When Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain was released 2 years ago, it was meet with critical acclaim; selling over 2 million copies world wide. Now Quantic Dream has announced their latest game at this years E3. It’s called Beyond: Two Souls, and it is awesome!
Not much information was given about Beyond‘s story. The game centers around Jodie Holmes (who is played by actress Ellen Page), a young woman with psychic powers. Apparently, these powers come from a connection she has with a ghost named Ivan. The story will follow 15 years of Jodie’s life as she tries to understand the bond she has with Ivan.
What made the reveal of Beyond: Two Souls so amazing, however, was the trailer for the game. The trailer not only showcases the Beyond’s story, but also it’s technical power. Thanks to advanced motion-capture technology, the character’s expressions and movement are incredibly life-like; they just ooze with emotion! Beyond also features lots of action; with intense chase scenes and tons of explosions.
Personally, I think Beyond: Two Souls looks amazing. It has that epic cinematic feel to it; with emotionally driven characters and intense drama (the good kind of course). If Quantic Dream plays their cards right, Beyond could very well blow Heavy Rain out of the water. I just wish they’d hurry up and give us a release date for the game (all though it’s probably too early to determine).
