Mirror’s Edge, the first-person parkour game developed by DICE in which you help Faith discover why her sister was framed for murder, is back in the news today, but this time it is not about the development of the sequel. The game itself has been available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC since November of 2008; yet only recently has it been added to the online marketplaces of Steam, Xbox Live and Origin, with no news about the PSN. However, on a recent post written by Joystiq early today, the PlayStation Blogcast announced to their listeners that Mirrors Edge would finally be coming to the PSN on September 25th. No details were given on pricing or download size, but when comparing to Xbox Live, Steam and Origin it only seems fitting that the download would cost anywhere from 15$ to $20.
Mirror’s Edge is a game that helped revolutionize the first person view point for players by allowing them to scale buildings, tumble while dodging firing and allowed gamers to engage in hand to hand combat that felt smooth and real. It was a new and fresh experience for many players and really helped to immerse the player into a calculative, fast-paced gameplay. There are many other games out there that have drawn on this experience and countless first-person cross platforming games, but none have quite matched the experience that Mirror’s Edge has to offer.
So if you have yet to play Mirrors Edge, have PSN and can afford the $15 to $20 price tag then this game is a must download for the month of September; especially with rumors floating around about the potential development of a Mirror’s Edge 2 by DICE and EA.
