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.

EA's got balls coming out with this so casually. Let's see the game sell first then talk trilogy.

Lord of the Rings made a trilogy (the movies, I mean) out of the gate, and it was a blockbuster. If EA is gonna do that with a game, it better be a smash hit, or they are out a LOT of money.

They should take a Saints Row 2 approach to this, release it, see if anyone likes it, watch the sales, then announce any sequels.

What they should do is make a new SSX.

Yeah that's what they say now... when they're all anticipating the reviews, hype, etc. I mean, it might be a great game and all but I really can't see the sequal being any more entertaining than the first.

Don't really know how entertaining it would be to create your own levels either... I see this game as more story oriented than anything else. Creating your own level, to me, would just be repetitive, but who knows...

pretty much every game that gets enough prerelease hype has a sequel independent of sales. but then again, games with this much hype usually do well enough to support a sequel.

as for the level builder, its probably going to suck. Not many games use 3D as much as this game seems to (keyword seems). It would take a long time and a lot of testing to make levels that encompass going over, thru, under, and around buildings.

Overall, I have some serious doubts about this game, but I'm really excited about a first person action/adventure game.
