Two years ago, L.A. Noire made a huge splash at the Tribeca Film Festival. Team Bondi’s detective yarn was recognized by the Tribeca Film Institue as an Official Selection of the festival, the first video game to receive such an honor.
This year, Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls was picked as an Official Selection of the festival and a panel featuring actors Ellen Page, Kadeem Hardison, and Eric Winter took place yesterday in New York City. The three actors presented a never-before-seen section of the game, “Homeless,” which follows the game’s main character, Jodie Holmes (Page), during a part of her life where she is homeless. She must “find the will to survive in dire circumstances” as she “forms with other homeless characters and the challenges they face, including finding their next meal, struggling to survive and retaining their belief in humanity.”
Also, Jodie is “linked” with an entity known as Aiden and is being tracked by the CIA due to her telekinetic abilities. But she’s not alone; a scientist named Nathan Dawkins (played by Willem Dafoe) has been helping Jodie try to control her powers since she was a child.
To celebrate the game’s Tribeca debut, Sony has released a new trailer for Beyond: Two Souls, which will be available for the PS3 on October 8. You can check out the trailer after the break.
