‘Mirror’s Edge’ parkour recreated in unbelievable real-life video

EA announced a next-gen sequel to parkour-influenced cult hit Mirror’s Edge at this year’s E3 conference, but didn’t show off much of the actual game. If you’re feeling optimistic, though, you might dare to hope that it’ll turn out something like this stunning video recorded from the perspective of UK parkour practitioner Neil Cointet.

Inspired by the original Mirror’s Edge, Cointet donned the garb of protagonist Faith and took to the rooftops of Cambridge for a head-spinning, death-defying two and a half minutes. After you’ve caught your breath, watch the video game’s debut trailer below to see just how uncanny Cointet’s recreation is.
