After much begging from fans, Mirror’s Edge 2 has finally been confirmed by EA in their final announcement of the day. Faith is back in the clinical clean dystopia from the first game, and it looks just as much as a rush as it ever was.
The totally in-game engine footage showed off all the usual hallmarks of the series – vaulting, sliding, punching and running – all with a very modern sheen that shouted ‘THIS IS NEXT GEN MIRROR’S EDGE’. Breaking glass and lighting effects added to the clean, white look that is so iconic of the original.
EA offered no date nor platform exclusivity information, so expect it on PC, but sometime in the not-this-year future. The trailer ended only with “Coming… when it’s ready”.
