Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain was hugely ambitious project that melded gaming with film. While it was not a complete success for Sony, it was an intriguing endeavor that they obviously thought delivered enough on its promise that they bankrolled Quantic’s next effort in interactive cinema, Beyond: Two Souls, starring Ellen Page. The game seems to veer away from the noir stylings of Heavy Rain and venture into a more sci-fi/horror setting. The visuals and animations look like huge improvements over Heavy Rain but it was not made clear if what was shown was gameplay or just a cutscene. My guess is that it was just a cutscene. Regardless the game looks great and should be a highlight of Sony’s upcoming lineup.
