DICE, critically acclaimed creators of the unique parkour-action game Mirror’s Edge, released Thursday the long awaited Pure Time Trial downloadable content for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.

The totally redesigned Time Trial maps feature no weapons, police, or city, just Faith and her red gloves and interesting eye shadow. Here its all about racing and the slightest miscalculation or overextension will send Faith plummeting to her untimely demise.

The seven new maps and nine races will challenge even the hardened fan to achieve the fastest time possible.‚  As an added incentive, players can upload their best time to the leaderboards and say “beat that” to any challenger, who can then download their ghost and compete against it.

In addition to new maps, this Friday the full 2D version of Mirror’s Edge will be released at mirrorsedge2D.com.‚  Created with hand-crafted animation in a familiar platforming model, Mirror’s Edge 2D looks to keep player interest in the console title while at the comfort of their PC.‚  I have spent a great deal of time with the beta available here, and I must say, the music alone is enough to bring me back again and again, the incredible game-play is just icing on the cake.

Mirror’s Edge time trial DLC is available‚  for 800 MS points for Xbox 360 and 10$ USD for Playstation 3 and PC enthusiasts.‚  Furthermore, Playstation 3 owners can rejoice over an exclusive map free of charge.
