Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Senior Producer Shares New Exciting Gameplay Details
PlayStation Access has released new video for Mirror's Edge Catalyst in which PlayStation Access's Hollie Bennett chats with Mirrors Edge Catalyst Senior Producer Sarah Jansson to discuss the new open world game .
Mirror's Edge Catalyst will offer players the chance to explore the entire city of glass
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst gives players the chance to experience the rise of Faith, a Runner, as she explores every corner of the city, and the tunnels that lie beneath. Mastering the environment, and using momentum to time combat, fight the oppression of the ruling elite, is the path to uncovering the dark secrets behind the city’s secrets. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst gives allows players to explore the entire city, while discovering a variety of new activities, like ‘Dash’, races from point A to B, environmental puzzles and story missions to complete at their own pace.
DICE has created a completely new combat system that relies solely on melee combat, as Senior Producer Sarah Jansson explains.
"Faith will fight, but she doesn't kill,"
"Now the fighting is more of an extension of the movement. It builds on the flow. It fits a lot better with the game mechanics. When Faith is in flow, when she stitches together move after move without failing and keeps her momentum going, she's actually invulnerable to bullets. That can keep her out of harm's way. It's only when she stops that she can get hurt."
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will be available on February 23, 2016, at retail and for digital download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Origin for PC.
