Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst has suffered another delay, and will now becoming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 7th in North America.
DICE Design Director Erik Odeldahl explained the team’s decision to push the game out of its original May launch window through a post on the Mirror’s Edge website, citing a desire to fine tune its “Social Play” features.
To support the Social Play features, we are using a brand new online technology,” Odeldahl explained. “We also want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta. That is why we will give ourselves a bit more time to perfect the game, with a new release date for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst of June 7th (NA) and June 9th (EU). We’re confident that these extra two weeks will make sure the game is as amazing as possible for you the players.”
Social Play is a feature that will allow players to create their own speed runs of Catalyst’s levels, ones that other online players can attempt to complete. DICE will give fans a chance to try out these features in the game’s upcoming beta that starts tomorrow, April 22nd.
