During Sonys E3 press briefing earlier today, Quantic Dreams David Cage announced that the Golden Globe winner and Academy Award-nominated Canadian actress Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) will play the lead character in Beyond: Two Souls for the PS3.
As Jodie Holmes, Page is set to star in Quantic Dreams follow-up to the successful Heavy Rain. With Page attached to the project, players can expect top-notch quality acting and emotions from enigmatic Jodie. Its amazing how much Jodie looks like Ellen Page, with the presentation, animation, and voice fitting the role as David Cage first envisioned for the character.
Beyond: Two Souls centers on an enigmatic girl as she learns to get to grips with her supernatural powers. With militarisitic forces hot on her trail, Jodie slowly tries to understand what exactly had happened to her.
Beyonds E3 demo (which was all rendered in real-time) featured some of the most realistic and astounding facial animations in a game. Id even say that the animation and emotions as acted by the characters are truly believable. Anyone passing by as you play Beyond: Two Souls will actually think that youre watching a movie.
Quantic Dreams promised that the game will push the limits of interactive storytelling with deep characters you can relate to in an action-packed and suspenseful story with a dramatic twist. David Cage even said:
We want to provide gamers unique moments that players will remember for a long time.
Given Quantic Dreams expertise in creating tension, mood, as well as Ellen Pages Oscar-caliber acting, theres no doubt that Beyond: Two Souls will push interactive entertainment to a whole new level.
