Mirror’s Edge 2 will use Frostbite 2 engine

Written by David Stellmack
ea

It seems that the sequel is closer than we thought
As we recently told you, the possibility of Mirror’s Edge finally getting its sequel appears to be on much more solid footing with the news that we will see the combination of Mirror’s Edge 2 running on the Frostbite 2 engine. 

While EA has been hinting that DICE was apparently working on re-inventing the title so that the sequel would be more compelling and attract more attention (and in turn deliver more sales), so far Electronic Arts has had little to say other than they do expect the title to get a sequel in the future.

The first Mirror’s Edge, despite the innovation of the free-running title, did not seem to find a place with many games purchased, and sales were not what DICE or EA had hopped. The title did gain an exceptional large amount of hard core fans; however this didn’t yield the kinds of sales numbers that are necessary to sustain a franchise, but it was a good start.

Sources tell us that despite DICE’s lack of confirmation, a small team is already engaged in working on the project and with it powered by Frostbite 2, it could be quite a game indeed.

I've just started playing my copy of Mirror's Edge which I picked up at a budget price.

I'd been interested about it since I first heard of the ideas in the game, but with the time and money spent on story-driven franchises I was already loyal to, I just didn't want to pay top dollar to get into yet another game series.

When I saw it for sale on Steam, I was in the middle of a shopping spree and got it. That was ages ago, but I only just started playing now - and I'm liking it! (except for the lack of on-demand game saving). It's interesting and I'd like to follow-up on it.

So, sometimes a franchise can have a chance of making it if a lot of people pick up the first game as a neglected gem at a budget price, then jump on the bandwagon for sequels! :-)

Mirror's Edge uses PhysX.. wow, a few flags can move on the top of buildings. What a waste of time and money. Another EPIC Nvidia failure.

It doesn't stop Drac from buying their terrible products though.

glad to hear they are using the frostbite 2 engine, hopefully it will be a pc first title as well as bf3. the more developers that use this engine will only drive the competition to have to come out with better looking titles!!

I dont think it needs physix crap with frostbite engine or ?

First ME was pretty good already but had a lot improvement potential, hope they can make it very good now.

I think poorAMDfags would like to turn off physics in real life. :D Then you fags will learn that PhysX effects can be done on CPU. Even FrostBite 2 can't handle destruction.

The thing is that physix can be done on AMD GPUS without problems too, in a way its understandable that NV doesnt allow it but this is negative for all gamers since next year even somebody with NV card may buy AMD and cant use physix effect there...only the biggest fanboys can support physix.
