Mirror's Edge DLC In January, Extra Time Trial Map For PS3
Mirror's Edge remains one of our favorite games of 2008, which is why we can't wait for the impending DLC next month. After the New Year, DICE will bring a special Time Trial Map Pack to both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace, with a special bonus for PS3 owners!
As found at the official PlayStation blog, the DLC will offer "nine races across seven all-new and totally redesigned Time Trial maps." And as the message says, you won't have to worry about any resistance on these surreal landscapes that are clearly heaven for the pure Runner. It's difficult to explain, so you really need to check out the trailer for the Time Trial Map Packs, which shows off several ingeniously designed levels that get our blood pumping. If you got a little tired of the trial-and-error repetition of the single-player campaign, and a little annoyed at the constant authority entanglements, this DLC is just for you. You will focus purely on Faith's speed, agility, and reflexes, which means you will have to memorize the correct/best path for each map before you can compete with the best. Oh, and PS3 owners get the benefit of an exclusive Time Trial map, absolutely free. Yay!
And if you haven't picked up Mirror's Edge yet - perhaps it's on your holiday wish list - this is a great excuse to nab it in January. Really, this is one of the more unique, refreshing, and entertaining titles of the new generation.
