Mirror's Edge Catalyst Is Out February 23, 2016

We already knew Mirror's Edge Catalyst was coming, but E3 brought us the first details on the series reboot.

"Personal freedom comes at a price" is the theme underscoring Mirror's Edge: Catalyst.

It's an origin story about Faith, how she grows up and "opens the eye of an entire city." Basically, they're holding onto the game's original premise but ditching the game's storyline.

(It's OK. It wasn't very good.)

There are no levels or loading times either. You free-roam around an entire city in Mirror's Edge Catalyst, and it seems the various story missions and optional goals are littered around.

Perhaps most importantly? DICE said "she doesn't need any guns". The gun sequences from the original Mirror's Edge didn't really work, so I'm happy to hear they're totally ditching them.

Plus, it's not that far off, really. February!

    Looks like everything I wanted in a Mirror's Edge Sequel!

    “she doesn’t need any guns”

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

      This was true in the first game..... It added to the satisfaction of walking up to a group of cops, and throwing the gun away :p

      This looks awesome, though. Really impressed by how great the world and atmosphere looks.

        Yeah, that's what I loved most about the first game. I'm just glad they're keeping it in place for this one. My "Test of Faith" achievement is one of my favourite gaming trophies! :)

      YEEEESSSSSSSS!!

      *high five*

      The only thing I really wanted them to change from the first game was ditching the crap shooting bits. The running / jumping stuff was awesome.
