EA has announced a launch date of February 23, 2016 for Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. (Hey, that’s the day before my birthday. Well happy early birthday to me!)

Catalyst tells the origin story of Faith, a young runner making a living on the rooftops of the city of Glass as a burglar, courier and spy until her carefree life skirting the authorities takes a sudden turn and she becomes the catalyst for change in the struggle against the oppressive Conglomerate and its KrugerSec security force.

This time around, the game will empower you with the feeling of being a real-life runner, taking place in an open-world city environment that will allow for true first-person free roaming parkour, from the streets to the rooftops, without any levels or loading screens.
