David Cage, founder of Quantic Dream, began his enigmatic speech with a question that humans have been asking for centuries now – What happens after living things die? What lies beyond our lives? Will gamers find the answer in Beyond: Two Souls?
Cage announced that actress Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) will lend her voice and looks to the main character, Jodi Holmes, a woman with a psychic ability. The game footage showed Jodi sitting mutely while a local police officer questioned her origins. It also featured some climatic car explosions. Players will experience 15 years of Jodi’s life as she embarks on a journey to uncover the truth of the ultimate question.
Beyond: Two Souls is expected to get a release date in Q1 2013 and will be exclusive for PlayStation 3.
