Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain coming to PlayStation 4

Beyond: Two Souls is coming to the PlayStation 4 on 24 November, developer Quantic Dream today confirmed on the PlayStation Blog.

The PlayStation 3 title will feature the return of Ellen Page and Willem Defoe as two actors who know how to deliver a line or two, and Jodie Holmes — one of the more troubled, and creepy, female protagonists in gaming.

Although it seems that the PlayStation 4 version of the game is largely a remaster, Quantic Dream‘s co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has noted that there will be a few more additions for fans on the newer gen console:

  • Enhanced 1080p graphics including motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects, as well as improved lighting and shadows. The game also makes use of the DualShock 4 speaker to improve immersion when playing as the Entity.

  • Decisions are highlighted at the end of each scene and compared with those made by other players.

  • You can now play the game in chronological order right from the start – a much requested feature in the PS3 version!

  • Increased difficulty in certain fight scene, combined with improved controls for action sequences.

  • Includes the “Enhanced Experiments” DLC.

In the same blog post, de Fondaumiere also revealed that Heavy Rain — a hat tip to the noir filming style of yesteryear — will debut on the PlayStation 4 digitally on 1 March 2016.

“What’s more, those who purchase Beyond: Two Souls digitally will be entitled to download Heavy Rain on PS4 when it releases at a discount,” he concludes.
