After endless speculation and secretly hoping, it's official: Mirror's Edge is coming back. The original adventure is far from your average first-person game--this is a franchise that zeroes in on the thrill of human mobility. As the nimble runner Faith, you sprint across futuristic rooftops, performing physically demanding feats of parkour while outrunning--or just straight-up beating down--armored bad guys. The thrill of climbing, jumping, sliding, barely surviving death-defying leaps; it all makes for an exhilarating high, no trigger-pulling necessary.
This new Mirror's Edge builds on much of what made the original so great, from traversal to combat and everything in between. So what can you expect from this sequel (which everyone will probably call Mirror's Edge 2 even though it doesn't technically have a name yet)? Read on to find out.
