DICE On Mirror's Edge Sequel: "Nothing's Impossible"

Yeah, it's true; we've heard this before. EA has often said Mirror's Edge isn't dead. ...that rhymes, doesn't it?

But it's great to hear the developer say it. When visiting DICE's HQ in Stockholm, OXM UK received a few encouraging statements from Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Bach. After noticing all the Faith art decorating the studio, the journalist had to ask the obvious question. To which Bach replied:

"Nothing's impossible.

The only thing we can talk about and be open about is that we have not killed the franchise, and you can see that within these walls. We're still talking about it, and there's no closure on it.

The only thing that we have decided is that whatever we're doing in this office right now, when it comes to that we're not talking about it. The only thing I can say officially is that we definitely haven't killed the franchise. As you noticed, we still love it - we just need to find out how..."

We really want that sequel and we're hoping that after Battlefield 3 is out the door, EA will give DICE the green light. It's just one of those refreshing games that really captivated us, primarily because we understood the innate potential of the concept. Besides, the game itself was great fun; if you haven't played it, we strongly suggest giving it a try.

I liked the game but couldn't play it for long periods of time. Made my stomach feel queezy. Figured they'd be gunning away with a sequel by now though..

DICE is spread far too thin to be making another game in a failed franchise. They're main focus, as set out by EA, is to keep up their yearly fps releases.

I liked mirror but I felt it fell far short of its potential. It also aggravated me when things were clearly all set up to be awesome (Do A, B and C right in a row to feel like a badass) and then some little thing farked it up.

This game honestly had so much potential, so I'm hoping they can strike back hard with the 2nd one.

The things they need to do is really focus on the concept of the game. First person view parkour for SURVIVAL & OBJECTIVE COMPLETION. It's cool that you can grab weapons and such and use them against enemies. But attacking enemies should not become a requirement like they were doing near the end of the game.

Also...even though it's quite difficult considering how big the metropolis is, they should have definitely have different looking levels.

Next, get a better story. Something that captivates us and actually makes us running and jumping to find out what will happen next. Then it truly will be a thrilling masterpiece.

Lastly, make it a bit longer. The last one...including the E-surance like cutscenes (which I don't mind)...from start to finish the game was about 2 hours long. Come on now...at least push it up to 5 hours.

All the requests I have for DICE will be kind of frustrating to accomplish, but in the end they will have one hell of an awesome game.

And bring back "STILL ALIVE" as a theme song. Keep it!

Definitely want to see Mirror's Edge come back. It had a lot of promise, but ultimately fell short in execution. I'm sure that DICE can get around that though and make it incredible, especially with that engine of theirs.

This game was frustrating as hell.
Thinking back... If I hadn't tried for the platinum I'd probably still love it.

I hope they come out with a sequel as well. Although frustrating at times, this is one of the few games I played to completion. Oddly enough, either because of sheer patience, or just because I'm still used to the glitches and/or difficulty of old school games, I almost enjoyed the level of frustration. What can I say, I'm a glutton for punishment.

But hey, if DICE can streamline the game, run it with that FB 2.0 engine, then we should be good. Also, there was a bit more that could've been done in terms of variety, and yeah, not having to take out the armed guards with guns, being a free runner and all. The length of the game may not have been enough for some, but for someone who rarely gets to game on a regular basis, this game was almost perfect. I guess that's why I was able to beat it, lol.

Either way DICE, bring out Mirror's Edge 2 please!

according to the latest issue of OPM its already in development.
we definitely will see ME2, only question is when.
i just hope they dont change it too much, the way EA and DICE talk about it makes it sound like there trying to figure out a way to change it to bring in more fans.
dont change it for the love of god dont tamper with the gold!
what ever happened to the old saying if it aint broke dont fix it?

This is good news, I really enjoyed the first Mirror's Edge, as it was an interesting taste of something new. I'm hoping this pulls a Portal 2 and that the campaign is more fleshed-out, story-driven and a bit longer than its predecessor. Here's to hoping.
