Whoa, they’ve officially announced Mirror’s Edge 2 for the PS4, XBOne, and PC! This is exciting news as fans have requested a sequel for a while now and now we are finally going to get one. Earlier this evening at EA’s press conference at E3, they announced Mirror’s Edge 2, with a grand reveal trailer. This trailer showed some gameplay and a lot of CGI cinematics (probably to show off next gen console graphics). I’ve posted the video just below.
But before excited chatter eschews, let’s get some newcomers caught up on Mirror’s Edge.
Mirror’s Edge was a first-person free-runner game originally released for the PS3 and X360 and was ported a few months later. It emphasised parkour and escaping from mobs of opponents rather than fighting them. With a first person perspective and watching only the limbs show on screen with motion blur effects gave a strong feel of performing the free-running (virtually obviously). The mechanic that really set this game apart was maintaining the protagonist’s momentum throughout the level, or else you will fall short of your jump, slide, or other acrobatic maneuver of transversing the environment.
Story plot? The story is based in a nameless dystopian city. Everything from media to communications is monitored and controlled. It is in this dystopia that a mayoral campaign is underway. The current mayor is being challenged by deregulation and has his competition assassinated. The protagonist’s, Faith’s, sister is framed for the assassination and it is up to Faith to find out who.
Now that we’re caught up, please discuss. Generally the fans have given positive feedback on the announcement, however the Asian fans don’t seem to like the appearance of Faith. Never have now that I think about it.
