Gamescom Virtual Booth Tour: Heavy Rain

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Aug 20, 2009 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Meet Detective Shelby, a brand new Heavy Rain character revealed and demoed at Gamescom Cologne. On day one, we scored some time with writer/director and Founder/CEO of developer Quantic Dream David Cage, who was kind enough to take you on a tour of the playable Gamescom demo.

As Detective Shelby enters a convenience store to meet with the father of one of the Origami Killer’s victims…well, you should just watch for yourself. And we didn’t forget about your questions! Head on back next week as Mr. Cage answers some of your questions about Heavy Rain.

For the first time, Uncharted 2 was not the highlight of the Sony. I was amazing at the new trailer for this game and all of a sudden it became a must buy.

Really can’t wait for this game.

The GamesCom trailer was amazing. The was the dad was bonding with his son, and then his whole life was ripped away from him. Then he descends into guilt, and then goes after the origami killer. Fantastic, i was actually welling up when his son died!

Can’t wait :) Looking forward to seeing Mr Cage answer our questions!

+ NITROWOLF_2 on August 20th, 2009 at 4:44 pm said:

so was that sixaxis right there?
will this game use sixaxis?
btw that was cool, this is the third one i have seen, one was he let the robber run, the other one i believe he takes the gun away, and now this one. so that was cool how you tried to sneak up on him and the box almost fell. I wonder what would have happened if it fell.

Wow, I hope the motion controller works with this game. Slowly grabbing a bottle, catching that box, and hitting that guy over the head just beg to be done using that device.

@ TwiztedR3DHead: Quantic Dreams and Mr. Cage are fantastic storytellers. You need only look back at their past efforts.

This game is looking both visually and in the sense of story and mystery, really deliver something special.

Cannot wait.

This game is going to be EPIC!!!

+ Clorix on August 20th, 2009 at 5:01 pm said:

Wow. If this game can be played with the motion control wand things that they showed at E3, it will be an epic WIN! I could just imagine having to “grab” that bottle or trying to catch that box before it hits the floor, then knocking the guy out with the bottle. All that using nothing but the motion control wands.

You guys need to do a Rockstar booth tour next. You know why.

+ disc on August 20th, 2009 at 5:51 pm said:

I have to agree with some of the earlier comments. This scene was the most impressive of all the footage seen so far. First of all the facial expressions look polished and the voice acting fits well and the detective was probably the strongest actor shown so far.

It’s especially impressive when you look at different playthroughs of the same scene.

Everything in this game looks fantastic, except one thing, the game play!

It’s a goddamn QTE orgy!

+ SSully on August 20th, 2009 at 6:19 pm said:

Wow i am very excited for this game now, it is easily the best scene shown so far, i have seen this played out 3 different ways so far and each is significantly different from the other, and just the quality of everything is outstanding.

Haha, he looked like my mom, playing Super Mario from the original Nintendo, when he was about to hit the robber with the bottle.

F—ing EPIC!

+ gachzorge on August 20th, 2009 at 7:18 pm said:

I would LOVE a Heavy Rain demo early for Qore, but it has to be really early, otherwise I just won’t play it, since I know i’d get it any ways, and I wouldn’t want to spoil anything..

Hope they announce a release date soon.

i dont understand how ppl are still holding out on buying a ps3. amongst other great exclusives, heavy rain is up there as one of the best games coming out in the near future


47

+ liketoski on August 20th, 2009 at 8:39 pm said:

For the MAG beta in September…
Do I need to subscribe to Qore to be in this one, or am I already in it with the current beta out now?


48

+ Artificialheart on August 20th, 2009 at 8:41 pm said:

At first I wasn’t really sure about this, but man this was epic, when the box almost dropped I jumped off my seat.
