Mirror’s Edge was something of a strange and unexpected game when it initially released in 2008. DICE had only been known for the Battlefield franchise before this and a move to a first-person platformer that focused almost exclusively on parkour might not have seemed like a wise decision. Yet, the game went on to receive plenty of acclaim from reviewers for its distinctive gameplay but also garnered criticism for a lackluster plot and short length. Despite all of this though, it had a dedicated cult following of fans who wanted to see a sequel, though EA seemed hesitant to move forward with any new entry into the series – that is until now with the release of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
There’s been some confusion in regards to Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. First, it was thought to be a sequel, then it was thought of as a prequel. Previously, the game was shelved for a bit while EA tried to fix Battlefield 4, and when it returned, it was made out as an origin story for the game’s protagonist, Faith. During a game demo at Gamescom with IGN, Design Director Erik Oeldahl gave a definitive answer that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is in fact a “reboot.”
