Most of us have already seen some information regarding Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls. While watching the trailer below you will see A LOT of Heavy Rain-style graphics and storytelling. It looks like they’ve taken a step forward though in most elements. You’ll see a lot of Jodie Holmes (Ellen Paige) and her military training in the middle east. No word yet if she uses a hamburger phone. The Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) is in a supporting role.
Games that play like a choose your own adventure book are becoming more and more popular. It looks like storytelling will be even more important in the next gaming generation. But you won’t have to wait that long for Beyond: Two Souls, as it ships on October 8th, 2013. I hope you like training with Ellen Paige, because you’ll get your fill here. Or if you like watching a surprisingly lifelike Ellen Paige get all dirty and sweaty, lay back, get comfortable and watch this trailer.
