The first gameplay footage from Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is finally out, courtesy of EA and DICE on the occasion of Gamescom 2015.

It’s looking good. The world looks familiar, stark white with occasional bursts of saturated color, all lit with that Frostbite 3 new-gen hotness. We also see a lot more of Faith, the main protagonist, than we did in the original game. Not sure if those are cut ins for the sake of the gameplay trailer or if that’s what the flow of the game will be like.

In this first Mirror’s Edge Catalyst gameplay trailer, experience the moment where Faith begins her rise from a carefree runner to the hero the city needs. Playing in first person allows players to feel her fluid movement, combat and power.

At the beginning of the game, Faith is released from juvenile detention, and her long-time mentor, Noah, has welcomed her back to the Runner’s lair. He now trusts Faith enough to give her a true Runner’s job. She is tasked to break into the Elysium building in the Downtown district to find a terminal where she can get access to important information. However, things don’t go as planned as Gabriel Kruger makes an unannounced visit to the facility…

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is coming out Febraruary 23, 2016 for PS4, XBOX One and PC via Origin.

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
