Pure Time Trials



Leave the city behind in these extreme and creative Time Trials. The Pure Time Trials are 10 new Time Trial maps for you to conquer. They include several different designs and visual spectacles for you to parkour across. Take on even more challenging Time Trials and time limits as you wallrun on cubes, jump nearly impossible gaps, climb around a trick tower, and more.

Synesthesia Time Trial



Also make sure to download the Free DLC Map Synesthesia to make your collection of crazy Time Trials up to 11 maps. This teaser map for the Pure Time Trials DLC gives you a taste of the difference these stretches are compared to the city enviorment you first raced across.



[top]Tips & Strategies

  • There is a move that will help you shave seconds off of your Pure Time Trial times. It's called the Side Jump Boost. Basically, you kick sideways in order to start sprinting quicker. In order to pull this off and you'll get it easy with some practice, you need to face 90 degrees in either direction of which way you want to go and Side Jump (Left or Right on joystick and ) and immediately turn towards your desired direction. Faith will get up to full speed pretty quickly and you should use this to make the most out of any long stretches of running or if you ever come to a full stop. The video below will demonstrate how this is done.

  • As you also see in the video above, doing coil jumps are faster than straight sprinting. I've found that it can be messy trying to do that everywhere just to shave time. If your up to the challenge of coil jumping everywhere to make your times less, go for it.
  • If you haven't completed Mirror's Edge's main game Time Trials, although you do not need all 99 stars available between the main game and DLC content, you will need 90 stars leaving you only 9 stars you can miss totally throughout all Time Trials.
  • After performing tricks such as wallrunning, climbing, landing huge gaps, etc., you will gain reaction time. Your cross hair will turn blue when you have earned it. Reaction time will slow down time for you when you press . You can use this to overcome something that may be hard to perform at full speed.
  • Take a break! Seriously. If you get stuck on a particular Time Trial, take a break, play a different stretch, or quit playing for a little bit. Restarting the same stretch over and over again can actually have you repeating the same mistakes over again leaving you REALLY frustrated.

U-turn
String together: wallrun, wallrun, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

These string of moves can be performed anywhere that they are possible to perform, but there's a certain place this can be done and a video to show you. On the Velocity Time Trial, there's a great place to pull this off. This can be tricky and requires you to be at the right place on the wall. After getting past the beginning jumps, you'll jump up to a platform where two walls are high above you and you run through a shaded sort of hallway. You can perform this string of moves here by wallrunning on the left wall, turn your view to the right wall and jump to it, then wallrun the right wall, turn pretty instantly, jump to swing on a bar, and jump off. Once you string together the moves in one sequence, this trophy will unlock.

See Twister for a full walkthrough on tricks.

Dicey launch
String together: slide, wallrun, wall climb, turn, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

These string of moves can be performed anywhere that they are possible to perform, but there's a certain place this can be done and a video to show you. On the Flow Time Trial , there's a great place to pull this off. This can be tricky and requires the right timing of your jump from the slide. There is a long purple piece you must slide down to continue in the Time Trial. You can perform this string of moves here by jumping at the right white wall, jumping again at the white wall ahead, wallclimbing that wall, turn , and jump off on the platform. Once you string together the moves in one sequence, this trophy will unlock.

See Twister for a full walkthrough on tricks.

Surreptitious swing
String together: springboard, wallrun, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

These string of moves can be performed anywhere that they are possible to perform, but there's a certain place this can be done and a video to show you. On the Actino Rise Time Trial, there's a great place to pull this off. After getting up the first level of jumps, you'll come towards a neon yellow springboard jump. You'll want to jump on this springboard diagonally forward and to the right. This will set you up to wallrun on the white wall to continue the string of moves. You want to jump up the springboard, wallrun on the white pillar-like wall, immediately turn , jump and swing off the bar and up the ledge. Once you string together the moves in one sequence, this trophy will unlock.

The twister
String together: wallclimb, turn, swing, wallclimb, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

These string of moves can be performed anywhere that they are possible to perform, but there's a certain place this can be done and a video to show you. On the Kinetic Time Trial, there's a great place to pull this off. In the middle of the level, there is a platform to your left instead of continuing on the cube walls along the level. Once you are on it, you will see a yellow wall with symbols running up it. Run towards the wall and jump up it and wall climb , immediately turn , and jump :l1 to the bar, swing forward and wallclimb the wall, immediately turn , and jump to the bar and swing off the bar onto the platform. Once you string together the moves in one sequence, this trophy will unlock.

To explore strange new worlds
Attain a Time Trial star rating of 75. [Pure Time Trials]

You will need to obtain 75 Time Trial stars. Once you've obtained 75 stars from Time Trials, this trophy will unlock.

See Superstar for a full walkthrough on Time Trial Stars.

Superstar
Attain a Time Trial star rating of 90. [Pure Time Trials]

You will need to obtain 90 Time Trial stars. There are 3 qualifying times and 3 corresponding stars on each Time Trial stretch. These are a lot of fun but require patience, concentration, and nearly perfection. There are a total of 99 Time Trial stars including the main game's, the free Synesthesia Time Trial Map, and the Pure Time Trials DLC . The Free Synesthesia DLC Map adds 3 stars itself and the Pure Time Trials DLC adds 10 maps equaling 30 stars for a total of 33 stars. You should complete the Main Game's Time Trials first and try to get 3 stars on all of those stretches as the Pure Time Trials are much more difficult to get all 3 stars on. If you only got the 50 stars required for the Mirror's Edge , you will need to go back and get 3 stars on some of the main game stretches. If you get 3 stars on every Time Trial in the Main Game, you will have 66 stars to start with. Once you've obtained 90 stars from Time Trials, this trophy will unlock.
