The gorgeous trailer of Mirror’s Edge

by Cory

I’d not heard of this game before. I post it mainly for the beautiful art direction — pristine white spaces accented by shapes of bold, vibrant color. Hopefully the game chiefly sticks to these sort of visuals, and doesn’t spend too much time in the murky dark green color palette we see a flash of in the trailer.

The player movement is remniscent of Assassin’s Creed, but in the first-person. The Wikipedia article includes a quote saying that, “principally, this is an action adventure. We’re not positioning this as a shooter – the focus isn’t on the gun, it’s on the person.”

Mirror’s Edge is developed by Digital Illusions CE, DICE, mostly known for the Battlefield Series, due out “Late 2008” on PS3, 360, and PC.
