Mirror’s Edge Catalyst gameplay videos showcase combat and movement
EA and DICE have issued not one but two new videos for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, giving us a look at gameplay from the upcoming first-person movement-based action game.
First off, this time around, Faith uses momentum to gain speed and jump from roof to roof or slide through tight spaces; using zip lines help gain speed fast, while the addition of the new Shift move provides some brief acceleration and Quickturn can be employed to make sharp turns (90 or 180 degree). Gadgets like the Mag Rope also let the main character latch onto specific points and traverse the city of Glass.
The Disruptor is an upgrade to Faith’s glove which allows her to destroy KrugerSec and AI systems, and while she doesn’t carry a gun, her martial arts skill lets the player use the character’s momentum to quickly and efficiently takedown enemies with light and heavy attacks. Constant movement builds Focus which prevents enemies from striking Faith, and one she is completely focused, she can perform some powerful attacks.
