Mirrors Edge Lands Safely In Stores

DICE Redefines the Action Adventure Genre with a New First-Person Perspective, New Freedom of Movement and a New Heroine.

Redwood City, CA. - Nov 11, 2008 - There’s no looking back! DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio (NASDAQ: ERTS), today announced that the highly acclaimed first-person action adventure title, Mirror’s EdgeTM has shipped to retailers worldwide for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system. The PC version of Mirror’s Edge will ship in North America in January 2009. To keep the action coming after launch, DICE is currently developing downloadable content that will be available at the beginning of the year. More details to be announced shortly.
 
Mirror’s Edge is a unique first-person action adventure where players are introduced to Faith, a ‘runner’ in a world where communication channels are highly monitored and the movement of information is closely watched. In the game, players step straight into the shoes of this modern day heroine who traverses vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. When Faith’s sister gets framed for murder, Faith finds herself on the edge of the city, on the wrong side of the law.
 
“We set out to create a game unlike any other; from the core gameplay controls to the main character and the look of the world, we wanted to give gamers a new experience,” said Owen O’Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. “We’re eager for players to experience what true first-person movement feels like in a game. Faith is a very human heroine with no super powers or even a weapon that has been put in an extraordinary situation where she must rely on her agility, intelligence and strength to stay alive.”
 
Featured on the cover of an incredible 39 magazines worldwide, Mirror’s Edge has won numerous critic awards including “Best Xbox 360 Game” at the GC Developers Conference in Leipzig, Germany and the Game Critics Award for “Best Original Game” at E3 in July. Mirror’s Edge was developed at EA Digital Illusions CE AB (DICE) in Stockholm, Sweden. The game is rated “T” by the ESRB and “16+” by PEGI.
