Mirror’s Edge Fans is 6!

Hi everyone, today, our site turned 6! I can’t believe it’s already been that much time since I started the whole thing :)
I’d like to say thank you to all the people who helped me develop the community and the site, and thank you to all the visitors who come on this site (and leave cool comments), I hope there will be more and more people reading Mirror’s Edge Fans in the future!
About the site: this past year, it has changed a lot with a new design, lots of new content and a presence on several famous social networks.

The last few weeks have been quite calm, simply because there’s nothing new about Mirror’s Edge, but rest assured that I’m not giving up, far from it! I will keep developping Mirror’s Edge Fans and talk about the new game when DICE/EA releases some info, so stay tuned and follow us on social networks (navigation menu -> Community).

Thank you!


A few words about the new Mirror’s Edge

CVG has interviewed Karl Magnus Troedsson who is DICE’s general manager to talk about the games they showcased at E3 this year. Of course, Mirror’s Edge is one of these games, so there has been a few words about it, really nothing big so here’s a copy-paste of the ME part of the interview:

Last year [EA Studios exec VP] Patrick Söderlund told us the sequel would be ‘more action adventure’ than the original…

What I can say is that if the last game focussed on first-person movement, it was definitely shown in the movie here that the DICE team will be focussing on first-person combat as well, to really nail and refine that. But I don’t want to go into more detail on what the actual game is.
We did something different at the show this year and showed a lot of work in progress. If you actually go frame-by-frame through the movie you’ll see there are missing floors and textures etc. We just decided to show something in progress, because it’s not the environment that’s most important, it’s the movement or the message of what we’re doing.
Fans of the game will just have to wait and see until we talk more about the actual game is and the vital mechanics of it. We’ve shown the combat and movement now, but there’s so much more to talk about. What I can say is, this is not just going to be the same game as the last one. We’re building Faith for a new generation.
I sense there is some risk associated with the new directions the sequel is taking – EA has also said it’s an open-world game now. Does that mean you have to be extra careful in how you reveal those new directions to the public?

We have an extreme attention to detail and that goes into everything; not just the game but how we show them and when. So yes, there’s a lot going into this in terms of what we show and when we do it. Not everyone was comfortable at the beginning with showing work in progress stuff, but then that changed.
EA as a whole is definitely committed to new IP. I know we sometimes get some flack that we’re not doing that, but it’s actually to the contrary. Among the games that we announced at E3 there are some new, cool things. Is Mirror’s Edge a new IP? No, but it’s been such a long time that you could almost consider it as one.
There are a lot of new, cool games coming and it’s definitely something that you need to do for the industry. I think it’s cool to see that new IP can be introduced in different ways today; you can start with a one-man team and grow, or the other way where you have the big teams bringing something grandiose to market.
Of course the risk associated with the latter is much, much higher, but then of course the reward can be much bigger as well if you succeed.

So if you’ve seen the E3 2013 trailer and the E3 2014 dev diary, nothing new under the sun.


Update: Submit your videos!

A few days ago, I was asking if anyone would like to work with me on some speedrun videos for our brand new YouTube channel. I must admit, I wasn’t expecting many replies, but surprisingly, people started contacting me by email or via Facebook and even YouTube to tell me that they would like to share some of their videos with us!
At first I declined most of the offers because I’m already working with two guys, but I felt sad about saying no to all these people.
So here’s what we’re gonna do: from now on, everyone can submit videos for our Mirror’s Edge Fans YouTube channel!
So if you want to see your video on our YT channel, please do as follow:
- upload your video (at least 720p) to Mega or any other file host
- send me an e-mail to adminATmirrorsedgefans.fr (with @ instead of ‘AT’)
- state the name/nickname you want me to use to credit you
- tell me what type of video it is (speedrun, time trial, etc) and in which chapter it takes place
- give me the link of the video you’ve just uploaded (no YouTube links please, I need the original footage)
- if you want me to make a link to your website or YT channel, please say so, I’d be happy to do it
Seems like a lot to do, but really that’s all I need to make your video part of our YouTube channel. When it’s done, I’ll send you a link and you’ll also find your video in one of our playlists!
I’m really glad to see that fans want to take part in the development of our community, thank you very much!
- don’t add music or voice to your videos, keep the original sound from the game
- send me videos of your best scores (if you don’t get any stars, it’s not very interesting)

Mirror’s Edge Fans now has a YouTube channel!

We are on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, DeviantArt and Flickr… but we’ve never been on YouTube! Well, we can’t say that anymore because I’m here to introduce Mirror’s Edge Fans’ YouTube channel!
By clicking this link you’ll have access to our videos. Only two of them for now because we are just starting, but don’t worry there will be plenty more. I’m working with two pro-runners (including this guy) to provide tons of running tips and tricks, speedruns, time trials and more.
So subscribe, take a look at the first two videos (runner bags guide part 1 and 2), and wait for more content!


Update: Two (small) pictures

I remember watching EA’s conference the other day and then seeing the official video on the Mirror’s Edge Youtube channel and something was definitely different. There are two parts in the video: the one about parkour and the one about Faith and in each version those parts are the other way around, but that’s not the issue. The problem is that the now official version of the video is missing an artwork that was shown at E3! I found it on Youtube by looking at other channels (people who recorded the actual conference) and could only find this version which is of pretty poor quality, but better than nothing. Hopefully we’ll have a wallpaper version soon.
When looking for the first image, I saw another one that I had never seen before: it’s the preview picture of the official video. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a high resolution version so here it is:
Of course, if you manage to find these pictures in high resolution, you’re more than welcome to share them with us :)
Update: A reader named Celine sent me a 720p version of the second picture, it’s not full HD yet, but better than before. Thank you Celine!


Looking for a speedrunner

Hi there! In order to create more interesting content for Mirror’s Edge Fans, I’m thinking about creating a YouTube channel. It would feature video guides for the first game and of course in the coming months/years, content about the new game. I know there are plenty of videos about Mirror’s Edge out there but having a channel just for our site would be a great thing.
I will start making guides for the runner bags (it should be rather easy), but I’m looking for someone (even several people, why not) who’s pretty good at speedrunning (because I’m not) and who could join me to add content to the channel, especially playthrough and video guidelines on how to be a good speedrunner.
So if you’re interested, please leave a comment or contact me using the dedicated page!
Thanks in advance :)
