The teaser for Beyond: Two Souls is like taking The Tracey Fragments to Chronicle. But we're getting ahead of ourselves when it comes to the latest from Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and the criminally underrated Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy.
The official description:
"BEYOND: Two Souls (tm) is a unique psychological action thriller featuring Academy Award(r) nominee, Ellen Page in the lead role. Experience the incredible life of a person who possesses extraordinary powers through a connection with an invisible entity. Watch as your actions and decisions determine her fate and face incredible emotional challenges never before seen in a video game."
The entity, who could be the Ivan that she refers to after laying siege to a SWAT unit, apparently allows Page to go full-onpsychokinetic crazy from demolishing a building to taking over soldiers. Aside from some as-usual-amazing images from Quantic Dream, there's currently no other info for Beyond aside from it likely being a Playstation exclusive. No dates or confirmation what we saw was in-game footage either, but considering it's Quantic it probably isn't that different from the playable format.
Because if Heavy Rain needed anything, it was crazy psychic powers and the ability to destroy whole towns with my other soul.
