[Update 1] New video and closed beta!

We’ve been waiting for news related to Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for a while once again and the game will be release in a little less than four months so it’s time for EA/DICE to show us more of the game with a brand new video!

Something else came up: if you want to be one of the first people to try the game at home, your can register for the closed beta on PC, PS4 or Xbox One via this page!
Update 1:
Okay so now that we’ve all seen the video, let me just say this: WOW! In this story trailer we learn a more about Faith and see a lot more of the City of Glass, which looks amazing! I’ll have to watch it again several times to grasp all the details but overall it’s pretty awesome!
The official Mirror’s Edge website now has a “characters” section, obviously starting with details about Faith, with a new visual. Click here to read.

New info this week

Hi there, sorry for the lack of news last week but I wasn’t home. The good thing is that this week will be way more interesting and you know why? Because EA/Dice has started teasing some news on Twitter yesterday: “Faith is returning. Stay alert this week.
Hopefully we will see news screenshots and info and perhaps a trailer… Not much to do except wait and check the social networks frequently!
In other news, Dark Horse has published a two-page preview (next time it’ll be one page haha) of Mirror’s Edge Exordium’s sixth and last chapter that will be released on February 10, check this out:

There’s also been a new interview of Design Director Erik Odeldahl by Prankster101. There are questions about sexual discrimination in games, gameplay issues and some seemingly annoying questions about budget and how big games like Battlefield 4 and Star Wars Battlefront affected the developpment of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst at DICE.


Mirror’s Edge in Dying Light

The wait for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is not over yet, but fans of the first game are becoming less and less patient as the release date gets closer. In the meantime, they get creative!
In December 2015, someone named Elimina has started sharing a work in progress version of his new mod (map) for Dying Light. If you don’t know this game, it’s a mix of parkour FPS and zombie shooting, pretty fun. Elimina is trying to re-create the very first level of Mirror’s Edge (The Edge) in Dying Light and it looks like he’s doing a pretty good job!
The map is available on the Steam Workshop so you can try it out. Obviously there’s still a lot of work to do but for a pre-alpha version, it looks rather nice!
Here are a few screenshots:

Digital sculpting discussion

Hello there, it’s been a while, I hope you’ve been doing okay! Just before Christmas, EA/Dice publishes a new article on the official Mirror’s Edge website. The subject is digital sculpting. If you’re wondering what this means, check out some of these videos.
So in this article, DICE artists are comparing their digital work with actual sculpting (with rocks and tools) and talking about the various techniques they use in their profession. It’s interesting, especially for people who would like to work in the video game industry as character artists. You will see that even for digital work, you will need to master a lot of classical techniques.
There are also a few words about animation.
I’ll let you read this article for more info!
Oh and Merry Christmas!


Faith seen by Amie Lynn

If you like video games and other geek stuff, you probably are familiar with cosplay which is a great way for fans to show their appreciation to video games creators!
Obviously, Mirror’s Edge has not been left out by cosplayers (check out our DeviantArt group with plenty of fan arts and cosplays) and the latest article on the official Mirror’s Edge website features a very dedicated cosplayer named Amie Lynn. She shares several tips and details about her own Faith costume which honestly looks great.
I’ll let you read the article and enjoy the photos, just click here!

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst in Little Big Planet 3

If you live in Honk Kong or in Denmark (if “dk” stands for Denmark), then yes, you can play as Faith, Noah and other characters from Mirror’s Edge Catalyst in Little Big Planet 3 on PS3 and PS4 for about $5 or $6. I guess the US and european versions will come soon.
Here’s the exact content as advertised by PlaySation:

• Give Sackgirl® the iconic eye tattoo and red glove with this Faith costume.
• Sackboy® has never looked cooler than with Noah’s leather jacket.
• With a crisp white long coat and earpiece Sackgirl® can look just like Kruger’s Bodyguard.
• Gear up Sackboy® with the Enforcer’s space-age armour costume.
• Have Sackboy® traverse Bunkum dressed in the armour suit of a Sentinel.

And here are the links to the PlayStation Store : for Hong Kong and for Denmark (I guess).


Animations in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

EA/DICE has published yet another “Makers of MEC” article focusing this time on the game’s animations.
Character Animator Emil Nilsson tells us about his work on Catalyst: it involves animation creation and motion capture footage tweaking (because it’s never perfect).
Animating for an FPS game with so many Parkour movements really is a challenge for many reasons, including motion sickness. Trying to avoid this effect is rather tricky but they manage to get good results.
Emil Nilsson also talks about combat, which will be way more developped in Catalyst than it was in the first game, even with some third person action.
We don’t really learn anything new in this interview but it’s interesting anyway, I’ll let you read it by yourself (link above).
