Mirror's Edge Complete, Goes Gold
When we first heard about the game earlier this year, we were immediately intrigued. The original concept is what caught our eye, and now, after sampling it at E3 and checking out the demo last week, we're more psyched then ever. So it was music to our ears to hear that EA has announced that Mirror's Edge is complete.
According to GameSpot, EA DICE has confirmed the highly anticipated title is done and now has achieved gold status. This means the game is on track to hit its scheduled release date of November 13 in North America and November 14 in Europe, so mark the day on your calendars. We're certain you've probably already dropped some hard-earned cash on either Resistance 2 or Gears of War 2 this week (or both), but you don't want to miss out on Mirror's Edge, either. Just say, "I'm sorry, Mr. Wallet, but I promise I'll refill you...somehow!" EA is pushing the hell out of this one, too, so it'll be tough to ignore: they're releasing a comic book that goes along with the game's storyline, there's a free Time Trail mode if you place your pre-order, and if you're really gung-ho, you can pick up the very complete $130 Limited Edition package. If you needed a reminder, this is the story of the Runners, who are agile speedsters that defy death with every passing day on the rooftops of a sprawling city. You play as Faith, whose sister has been framed...
Anyway, we can't wait for Mirror's Edge and if it delivers the way we think it can, it'll be yet another must-have title of this still-young generation.
