Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Videos Offer Look at Movement and Combat

In Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Faith makes her return to the video game landscape.  Although much has changed since she first came on the scene with 2008’s Mirror’s Edge, two things remain the same.  The unique ways the character approaches movement and combat.

Both features are on display in the latest trailers released by EA.  In the movement trailer, Faith’s fluid, parkour inspired movement is present as she runs, swings, leaps, rolls, and slides her way throughout the futuristic environment. The combat trailer showcases her quick actions as she takes out enemies utilizing a series of kicks and punches, with the environment acting as a springboard to launch attacks.  See Faith’s skillset in action with the trailers below.



My Opinion:

I’m really excited for the return of Mirror’s Edge.  I wasn’t a big fan of the first game, only briefly playing the demo.  Yet, I feel with the developers improving on the core mechanics of the first game they can deliver a sequel of sorts which is much better than the original.
