Mirror’s Edge gets the live-action parkour treatment, is awesome

Thursday, 5th September 2013 12:25 GMT By Dave Cook

Mirror’s Edge has been adapted into a first-person parkour stunt video by free-running troupe Ampisound. it’s pretty damn impressive too.

The clip features parkour athlete Neil Cointe dressed as DICE’s protagonist Faith, as he leaps around rooftops in Cambridge. Over on YouTube, Ampisound wrote, “We’re massive fans of Mirror’s Edge, and are always getting comments and comments saying ‘Wow this is like real life Mirrors Edge’. Well EA/DICE recently announced Mirrors Edge 2, and out of excitement we decided to put together this POV video! If it does well, we’ve got some plans for a second one.”

Would you like to see a follow-up to this? Let us know below.

    There are many pro female parkour athletes able to do this. Did we have to have a guy dressed like a female do this? Kind of felt creepy.
