Mirror’s Edge- E3

Mirror’s Edge- E3

When John Riccitiello became CEO of EA he took a chance with a new franchise, Mirror’s Edge is a hard game to sell even harder when its a new IP and while many continue to say that a first person platforming game can’t work, just as many say Mirror’s Edge was close to making it.

At E3 EA announced that a new Mirror’s Edge title was coming to next gen platforms, while at first it might look like Mirror’s Edge 2 is finally happening its not.

EA games announced that Mirror’s Edge will be coming to both the PS4 and Xbox One but this won’t be a sequel, instead its more like a reboot for the franchise. Yes, a reboot after one game.

This time we’ll look back in time at how Faith became a runner in the city, how the city became this beautifully clean dystopia. Mirror’s Edge will be an open world game, as well as a very different game than its predecessor while EA labels boss Patrick Söderlund was clear to say that the game will play differently he wants to be clear that it won’t become a shooter.

“Obviously as you saw in the trailer there are some things that will clearly remain the same. We’re not going to break what the game was good at. But in general, though, there are some changes, which are for the better I think.”

“The first game was a lot about running away from things,” he said. “And, even though you want to have sections with that, you also want Faith… she’s a powerful character and you want her to take control. You’ll see a little bit more of that in this game.

Again, we’re not going to turn this into a shooter. On the contrary, in fact. But we are going to evolve Faith and the story. Once we show more of this people will be genuinely excited. I am personally extremely excited about it.”
