Mirror's Edge Catalyst Is Free Roaming With No Levels

Well then! That’s certainly a pleasant surprise. Electronic Arts had said they’d show off a little Mirror’s Edge Catalyst gameplay during their E3 show, but I’d mostly expected better combat, a faster pace, and a cleaner flow to everything. The revelation that the game’s set in an open world with no levels or loading was something else is… well, that’s just blimming splendid, isn’t it? EA also announced the release date: February 23rd, 2016. Here’s the E3 trailer:

They’ve also boshed stuff up on the website to explain more about the game. Here, this post has some stuff about it being Faith’s origin story, which is a bit of a boring tack but hey ho. More interesting is talk of movement and combat and Faith’s growing skill and new gadgets letting her reach more of the city as the game progresses. Wait, is it a Metroidvania? Faith doesn’t use guns either, which is a welcome change. Lastly, look, this here says that the open world is filled with things like races and environmental puzzles.

I’m burned out on Ubisoft’s style of sandbox world (Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed and Watch_Dogs and), but sure, I’ll let EA get my hopes up for first-person parkour. Please don’t flipkick my heart, DICE.
