A trailer has finally been released for Mirrors Edge 2 after a years silence from EA headquarters.

Since the unveiling of the game at E3 2013, EA have been uncharacteristically quiet about the second Mirrors Edge, with this new trailer being the only glimpse we have of the new game play.

When the original game was launched in 2008, critics were quick to comment on the basic combat elements of the game, which they felt let down the sensational first person platform.

Jumping to 2014, with the release of the only trailer available for the game, there are rumours that main character faith will not be armed with a gun by default and that the original combat system will be replaced with a more slick one.

The trailer contains real game play footage, giving fans an idea of how the game will feel to play.

From the footage in the trailer, it seems that developers DICE have taken onboard the problems with the first game and have been working to make the second game better across all elements.

The game is said to have an open world level system and will have online features such as a ‘playground’ where players can interact with each other as well as co-op and competitive mode.

As for the combat system, the team have been working to make it much more complex and realistic for players.

Rumours speculate that main character Faith will be able to push, punch and kick enemies out of the way and jump over objects such as tables and railings as well as martial arts moves and combat combos.

The game is set to be released in 2016, which although is a long way off, you can appreciate how much work the team is obviously putting into the game in order to meet expectations and up the standards of game play for fans.
