Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, the reboot to the much loved freerunning series, will feature some preorder bonuses. This isn’t uncommon, in fact most games feature preorder bonuses as an attempt to entice gamers into preordering. These bonuses normally feature exclusive content or bonuses.
Mirros’s Edge Catalyst is a reboot of the Mirror’s Edge series, which explains main character Faith’s backstory.
According to the Amazon page for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, everyone who preorders the game will receive the “Combat and Speed Runner Kit”. This includes combat and speed themed “Projection” shaders, changing the player’s avatar’s appearance when they invade other player’s games. Preordering also gives access to a “Runner Tag”, allowing your character to stand out in leaderboards.
The Amazon page doesn’t offer any other details, but should more news emerge we’ll update you. There is also the $200 collector’s edition, which includes a figure of Faith both in her adult form and in her child form.
This very nice, but very expensive, collector’s edition has some cool pieces including a figure that reminds players the game is Faith’s backstory as much as a reboot.
