It's official: a sequel to Mirror's Edge is on the way. The game is in the "early stages of development" at DICE's Stockholm studio, and you can get a brief glimpse of in-engine footage in the teaser trailer below.
Oh Faith, how I've missed you. The parkouring protagonist gets inked in between snippets of sprinting and combat, and I love the flying armbar-style takedown at the end. It seems players will have new moves at their disposal—or, rather, old tricks. Mirror's Edge 2 will explore Faith's backstory.
The game is being built using DICE's Frostbite engine tech, and it promises a "city with an unprecedented level of freedom of action and movement." The visuals have the stark, stylized beauty of the original with an added layer of next-gen shine. Fittingly, Mirror's Edge 2 is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in addition to the PC. There's no word on a release timeframe, though.
As a fan of the original, I'm happy to see Mirror's Edge making a return. I revisit the game every so often, and I still enjoy it despite the frustrating combat. Hopefully, DICE can better integrate fighting with free-running in the
