I have been away for about a week and now that I’m back, it’s time to get back to work: here’s what we missed:
First, Gamespot talked to narrative director Christofer Ermgard about the story in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and there are some interesting details to remember.
“We are doing something that is new; it’s different and separate from the first game,” Ermgard explained. “You will recognize maybe the names of some characters, but they will be different characters in this one. Sometimes we even have the name and the look, but the character, what they do is still different, so there are some carry-overs in terms of ideas.
Once again he insists on the fact that Catalyst is to be considered a completely different game from the first one, it would almost be a mistake to try comparing these two games. People who have never played Mirror’s Edge won’t have any problem playing Catalyst.
About Faith, Christofer Ermgard says they are trying a different approach, they’re really trying to dive deep in her story and her origins. In the first game, all the main events of Faith’s life had happened before the beginning of the story, but in Catalyst she will have to face difficult situations that will make her change as a person.
The comic book Mirror’s Edge Exordium will tell us more about Faith’s story with events leading up to the beginning of Catalyst. The first issue is still set for release on September 9th with an issue every month until the game’s release in Ferbruary 2016.
Senior Producer Sara Jansson has talked to xb1.co.uk about the world in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Nothing extraordinary here, she just says that the city won’t be entirely accessible from the beginning, instead you will have access to a small portion of Glass and more will be revealed throughout your progression in the story.
Broken Frontier has interviewed Robert Sammelin who is a concept artist at DICE and the artist behind the Mirror’s Edge Exordium comics. Nothing much about ME though but if you want to read the interview, click here.
To conclude, there’s word that Mirror’s Edge could become backwards compatible on Xbox One but nothing has been officially confirmed so we’ll just have to wait and see.
