EA have officially announced Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the second game in the Mirror's Edge series.
This is either a prequel, remake or bizarre remaster...
agreed, or one hell of a reboot.
Rebooting a series that consists of only one game?
Catalyst would be a weird name for a reboot..
Really can't wait to see more and hopefully play soon
Hopefully "interesting gameplay" doesn't mean more guns, we have enough of those in other games. I'd be fine if guns weren't even an option anywhere in the game.
I'd like the option to keep a weapon though and holster it. Not around being a shooter though but take down a guard and grab their gun and keep it just for a sticky situation with limited ammo.
Well whatever it is I can't wait. Loved the first one and we need more female leads like the Tomb Raider remake.
I'm sure your motivations there are entirely pure and in line with feminist ideals.
You don't have to be a feminist to want female leads. Also screw feminism.
@Voodoo, I think he was being sarcastic... Look at the name of the person he replied to...
Free the ending of the first I was looking forward to a sequel of Fayth on the run from the law
This title makes it sound like a digital only game.
I don't really care what time it's set in – just as long as I can have me some 1080p/60 fps parkour done right, I'm good.
Bring it on!
I thought they said a while ago it wasn't going to be a sequel but a retelling. Showing you how she became a runner and that. Don't understand why they didn't just do a sequel but I guess they think people would be lost in story for those who never played it and would rather reboot it.
Mirror's Edge wasn't bad and certainly was fresh for EA, it sounds like a reboot and a prequel all at once! Because it's going deeper into who Faith is. I'm excited... EA's presser this year should be strong. SW:Battlefront - DICE Mirror's Edge: Catalyst - DICE Need For Speed - Ghost Studios New Mass Effect - Bioware Montreal New Bioware IP - Bioware Edmonton New Criterion IP - Criterion Games New Star Wars Game - Viceral Games And then all the bullshit sports games from there Sport only studios. This is the first time in a long time that I'm excited for EA, they actually have a powerful line up of games that I'm likely to buy day one. Mass Effect, SW:Battlefront, Mirror's Edge:Catalyst, Viceral's Star Wars Game and Bioware Edmonton's New Ip all sound stellar
Gamers have only been asking for a sequel for ~6 years, EA. About time you get around to it after ignoring it and instead doing things like running Dead Space into the ground.
What is with this trend from the past couple years of everyone blowing their E3 load early and announcing everything a week in advance?
I don't understand how it really matters to gamers. Whether we learn the name now or in a week we're still getting the same information. It probably gives them more exposure to have an announcement of the name now and a gameplay demo at E3 in a week from now.
It doesn't really matter, it just seems like it has changed the past couple years and everyone announces early nowadays.
I believe all these prior to E3 reveals and leaks are done on purpose to allow publishers to gauge gamers reaction before they announce anything where it matters and inevitably hurts more. They do like the publicity and sales boost after a successful E3, especially when crowned winners by gamers and news outlets. Can it be true, that these companies actually learn from past mistakes? I'll be darned!
The answer is simple. If you get the big announcements out of the way, you can use E3 to focus on live gameplay demos. Remember, E3 livestreams are watched by millions. The best way to sell a game is through gameplay. Also, during E3 there are dozens of announcements. It's easy for games to get lost in all the excitement.
"Also, during E3 there are dozens of announcements. It's easy for games to get lost in all the excitement." That's probably the best explanation right there.
tch at least the old mirrors edge is the best game i mean the game is safe from idiot milk sequels and bablabla shit things mirrors edge is master piece but i think this mirrors edge catalyst will be a huge milk like ac by ubisoft :( this is why the make reboot to make this to be series milk, multiplayer open world shit. the new picture is strange loks like faith is less asian now wtf man EA? and whats with that futurastic city, flying droids?
this is my last hope for anything EA dose, i could care less about mass effect because after 3 i felt like it was nothing more then a waste of my time to the point where i envied those who never played it. star wars battlefront from all that i have heard is such a huge let down for me because you can't play the multiplayer without being online with bots like the old games. so there are modes you won't be able to use without paying for xbox live or PSN. Need for Speed ? lol the best ones i played where underground 1 & 2 then need for speed : most wanted back in 2008 and that is still my favorite racing game of all time. this new one wants to force you to be online all the time or the game is no more then a 60 dollar coaster and i could care less about any of there sports games...if they mess this up i will never buy any of there games again..sick of there crap.
If this is indeed a AAA game and not some weird web/mobile/spinoff game, then I find the fact that it isn't a sequel very interesting. I for one felt mislead by early descriptions of the premise into thinking that the story was going to involve a bunch of gang wars, interesting conspiracies and intrigue. The final story was oddly complicated considering how few characters and plot points there were. Too few interesting moments or conversations and one too many betrayals just made the whole thing feel empty. It was disappointing too since the setting and the premise was really fascinating. The whole idea of two sides of the city where Runners were the only ones who could effectively traverse the two was an interesting but unexplored concept. Hopefully this game both refines the mechanics and tells a more compelling story than the first.
