FPP action game Stride will live to see a sequel. It will not be, as originally planned, a DLC or an update, but a full-fledged sequel. Stride: Fates is a title developed with augmented reality goggles in mind.

"In this new full-fledged game, you will join SkyChase's elite forces to travel and shoot your way through an amazing story-driven adventure. Launching this holiday season!," reads an excerpt from the announcement on Meta's website.

In order to survive and climb the ranks of the SkyChase unit, players will have to deal with power shifts in gangs, family conflicts, corporate secrets, forbidden technology and many other issues that can stand in the way of success.

As assured by the developers at Joy Way, Stride: Fates improves on every aspect known from the original. The developers have been particularly attentive to improving the parkour elements, which were the strength of the first game. The game engine was also redesigned to offer a more "advanced level of visuals, physics and interactivity."

This is what Mirror's Edge 3 could look like

When speaking of Stride: Fates, it is impossible to avoid associations with the Mirror's Edge series. Indeed, inspiration with this already classic series by EA DICE are visible in the work of Joy Way. All the more saddening is the fact that creators of Battlefield are not going to (at least for now) to resurrect the much-loved series.

Below you can watch the announcement trailer of Stide: Fates, while imagining what the possible Mirror's Edge 3 could have looked like, if DICE did not focus only on Battlefield.

As the developers mentioned earlier, the release of Stide: Fates will take place in the run-up to Christmas. The game will be available on Meta devices and PC (Steam).

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
