EA DICE has shared some new details to explain to us what type of enemies we’ll be facing in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The most common enemy type is Guardians.
There job is to make sure Conglomerate policies are implemented and job performance remains high in the Glass City. This enemy type shouldn’t pose a problem for players but Protectors may.
Protectors can be a serious threat to Faith and won’t go down as easy as Guardians. They are found in groups and will work together to deal with problems like Faith.
EA DICE explained in a post:
KrugerSec has a class of units called Shock Protectors trained and ready to handle large groups or difficult employs or loCastes. Equipped with the Kinetic Pacifier, one or two can effectively corral large groups and force them to the ground.
Shock Protectors are tough and extremely resistant to direct attacks. Keep moving and use your momentum to attack while traversing the environment. If you get stuck on the ground, shift away from their attacks and counter with a kick from behind. If you’ve unlocked “Stun Advantage”, you can take advantage of a stunned or stumbling Shock Protector by shifting in close and delivering a few quick punches before breaking away to rebuild your speed and keep out of range.
Another type of enemy is called Enforcers who are trained in tactical positioning and high damage ranged combat. However, the toughest enemy type is Sentinel.
They are fast, tenacious, and quick to deliver punishment. When fighting a Sentinel, keep moving, do advanced traversal to build some distance, and attack from the air as much as possible to avoid being countered.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will release on May 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
