After the long awaited delay due to the closed beta, Mirror's Edge Catalyst finally has a launch trailer, even though the game is not out for another few weeks away; it shows the reason to why Faith runs. The city of Glass is full of places to run. Faith Connor's has been recently released from a lockup. In the trailer it shows a little about her back story and what is at stake. There is not much in the trailer that we already can tell. Faith gets released out of the lockup, reconnects with her fellow runners, gets into a difficult situation, discovers important things about her past. Looking at the trailer; the City of Glass looks rather stunning don't you think?

More open world.

EA wanted to re-do the entire game now with the next generation consoles out in the market. The original Mirror's Edge still had the parkour gameplay but felt somewhat linear. So it was back to the drawing board and made the reboot more open world.
