Mirror's Edge: Catalyst Features Combat, But No Guns
Many were worried about how DICE might present the new Mirror's Edge vision.
Is it going full-on open-world? Will there be more of an emphasis on combat? Would it feel more like a third-person shooter?
Apparently, the answers to these questions are yes, yes, and no. As revealed during E3, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst will indeed be open-world (no levels, no loading times) and the gameplay demo showed off a bigger emphasis on first-person combat. However, not long after, senior producer Sara Jansson confirmed to Polygon that guns will not play any role at all:
"In Mirror's Edge Catalyst, you won't be using any guns at all. We've completely removed that aspect of the game. You can't even pick them up."
It's probably a good idea. The focus should indeed remain on free-running, even if they do have to put in more combat. I'm hoping they still retain the puzzle-solving adventure-style aspect as well but for now, we should be satisfied with the slick new look.
