Climbing up the building

It’s definitely still alive. Confirming that this year’s E3 is off to an absolute stormer, EA has revealed that Mirror’s Edge 2 is in development – and will release when it’s ready. The debut trailer – embedded below – shows protagonist Faith getting inked, and racing through a slew of serene environments. The title will run on the Frostbite 3 engine, which pretty much guarantees that it will look beautiful.

While the announcement is definitely a treat, it’s hardly a surprise. The sequel has been on the cards for a while now, and rumours regarding its status have intensified over recent weeks. You can inject this one right into our veins – only the resurrection of The Last Guardian could top this announcement in our eyes. It’s good thing that Sony’s show is still to come, huh?

Update: EA's official press release has described this game as a "reboot". It's in the "early stages of development" for PlayStation 4.
