Mirror’s Edge Catalyst | New details, Gameplay

  
Mirrors Edge Catalyst releases in May and it seems there is some new info and video as the release date slowly approaches.

The official website has updated with all sorts of video and details so please check it out if you are interested.

Here is information regarding the new gameplay mechanics related to the videos on Movement and Combat

“MOMENTUM

Build momentum to reach top speed and do daring jumps between rooftops or stylish slides through tight spaces. Use the new Shift move and get a short burst of acceleration in any direction. For a quick change of plan, use Quickturn for a rapid 180 or 90 degree turn.
TRAVERSAL

Hit top speed quickly zipping down wire lines. Carefully balance on a ledge and transition smoothly to hanging from it. Run vertically and horizontally on any wall and use pipes to swing over gaps or around corners.
GADGETS

Faith needs little less than her running skills, martial arts knowledge, and determination to fight the oppression smothering the citizens of Glass. But a few pieces of hi-tech hardware will help her to traverse the city.
MAG ROPE & DISRUPTOR

Mag Rope – Latches on to specific points in the world, allowing for unique traversal and interaction opportunities.

Disruptor – This upgrade of the tech in Faith’s glove lets you disrupt and destroy KrugerSec and AI systems.
COMBAT

You don’t need a gun. Use your environment, your momentum, and your physicality to fight oppression.
ATTACK TYPES

String together Faith’s fluid attacks when engaging with KrugerSEC or other enemies. Combine light and heavy punches to force enemies off balance or to gain an advantage when they’re stunned. Use your environment when fighting to build Focus, and dish out Swift attacks to fight without losing momentum.
FLOW AND FOCUS

Build up and maintain Focus by maintaining movement and action. When Faith has Focus enemies can’t hit her, but losing Focus makes enemy attacks a greater threat to your health level. Once Faith focuses completely, she enters into Flow, a state of awareness that allows you to attack in new and more powerful ways.”
