Mirror's Edge 2 announced (Update: it's a reboot) photo
Mirror's Edge 2 announced (Update: it's a reboot)
by Jim Sterling

[Update: This new Mirror's Edge will not be sequel, but a reboot. It'll re-tell Faith's origin and ... sigh. It's also coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.]

Yep, EA DICE confirmed it. It's happening. Finally confirmed. It looks like Mirror's Edge.

I mean ... do we need to say anything else?

[Editor's Note: Told you! We have some possible details on the game here.]

Possible Mirror's Edge 2 details photo
Possible Mirror's Edge 2 details
by Dale North

We won't say where these character details come from. But we're pretty sure they're from an upcoming EA game, Mirror's Edge 2. And if they're not, they're from a big franchise game from the same publisher. 

The details we have touch on a technology group called the Developers. There's some kind of struggle going on against the Enforcers. Details also hint at things like space stations and space ships, so we could be looking looking at a futuristic story here. 

As for the characters, we have profiles on four different ones, each with some kind of combat ability. Maybe we'll be seeing a four-player game? The character Asia is…well, Asian. She's an American in her 20's. She's cocky, competitive, thrill-seeking, and acrobatic. Of course, she'll handle firearms and will be skilled at martial arts. Sounds like a proper heroine, right? 

A younger character, Zack, is a street-smart skater kid that knows how to take care of himself, a graffiti artist. He's sort of a younger brother to Asia.  Melanie is older -- age 45 or so. She's proud and smart. She used to work for a group called the Developers on some technology, but she left after being disappointed with her work, and now lives as a small-time hacker. 

Finally, Vince is also in his 40's, and might be mixed race. He's a cool guy, a hacker, is acrobatic, and can use firearms.

Jimquisition: Innovation - Gaming's Snake Oil

There's nothing wrong with a game that innovates. There's everything wrong with a game that goes out of its way to innovate without reason. Like any tool, innovation is neither good nor bad, and it has its specific uses. How...

What we want in Mirror's Edge 2 photo
What we want in Mirror's Edge 2
by Jim Sterling

Electronic Arts has repeatedly assured fans that Mirror's Edge as a series will not die, that one day we'll get the sequel of our dreams. Nevertheless, folks remain skeptical that we'll ever see Mirror's Edge 2. The original game didn't perform spectacularly and had a few issues that kept the mainstream from paying attention.

Nevertheless, the game had a strong cult following, and fans continue to hope for a new installment.

What would such a game entail? What would we even want from Mirror's Edge 2? After much soul-searching and discussion with fans, I've drawn up a must-have list of all the things we could want in a sequel. If you're a real follower of Faith and her adventures, you're bound to agree.
