Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – Faith may run again




George Michael sang it, you gotta have Faith. In this case it is all too true, for several reasons. Not so much because Faith Conners iconic protagonist from the first Mirror’s Edge, the action game from 2008 but mostly because the publisher Electronic Arts unexpectedly large group of fans of the game had to wait so long for a sequel. The fans had to have but trust that EA word would hold and would ever release a sequel. There were the inevitable rumors leading up to E3, and the relief was to establish great many gamers when EA announced during his press conference Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.

Faith is back in a new adventure. A new Mirror’s Edge, but if anything stood out during the press conference, it is how familiar the new game looks. Faith is again the leading role and that’s a good thing, because just as there are no Tomb Raider is conceivable without Lara Croft, Mirror’s Edge is not conceivable without Faith. In short: the game is again set in the fictional City of Glass, Faith is still as rebellious as in the previous game, she’s still running free and makes its money still transporting small packets of information on the high roofs of the city. Moreover, there is still a totalitarian regime where Faith does not like – and vice versa. There is still resistance to the regime, from a faction that advocates for democracy.

Icarus and Noah

Still, Catalyst is not a real sequel. Actually the opposite is the case; we see what went on before the first game. We see how the Faith dyed action heroine has become the wool. She is younger than in the first game, but already on the rooftop running courier. Before we were allowed to make the first steps in the game, we got from developer Digital Illusions CE presentation that we saw how Faith witness to the harshness of the regime in the city. Citizens are kicked up by the masked military police of the regime and locked the slightest reason. Faith is also a victim and is being put. Fortunately not for long. When she is released, she will be met by a peer that is full of bravado says he called Icarus and he has a message from one Noah. These Faith Noah wants to annex in the resistance against the government of the mighty Gabriel Kruger. Icarus also has a transmitter for Faith, which they can not only communicate with the leader of the Black November, but that they also go off the grid and therefore untraceable for the men of Kruger. If all is well, we see in the rest of the campaign the Faith, the catalyst is in the awareness of the residents of the City of Glass.
