Friday Spotlight: Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Mirror's Edge Catalyst
PC - Xbox One - PS4
Developer: EA Dice
Publisher: EA
Release Date: May 24th, 2016

The first Mirror's Edge was a unique title; a parkour filled adventure of speed and action as you leap from rooftop to rooftop. The character of Faith and world she inhabited was captivating, and a sequel can only improve the first experience.

Similar to the first game, expect plenty of building leaping, death defying jumps and moves to weave your way through the stages. This is assisted by Faith's runner vision, highlighting the objects that assist in her navigation.

Unlike the first game, the world is now open in comparison to the linear levels. Expect plenty of hidden items, side objectives, races, and challenges. DICE has even promised no load times once the initial game is set, which will provide an uninterrupted experience.

Combat has also received an overhaul. No use of guns will be utilized, instead focusing on Faith's melee expertise and quick movements. Multiplayer will feature leaderboards as well as synchronous multiplayer in which your actions will affect the world of another player.

There is so much potential with this title, and the details released thus far are already fantastic. The look is astounding, and an open beta registration just went live today. You can register here, but be sure to keep this on your radar.
