Two new gameplay videos have just been released giving further insight into the movement and combat systems within Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
The first video focuses on movement and shows how Faith can navigate through the environment by running vertically or horizontally along any wall, using pipes to swing around corners and over gaps and by building momentum she can reach tops speeds that will allow her to do daring jumps between rooftops or sylish slides through tight spaces. There is also a new move called Quickturn that will allow Faith to do a rapid 90 or 180 degree turn. Add to this the use of gadgets with a Mag Rope and Disruptor and there is nowhere that Faith can’t go.
The next video shows combat with the game. Faith can use a mixture of light and heavy punches to force enemies off-balance or to allow her to gain an advantage when they’re stunned. As Faith fights she gains Focus, this is achieved by maintaining movement and action. While in Focus enemies cannot hit her and when fully focused Faith will enter a Flow state allowing her to dish out more powerful and new attacks.
