LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DICE, an award-winning studio of Electronic Arts Inc.

Mirror’s Edge was first introduced in 2008 and fans quickly elevated the game’s heroine “Faith” into a videogame icon.

The new Mirror’s Edge reboots the franchise for the next generation with advanced visuals and an all-new origin story for Faith. Powered by DICE’s proprietary Frostbite™ technology, the game will be heading to Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®4, and PC.

“We introduced Mirror’s Edge and Faith to gamers five years ago, and we’ve waited for the right moment to reunite them,” said Sara Jansson, Senior Producer, DICE. “Thanks to the Frostbite engine and a new generation of platforms, we are now able to deliver a richer world that players will be able to explore with a new level of freedom in both movement and action.”

Weird how they would just reboot it & call it "Mirrors Edge" again.

Where are the real ingame screens? Or is there a trailer i did not see?
Cause these may be in-engine but certainly not in-game(or heavily modifies bullshots).

EDIT: i did not read the link in the description XP
Looking great in motion :)

I hate that "hnng" thing people keep typing, internet memes or whatever it is, is silly when its gets abused, like a joke only fun for the first few times then it loses its thing.

I'm so bloody excited ! actually I've never been so excited for a game ..ever before

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (9 Hours ago)
