Arriving a day earlier than announced, the trial version of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is now downloadable for EA Access subscribers.
Through EA’s Xbox One?exclusive paid subscription service, members are generally able to play games a few days prior to their launch. However, the much anticipated sequel to the parkour-action game Mirror’s Edge has released a day before the early access was originally scheduled. (Call it extra-early access.) As found by NeoGAF user Fortinbras, the trial mode?which contains the full game, but is limited in the amount of time you can spend playing?comes in at just over 16GB.
Catalyst builds upon the previous game with several significant changes. The sequel places the protagonist, Faith, in an open-world city to explore instead of the smaller, more linear levels of the first game. Secondly, Faith can no longer wield weapons, allowing the game to focus even more on her parkour-inspired combat.
For non-subscribers, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst releases June 7th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
