Mirror's Edge Catalyst :

is an upcoming action-adventure platform video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. It is a follow-up to 2008's Mirror's Edge and will revolve around Faith's past.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a first-person action-adventure game in which players take control of Faith Connors as she progresses through a futuristic city called Glass. Similar to the original Mirror's Edge, players traverse the city usingparkour movements to complete missions and evade enemies or knock them off of their feet. Players can also make use of environmental objects such as zip-lines and ledges to travel across buildings. When players mark an objective on their map, Faith's "runner vision" is activated and some scenery items automatically highlight in red. These act as indicators to players whether a structure is climbable or not and as guides to lead players towards their objective. The use of levels and linear gameplay found in the first Mirror's Edge has been replaced with an open-world, free-roaming environment. This gives players more freedom in traversal, allowing for the use of multiple paths to reach one's objective. In addition to the campaign's mission, side activities such as time trials, races and environmental puzzles will be featured. DICE also promises that no loading screen will be included in the final game, allowing for freedom to travel within all areas without loading delays. Additionally, items called Gridleaks can be found across the world that can be collected by players.

Combat mechanics of the game received an overhaul and a new combat system was developed as traversal is greatly emphasized in the game. Also, though only used sparingly in the previous game, Mirror's Edge Catalyst has removed the use of guns by the player altogether, focusing on Faith's running and parkour movements and quick melee-style attacks to take down or evade her enemies. According to Sara Jansson, the senior producer of the game, the combat and fighting featured will be an extension to the game's movement instead of a separated set. When Faith is performing a finishing move, the game switches to a third-person perspective.

Multiplayer features are also included. Instead of having any co-operative multiplayer or competitive multiplayer mode, the game features synchronous multiplayer in which players' actions in the game can affect the world for other players' games. Leaderboard for races will also be featured.

Development Story :

The new Mirror's Edge game was officially revealed in June 2013 at the Electronic Arts press event at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2013. It will be released forMicrosoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game was announced soon after as a prequel to Mirror's Edge showcasing the origins of Faith, and will use the newer Frostbite 3 engine. However, more recently Sara Jansson stated that the game is not being seen as either a reboot or a prequel. Electronic Arts also confirmed in 2013 that the game will be an "open-world action adventure". According to DICE's general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, the game will focus on the first-person combat mechanics building upon the first-person movement mechanics that were present in the first game. As the game features a free-roaming environment, the runner vision from the first game had been completely redesigned to adapt this structure. The runner vision in Catalyst can recalculate the path for players towards their objectives or waypoints.

The game was featured at E3 for a second time in June 2014, and prototype gameplay was briefly shown. It has been suggested the new Mirror's Edge will have more varied gameplay for Faith and Runners, where they will serve a greater purpose than in the first game. In January 2014, writer Rhianna Pratchettannounced on Twitter that she would not be involved with the new game and neither would most of the original team. Mirror's Edge was confirmed to have a planned release date of February 23, 2016.

The title Mirror's Edge Catalyst was formally announced in June 2015 prior to E3 2015; DICE product manager Sara Jansson affirmed that the game is not a sequel but will delve into more of Faith's past while expanding on the original game's first-person perspective experience. On June 15, at E3, and later on the Mirror's Edge YouTube channel, DICE released a new trailer for Mirror's Edge Catalyst, revealing elements of the game's storyline and environment. It was confirmed that the game would feature an open-world design and Faith will no longer be able to use guns. The game's Collector Edition was announced on July 9, 2015. It will include a figurine of Faith, a steel book, a lithograph, temporary tattoos, and a storage box.
