Faith

I just downloaded the latest trailer for the upcoming game Mirror’s Edge, by the Swedish company DICE, from PlayStation Network.

First of all, this game looks great! I’ve seen stills from the game in a magazine and thought the concept looked cool, but the trailer really made an impression on me. I find the visual esthetics very appealing and they chose great music to set the mood in the trailer.

From the stills I had seen earlier I thought that the protagonist was a guy (which I found a bit boring), but now they show the character you’re playing: the runner Faith. She looks so cool! I’m a sucker for strong female characters and, for me, playing Faith makes the game much more appealing.

I made a PSP version of the trailer that you can check out if you have a PSP or if you just want a high quality trailer with a small file size. If you have a PS3 you can check out the HD trailer at PSN.

The game is expected to be released in November on PS3, 360 and PC. I’m looking forward to the PS3 version.

This is DICE’s game description:

In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called runners carry sensitive information on foot via the rooftops and skyways. Usually the police leave them alone - they have bigger fish to fry - but now something has changed…

Play as Faith, the best and most agile of all runners, in an adrenaline-fuelled race to save her sister’s life as she unveils a bigger plot involving the whole city and the runners. Mirror’s Edge is an action-adventure game that revolutionizes the genre by introducing a full body experience with dynamic 1st person movement and combat, in an immersive modern-day universe and with a socially charged storyline.
