Mirror's Edge 2 Focuses On FPS Combat
Filed under: MIRROR'S EDGE 2


If you can stretch your memory back to the original Mirror's Edge game (DICE), the first thing you'll probably think of is the clumsy combat; or more specifically, the hand-to-hand stuff. This is one of the aspects the developers are working hard to address and improve upon, according to DICE GM Karl Magnus Troedsson.

"What I can say is that if the last game focussed on first-person movement, it was definitely shown in the movie here that the DICE team will be focussing on first-person combat as well, to really nail and refine that," says Troedsson.

"We've shown the combat and movement now, but there's so much more to talk about. What I can say is, this is not just going to be the same game as the last one. We're building Faith for a new generation," he added.

We didn't seem much during the E3 2014, with DICE and EA providing a brief behind-the-scenes look on the development process and providing precious little apart from scarce, although nice-looking, concept art.

Gave up on the 1st game, I wasn't athletic enough. But this sounds like a step nay leap in the right direction.

"Building Faith for a new generation" = lots of guns and killing people.

Just glad it's being made... even if they're having to appease the drooling Call of Duty lowest common denominator a bit more in order to be commercially viable.

So long as the unique parkour element is still the forefront of the experience, it's a compromise I'll accept.

Well, as long as combat is still optional, I'm fine with that. I won't hold my breath tho.

Now I'm concerned it'll play like a run-of-the-mill shooter... Definitely going to have to wait for the reviews on this one now.
