Free running! Both Mirror’s Edge games come to EA Access

On a historic day like today, just walking to the post office can feel like wading through tar, so what better to soothe any Trump trauma than a bit of freerunning? Both Mirror’s Edge and its 2016 prequel, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, have added to the EA Access Vault on Xbox platforms today and are free to all subscribers.

The EA Access scheme allows players early access to new titles and a sizeable vault of older games which can be played as long as the user is still subscribed. Mirror’s Edge was originally released in 2008 for the Xbox 360, but has since been brought to the Xbox One via Microsoft’s backwards compatibility scheme.

Catalyst was released earlier this year to mixed reviews. The refresh featured open-world elements absent from the original game, which was strictly linear, and an enhanced combat system. We thought it was a “thrilling and sure-footed” outing, which unfortunately made serious mistakes in the narrative and acting department.

EA Access subscribers will also be happy to know that Star Wars: Battlefront will also be joining the Vault before the end of 2016. You can see the complete list of current games featured in the programme below.
