Launch trailer for Mirror's Edge: Catalyst shows smooth parkour action

You and Faith can meet up to gallivant over rooftops on June 7. Until then, have a launch trailer.


Serious question: is a launch trailer really a launch trailer when the game launch in question is 14+ days out?

To be fair, EA's launch trailer for Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is pretty snazzy. It sets up the story, which sees you, in the comfy running shoes of series protagonist Faith, running and jumping and fighting en route to a showdown with Catalyst's big bad, Gabriel Kruger, which is a great name for a bad guy.

Faith returns when Mirror's Edge: Catalyst launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 7. The game was originally going to launch today, but developer DICE asked for a two-week delay to sand a few rough corners following feedback from the beta.
