News from last week

news_0047
 
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.

sdcc_mec
 
San Diego Comic Con has started today and with a comics and an artbook both published by Dark Horse, Mirror’s Edge will be there!
On Twitter they say that Mirror’s Edge Exordium (the comic book) will be revealed by Dark Horse on Friday at 4PM.
They have already published five pictures that show a glimpse of what it will look like and you know what? Celeste is back! From the images below, it’s pretty obvious that she will have an important role in this story.
Unfortunately, there’s no info about the artbook yet.

Mirror’s Edge cosplay contest

mec_cosplaycontest
 
With San Diego’s Comic Con, EA/Dice have put together a cosplay contest. The goal is quite simple, cosplay as Faith and submit your photo(s) on Twitter (@mirrorsedge) or if you’re going to Comic Con, swing by the Dark Horse booth and tell them you want to enter the contest.
The prize (for the 5 winners) is a Mirror’s Edge Catalyst lithograph signed by the development team, which is pretty cool!
 
If you’re cosplaying as Faith (or another runner), feel free to show us as well to @MirrorsEdgeFans, I’ll publish the best ones on our fan art/cosplay page (with your permission).
 
You’ll find more info about the contest here.
Good luck!

A Mirror’s Edge artbook

art_of_mirrorsedge_placeholder
 
I’ve just learned via Polygon that EA and Dark Horse will publish an artbook dedicated to Mirror’s Edge catalyst the same day the game will be available (February 23, 2016).
It really was missing when the first game came out and as an artbook enthusiast, I can’t wait to put my hands on this!
For your information, the above picture is just a placeholder, the actual cover has not yet been revealed.
Click here to pre-order this artbook on Amazon.com.
 
And in the meantime, if you like artbooks, check out my Tumblr where I review various books about video games, movies, mangas, artists, etc: Artbook Island.

HQ Trailer + PS4 Theme

news_0046
 
It’s been two weeks since EA’s E3 announcement and the only trailer version we had until now was the (rather poor quality) YouTube version. But not anymore! Since yesterday, Gamersyde provides a way better version, still 1080p but without the extreme YouTube compression, so it’s 500MB for two minutes, but it’s worth it!
Click here to download the trailer over at Gamersyde.
 
Another thing, apparently there’s a PS4 theme offered if you pre-order Mirror’s Edge Catalyst on the PlayStation Store. I can’t verify the info though because on the French version of the Store, there’s nothing about MEC and I can’t seem to access the US version of the Store so I’ll leave you with this video:
