Have Faith in a Catalyst for Mirror’s Edge

1 min read

Mirror s edge

I have overcome my first-person induced nausea. Simulator sickness is still mostly a thing of the past, although I’m still not quite confident enough in that statement to test out the Oculus Rift, or even to play Dying Light. Mirror’s Edge is one of the games that I was very sad to miss out on back in the day, but I might just be able to set things in motion to try out the next instalment, Catalyst.

After EA trademarked and registered the Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst domain, obviously everyone presumed we’d only get confirmation during E3. While that’s still probably the case, at least this hint was dropped on twitter:

One could certainly argue that Faith was a catalyst for change in Mirror’s Edge, and it could be a nice name for the second game in the franchise. People are getting hyped and excited, but I’m still just a little bit worried. What if this isn’t the actual Mirror’s Edge 2 game that everyone is hoping for, but some sort of tie-in title? You know, I don’t want to even bring that kind of pessimism in. We already had reason to believe that EA would tell us more about the latest Mirror’s Edge game at E3 this year – let’s just try to excited instead of nervous and assume this new game will be called Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst.

So, EA will be showing off Mirror’s Edge, Mass Effect and Battlefront. Does that balance out the obligatory Sims and Sports content, too?

    You didn’t really miss all that much. Hopefully Catalyst will be to Mirror’s Edge what AC2 was to AC1. Otherwise it’ll just be Mehrror’s Edge.

      Or knowing EA and Battlefield 4 they’ll just rename it to “Errors Edge”

      Yea. It was alright. The stupid savepoint system ruined the game.

        I didn’t notice that, because I don’t die as much in games as you do. *run*

          I’m not good at only pressing one button throughout an entire game, that’s why I died all the time!
          Okay fine. I die all the time in everything. Strangely even Solitaire.

      the first one was by no means a masterpiece, but it was interesting.
      and the game styling was awesome.

    I enjoyed Mirror’s Edge, but just felt it was too short after all the hype.

      Yip. The parkour focus was fun change to normal game mechanics, Faith was cool, but overall the game was pretty average really.

        Well, it was a totally new idea, a breath of fresh air. Magnificent? Ground breaking? No. But nice to have a new idea

    I loved Mirror’s Edge 1.
    This is my reaction to the announcement of Mirror’s Edge 2…

    EA brings a NEW approach
    Mirror of Mirror’s Edge
    It’s the same, but everything is flipped the other way around.

    It’s actually a mirror. That’s what Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is… a mirror you can buy for the price of one season pass :p

      Pay 15 Dollars to run up the wall… another 10 and you’ll be able to do ledge grabs…

    I hope that this is good, I really do, but after playing Dying Light, it’s hard to imagine playing another parkour game where you don’t get to fight someone with tangible effect, Mirrors Edge 1 always felt like a flight game more than a fight game, which is understandable, but a few hours of running was never going to hold up against an industry fuelled by guns and explosions….
