DICE announced today that the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst closed beta will run from April 22 – 26 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC:

If you have been selected for the Closed Beta and you are a Frontrunner, you will receive an email with your code on April 22nd. Others who made it into the Closed Beta will receive their code on April 23rd.

They add that beta sign-ups are now closed.

During the beta, participants will be able to try out several main missions in Faith’s story, side missions, other optional content, the Social Play features. You’ll need a persistent online connection during the beta, and any progress made won’t transfer over to the full game.

Since it is a beta, DICE warns that “the experience will not be the same as the final product.” They’ll be using the beta to gather feedback from the community, while also testing the Social Play elements and online systems.

In the above video, Social Play is detailed, including how to create your own Time Trials, place Beat Location Emitters in the city of Glass for your friends to find, and play the challenging Dashes designed by DICE.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst launches on May 24 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
