The upcoming closed beta for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will begin on April 22, DICE have announced.
Design Director Erik Odeldahl wrote the following in a blog post on the game’s official website:
“It’s an exhilarating feeling, being this close to the launch of Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst. 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.”
The beta will last for five days, ending on April 26, and will include “several” main missions, side missions and “other optional content.”
Odeldahl notes that the closed beta is not representative of the final product and is intended to gather player feedback on the first-person action game, in addition to testing its Social Play and online systems.
Those who are lucky enough to be selected to participate in the beta and signed up to be a Frontrunner should expect their code to arrive via email on April 22, while others will get theirs the day after on April 23.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is set to release on May 24, 2016 in North America and May 26, 2016 in Europe for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
