Quantic Dream takes next cinematic experience Beyond: Two Souls

Following their impressive tech demo first unveiled in March, many were wondering what Quantic Dream would do as an encore to the acclaimed Heavy Rain, and at Sony's press conference at E3 the experimental French studio unveiled its plans - not for what's next, but for what lies Beyond: Two Souls

The new "interactive drama" casts players primarily in the role of Jodie Holmes, a "young woman who possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity."  In a globetrotting adventure taking place over the course of fifteen years, players will "experience the most striking moments of Jodie’s life as your actions and decisions determine her fate."

As the game's first trailers reveal, the lead character in Beyond is none other than actress Ellen Page (Juno, Inception).  While few details have yet been revealed about Beyond's gameplay, Quantic promises that players will "take full control of Jodie as well as the mysterious entity in spectacular action and adventure sequences."  Writer David Cage emphasizes that the focus will always be on the narrative, however, delivering a "unique, interactive psychological thriller".

As with Heavy Rain, you'll need to have a PlayStation 3 to experience Beyond: Two Worlds, as the game is scheduled to be released exclusively on Sony's console in the spring of 2013.
