Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has officially been confirmed by EA and DICE, and will not be standard sequel, but rather a reboot.
The information comes after we reported yesterday the registration of a trademark and domain.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will feature at E3 next week, but ahead of the flurry of information, DICE and game senior producer Sara Jansson posted a message outlining the vision for the game.
“Mirror’s Edge has always had a special place in the hearts of all of us at DICE. The first game had a lot of promise. It was unlike anything else in terms of the gameplay and style – it had a unique soul. But as much as we loved that game, we knew it could be more. So that’s what we have set out to do as we introduce Mirror’s Edge to a new generation.”
Jansson goes on to say, with the current generation of consoles, the team has been able to reimagine it and bring it in line with what they’d hoped the game would be.
“The team has spent a lot of time re-evaluating every aspect of the game and making it a new experience. This is not a sequel, this is not Mirror’s Edge 2. We have landed on a vision that honours 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 free-running, visually stunning game will be a welcome addition to anyone’s game collection. We loved the original game and can’t wait to hear more about it at E3 next week.
The game is scheduled for release early next year.
