You're Probably Going to Want to Watch This Beyond: Two Souls Trailer

Posted by Sammy Barker

All aboard

Don’t worry if you skipped last night’s Beyond: Two Souls gameplay premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, because this trailer should send your anticipation levels through the roof. It shows off a number of key new scenes from the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive, and highlights just how groundbreaking the release looks poised to be. Honestly, the animation and voice acting is on a whole new level.

The game’s due out on 8th October in North America, and we suspect that it’s going to be absolutely amazing. If you want to watch a repeat of last night’s Q&A panel with David Cage and Ellen Page, point your browser through here. Remember to leave us a note in the comments section if you’re excited.

@get2sammyb I know what you mean. That trailer was absaloutly epic. This game has the potential to be THE defining game of this generation. Im actually looking forward to this more than The Last of Us :P

@get2sammyb Maybe but you don't regard a defining game of a generation as being technical but by being fun. I really enjoyed Heavy Rain and will likely really enjoy this - and after Luigi's Mansion 2 it's my most wanted game this year - but I understand the majority of people who play it will undoubtedly be bored out of their skull with watching cutscene after cutscene and doing sod all themselves. I personally enjoyed that and was gripped by the story but I'm the only person I know who enjoyed Heavy Rain, everyone else thinks its the worst game ever made. I can see that happening with Beyond too.

@get2sammyb @rastamadeus Aye thats what I meant. From a technical and cinematic viewpoint it looks to be above what most games are capable of delivering. Its not going to be everyones cup o' tea when it comes to gameplay, as anyone who disliked Heavy Rain, would be same with Beyond. I didnt intend on it sounding like I was stating Beyond was insumountable by any other means and all games should fall at its feet and proclaim it master, but I can see how you'd come to that conclusion when I look back at my post. Sorry for the confusion chaps!

Personally I think it has the "potential" to spin the gaming industry in a new direction. Certainly appeal to a different (non FPS) audience. It depends how well it sells.

As for liking or not Heavy Rain, I think it came down mostly to age. Most people I know who thought it was boring were mid twenties or younger. People who were married or 30+ connected more with the game, which makes sense considering the content.

Yep, this game is looking great. Though I find it somewhat jarring to see some character models look head and shoulders above others in terms of quality.

@rawr1234 Your reasoning I am a Nintendo fanboy based purely on one avatar while not actually taking anything I actually say into account and then creating an account on here just to say that is even more boring though. But hey, it's the internet, so why bother actually knowing what you talk about before making your opinion known?

I'm not a fan of David Cage, Quantic Dream, or Heavy Rain... but there's no denying this is a technical masterpiece. The PS3 can still work wonders.

I've seen a lot of trailers for movies in my lifetime and a lot of great looking wonderful trailers turn out to be for really really horrible POS movies. So I don't trust trailers for movies anymore. Though I did just get suckered into seeing Croods last month, hilarious looking trailer, everything else in the movie was ABC Afterschool Special. I should know better by now.

Long story short, I'm certainly not trusting a movie trailer for a videogame.
Looks awesome yes, plays like...?
Movies tickets are about $10 - I paid $6 for Croods - games are $60. That's a gamble I can't afford to make.

I just watched Firestarter recently, and even Drew Barrymore couldn't keep that movie from aging like an episode of A-Team. Akira will be a classic forever. I'm obviously very curious as to what happens when you merge the 2 into a videogamemovie w/ some marvelous acting, but I'm not ready to say "and the Oscar goes too..." just yet.
