New Mirror’s Edge Game Announced; Trailer Inside [Update]

By Ishaan . June 10, 2013 . 2:03pm

Electronic Arts’ DICE studio is working on a new Mirror’s Edge game, slated for release “when it’s ready”. Faith will return as the game’s protagonist.



Update: The new Mirror’s Edge is early in development and is slated for release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will retell Faith’s origin story. EA say they don’t plan on rushing the game to release.


“The stake is in the ground,” says Mirror’s Edge senior producer Sara Jansson. “This new game will be a first-person action adventure starring Faith and I am here to tell you that we will stay true to Mirror’s Edge.”

  • YES! YES YES! I’m so happy, I could cry.

      I know Mirror’s Edge was pretty niche when it first came out. I still need to play the first one to see why people hold it to such a high pedestal.

        It was a great platforming game.It reminded me the classic Tomb Raider games from the ’90’s but of course with a different setting and in First Person.

  • AkuLord3

    See EA can do something awesome…just hope it doesn’t be a let-down. Please don’t be

  • DesmaX

    I have no words.

    Seems like EA is finally getting back on track

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Wonderful news, Im so glad Faith is Still Alive. Cant wait.

    • Prinnydoom

      Was that joke intentional?

  • Btw, for all the shit that John Ricitiello got while he was running EA… practically ALL of these games had to have been greenlit by him before he was voted out of the CEO chair.

    So EA is kind of thriving off of his decisions right now. Unfortunate that he didn’t get to stick around to reap the benefits of decisions that he made.

    • British_Otaku

      It’s true. It’s far too early for any of the announcements today to a result of John leaving, so at the most Star Wars Battlefront and other games could have a different micro transaction plan assuming that the backlash against EA over the last two years was more minimal.

      I wish him and the people involved in the decision making the best for at the least announcing projects we want and have been anticipating for ages.

    • Testsubject909

      It’s sadly something we see happen often. Long term plans have a variety of results, and often times, like say when dealing with Presidents, those results don’t come to fruition until someone else is in the seat of power to claim and reap the rewards… or the trouble.

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      Hopefully the investment is wise and people actually do buy this…

  • badmoogle

    OMG!!!Finally!!!I didn’t wanted to believe the rumours because i was afraid of being disappointed but it finally came…and just when i was ready to turn off EA’s presentation…

  • ChiffonCake

    Heh, I don’t particularily care for Mirror’s Edge (mostly because I haven’t played the first game yet, though I’m interested in doing so), but I know that a lot of people do, so this is great news! Also surprising, since it’s coming from EA, but yay!

    • badmoogle

      It’s the only game from EA that i care about,but to say i only “care about” would be a huge understatement.I LOVED the first game and IMO it was the best 3D platformer of the generation.No magnetic crap,and QTE BS this was as immersive as it gets.It’s only weak point was the shooting aspect but thankfully in this trailer Faith didn’t fired a single shot.
      If you like platforming games i think you should definitely try the first game! :)

    • Bacon_n_Lettuce

      Try it before you judge it. It’s one of those games that looks generic at first, but is actually quite a unique experience. You may be surprised.

  • Byas

    My body is so ready for this.

  • NightzeroAX

    Those lips…. mhmmmm….

  • Lavitz

    YES! I’m glad they still care about this game… hopefully it doesn’t take too long to come out

  • Toankun

    foams from mouth*

  • Prinnydoom

    Higurhsjujughnnggggggggg. Nope. Thought i had words to describe the feelings i have right now but i was wrong.

  • *Tears of joy* and I love her new look =^_^=

  • Testsubject909

    Ahem. I will repeat, not my exact wording, but my general statement that I have made in the OT.


  • FetusZero

    The only good news out of E3 so far, in my opinion. It was about time, too!

  • doubleO7

    Wow, left and right we have tons of fan-favorite franchises returning. First Killer Instinct, then Star Wars Battlefront, now Mirror’s Edge. Now lets see if Ubisoft talks about BG&E2…

  • Godman

    Wow! What a beautiful graphical jump

  • Shadowman

    YES! I love you Faith!

  • riceisnice

    Look at hour red her skin is after she got her tattoo.

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso

    my body is ready!

  • chroma816

    You don’t know how happy I am that this isn’t just an Xbox One exclusive.

    Looks better than the original, although I’ll miss the art style of the first.

    I wanted to play the original Mirror’s Edge, but the first person parkour really made my head spin.. I like this kind of action adventure game in 3rd person more, like Remember Me (just beat it and loved it! like Blade Runner/Total Recall/Butterfly Effect, Neo-Paris looks amazing, and the amazing soundtrack).. I wish I could give it another try, for some reason a sealed copy is crazy expensive now, should’ve picked up a copy when I had the chance.. wish Remember Me would have a sequel too (gonna give it another go in French :)

    • Firekitty

      I’m really sorry to hear you couldn’t plat the first one. I usually get really awful motion sickness from first-person games, but strangely enough, Mirror’s Edge didn’t bother me at all.

      Really, really hoping they don’t change or mess up whatever it was that made the original game stomachable for me.

      • Aoshi00

        yeah, I liked the premise and futuristic setting , but not very good w/ FPS or Metroid Prime (maybe it’s the plain white, red, & blue color here, not sure..), the only ones I’ve played are Bioshock maybe.. I just like to be see the character that I’m controlling on screen, otherwise it’s hard for me to see where I’m going :) wonder if it’s the same protagonist, she looks a lot prettier now (guess it’s just like Cole from Infamous or Desmond from AC looking different). It’s cool to see game w/ cool female leads, I liked Nilin from Remember Me a lot, very exotic.

  • Detrimont

    Good, i dont need to get an Xbox one to get it

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Faith looks even hotter, count me in.

  • puchinri

    WOOHOO! That’s fantastico! I’m sad that I’ll need a PS4 to play, but I’ll gladly buy it well before I get the console~!

  • Oni123

    Lol more game devs should have that at the end of there trailers “Coming …. when it’s ready” =)

  • Vash bane

    they even remixed the theme :D
