Some early details emerged for the upcoming, parkour-inspired sequel to Mirror's Edge during the Electronic Arts press conference during E3 2014. In a montage of concept art, early gameplay, and interviews, the game’s developers hinted at some of the game changes we can expect in the next game. Among the quotes, they noted they’re "redefining the role of the runners to allow for more varied gameplay" and how they’re "bringing Faith to a new generation."

In the footage shown, Faith sprinted through a spartan, urban environment, moving up and over obstacles in a way similar to its previous installment. The concept art showed a slightly older faith, complete with her iconic gloves and tattoos.

In the original Mirror’s Edge review, GameSpot’s own Kevin VanOrd had a mixed reaction to the game, noting "Mirror's Edge offers occasional thrills, provided that you can look past some awkward stumbles."
