DICE unveils a new Mirror's Edge

Will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC "when it's ready."

by

EA has unveiled a new MIrror's Edge at its E3 2013 press conference.

The free-running game is being developed by DICE, and an in-engine trailer shows the return of protagonist Faith alongside the game's distinctive art style.

"Ever since we introduced the world to Mirror’s Edge in 2008, we have been waiting for the right moment to bring Faith back," said senior producer Sara Jansson.

"The stake is in the ground. This new game will be a first-person action adventure starring Faith, and I am here to tell you that we will stay true to Mirror's Edge," added Jansson.

"As we embark on this new adventure, I ask that you be patient as we explore the best way to make Faith's return as memorable and impactful as the original game. We are still in early stages of development, and we don't want to rush anything. We want to make sure we create an experience that lives up to high expectations and fully takes advantage of the next generation of systems."

EA has said the game will be released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

DICE says the new Mirror's Edge will be released "when it's ready."

Excellent.

First Mirror's Edge wasn't perfect, but it was memorable.

That's more than I can say for most games this past gen.

Look at this article. It only has 79 comments. We won't see Mirror's Edge 3, that's for sure.

Take your time with both Battlefront 3 and Mirrors Edge 2 because if you fuck them up then we won't be happy. I have faith in you DICE, get it right.

I'm surprised that EA will publish another Mirror's Edge despite the fact the first game did not bring them the market they expected. Perhaps the franchise will never go mainstream but luckily we are now getting at least ONE sequel. I think if ME's regarded as a cult game, it's as much of a game as it's a cult classic.

EA wants to take their time and do the game right, sounds like the company is finally ready to commit to quality games instead of quantity sales.
Unless of course this is a ruse and they're just added online multiplayer and day one DLC

Take your time? You do that, and don't you dare release the game until you are sure that you have an unforgettable masterpiece.

Between this, and the announcement of a new Star Wars Battlefront game, I'm excited and sad at the same time. It's unlikely I'll pick up either the XB1 or PS4. By the time these games are released, my PC, built in 2008, won't be able to run them smoothly. That only leaves the Wii U for me, which EA is actively boycotting. Nintendo, Mr. Iwata, you better try your best to get EA back on board, without compromising your own integrity.

I'm speechless right now, Mirrors Edge 2, Battlefront 3, and Battlefield 4. I can hardly contain myself.

@swantn5 Rumour is, this time its a prequel and about how faith became a runner. but in the trailer i think she looks older with the longer hair and all

@Ripper_TV Give it time. Lets hope that EA and DICE market the shit out of this game because its what the first one deserved.

@NeverMore0 do eeeeeeet ;D gotta warn you though, there is a lot of trial and error in this game :P

@kamikazeespleen ....or just let it be a niche game without 5 million unit expectations.

Because if it sells TOO well, they'll make it into a shooter to reach the mass market.

@PixelAddict @kamikazeespleen They wont make it into a shooter. DICE must know better than that since 95% of people didnt bother to use the guns. I don't mind some sort of combat but it should be kept to a minimum.
