The Frostbite-powered return of Faith.

Electronic Arts and DICE have announced an all-new Mirror’s Edge.

The game, which isn’t exactly titled Mirror’s Edge 2, will be powered by the Frostbite engine and be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC “when its ready.” It is a reboot of the series that tells an all-new origin story for Faith.

“We introduced Mirror’s Edge and Faith to gamers five years ago, and we’ve waited for the right moment to reunite them,” said Sara Jansson, Senior Producer, DICE. “Thanks to the Frostbite engine and a new generation of platforms, we are now able to deliver a richer world that players will be able to explore with a new level of freedom in both movement and action.”

See the debut trailer and a message from the game’s senior producer below. View the first screenshots and artwork at the gallery. Visit the game’s official website here.

Hi, my name is Sara Jansson, and I have the honor of working as Senior Producer for Mirror’s Edge.

Wow, it feels great to finally be able to type those words. Ever since we introduced the world to Mirror’s Edge in 2008, we have been waiting for the right moment to bring Faith back — and we know you have been waiting as well. We’re taking Mirror’s Edge to a new era of entertainment delivering unique gameplay only possible today with our newly developed Frostbite engine and the arrival of the next generation platforms. You can get a glimpse of what I’m talking about in the official Mirror’s Edge E3 Teaser Trailer above.

Like so many fans I fell in love with the original Mirror’s Edge. I think it’s because it did things in a brave new way from the first-person parkour inspired movement in a vertical environment to the unique art direction; all of this based in at stark dystopian setting that still feels too close for comfort. But perhaps the strongest element in Mirror’s Edge is its iconic heroine, Faith. In 2008, I was one of the millions of fans who connected with Faith. Today, I feel privileged to be leading the charge on a new Mirror’s Edge featuring one of gaming’s most inspiring and true heroines.

So there you have it. The stake is in the ground, 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.

As we embark on this new adventure, I ask that you be patient as we explore the best way to make Faith’s return as memorable and impactful as the original game. We are still in early stages of development and we don’t want to rush anything. We want to make sure we create an experience that lives up to high expectations and fully takes advantage of the next generation of systems.

Finally, I want to extend a sincere thank you to all of our fans. Every time you have asked us about the future of Faith, we have felt your support. Without you, the new Mirror’s Edge wouldn’t be happening.

    The girly (Faith) looked really nice, can’t wait to see more! And multiplatform again? PS4 it is then!

  • rainelee

    Sweet stuff!

  • Himiko

    Faith is as sexy as ever. <3

  • DarthBrian

    I ejaculated again. T_T

    • KingNigma

      I can’t seem to anymore :/

    • Locksus

      Same here. Time to reinstall ME !

        Male Enhancement?

      • dzeidzei

        You guys didn’t flog the dolphin before beginning to watch this conference?! Are you crazy? That’s like showing up with a loaded gun!

        • DarthBrian

          Of course I did. But I have reserves.

    This and Battlefront. I was ready for ME2, but BOTH!? Too much. E3 is off to a good start.

      I’m amazed that EA’s conference was good this time. Adding to your two titles, PvZ Garden Warfare looked amazing. Also “next gen platforms” for ME2, basically says “someone hasn’t finalized exclusitivity yet” thus, “when its ready”. Either way, Day 1 when its ready.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        I really want Garden Warfare, lol.

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          So, we’ll play together (first on Xbox One)?

  • Mike

    Seeing as a large chunk of the trailer was Faith getting tattooed, could this be a prequel?

  • KnifeAndFork

    Her face looks a little more attractive.

    I remember when Sankakucomplex had a guy that did a photoshop comparison of what he thought would be a better version….he made her Moe lol

    Definitely gonna give this a go :D

    Faith is back, fuck yea! I’m not losing hope for Bad Company 3. It’s probably the only modern military FPS franchise I’m interested in as its characters are hilarious and affable.

  • epy

    The leaked “truthfacts” have been all accurate so far.

      Let’s see Prince of Persia at Ubisoft next.

        Especially if its similar to the cel shaded one!

    • Bryce Blalex Douglas

      Part of it makes me happy (the leaks on games) but the other part makes me really sad (M$ leaks).

      Anywho, never played ME but ME2 looks pretty cool even though I’ve never been a fan of the first person experience (Skyrim kind of paved the way for change for me though).

  • bloodiOS

    I really want a remastered version of the first game for next-gen consoles now.

    • Elvick

      I know many would hate that… but I’d be down.

  • MrRobbyM

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSS. This, Witcher 3 and Dark Souls are the only games I’m excited for so far.

    • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

      Three games, just saying.

  • Elvick

    Praise be to Yevon. ;_;

    Not sure how I feel about how Faith looks. She looks more “sexy”. She looked perfect before (minus in the ugly e-surance cutscenes).

    Oh well, just don’t mess it up EA and you’ve got my money.

    OMFG!!!!!!!! YES x 9999999999999

    I’m so glad the art style is the same.

    • Rydak

      Same here, I think they made Faith look even better, too.
