Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’s City Looks Terribl-y Good

If there is one complaint I have about the original Mirror's Edge, aside from the "combat is terrible" refrain, is that I'd have liked to see the city explored more, almost as a character of its own. The story is set in an authoritarian dystopia, but we don't actually get to see much of it outside of the first cutscene of the game. There is…

‘Mirror’s Edge 2’ Is Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Not A Sequel

Announcements are usually supposed to clear things up, but the game we've blithely assumed would be called Mirror's Edge 2 is perhaps hazier than before. EA today announced that its actual name is Mirror's Edge Catalyst [official site] and no, it isn't a sequel. Seems they've done enough work back at the drawing board "re-evaluating every aspect of the game" that it's now "a new…

Have Faith: Mirror’s Edge 2 Slated For Early 2016

We still haven't seen Mirror's Edge 2 [official site]. Not a screenshot, not a snippet of gameplay, nowt. Still that prototype footage Electronic Arts were showing off last year did look jolly nice, with swift punchy kicky and plenty of nifty free-running. After years of muttering about rethinking and prototyping and reworking and going back to the drawing board, it seems the parkour 'em up…

A Little More Faith: Mirror’s Edge 2 E3 Trailer

Mirror's Edge 2 was revealed at last year's E3 with little more than a brief animation and a few bars of the game's lovely soundtrack. As part of EA's conference at E3 2014, they showed off more of the game. It was set amidst some buzzword-y waffle from the game's developers, and is still only concept footage for the game they hope to make, but…

Mere’s Edge: Rhianna Pratchett Not Writing Mirror’s Edge 2

Rhianna Pratchett's writerly quill has guided the words and deeds of many a game character, but that won't be the case with Faith in Mirror's Edge 2. Fresh off stints on the likes of Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite, and Beat Buddy, Pratchett is not reconvening with DICE and EA. She was apparently never even contacted. But perhaps it's for the better, as Pratchett wasn't particularly…

DICE Halting Future Projects Until Battlefield 4 Is Stable

Like Battlefield 3 before it, Battlefield 4's launch hasn't exactly been graceful. If our baseline metric for grace is a lithe, ethereally beautiful swan, then BF4 thus far has been said swan getting squashed into a writhing mass of meaty chunks by a thousand levolutions. Bugs, glitches, crashes - you name it, BF4 has grappled with it on PC and consoles. DICE, unsurprisingly, is aware…

Listen, Shut Up, DICE Are NOT A Battlefield Factory

As the decidedly not very good Medal Of Honor: WARFACEFIGHTER received its critical pannings, one refrain was repeated again and again: they're the games EA puts out on the year's DICE don't have a new Battlefield ready. That may well be true, but EA are now at pains to point out (not necessarily in reaction, I should say) that DICE are not "a Battlefield factory".…
