The new Mirror’s Edge Catalyst trailer looks amazing. I have been waiting on a sequel to Mirror’s Edge for years (even though I never finished the first game), but a remake will do. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was announced at E3 in 2014 and gamers went wild. The game is set to release May 24th 2016 and this trailer just makes me want this time to fly by.
For those new to the game, you play as Faith:
Follow Faith, a daring free runner, as she fights for freedom in the City of Glass. What appears to be an elegant, high-tech city on the outside, has a terrible secret hidden within. Explore every corner from the highest beautifully lit rooftops to the dark and gritty tunnels below. The city is huge, free to roam and Faith is at the center of it all.
Again, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a remake and not a sequel so a lot of the story points are similar. In the trailer you can see that the style is a little different. The clean and simple color scheme is the same but the cut scenes are a lot more dramatic and realistic. I think this is a welcomed change. Mirror’s edge is a game that can really take advantage of the power of the new consoles.
The game will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. There are talks of some sort of beta so some people may be able to get their hands on the game early. Preorder the game now
