9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a fresh video today announcing that Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3 is not another Heavy Rain.
To quote: At first glance, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain seem to have more in common than not. Both games focus on intricate narratives and deep character development, highlighted by cutting-edge performance capture and dazzling digital sets.
But on closer examination, Beyond: Two Souls, which launches exclusively for PS3 on October 8th, is a wholly unique creation with no obvious analogue.
For one, its sweeping story focuses on one character instead of four. Beyond: Two Souls spans an entire lifetime as it follows the trials of protagonist Jodie Holmes (Ellen Page) and her constant companion, Aiden - an invisible entity with incredible powers. For another, it features a radically different, more direct play style compared to Heavy Rain.
In our new interview, Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere discusses the differences between the team's two latest projects, and the daunting scope of the story. Listen in for his insight on the game design process, and how Quantic Dream infused player-driven choices into a story-driven experience.
