Mirror's Edge DLC coming Jan. 29

There's good news this morning for Mirror's Edge fans of all platform persuasions. PC users, you'll actually get to play the game when it finally appears on store shelves this week. For the 360 or PS3 people, DICE has nailed down the nebulous "January" release date for the Time Trial DLC to the 29th.

For $10, you'll get nine races spanning seven brand new maps. Comparing the screens we've seen in the gallery below to the maps in the retail version, the DLC looks a little less "realistic" and a little more, "Hey, we didn't have to pay for textures," but we'll hold off on judging until we lay our own eyes on them.
