[Update: Destructoid have recently updated their post stating that Mirror’s Edge 2 isn’t actually a sequel, it’s a re-boot which re-tells Faith’s origin. Looking back at the trailer (added above) it does kind-of give it away with various scenes of Faith getting her trademark tattoo’s applied for the first time..]
As EA closed the show they left us with a little surprise, something we’ve been asking for, for a few years now, that’s right… Mirror’s Edge 2!
Using an entirely new engine Mirror’s Edge 2 the 1 minute or so trailer showed of some footage made entirely from the in-game engine. The game seems to have kept a hold of the simplistic city environment but the characters have been given an entirely re-vamped look.
At the end of the trailer we were left “Coming… When it’s ready”. Sara Jansson, Senior Producer for Mirror’s Edge has this to say:
“As we embark on this new adventure, I ask that you be patient as we explore the best way to make Faith’s return as memorable and impactful as the original game. We are still in early stages of development and we don’t want to rush anything. We want to make sure we create an experience that lives up to high expectations and fully takes advantage of the next generation of systems.”
I’m over the moon with this announcement! What are your thoughts?
