Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is an open-world action-adventure platform video game developed by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts in 2016 for PLayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. It is a reboot of 2008’s Mirror’s Edge and will revolve around Faith’s origin and her attempt to overthrow a totalitarian conglomerate of corporations who rule the city of Glass.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for Macbook and iMac is a first-person action-adventure game in which players take control of Faith Connors as she progresses through a futuristic city called Glass. Similar to the original Mirror’s Edge, players traverse the city using aspects of urban exploration and parkour movements to complete missions and evade enemies or knock them off of their feet. Players can also make use of environmental objects such as zip-lines and ledges, and equipment including Mag Rope and Disruptor to travel across buildings. When players mark an objective on their map, Faith’s runner vision is activated and some scenery items automatically highlight in red. These act as guides to lead players towards their objective. The use of levels and linear gameplay found in the first Mirror’s Edge has been replaced with an open-world, free-roaming environment in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for Macbook and iMac. This gives players more freedom in traversal, allowing for the use of multiple paths to reach one’s objective. In addition to the campaign’s mission, side activities such as time trials, races and environmental puzzles will be featured. DICE also promises that no loading screen will be included in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for Macbook and iMac, allowing for freedom to travel within all areas without loading delays. Additionally, items called Gridleaks can be found across the world that can be collected by players.
Combat mechanics of the game received an overhaul and a new combat system was developed as traversal is greatly emphasized in the game. Also, though only used sparingly in the previous game, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst for Macbook and iMac has removed the use of guns by the player altogether, focusing on Faith’s running and parkour movements and quick melee-style attacks to take down or evade her enemies. Faith enters focus mode while she is running. With sufficient focus Faith can evade bullets from enemies. According to Sara Jansson, the senior producer of the game, the combat and fighting featured will be an extension to the game’s movement instead of a separated set. When Faith is performing a finishing move, the game switches to a third-person perspective.
