Take a look at Mirror's Edge Catalyst's movement and combat in new videos

New, 24 comments

Faith is back and running smoother than ever

EA DICE shared new details and footage of two key facets of Mirror's Edge Catalyst on the game's website: movement and combat.

The short video for how movement in the game works, as seen above, shows off hero Faith running and jumping across a variety of areas. Most of the clip is seen from a first-person perspective, like the game itself.

Movement may look familiar to players of the first Mirror's Edge, but Faith comes with new moves in Catalyst, as explained on the website. The Shift ability allows her to quickly accelerate in any direction, for example; she also has upgraded tech to further aid traversal.

Combat, as glimpsed in the video above, similarly focuses on fluidity. Faith can take out a number of enemies without ever losing speed. Her two attack types, according to the site, are called Focus and Flow, with the former building up to make it harder for enemies to land a hit and eventually unleash Flow, which comes with upgraded skills.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst's combat system features a major difference from the earlier game: It won't feature gunplay.

The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on May 24, following a delay.
