Speaking to Kikizo, EA Dice producer Manuel Llanes has confirmed that Mirror’s Edge is “a Fable” in length.
“We’ve aimed around the 12-hour mark,” he said.
Llanes pointed out that the game doesn’t have an open world, but there are variations on routes, which should supply replay value.
“Unlike extremely open world games like Oblivion, we decided to have a focused game with a focused storyboard, a focused experience,” he added.
“But on the other hand, Faith as a runner is extremely agile, and even just in the [starting] area – and of course bigger areas even more so – they accommodate a number of permutations in how to traverse it.”
More through there. Game’s out next week.
