Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Gameplay Revealed at E3

DICE’s Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst took the stage during EA’s press conference at E3 earlier and with it came some great news. Expect the return on February 23, 2016. As mentioned before, this will not be a sequel but a new game. This prequel of sorts will chronicle the origin of the main character Faith in the City of Glass.

The world is much bigger (and colorful) than before and creates a more appealing game. DICE also mentioned that the game will not see any loading screens or levels. With nothing like loading times or any sort of mandatory objectives to get in one’s way, this will bring a new meaning to the term free roaming.

Mirror’s Edge is a New Game With a New Name

Yesterday the title for the new Mirror’s Edge game came out as Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, and now we have the box art for the much awaited title.

Contrary to what many were led to believe, the new game is actually just that… a NEW game. DICE Senior Producer Sara Jansson made the claim saying Catalyst  “is not a sequel, this is not Mirror’s Edge 2. We have landed on a vision that honors the first game — pushing the boundaries of first person movement and diving deeper into the story behind our heroine Faith — but also brings a lot of great new, interesting gameplay and features to the experience for our players.”

The new Mirror’s Edge title was teased at E3 in 2013 and the minimal amount of exposure created some of the biggest buzz coming out of the expo. The early earnings report from EA revealed that the target date for a release would be sometime in early 2016. But for now, you can wait for E3 next week for some more developments when EA takes the floor on Monday, June 15 at 1 pm PDT / 4 pm EDT.

Fans of EA’s Mirror’s Edge were teased by the franchise’s return at E3 2013 and have been patiently waiting for something resembling news of a release date. Well, earnings reports from EA for 2015 list the much awaited sequel as a launch title for the fourth quarter of their fiscal year.

eaNow, Q4 for EA starts on the first of January and ends on March 31. So at this moment, everyone should expect a release somewhere in there. It doesn’t hurt that the studio DICE is overseeing the project and speaks about the game claiming it’s visually “elegant” and “minimalistic”. It’s great to hear because these are all properties that served the first game so well. Expect some new looks at the sequel when EA comes to E3 2015 starting on June 16 2015.
