Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is set to release on May 26 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The long-awaited sequel will feature a completely overhauled combat system, engineered in such a way that players must prioritise fast-paced parkour mechanics to outsmart enemies.

Unlike its predecessor, Catalyst will include a fully-fledged open world for players to jump around in and explore.
