EA Reveal Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Collector’s Edition

For fans of Mirror’s Edge, the sequel has to be one of the most anticipated games of next year. While the name Mirror’s Edge Catalyst does not exactly blow the mind the new Collector’s Edition may have more success.

Announced today my eyes went straight to the 14” Adult Faith/Young Faith diorama, which looks beautifully made. This is just one part of the collection though, the full list includes:

  • Adult Faith/Young Faith diorama
  • Exclusive Steel book
  • Exclusive lithograph
  • Set of 10 concept pieces
  • Temporary logo tattoo
  • Temporary Faith arm tattoo
  • Storage box

At the price of $199.99 are you willing to put out the money for it?

The selected items that have been included in the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Collector’s Edition are focused on Faith, the main character. This relationship between player and character is important, as although the first game’s story wasn’t the most detailed the basic elements were there to help us to empathise with her dilemmas and struggles.

Looking at what built her into such a successful Runner, and one so ready to take risks, the game will focus on what made her the person she will become. Also importantly, is that the character is not messed with in terms of gameplay. If it worked in the first game, don’t break it in this one.

With this Collector’s Edition it is nice to see that the focus is on Faith, and while the temporary tattoos may not be the most impressive additions, at least there are no silly replica guns. This is hopefully a sign that gunplay is not something that will be made a focus in the game. This was the weakest part of Mirror’s Edge, and something that should not be forced into Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
