Faith-based: 2D Mirror's Edge trailer shows origin story


EA's marketing machine is ratcheting up its efforts on Mirror's Edge – how else will it hit those sales numbers? The latest salvo in its ongoing campaign is the above "story trailer" providing some beautifully animated background on Faith's outlaw-courier origin and the oppressive government she's avoiding by running around on rooftops.

It's no secret that we're a fan of these trailers; in fact, the only thing we can really take umbrage with here is this: they're making us pine for a "cel-shading" option in Mirror's Edge. C'mon, DICE – how hard could it be? Just click that "cel-shading" box on your game-making tool. Done!
