Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is stepping out of the shadows this week

Mirror's Edge information teased

Remember when Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was actually meant to be launching next week? Along with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Well neither of those launches are happening that soon anymore, but at the very least EA and DICE are trying to make it up to fans like you and me with a little more information about the parkour sequel that could’ve never been. Sometime this week at least.

A not so cryptic message via that game’s official Twitter account teases that something new is coming this way this week, whether it be new gameplay, new feature information or just Faith running around for thirty seconds. At this point any Mirror’s Edge news would do it for me.

The sequel is taking a far more pacifist approach to things this time, stripping the player’s ability to pick up and equip enemy firearms while racing through the new, more expansive open-world. You’ll still be able to flying kick and face punch everyone, so it’s not jus about high tailing it out of every situation you find yourself in. But this too has been streamlined to make you feel as though you’re never stopping to move backwards – something the original game was guilty of all the time.

Catalyst is a reboot of sorts for the franchise, and it’s somewhat a miracle that we’re getting a sequel at all. The original Mirror’s Edge had a handful of flaws and didn’t exactly sell all that well, but its cult following kept the interest in Faith and her dystopian world alive long enough to call for another look from EA. And DICE seemed up to the task of tackling their idea again.

I just hope it all comes together when Catalyst launches this coming May. We’ll have any new information that makes its way online up this week.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • As long as Faith is not returning in a buy-able format all is good. Games overload between Rise of the Tomb Raider and X-Com atm.

  • Commander Admiral Chief


    Gonna be too busy anyway

  • PoisonedBelial

    Me right now:

  • No Pratchett involved, no care given.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      So you don’t give a rat-chett?

      • SILENCE!

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          So, you don’t want to be chett-y?

          • VampyreSquirrel

            I think he just wants to hit you with a hat-chett now.

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      If only there was a disc world RPG…

      • HairyEwok

        That would destroy WoW in lore.

        • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

          Well, there’s not a modern day one, but it would be brilliant…and confusing…

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “But this too has been streamlined to make you feel as though you’re never stopping to move backwards”

    That’s every EA game in a nutshell. 🙂

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      To progress, please buy our “Continue your voyage” DLC…

  • Hammersteyn

    The normal game and the game with all the DLC.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      That reminds me, it’s been ages since I’ve had ribs.

      • That’s thoughtless, you can see she thinks she’s had too many…

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Well she shouldn’t have taken mine!

          • I think she’s thinking that too now!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    I’m hoping this game is as good as they’re hyping it up to be.

  • HairyEwok

    EA have some amazing graphical games, Ubisoft have some good stories…. Now let’s combine ubi stories with EA graphics… Probably the worst combination corporate wise but gaming wise it could be a dream team.

  • Dane

    Yes. Come on girl. To save us all.
