The game is still very much a mystery, but Sony and Quantic Dream have announced that Beyond: Two Souls will be available for the PlayStation 3 on October 8.
Ellen Page has left her hamburger phone behind and taken on the role of Jodie Holmes, the game’s heroine. Her ability to interact with an invisible entity she names Aiden forms the backbone of Beyond. But beyond that, Quantic Dream has done a good job of keeping the game’s plot under wraps.
But they peeled back a bit more about the title today with the reveal that Willem Dafoe has signed on to play Nathan Dawkins, a government scientist who works with Jodie to analyse her powers. You can see one of their scenes together in the trailer above.
With a finalized release date, Quantic Dream is also ready to talk about Beyond’s pre-order bonuses. If you plan to pre-purchase the game from your local GameStop, you’ll receive an exclusive “additional scene” that clocks in at 30 minutes. In addition to the DLC mission, pre-orders will be automatically upgraded to a Special Edition that includes Steelbook packaging, extensive Behind-The-Scenes Video Features, a soundtrack, a PS3 Dynamic Theme, and a PSN Avatar Bundle.
