Publisher/developer EA (DICE) Format PC, PS4, Xbox One Release TBC
A year on from the reveal of DICE’s Mirror’s Edge reboot and the studio’s still not ready to show much of its game. What we have seen, however, is early prototype footage, which suggests that Faith’s distinctive firstperson parkour and combat abilities are shaping up nicely. Faith has gained a few new abilities, such as grabbing poles to corner while wall-running, and her takedowns are as brutal as they are elegant. Of course, these were elements that DICE got pretty much spot on the first time round, its game instead let down by clunky storytelling, an archaic approach to boss fights and a lack of environmental variety. The development team promises to address all of these things in time, but right now all we have to go on is something that doesn’t look all that far from our initial glimpse of the first game back in 2008.
