'Mirror's Edge' (ALL) Demo Unlocks Time Trial Mode

by Rainier on Dec. 16, 2008 @ 10:53 a.m. PST

Mirror's Edge is a revolutionary new take on the First Person Action Adventure category. You are part of an underground group of concerned citizens who, not relying on technology, use runners to relay messages.

In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed and now you are being hunted. You are a Runner called Faith - and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story.

Mirror’s Edge delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith’s world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous. Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain, in this city, you will learn how to run.

Mirror's Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of this modern day heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. With a never-before-seen sense of movement and perspective, players are drawn into Faith's world.

By using any 16 number code (i.e. 0000-0000-0000-000) gamers can experience the thrill of seamlessly stringing moves together in an effort to beat the clock! To unlock the Time Trial mode players need to select Race > Play Time Trial in the main menu of the demo, and then enter the code. Unlocking the game mode works with already downloaded versions of the demo.

The demo features the prologue of the game, a tutorial and sections of the popular Time Trial mode. Time Trial is an addictive mode that challenges players to find the fastest routes throughout the city. Gamers can upload their best time to the Mirror’s Edge online leaderboards for their friends to download and compete against. Players can see their friend’s ‘ghost’ run as they race to the top of the leaderboards.

Key Features :

  • A young woman without a home until she is taken in and trained by the Runners. Your incredible gifts allow you to swiftly navigate the city while eluding those who would try to stop you.
  • Heights create vertigo, movements flow naturally, collisions are felt realistically, and muscles and tendons strain as you chase and are chased throughout the city.
  • Perform amazing acrobatic moves from below street level, through buildings, and up to the dizzying heights of hyper real skyscrapers as you face off against your enemies or run for your life.
  • An exciting mix of chase, intense combat, strategy and puzzles draw you into a world like never before.

Mirror's Edge, developed by EA DICE, is currently available worldwide for Xbox 360 and PS3, while the PC version will ship in North America on Jan. 13, and worldwide on Jan. 16, 2009.
