Anticipated first-person action game Mirror's Edge has been given an official date. EA plans to drop the game on November 11th on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
“Mirror’s Edge is bringing something new to the action-adventure genre this holiday by putting the player in the shoes of the hero, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels,” says Owen O’Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. “We wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay.”
A demo is promised too, pre release, and Mirror's Edge fans who re-order will receive a code to open the demo's "Time Trial" mode, described thusly:
Time Trial mode challenges players to find the fastest route across the rooftops and through the streets. Players can upload their best time to the Mirror’s Edge leaderboards for their friends to download and compete against. Players can see their friend’s ‘ghost’ run as they race their way through the course to the top of the leaderboards.
