Shot in Cambridge, building scrambler parkour veteran Neil Cointet runs, leaps and climbs dressed as Faith from DICE's Mirror's Edge. It's all recorded from a first-person perspective just like in the game.

Parkour specialists Ampisound are "massive fans" of Mirror's Edge and wanted a tribute to the DICE IP. They "got some plans for a second one" if this one does well.

Even the trademark glove of Faith is worn by Neil Cointet, with the shadow of his suspiciously all over the place like her as well. DICE is producing Mirror's Edge 2.

"We're massive fans of Mirror's Edge, and are always getting comments and comments saying, 'Wow this is like real life Mirrors Edge'," said Ampisound. "Well EA/DICE recently announced Mirrors Edge 2, and out of excitement we decided to put together this POV video! If it does well, we've got some plans for a second one!"

Mirror's Edge 2 is being developed as an open world sequel as DICE hand over the city to us.

As a person with a healthy fear of heights I can say that this was a bit scary on few occasions :).
