on the Mirror's Edge: Catalyst closed beta, which will become available at some time between now and when the game is supposed to be released in May.

Signing up in no way guarantees a place in the beta, but not signing up guarantees you don't stand a chance. Of course, the beta will run through the Origin service on PC, just for those people who want a little bit of extra excitement tied into this announcement.

Mirror's Edge was a quiet hit when it was first released back in 2007. Lots of people loved it, at least when it was £3 in the bargain bin six months after release. But that cult following has turned into a lot of interest in this prequel/reboot/sequel.

In Mirror's Edge: Catalyst we'll get to learn Faith's origin story, but personally all I want to know is how she manages to stay on those high buildings without feeling queasy. She'll take on a bunch of corporations who've taken control of her city, using nothing but really, really fast running and an occasional bit of violence.
