Beyond: Two Souls

Beyond: Two Souls is an upcoming video game for the PlayStation 3 console, under development by French developer Quantic Dream. It stars actors Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page, and is set for release on 8 October 2013.

Development


Quantic Dream CEO David Cage announced the title at Sony's press conference during the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2012. A debut trailer featuring in-game graphics was released during the press conference. Unlike Quantic Dream's previous game Heavy Rain, which supported the PlayStation Move, Beyond: Two Souls will not be PlayStation Move compatible. Actress Ellen Page noted that the script for the game is around 2000 pages long.

It will be the final soundtrack of composer Normand Corbeil, who died of pancreatic cancer on 25 January 2013. Scottish composer Lorne Balfe, who composed the soundtrack for Assassin's Creed III, replaced Corbeil as the game's composer, after Corbeil's death.

Plot


The game, which features psychologicalspiritual and thriller elements, is centered around questions about what happens after death. The game lets the player take Jodie Holmes through 15 years of her life (ages eight through 23) on a journey to discover the true meaning of the entity Aiden, who has been alongside her throughout her life. The game's producer noted that players might be able to find out "what lies beyond" after playing it.
