A few days ago, Design Director Erik Odeldahl was talking at EGX Rezzed and when asked about the beta and social play components of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, he couldn’t say a word.
Well, now we know everything thanks to this new article!
First, the beta will happen from April 22nd to April 26th.
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.
At the same time, there is a new developper’s diary video entirely dedicated to social play, the multiplayer component we’ve been wondering about for a long time.
I won’t describre everything that’s said in the video because you will watch it (see below) but it all seems pretty cool and we have a glimpse of what the MAG Rope gameplay looks like (just a couple of seconds but still).
