The week began with three new additions to EA access with the Mass Effect trilogy but it seems EA weren’t finished with the update to the EA Access Vault. As of yesterday, Mirror’s Edge and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst joined the Vault, and as of today UFC 2 does.
[Edit] The previously mentioned Skate 3 has joined the ever growing list of backwards compatible titles, but is currently not in the EA Access Fault.
Both Catalyst and UFC 2 are relatively new titles, so it’s a great boon to see them hit the Vault so early. Moreover, our very own Rich Berry gave Catalyst a whopping 8/10 in his review, stating that:
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst mixes open world mechanics from many other titles in the genre and lovingly wraps it in the slick style of the City of Glass. It looks stunning and runs smoothly…
Meanwhile, our own Derek McRoberts gave UFC 2 a staggering 8.9/10 in his review, stating:
If you have any interest in realistic fighting games, UFC2 is a sound investment I can’t recommend enough.
Indeed, if you’ve got EA Access we can’t recommend picking these title up enough.
What other EA titles would you like to see in the Vault? Why not tell us in the comments below.
I thoroughly enjoyed Mirror’s Edge but the game didn’t give away too much about Faith’s origin story, that is until now. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst looks beautiful, see for yourself with EA’s E3 trailer below, certainly the highlight of their show for me!
Catalyst promises complete open-world freedom with various environmental puzzles and time trials all integrated in to the main game space.
Claudiu have been busy working away on something a bit awesome… a real-life Mirror’s Edge Catalyst time trial short – it’s so good that it took me a few minutes to realise that it wasn’t in-game footage! Watch and behold:
The personal project was shot with a GoPro in Croydon, UK and took eight months to complete, taking inspiration from last year’s Mirror’s Edge trailer shown at E3.
