Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is an open-world action-adventure game being developed by EA DICE. It is a Reboot of 2008’s Mirror’s Edge that will focus on Faith’s origin.
Ewan said: “I’ve waited a long time for this. The original Mirror’s Edge was one of the most memorable games I played last generation; it combined innovative gameplay mechanics with an intriguing setting and cast of characters. It really nailed fast, fluid, free-running gameplay in a 3D space and I think the game has a lot to gain from the upgraded hardware the current generation. Hopefully the plot’s a little more coherent, the mecahnics refined and the wait worthwhile.”
Mehdi said: “The first Mirror’s Edge has always been the type of game where I see a lot of potential, but there are still a lot of rough edges to be taken care of. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst from what I’ve played so far is exactly the game I wanted a few years ago, and DICE has done a great job at making a game that caters to both new and existing fans.”
