The E3 game expo is underway in Los Angeles, with the great and the good from the gaming world showing up to announce new games and what people will be getting excited about over the next year or so.

One of the more interesting games on the horizon is Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, the prequel to the original 2008 game. Set some years before the events of Mirror's Edge, Catalyst explores the origins of the series main character Faith and how she became a free-running courier/agent provocateur in a futuristic city ruled by a totalitarian regime. The big change is that whilst the original game was very short and quite linear, Catalyst will be set in an open world city with multiple missions, objectives and side-missions all going on at the same time.

Most encouraging is the news that the game will drop the risible gunplay from the original and focus more on environmental and unarmed combat. The game will be released on PS4, XB1 and PC on 23 February 2016.

Oh, Catalyst is a prequel? Thank you, I was so afraid it's a remake. Hopefully, it'll be a success so they can make a sequel to continue the story.
