While Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is still primarily a single-player experience, the game has some multiplayer features. As such, EA is holding a closed beta available for sign-up right now.
In an interview with IGN at E3 2015, DICE’s Patrick Bach explained:
“We have asynchronous play in the multiplayer component…an asynchronous connection where your actions will affect my world,” he said. In addition to things like leaderboards, Bach cited elements like being able to have your hacked billboards show up in another player’s game.
While the team isn’t tacking on some half-baked multiplayer elements, there certainly seems to be enough here to warrant some testing. This, personally, is my favorite kind of multiplayer, so I can’t wait to try it out.
The link to the sign-up page is in the source link below, so make sure to sign up for a chance to take part. This beta is happening on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Additionally, EA unveiled a new trailer that gives us a peek at the story. It looks a little hackneyed, but I’m still into it all the same.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst hits PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 24, 2016.
