Faith is back and better then ever!

The Mirror’s Edge series follow the exploits and adventures a female runner named Faith, set in a dystopian near future where big brother is always watching. Even though the game is in first person, the main emphasis is on traveling on foot to and from locations using speed, flips, slides, rolls and momentum just like today’s free runners, this is mainly referred to as Parkour. Faith can also utilize kicks punches and other moves to fight against the police and other forces trying to stop her from her duties as a runner. Faith also has a special ability called Runner Vision, which will highlight certain aspects of the game world in bright colours like red, to help show the player how to move quickly through the games rooftop world called the City Of Glass.

The first and best of its kind!

The first game Mirror’s Edge is a must play title in my books and features some of the most interesting and refreshing gameplay of its time. Even though Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is the second game in the series it will be more of a pre-sequel as it takes place earlier in Faiths career as a runner. Rest assured it will be as fast paced and exciting as ever and I for one can’t wait to get back in to the world of Mirror’s Edge.
