Finally, after years of hoping and wishing, EA and DICE revealed a sequel to Mirror's Edge was on the way. Though it shares the same name as its predecessor, Mirror's Edge is a whole new game that will explore Faith's beginnings as a runner.
It's been five years since gamers were first introduced to Faith, and highly stylized future in which she lived. Now she's back, and looking better than ever thanks to the Frostbite 3 engine.
"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."
No release date was given, as Mirror's Edge is still in development, but the sequel's announcement has been an early highlight of E3 2013. We can only hope the wait to hit the rooftops again won't be too long.
Are you happy a new Mirror's Edge is on the way?
