Mirror's Edge: Catalyst guide

Walkthroughs to each main mission and their hidden collectibles detailed.

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst arrives eight years after the original game, seeing the return of DICE's fan-favourite first-person parkour adventure to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Instead of a sequel, this is a reboot of the 2008 original, covering Faith's origin story as she emerges from prison to take down the powerful KrugerSec corporation that's ruling the dystopian city of Glass.

Alongside a new take on narrative, the game itself takes place within an open-world, with story missions as well as side-objectives, collectibles and time-trial Dashes populating the city. Meanwhile, players can create custom Dashes and geocache-style Beats to challenge others with online.

Below we present a guide to Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, with walkthroughs to each of the game's main missions and the locations of their easy-to-miss collectibles along the way, as well as guides to every side mission, Dash and Gridnode.

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst - Performance Analysis
Final console code sees substantial improvements over the beta.

Note that each of the game's main missions unlock in a linear order, indicated by a red diamond on the game's map. While you're free to take a break and explore the city for distractions, playing through the game's missions will unlock the other districts and populate the world with additional side-content. It's also the fastest way to gain experience, giving Faith valuable movement upgrades to make exploring the city of Glass much easier.
