The lights are on
Update: Trailer and screens added. The makers of Heavy Rain have announced their next game – Beyond: Two Souls.
David Cage took the stage at the Sony press conference to reveal the next project from his storytelling-focused studio.
Jodie Holmes is the main character of the new project. We'll follow her through 15 years of her life.
Cage didn't reveal too much about the game, but did reveal that Ellen Page is the actress behind the central character.
After that announcement, we got to see an early look at the game in action -- a cinematic exchange between Jodie and a police officer. The officer has picked up Jodie by the side of the road, but she's unwilling to speak. When he notices a scar on her neck, a coffee cup on the side of the table supernaturallly lifts off and flings itself against the table.
Suddenly, SWAT breaks into the police station and prepares to storm the room she's in. The demo cuts to numerous action-packed sequences of Jodie on the run, but leaves many mysteries about the exact nature of Jodie's supernatural powers. Both the title of the game and comments by Jodie in the demo indicate that a second, invisible entity named Ivan is accompanying the woman on her journey.
Beyond has some of the most expressive and detailed facial animation we've seen in a game, but it remains to be seen what the project's gameplay will focus on. Are you excited about a new game from the makers of Heavy Rain?

Quantic Dream Delivers Again!
This looks amazing.
It looks so amazing from a visual standpoint. Now, if only we could see some gameplay!
Heavy Rain was absolutely amazing! Can't wait to see more of this!
I am so excited! I only played Heavy Rain a couple of months ago and it's already on my top 10.
I'm very much excited. I love Quantic Dream's work. Every since I finished Heavy Rain for the first time I've been anticipating what Cage and his team come out with next.
Keeping this on the radar!
