Sony Computer Entertainment America hosted the official screening of BEYOND: Two Souls gameplay at the Tribeca Film Festival which included a panel discussion with Game Director David Cage and the Hollywood cast on Saturday. Releasing in North America on October 8, 2013, BEYOND: Two Souls takes players across the globe on a journey that explores 15 years of Jodie Holmes life. The original story seems to have jumped right from the silver screen, as main character Jodie, aided by scientist Nathan Dawkins (Dafoe) discovers a connection to a mysterious entity, setting off a thrilling journey to discover the truth about life, death and who she is – a central theme that provides a rich and evocative narrative.
The exclusive scene revealed at the Tribeca Film Festival, titled “Homeless,” follows Jodie during an emotionally and physically challenging part of her life where she is homeless and must find the will to survive in dire circumstances. The scene explores the relationships 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.
My hopes are very high for this game as I expect Quantic Dream to again deliver an emotionally charged and draining experience. The fact that the game will explore 15 years of the main characters life, I expect that will allow players to really become attached to her and really become invested in her story. So with no further ado, check out the latest gameplay footage from Beyond: Two Souls entitled “Homeless”.
