Mirror’s Edge DLC announced along with PC version ship date

Word has dropped that Mirror’s Edge DLC is on its way for both the 360 and the PS3. While no firm release date has been set the new content will be nine races across seven completely new Time Trail maps. If the above video is any indication these maps won’t be based in any city either, but an abstract world designed specifically for smooth running. There won’t be any guns, cops or city life in the trails. With Time Trail being one of the most popular modes in ME and cops and guns being one of the major complaints from reviewers, this DLC should get people pretty excited. The asking price for these lovely new levels will be $10 or 800 MS points. It also finally pays off to have the PS3 version of a game as owners of the big black box will be able to download an extra map for free.

In other exciting news, all you PC gamers will finally be able to see what all the fuss is about when the game ships for the PC on Jan. 13 in North America and worldwide on Jan. 16. It will be interesting to see if this style of first-person game still controls better on a PC. I’m guessing yes, but you never know.
