EA and DICE recently released information about the story surrounding their upcoming title, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. On the game’s official website, details about Faith’s origin are revealed as players get a closer look into the inner workings of the city of Glass.
Glass, the the third largest city in Cascadia, is comprised of five million citizens spread across three districts: Anchor, Downtown, and The View, each with their own distinct look, personality, and inhabitants. Anchor is an affluent district, boasting an environment built for entertainment and shopping. Downtown is located in the heart of Glass, home to medical research professionals and Runners. The View is a residential area dedicated to society’s upper echelon, featuring leisurely activities down by the Marina.
While the city itself may be ruled by the Conglomerate (consisting of 13 corporations), two factions rein in the mix: the Runners and Black November. The Runners have decided not to be a part of the Conglomerate, living among the city’s roof tops voluntarily off the grid, and yet Corporate Houses secretly depend on them to carry out their schemes. Black November are staunch opposers of the Conglomerate, whose leader resorts to violent methods to get their message out.
Also detailed are the bios of protagonist Faith Connors, an extremely knowledgeable runner with a troubled past, and head of KrugerSec (aka hunter of Runners and Black November members), Gabriel Kruger.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst will be available on May 24 for Xbox One, PS4, and on Origin for PC. In case you missed the latest trailer released in February, here it is below. Give OnlySP a follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.
