Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Launches on February 24, 2016

EA and Dice have confirmed the release date for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.

The new reboot will launch across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 24, 2016. A new trailer for the game was also shown, which you can view above.

If you pre-order the game, you can get the “Combat Runner Kit” or the “Speed Runner Kit,” depending on where you pre-order. If you pre-order digitally, you will get both content packs.

Here’s a new synopsis for the game, via its official website:

  • Fluid Movement & Combat in First-Person – You don’t need a gun. Use your environment, your momentum and your physicality to fight oppression. (Read More)
  • Run Free in a Beautiful, Massive City –From the highest skyscrapers to the darkest tunnels, the city of Glass is yours to explore. There are no levels, no loading screens, just the freedom to choose what you want to do. (Read More)
  • Experience the Rise of Faith – From a careless young woman, to a heroine who opens the eyes of the city and becomes the catalyst for change. You are Faith, and this is her origin story. (Read More)

    I don’t have the official statement on hand, but it has been confirmed that Catalyst is a reboot of the series – definitely not a sequel. Supposedly, their goal with Catalyst was to ‘reinvent’ the series with different ideas such as an open world, more fluid gun combat (think parkour with guns) and some nonsense about appealing to a larger audience.

    As for SocJus involvement, the EA-DICE twitter account has tweeted multiple times about Sarkeesian holding talks and conferences at EA (or DICE, I can’t remember which) and praising Sarkeesian as a critic and academic (something to do with her winning a GDC award). There were rumours (read: unconfirmed) that Sarkeesian served as an advisor for the title, but there is no evidence to suggest that she was involved in any way with the project.

    My personal two cents on the game: it’s an EA reboot. Do not preorder, tread with caution regarding reviews and wait for actual player footage to make a decision. If it’s actually decent, then show your support for ME by buying it post-release.
