New shooter from Battlefield developer

Battlefield developer Digital Illusions is gearing up to unveil a brand new first-person shooter called Mirror's Edge,we can reveal

We're told the title will appear on consoles only, PS3 and Xbox 360 to be precise, and that the developer has big plans to shake up the genre with it.

The only image we've seen from the game shows a young Asian female dressed like some kind of futuristic punk. And she's crouching holding a pistol down between her legs.

Weird, circuit-board-looking tattoos run down the outside of her right arm from the shoulder, and black bobbed hair frames a face that's covered in white foundation. Surrounding her right eye is crazy black make-up shaped in a star.

It reminds us of the movie La Femme Nikita in a way, and gives the impression of a futuristic setting.

In the past Digital Illusions has mentioned development of at least two unnamed games for PS3 and Xbox 360 - presumably one of these is Battlefield: Bad Company, and it now appears another is Mirror's Edge.

More on Mirror's Edge soon.
