Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Combat Gameplay
Electronic Arts has posted a pair of new gameplay videos for the upcoming Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The new videos specifically showcase main character Faith’s fluid, free-running movement abilities and some of her combat maneuvers.
Faith also has some new moves this time around. One of these is called “Shift”; it provides a short burst of acceleration in any direction. Additionally, a move called Quickturn lets her make a 90 or 180 degree turn rapidly.
Faith will also have some items available to her, including a mag rope, which can latch on to specific surfaces in the world, “allowing for unique traversal and interaction opportunities.” The other is called a Disruptor; as its name suggests, this lets you disrupt, or even destroy, AI systems in the world.
Combat focuses on fluidity. Faith can take out a number of enemies without ever losing speed. Her two attack types, according to the site, are called Focus and Flow, with the former building up to make it harder for enemies to land a hit and eventually unleash Flow, which comes with upgraded skills.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24.
Check out the Trailer:
“In Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Faith Connors is a self-assured thrill-seeker and one of the best Runners in the city of Glass. But when she crosses paths with the evil Gabriel Kruger and the city’s oppressive Conglomerate, Faith finds herself running for something far more important.”
