PC System Analysis For Mirrors Edge 2: Catalyst Requirements
Mirrors Edge 2 or Mirrors Edge Catalyst will use the modified Frostbite 3 game engine and provide a beautiful vista by which the player can travel around. High performance PCs will be required to reach top level graphics settings as the fast paced 1st person environments move across the players monitor. We expect Mirrors Edge: Catalyst to require a mid to high range PC, with a Intel i5 or AMD FX-8300 processor and a GTX 970 or R9 390 GPU to reach 60 FPS at 1080P on high graphics settings. their are certainly options to lower the graphics settings to help older hardware to be able to run Catalyst.
