Mirror’s Edge 2 is a very faithful sequel, in that it focuses on Faith, the protagonist: how she moves, her physicality and freedom of movement, and most importantly, her running and parkour skills.
It’s very focused on parkour movement, and EA have worked closely with parkour artists to refine the exploration and traversal aspects of the game. Obviously, this leads into many different approaches, as shown in the new conceptual gameplay video, which can be shown below.
The combat is all about Faith’s efficiency – she is a projectile, and used as such. That means you won’t be seeing lazy use of guns as in the first game, which should lead to more tactical approaches to encounters.
Naturally, the style remains clean, with solid white environments and red to guide, with Faith being a stark opposite of the conformist society she runs and fights in.
