»Beyond: Two Souls« live demo at Sony's E3 Press Conference / »The East« gets DVD/Blu-ray release date
on 07/21/2013
Quantic Dream participated in Sony's E3 Press Conference on June 10 to give an overview on its latest work. In addition to »The Dark Sorcerer«, a comedy tech demo for the upcoming PlayStation 4 console, David Cage provided commentary for a new live demo of »Beyond: Two Souls« played on stage by Co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière.

In the scene, which is supposed to take place in the last third of the game, Jodie Holmes has been recruited by the CIA and sent on a questionable mission to assassinate the ruthless Somali warlord Jamaal and return with evidence of his death. As she makes her way through the hostile town with the help of an AK-47 wielding child soldier named Salim, it becomes clearer how the dual gameplay styles will complement each other.

Beyond: Two SoulsBeyond: Two Souls

Due to ongoing firefights, Jodie soon unleashes Aiden to assist her. He can knock over, distract, and outright kill the attackers. The spirit companion can even possess susceptible foes, giving players control of that character in order to do their dirty work. This usually results in the quick death of the assailed enemy, whether through brutal suicide or by drawing the attention of other enemies in the area, who will attack the possessed person. Despite these many possibilities, Aiden is still limited in his scouting range since he can't move too far from the main protagonist. Jodie serves as a kind of anchor for Aiden preventing experienced players from completing the entire level as an all-powerful ghost. Holmes’ movements in turn are at times relegated to quick-time events and a limited range of context-sensitive actions.

This dichotomy is emphasized when the duo finally approaches the mission's target. Since Jamaal is surrounded by high walls and armed guards, Jodie is forced to hide in a nearby building while Aiden finishes the job in his own unique way. He passes through the barriers, simply possesses one of Jamaal's guards and finally shoots the warlord down without regard for losses. But as helpful as having Aiden around might seem, the Somalia scene shows that his actions are not entirely in Jodie's control and his propensity for violence sometimes complicates her mission. While Jodie tries to retrieve photographic evidence of Jamaal's death, Salim enters the scene and finds his father among the dead. Filled with hatred, the young boy turns on Holmes and attempts to shoot her, but Aiden springs up to form an impenetrable shield, leaving the boy with no recourse as he lies at his father's side. There is no time for expressing condolences and profound thought, since the commotion brings the townspeople out. Soon after, Holmes finds herself running for her life while calling desperately for backup. She runs into a house and barricades herself inside, while people outside attempt to break down the doors and windows. Wounded and at the end of her rope, Jodie puts a gun to her head and eventually intends to kill herself. Ironically, it's once again Aiden who offers a way out by providing a ladder that brings Jodie to the rooftop of the house. Encircled by attackers and fearing for her life, she is finally rescued by military forces flying in with helicopters.

As stated previously, »Beyond« is all about decisions and their consequences, and will offer a varying degree of player choice. Although it's not exactly known at this time how Jodie Holmes could have gone through the Somalia sequence in any other manner, Fondaumière stated during a subsequent Q&A session that things can turn out differently. So will Salim show up again later in the story? And if so, will his role change depending on whether his father is alive or dead? Quantic Dream's Co-CEO wouldn't say, instead offering the cryptic response that "there are different ways to kill Jamaal."

Beyond: Two SoulsBeyond: Two Souls

"Characters can live and die and that has a consequence to the story. [...] You are never really going to know at the end of any given scene what you will experience next. You might, at some moments, even discover consequences before their causes." This is pretty much identical to »Heavy Rain«, though it seems that »Beyond: Two Souls« might be even more wide-ranging and open-ended. "Different paths leading to different endings. That's the general idea. [...] There will never be a game over screen, the game ends at the end," he explained.

On the occasion of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Quantic Dream also released two new trailers introducing some of the key elements and showing a wide range of scenes and locations. As announced in the gameplay trailer, »Beyond« will have animations adapt to the environment, contextual motions and interactions, simple and accessible controls, a new interaction system and a new action system based on bullet time & motion. The second clip begins with Jodie being enrolled into a CIA military school and follows her training and fighting via notably conventional methods. It then ends with a couple of sequences from the aforementioned Somalia mission. Furthermore, reporters were allowed to play this demo sequence as well as a level called "Haunted" where Jodie is on the run and has to escape the police. Detailed reports featuring the testers’ experiences, thoughts and impressions can be found on the websites of Thunderbolt, 2D-X, Gamer Horizon and IGN.
