EA Presents Us With Mirror's Edge

Today EA revealed a new teaser trailer at the Sony PlayStation Day in London for a game titled Mirror's Edge made by Dice which sports 1st person Parkour mixed with gun fights.

The visuals are amazing mainly because they use vivid colours to make the scenery stand out. For those who question if it is in-game then you must think about it...The buildings obviously don't have insides which leaves plenty of poly's for the outside.

To watch the trailer go here:

HD: Link

I will keep my eye on this. I honestly hope it is made for the PC!

(I just hope the breathing isn't constant. I used a theory in my games coursework that stated the balance between realism and abstract. Although it is realistic I think it should be used sparingly.)

Look Ma! I can see my legs!


My friend pointed out that it looked like a cutscene and now that I think about it the line "All Footage is In-Game" could just mean all of it is being rendered real time in their engine.

Therefore what we are watching might not be gameplay as such but a script...Either way if they get it similar to this footage then I'll be happy!

(The bright colours make my blog look dull!)

Looks pretty good to me, saw this last night on Kotaku. It feels like a console title to me, much like Assassins Creed was.

Most likely but remember AC was remade for PC. I noticed the anti-aliasing wasn't perfect which suggests the trailer was filmed on a PS3 or 360 version.
