Electronic Artsthe very first footage of Mirror's Edge: Catalyst in action, and although it's a very brief little snippet of the game's smooth free-running action, it's enough to get fans of the original excited.
Rather than the strict lines of the, Catalyst will offer players the chance to explore a huge open cityscape, with plenty of places for you to mistime a jump and fall a few hundred metres to land with a splat on an unfortunate civilian's car bonnet.
Seriously though, the night-time city looks great here, and it's just begging to be explored. I have my concerns as to how the open levels will affect gameplay flow – it's surely hard to replicate the acrobatic rhythm of city-running without focused level design – but I can't deny I'm intrigued to see more.
We'll hopefully get the chance tomorrow, whenkicks off in earnest, and EA holds its annual press conference.
