Welcome to the Mirror's Edge Catalyst community forum and the Closed Beta!

In order to foster constructive discussions in a safe, friendly environment, we take our forum rules very seriously and expect our community members to treat each other with respect, even when disagreeing. You can read the full Terms of Service here, but these guidelines will help you contribute to the community!
  • Never insult another member of the community
  • Respect other community members, whether they agree with you or not
  • Flag, don't fight - use the "flag" feature to report posts to our team if you see someone breaking the rules – don't respond to them!
  • Make constructive, on-topic posts that add to the discussion

We'll be working hard to keep the forums a good place for everyone. Our job is to review player reports, help keep the forums organized, provide the community with important information, and always direct players towards helpful information.

Following these guidelines will ensure a great community experience for everyone. Note that violating the rules can lead to infractions and eventually to suspensions of your posting privileges.

    Post Guidelines
    The purpose of these forums is to create a productive and inviting space in which players can discuss, seek help, and give feedback on Mirror's Edge Catalyst. Posts that do not contribute to this end are subject to removal per the judgment of forum staff. Users that regularly violate rules or who are disruptive are subject to disciplinary action (bans) per the judgment of forum staff.

    Use the search feature
    Duplicate content will be removed to promote the usefulness of this forum. Repeat reposting will result in a temporary ban.

    Be descriptive
    Other users may have similar but different ideas or problems. The more information that is provided the more productive your post will be.

    Posting with “DICE” or “EA” in the title of a thread is discouraged

    If you do, your content will be removed and you will receive a temporary ban.

    No swearing

    I’ve been banned from posting on the Community Forums – What do I do?
    Take a break, go for a walk, play some Mirror's Edge Catalyst – it’s not a big deal. We’re not mad at you, you’re not in trouble – you just need a break. Do not post or complain about your ban. This will result in an extension of your ban. Temporary bans are not subject to appeal. If you feel that you have been long-termed banned incorrectly please contact us at help.ea.com or submit an email to accountdisputes@ea.com.

    Being temporarily banned from posting on the Mirror's Edge Catalyst forums means that you have broken the rules of the forum or have not been participating in a constructive fashion. Please review the rules and guidelines as posted above. A short-term ban is our way of preventing further disruptive behavior and asking you to reexamine your behavior.

    Being temporarily banned from posting on Mirror's Edge Catalyst will not prevent you from accessing your game. In extreme cases of misconduct, you will additionally be banned from playing the game.

    Please review our Terms of Service
