Beyond: Two Souls confirmed as Quantic Dream’s next project

Tuesday, 5th June 2012 02:15 GMT By Matt Williams

During Sony’s E3 2012 press conference, Quantic Dream CEO David Cage confirmed that the company’s next project will be the title Beyond: Two Souls, as was rumoured earlier today.

Beyond will tell the story of a life over 15 years, with a heavy focus on the afterlife. “Death is the biggest mystery of mankind. What happens next, no one knows,” Cage stated.

“Beyond will be unlike anything you have ever experienced before,” according to Cage. “If you make the right decisions, maybe you will discover what lies beyond.”

Cage also confirmed that the game’s protagonist, Jodie Holmes, will be played by Ellen Page.

The title was outed earlier today by Official PlayStation Magazine.

    Hehe Ellen Page of all people. So that’s where she was when they were casting for The Last of Us :)

    That’s a nice cut-scene you have there Sony. Wonder what the actual game revolves around because they sure didn’t show one.

    graphics is too incredible man, MAJOR jump from Heavy Rain.

    i can’t believe all is in real time and actual in-game graphics and not pre-rendered

    That definitely did look nice. Very impressed with the tech. The lack of gameplay was a bit of a disappointment though.

    I hope Cage doesn’t screw up the story for a third time…

    Ellen Page’s involvement should give this quite a bit of exposure in mainstream media (your Hollywood Reporters, Deadlines, etc.),which can only be a good thing.

    Will also help to break the stigma that gaming is below A-list actors.

    I agree as far as I know its going to be another interactive movie much like Heavy Rain. Gamefly it is for me.

    @7 I actually found quite a lot of replayability from Heavy Rain. Just generally taking different decisions and messing around after the first ‘vanilla’ playthrough. Managed to get seven of the different endings.

    Peculiarly, it’s also a nice game to play in front of an audience. I’ve played the whole thing start to finish for different people on about three occasions now.

    Amazing tech for this gen and will love to “play” that. Love heavy rain but this is tremendously ahead graphics wise. And yeah: Ellen Page!
