The release date of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is getting closer and closer (still 5 months to wait but time flies so, 5 months is nothing), and EA/Dice keep telling us about the creation of this new game on the official website.
The latest article they have published is dedicated to the creation of our beloved Faith. Or, to be more precise, the update of Faith’s appearance. As they state in the article, we have discovered her new looks in the E3 2013 trailer and to be honest, not everyone is fond of this new look (by the way, tell me your opinion about that in the comment section).
In any case, this new post tells us how the design team gave Faith a fresh new look but always keeping in mind the basic “building blocks” of her appearance using some kind of very simplistic pixel art version of her.
They have also tried to give her the body of a real person without exaggerating the proportions but keeping in mind that Faith is a very athletic woman.
Then there are a few words about her clothes: the team tried to give her something modern and practical, looking at sportswear and prototypes.
Personally I don’t dislike Faith’s new look, I think they kept the idea of a strong but realistic female character and I can’t wait to live her new adventures in February!
