Quantic Dream to Take You to the Beyond

Ross Alexander's Avatar + Posted by Ross Alexander on Jun 04, 2012 // Product Manager, SCEE

Hopefully many of you will have seen that we’ve just announced the much anticipated next title from Quantic Dream, the makers of Heavy Rain. BEYOND: Two Souls is an interactive psychological action thriller starring Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Inception, Juno) in the lead role of Jodie Holmes. Yes, I know, Ellen Page — pretty awesome!

Ever since she was born, Jodie has always been different from everyone else. She possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity she calls Aiden, and this gift has changed her life forever.

In BEYOND: Two Souls you will experience the most striking moments of Jodie’s life as your actions and decisions determine her fate. You’ll also be able to take full control of both Jodie and the entity in spectacular action and adventure scenes. And as Jodie traverses the globe, you will face incredible challenges in emotionally charged events never before seen in a video game.

BEYOND: Two Souls also features a brand-new game engine and will be one of the best-looking games ever seen on a PS3. Don’t take my word for it, watch our E3 trailer above!

And a couple of screenshots below showing Jodie in action:

We’ll have lots more to come in the coming weeks and months, so do stay in touch.

Looks interesting. Much more so than the Last of Us. I’m so tired of shooting people in games.

Oh wow. That’s what I’m talking about. A little something different and with Heavy Rain already one of my all time faves, I’m very much looking forward to this. Glad the exclusives keep coming to PS3…so many great games coming out. Time to catch up on my back log of games!

WOW! This game really surprised me. I thought it would be AWESOME and have great graphics (it’s Quantic Dream were talking after all) but it I was OVERWHELMED! The story was so fascinating and intriguing even in just a few minutes and the graphics were SUPERB! Really Sony, hats off to you, you guys made one of the best E3 ever and I just can’t wait to play these games by myself.

Also: BEYOND!

1 Word !! AWESOME !!!

+ mystikalguy on June 4th, 2012 at 8:28 pm said:

BEYOND looks very interesting….Hmmmm, but this game has got me thinking. Could this be the reason Naughty Dog changed the look on the young girl in The Last Of Us because of the resemblance of Actrress Ellen Page & also the REAL Ellen Page actually starring in this game to avoid any conflict?

+ FJ1100_rider on June 4th, 2012 at 8:33 pm said:

Wow , just Wow , amazing .
Must buy this game , please give us more info and a release date asap

David Kage rocks! He has to be one of the best storytellers in the history of games.

I love his accent, I remember the first demo in the begining of Indigo Prophecy when he talks about having “GOOD REFLAXES”

This game looks crazy, I can’t wait, it looks like it reverts back into the style of Indigo Prophecy with the slightly supernatural.

A very interesting looking game. Heavy Rain was really a worthwhile experience and I’m sure that this one will be just as amazing. I eagerly await for it’s release.

+ Myke-Myke on June 4th, 2012 at 8:59 pm said:

Sony, just acquire Quantic Dream!!!

Do NOT let this Dev go Multi-platform!!!

BEYOND is gonna be a huge game and I cant wait to see/hear more info about this title!

^I think Quantic understands that PS3 has many mature players that will be able to appreciate something unique like what they provide.

I hope it’s released soon! BEYOND!

Opening the show with this surprise was probably the highlight of the presentation. Except not probably, definitely. So different, so moody, so intelligent, such amazing animation. This teaser made me so hopeful as a gamer. A pre-order, for sure.

I am eager to see more of this game. Heavy Rain may have been flawed. but it’s also unlike anything else on the market.

Hooo~ly~ crap… that game looks “Freaking Awesome!” I don’t care when this comes out, it is a “Must Pre-Order” and “Day One Buy” rolled into a single game. Cannot wait for more info on this! :D

And was I the only one that noticed the cops badge# was 420? Oh, the irony!

+ dragonlord72 on June 6th, 2012 at 3:15 pm said:

This game does look fantastic for the graphics. No doubt Quantic Dream has a solid grasp on getting that right. I am wondering however if the gameplay will match? I’ve been disappointed by games in the past that looked great but sacrificed the gamer in just as engrossing interaction, Final Fantasy comes to mind a game that looks great but more time is spent watching it rather than playing it. Heavy Rain was a good game but lost out on player involvement in my opinion. I hope this game has found that perfect balance and if so… well lets just wait and believe it will.
