Over at the official Mirror’s Edge Catalyst website, EA and Dice have dropped a new Story section onto the webpage that provides some background info on the city and the people that Faith will encounter in the game. First up are several gorgeous screen grabs of the fame from the three Districts, Anchor, Downtown and The View. Below is the official site write up for each district along with the images showing them off.
The Anchor district is one of the most affluent areas in Glass, its many tall buildings standing as proud heralds of the powerful corporations based here. Full of the city’s most popular nightclubs, young citizens make frequent visits to “The Anchor” for nightlife and shopping.
One spectacular construction project within Anchor is the gigantic Bauble Mall. When finished, the Bauble will be the most opulent shopping center in Cascadia - a true monument to the success of the Conglomerate way of life.
Located in the very center of Glass, Downtown stands as the proud modernized center of the city. Among the busy and dense streets you’ll find a slew of fashionable boutiques and notable sights like the Elysium Corporation building - home to the world’s leading medical research professionals.
There have been reports of illegal activities in this area; with so called “Runners” roaming the rooftops. Citizens should not be alarmed however; the nuisance is being effectively dealt with by KrugerSec personnel.
A prosperous residential area dedicated to "upwardly mobile" citizens, Ocean Glass View, or “The View”, is by many considered to be the final step before getting invited to Sky City. If you’re looking to get away from the intensity of Downtown or The Anchor, The View is well worth a visit. Here you can walk along the seaside promenade, picnic, and perhaps visit The Marina. On free days it’s not uncommon to see families enjoying the beach while their children play in the surf.
In addition, there is info on the three factions Faith will encounter in the Runners, Conglomerate and Black November.
