If you were wondering what the background of Mirror's Edge
was going to be then you should check out this video that illustrates the world you'll be playing in later this year. It is your semi-typical distopian future where the people have turned over most of their rights to the government. The constant monitoring of the populace (something that UK residents now deal with on a daily basis) leads to the rise of runners and that's where you come in. Personally I'm thinking the game has the potential to be one of the sleepers of the year.
