EA Looking For A Mirror's Edge Trilogy
You ain't nothin' in this world unless you're worthy of a sequel. EA clearly has high hopes for their potentially innovative next-gen project, Mirror's Edge, and Senior Producer Owen O'Brien recently confirmed it's already slated to be a trilogy.
According to a recent video interview with AusGamers at the Tokyo Game Show this month, O'Brien mentioned that the first two games will focus entirely on Faith, the main character. Here's his full reply when asked about a sequel:
"The story we're telling at the moment is kind of a trilogy - a three-story arch - but I think the world we've created with the city and the culture and the environment is almost as interesting or more interesting than any one individual story so, Faith is kind of defined by her relationship with the city and it's that how she reacts to the city and how the city has molded her is what's interesting. I think there's a lot of scope to take the story in different directions and maybe tell somebody else's story but, certainly for these first couple of games it's all about Faith and it's all about her experiences in the world."
O'Brien also confirmed the possibility of a level editor for Mirror's Edge 2, which is good news for all you customization buffs out there. For more information on the original title, which is due out November 11, check out our PS3 Videos (we've got a couple trailers for ya). This is one of the most promising games of the year, so we're not disappointed at all to hear about sequels.
