Beyond: Two Souls Image

Most gamers need only hear the name David Cage to become interested in a new video game. Cage and his Quantic Dream’s primary focuses are emotion and storytelling and innovation, which they nailed with Heavy Rain. The team then set out to build off of the foundation they had set with Heavy Rain, which led to the conception of Beyond: Two Souls.

We first found out about the game at E3 last year, when it was revealed that Ellen Page would be the star of the game and a very impressive preview was shown off. Now a new gameplay demo for Beyond: Two Souls has been released, and it is a big one. The demo was shown off at the Tribeca Film Festival—a first for a console-exclusive game—and spans a whopping 35 minutes. In it, you see all of the emotion, storytelling, and innovation Cage and Quantic Dream strive for, making it well worth your time.

Check out the full demo below!

Quantic Dream PS4 Tech Demo

Quantic Dream founder David Cage was on hand at Sony’s PlayStation 4 announcement to talk about the power of the new console. Cage and his company were behind the popular and innovative 2010 game Heavy Rain, and their upcoming title, Beyond: Two Souls, made a huge impact at last summer’s E3 Convention.

First Cage talked about the polygons of previous characters in his games, and how much more will be used for PS4 games—double the amount that went into his Heavy Rain characters. He then showed a very simple but very memorable tech demonstration of what the PS4 can do. The results are stunning, jaw-dropping, and just a tad bit creepy.

But first, this week’s headlines… LinkedIn suffers a massive security breach as 6.4 million passwords get leaked, Google sneaks the first video from Project Glass, Facebook Camera launches, Facebook plans to allow under 13-year-olds into their service, Apple to bring Siri to the iPad, and Airtime launches.

E3 2012: ‘Heavy Rain’ Creator Quantic Dream Announces ‘Beyond: Two Souls’ With Ellen Page

Beyond: Two Souls

The highly anticipated new game from Heavy Rain creator Quantic Dream was announced at E3, and it will be called Beyond: Two Souls.

Unlike Heavy Rain, the new game doesn’t involve you interacting with everything around you, and instead focuses more on action and story. It tells a supernatural story that spans fifteen years. You play as Jodie Holmes, who has some kind of bond with an unseen spiritual being who helps her on her journey and protects her from the many dangerous people who are after her.

Even better, Jodie is played by Ellen Page via performance capture technology. The ultra realistic look is hugely important when characters are an important part of your game, and that’s what players have come to expect from Quantic.

You can check out the impressive preview of Beyond: Two Souls below now.

Game Review: Heavy Rain (Playstation 3)

Heavy Rain, Playstation 3Heavy Rain
Developer: Quantic Dream
Platforms: Playstation 3
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
ESRB: M
Release Date: February 23, 2010

Because the mystery is what makes a large portion of the story enjoyable, I will try and keep spoilers from the main portion of the game to a minimum.

The highly anticipated Heavy Rain has finally arrived. After being touted as a revolutionary step forward in video gaming and spending years in development, the finished product does not disappoint.

The story revolves around four main characters and the investigation into a series of murders in a unspecified neighborhood (though contextual clues imply the setting is near Philadelphia). Over the span of three years, 8 boys disappeared, only to be found several days later, drowned in rain water, with an orchid and an origami figure near their bodies. With no real leads to go on, the police are nowhere near catching the “Origami Killer.”

A majority of the time, especially early on, the player controls Ethan Mars (Pascal Langdale), an average man whose happy married life falls apart after the accidental death of one of his two sons (taking place two years prior to the events of main game). Divorced and having a hard time connecting to his living son, Shaun, Mars suffers from blackouts and depression, made worse when Shaun disappears and is feared to be the next victim of the Origami Killer.
