David Cage came out on stage during the Sony press conference, making a lot of gamers happy (myself included). The new title, Beyond: Two Souls, touches on the spiritual. Cage went on to talk about what happens after death, and the game’s main character, Jody Holmes. The game will follow her for 15 years, and she is being played by Ellen Page.
They showed a scene from the game in real time. The scene had Jody in a cop’s office, silent and frightened and refusing to answer his questions. It started out slowly, but then changed into the supernatural, with a coffee cup smashing into the wall, and the cop leaving. Once she was alone, she said “they are coming,” and a SWAT team appeared. After that quick demo, there was a trailer for the game, which just had more clips of Jody fighting, riding a motorcycle, and things blowing up.
Heavy Rain was one of my favorite games on the PlayStation 3, so I’m excited to see what this game has in store for us.
