Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – Faith Will Be ‘More Mature’ in Origin Story

Mirror's Edge Remastered

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst protagonist Faith will be displayed in a ‘more mature’ manner than the first Mirror’s Edge game, says DICE.

According to senior concept artist Per Haagensen, the Faith’s personality in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will be displayed in a manner that make the audience curious about who she is as a person.

Catalyst is an origin story, and serves as a prequel to the original Mirror’s Edge, so it’s obvious why the developers want to captivate players with her personality. Haagensen adds that for Catalyst, the team wanted to make Faith seem ‘more mature’ than she did in the first game.

During the DICE Art Panel at National Museum in Stockholm, Haagensen stated:

“When I set out to sculpt her for the Key Art, aside from the realistic aspects of her appearance, more than anything it was to convey the pose with enough action, tension, and interest to make the audience curious about who this person is”.

“She also needs to appear more mature than in the first game, so there was some work on getting a focused look on her face, maybe even some concern about the situation she is in.”

It’s an interesting idea to make Faith more mature in a prequel, as you’d expect the opposite in the origin story.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will release in May 2016 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
