A reboot to the 2008 action adventure platformer Mirror's Edge. The game will revolve around Faith's origin and attempt to overthrow a totalitarian conglomerate of corporations who rule the city of Glass. Like in Mirror's Edge, players will traverse the city using parkour movements to complete missions, evade enemies or knock them off their feet.
Unlike in the original, the game will be open world allowing players to take multiple paths to reach an objective as oppose to the levels linear paths of Mirror's Edge. The game will feature side activities such as time trials, races, and environmental puzzles, with the developer DICE promising there will be no loading times in the final product.
The combat system has been overhauled, and the player will no longer be able to use firearms like that the original, focusing more on the parkour movements and melee combat of the game.
Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is looking to take everything from the original and completely overhaul it and improve it creating a more flexible and open gameplay for the players. It is being developed using DICE's Frostbite 3 engine (Star Wars Battlefront) and looks beautiful. If you were a fan of the original, you are sure to love this reboot.
