Electronic Arts has revealed new details on the upcoming Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, the next game in the Mirror’s Edge franchise.
The game, slated for release on February 23, 2016 and under production by DICE, will be a prequel to Mirror’s Edge and will once again star Faith as the main character. The story will center on her origins into her role for a heroine for the city of Glass, a place where people have lost their personal privacy in exchange for safety. Faith will slowly uncover a hidden truth that lies beneath the pristine surface of the city.
The game will run on the Frostbite engine, and according to EA there will be no levels or load times. Instead Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will be a completely open world and will allow players to explore every corner of a massive city. The game will reportedly have activities such as racing, environmental puzzles, and story missions for the player to complete.
Sara Jansson, Senior Producer at DICE, stated the following regarding why such changes were made:
When we set out to bring Mirror’s Edge to a new generation of gamers, we knew we wanted to deliver on the potential of the first game – building an iconic heroine in Faith, bringing a beautiful, stylized world to life, and delivering fluid first person action… In Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, you will get to feel what it’s like to glide across the skyline of the city. You will get to know what it feels like to be a projectile who plows through your opponents. And you will get to experience Faith’s story.
The game will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on Origin next year. More details on the game will likely follow in the coming days.
