David Cage on what lies beyond Beyond: Two Souls for Quantic Dream

Beyond: Two Souls won't play anything like Heavy Rain, Cage promises. In the cinematic adventure game, players will take control of both the supernaturally gifted Jodie — played by Ellen Page — and Aiden, the intangible entity that can travel places and behave in ways a human character can't. There are no QTEs, Cage says. Instead, Beyond will introduce new gameplay mechanics that offer similar advantages, but "play more in line with what gamers expect" from a modern action-adventure game.

Cage says that perception of Heavy Rain's QTE-heavy gameplay turned off potential players, even though Quantic Dream received "very positive feedback" about their implementation. (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

It won't have QTEs, it will *BE* ONE.

Heavy Rain was a good game with a good story... but had way to many QTE's for my taste. It was more of a interactive movie then a game.

every game isn't for everyone, go play asura wrath it also has a lot of QTE but its a fun game just like heavy rain was

i don't see david cage ever doing a game where you use FPS or TPS style of controls. I think he has foound his match with QTE and he will stick with that. now with each game i am guessing he has learned how to better use gameplay controls so hopefully beyond 2 souls has improved over heavy rain

but its still gonna have a lot of QTE and that's fine by me and many others who loved heavy rain

I just love how this guy keep pushing the boundaries and think outside of the box.

I love the established genre in games like FPS, TPS, RPG etc but we need people like Cage to push for something different and be pioneers. Its the only way for the gaming industry to grow.

"There are no QTEs, Cage says. Instead, Beyond will introduce new gameplay mechanics that offer similar advantages, but "play more in line with what gamers expect" from a modern action-adventure game."

this sentence made me so excited about this game!!
