Willem Dafoe, Ellen Page Star in BEYOND: Two Souls October 8th

Posted by Derek Osgood // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment America -

Last year at E3 we announced the much anticipated title from Heavy Rain creators Quantic Dream and the mind of visionary director David Cage. BEYOND: Two Souls is a psychological action thriller starring Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Inception, Juno) in the lead role of Jodie Holmes and featuring Quantic Dream’s unique brand of gameplay. (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

Having Dafeo here is great. The more that we cross boundries and create games that are cinematic and contain brilliant narrative, the more our industry will be respected as a viable genre. We're at the dawn of a new age of games, people - I can't wait to see this in action.

Platoon, The Boondock Saints and Antichrist (amongst others) say hello! Check these movies out, you're doing yourself a favor.

Green Goblin from Spider Man movie dude!!

I definitely get a video game boner from this. Can't wait. Loved everything Quantic Dream has done since Omikron.

Quantic Dream is so good at making the player forget about their own world and pulling them into theirs.

Looks like those William Dafoe rumors back then were true. And wow, just like Ellen, QD literally put Dafoe into the game :O

You know I could see more actors in the future doing this sort of thing. I bet for most of them it's a nice change from Hollywood

You know what they should do...an Alien game, survival horror, Ripley, Sigourney Weaver
nrvalleytime  +   497d ago
Developed by Gearbox Software?

Just kidding. In fact, here's another alternative - Rocksteady. Think of what they could do with the Alien IP.

You can hate on Cage all you want but atleast he is taking a step towards blurring the lines of videogames and movies.

The real question is: is that a line we want to blur or cross? I don't think that becoming more like movies is a good direction for gaming, as they'll frankly never be as good as movies at being movies. That's just common sense.

I'll always be more impressed by games that convey story through gameplay and without interruption. That's how videogames can mature and become more like "art"; but trying to ape movies - especially Hollywood movies - all in the name of maturity, seems utterly shortsighted and is averse to what makes games great: interactivity and gameplay.

Amazing! Because of this video, I am way more excited than I was before for the game. Now... it's time to wait.
first1NFANTRY  +   497d ago
It's an all star cast. Defoe is one of my favourite actors.

Like I needed more of a reason to buy this game. Day 1 for sure!!!
clearelite  +   497d ago
Defoe is perfect for this and one of the actors I welcome into the video game industry. He is very well respected yet manages to keep a somewhat low profile.
GribbleGrunger  +   497d ago
And that is THIS gen ... can you imagine what Cage will be doing with tech that can create that old man's face at the playstation meeting. Can't wait for this game and I can't wait for next gen

From the PSblog:

'Keep following our news. As someone who’s played those games as well I can honestly say Beyond is an evolution in more than just the talent involved.'

I was on the fence with this game before, but Willem Dafoe definitely swerves me into the must buy category. I really enjoy his acting. Sold.

Sony You better Promote the Heck out out his game! This game needed a Superbowl Ad.

Preordering this game when I pick up God of War Acsension! Enough said, this game has joined my hype train!
Gamer-40  +   497d ago
Awesome movie!
Sorry, game.
HorrorGod  +   497d ago
Dafoe is one of the great ones. Awesome addition to the cast.
This is the last "major" PS3 exclusive before the PS4 drops. Very much looking forward to it.
GribbleGrunger  +   497d ago
The fact that a high profile actor can now sell a game in the same way they can sell movies is a huge leap over how things have been done in the past. Games are about to move into a whole new sphere and we the gamer are going to benefit. We could be witnessing a new era, not just in visuals and gameplay, but in how games are perceived throughout the world. I envy all those youngsters who are about to begin this journey.

He was good in everything or nothing I used to love that game.
blackbirdi  +   497d ago
