Keep the Faith
It's all sombre scenes and sad melodies in this Mirror's Edge Catalyst launch trailer, which seems to have arrived a little earlier than we'd normally anticipate. In it, we see protagonist Faith flopping her hair about, sprinting across rooftops, and conversing with characters who'll no doubt maintain DICE's tradition of being 100...
Also Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Need for Speed, and more
Star Wars Battlefront will be playable in the UK for the first time ever at this year's EGX, it's been announced. In fact, EA Games will be bringing a wad of titles to the Birmingham-based event, including Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Need for Speed, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Not a...
You've got to have Faith
Mirror's Edge Catalyst will sprint to the PlayStation 4 on 23rd February in North America and 26th February in Europe, publisher EA announced during its E3 2015 press conference this evening. The game is not a sequel to the original PlayStation 3 title, but instead acts an origin story for Faith. It's also totally open...
Don't look down
The original Mirror’s Edge worked incredibly hard to put you in free-runner Faith’s shoes, employing numerous animations to make you feel like you were sprinting across rooftops and balancing on narrow beams. This level of first-person immersion seems like a perfect fit for virtual reality, with Project Morpheus presumably set...
Back in black
Since its first venture, Mirrors Edge 2 has been on the wish list of many staffers here at Push Square towers – and during EA's press conference, we were given the first juicy details on the free-running action. Heroine Faith returns, with a new minimalistic wardrobe – ditching her bulky bag for a new body belt. Her sleek yet cool...
Light up, light up
While the likes of The Last Guardian and Uncharted PS4 are sending the folks at Push Square towers gaga, it’s free-running follow-up Mirror’s Edge 2 that has this particular editor applying weird eyeliner patterns and jogging on the spot. And in order to reaffirm that the release will be maki
Mirror’s Edge 2 may have been a certainty for EA Games’ sizeable E3 2014 showing ever since it revealed that it’d have six titles on display, but that assumption has now been confirmed courtesy of Spike’s always entertaining All Access Live schedule. Specifically, the itinerary mentions “updates” on the DICE developed
We think it's pretty much set in stone how much fans want another Mirror's Edge game (we're right there with you
), but with DICE heavily involved in this year's first-person shooter showdown with Battlefield 3, you could be forgiven for thinking the series is off-limits for the time being. Realistically you'd probably be right, but that's not stopped DICE's Patrick Liu from making some noise about..
DICE isn't giving up on the Mirror's Edge series, is the message from the developer's creative boss Lars Gustavsson in an interview with VG247
No, the dream is definitely still there, he said. Its a game loved by the studio. Its one of those games where you miss the universe, such as Shadow of the Colossus. I really liked Alan Wake, for example; I miss being in that universe. I miss..
We suspect most gamers that played the original Mirror's Edge live in hope of a sequel
While the original title was far from perfect, but it always felt like it was teetering on the edge of brilliance, in need of a little more iteration to fulfill its potential. Of course, Mirror's Edge succumbed to the new IP syndrome, selling poorly and being pushed to the back of EA's plans. The company has said..
Hot-on-the-heels of rumours that an in-development Mirror's Edge title has been cancelled, EA has told 1Up that the series is still "important" to them
The publisher, however, refused to comment on rumours that a sequel has been squashed, stating it has "nothing further to announce" regarding the immediate plans of the franchise. Our guess is this: Mirror's Edge 2 was in development at..
Mirror's Edge was a sequel away from perfection
EA and DICE's brilliant first-person parkour title was so unique that it didn't get everything right first time around. We're convinced that with a couple of years additional development, and the benefit of hindsight, Mirror's Edge 2 could have been something magical. But the original launched in 2008 and it's now 2011. A report on V!chaku points out..
EA's big boss-man John Riccitiello has told Kotaku that he reckons Mirror's Edge totally deserves a sequel
Were still working through things like how to best deal with Mirrors Edge 2, he said. There are some things we learned about that game. It was, I think, a massively innovative product. To be honest with you, I think its a game that deserves to come back. Innovation doesnt mean..
Remember how Mirror's Edge was so close to being awesome? Yeah, a sequel could fix all the problems and help the franchise achieve its potential
It looks like that sequel is indeed on the cards. An EA DICE lighting artist's profile lists work on two projects, including Battlefield 3 and, ahem, Mirror's Edge 2. [Update: Looks like the offending material has been removed]
Isn't life funny? You may have noticed we've been away this past week
And as such we've been out of contact with our Playstation. One thing we were thinking about buying when we got back though was the Mirror's Edge DLC which released a few months ago. Well Europeans, if like us you've been dreaming of more Mirror's Edge while on holiday, perhaps...
Mirror's Edge had one of the best graphical styles and concepts in years
Sadly, somewhere along the way the execution was a little awry. What should have been a huge release essentially got lost in the shuffle. Thankfully, there is a sequel on the way. While somewhat disappointing for EA, VP of EA Europe Patrick Soderlund has confirmed a sequel is in the works."You will see another Mirror's..
Some photographers are really good
They blur the lines between real life and not-so-real-life. Cue Jesse James Allen and his crew, who've literally brought Mirror's Edge to life with this outstanding photoset. Check it all out here.
Those of you who enjoyed Mirror's Edge on the PS3 late last year might be pleased to hear that EA are to give you people who bought the PS3 version and exclusive time trial map to tide you over until the full DLC hits in February
Watching the video teaser made our eyes hurt.
There's no denying the comparisons between Mirror's Edge and 1984
It's just a futuristic version. Let's face it - Orwell's vision didn't quite come true but if we look further into the future we can see the same ideals just in a different world. Orwell's vision is carried forward in Mirror's Edge where the government confines and censors information...
