Game Releases in SA this Week — Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Sherlock Holmes

Mirrors Edge Catalyst

We take a look at what games are hitting local stores and online retailers this week.

If you’re looking to spark up a free-running revolution or solve some murderous conundrums, this week’s game releases will deliver on all those things, and a little more.

Here are our picks for the games releasing 6-10 June 2016:

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Release date: 9 June 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

2008’s parkour-inspired Mirror’s Edge delivered a unique and visually spectacular title that was critically-praised for its original gameplay mechanics and design. The long-overdue sequel, simply known as Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, sees the return of the heroine Faith and her free-running antics as she tries to topple an oppressive government and uncover a shocking secret. In all the gameplay footage we’ve seen so far, Catalyst is looking fluid, fast, and absolutely gorgeous, running on the Frostbite 3 engine (Battlefield 4). The game will be a lot bigger than the first, and there’ll be some new moves and tricks for gamers to traverse with when it launches this week.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter

Release date: 9 June 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Focusing on a different version of the famed Arthur Conan Doyle character, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter gameplay is similar to that of its predecessor – Crimes & Punishments – you’re exploring crime scenes and finding clues. As you collect clues and information, you will be able to connect them together in an attempt to solve the crimes and make some difficult choices.

Your choices unfold across four new cases and a fifth meta-mystery that spans the entire game. Details from your four core cases will contribute to this grand ongoing investigation, providing an additional layer of plot progression.
