Two videos for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst have been released giving you a look at the game’s combat and movement.
According to the official website, players can build momentum to reach top speed and “do daring jumps between rooftops or stylish slides through tight spaces.” One of the moves Faith can pull off is Quickturn, which provides a “rapid” 180 or 90 degree turn.
The video above shows how to zip down wire lines, balance on ledges, run vertically and horizontally on any wall and use pipes to swing to other spaces and areas.
Faith can also use hi-tech hardware and gadgets such as the Mag Rope and Disruptor.
In combat, attack types range from fluid to heavy punches to force enemies off balance or to gain an advantage when stunned. Players can build up and maintain Focus by constantly moving. When in Focus, enemies can’t hit Faith, but losing Focus makes enemy attacks a greater threat to her health level.
When completely focused, Faith goes into a a Flow state which heightens awareness state of awareness which will allow various attacks “in new and more powerful ways” to be pulled off.
No matter what circumstances you find yourself in while playing as Faith, always use the environment to your advantage.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is set for a May 24 release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
