Mirror’s Edge Reboot Is Being Developed For New-Gen Crowd, Will Focus On First-Person Combat As Well

In a recent interview with CVG, DICE general manager “Karl Magnus Troedsson” has shared some new information about the upcoming reboot of Mirror’s Edge. According to Troedsson, the team is builting Faith – and Mirror’s Edge – for a new generation of gamers and that contrary to the first title, this one will also focus on first-person combat mechanics.

“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.”

I’m pretty sure that’s not what all Mirror’s Edge fans were hoping to hear. Still, have faith to Faith everyone as DICE may find the perfect balance between parkour and combat.

“Fans of the game will just have to wait and see until we talk more about the actual game is and the vital mechanics of it. 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.”
