E3 is next week, but the cat's out of the bag for a lot of games. For EA, the cat's out of the bag, over a heating unit, down a rail and across the next building, as Mirror's Edge: Catalyst has been confirmed. Dark Horse is offering a little Mirror's Edge action as well, publishing Mirror's Edge: Exordium as a prelude to Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. On September 9, fans will witness Faith’s transformation, from a careless young woman to the heroine who opens the eyes of the city.
“Set in a world as iconic as it is visually stunning, with one of the most compelling and unique protagonists in popular culture, Mirror’s Edge is tailor made for great comics,” said Dark Horse senior editor Dave Marshall. “It’s an awesome opportunity to be able to kick off our partnership with DICE with this series!”
Published this September in partnership with Electronic Arts and DICE, creators of the Mirror’s Edge franchise, Mirror’s Edge: Exordium will grant fans special insight into the origin of Faith, one of the most unique and celebrated heroines in video games. Written by Christofer Emgård, narrative director at DICE, with art by Mirror’s Edge in-house artists Emgård, Mattias Häggström, Robert Sammelin, Henrik Sahlström and Erik Persson, Mirror’s Edge: Exordium is the perfect introduction to the game’s lore.
