Beyond: Two Souls Launch Trailer Prepares You for David Cage’s Ellen Page Simulator

Coinciding with the launch of David Cage’s latest attempt to innovate interactive storytelling, developer Quantic Dream and publisher Sony have released a new trailer for Beyond: Two Souls.

The video, which is embedded below, is cut like a movie trailer—something that’s rather appropriate for a game largely inspired by cinema and starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe—though without the appropriate amount of voice over/dialogue interweaving throughout it.

Beyond represents a step forward in terms of how stories are told and how developers can blur the line between games and cinema,” Sony Computer Entertainment Europe product manager Ross Alexander wrote in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “It’s a truly  unique experience—with gripping performances delivered in full performance capture by Ellen and Willem, unparalleled cinematic presentation, and a powerfully emotional and thrilling story which branches based on your successes and failures.”

Beyond: Two Souls is now available exclusively for PlayStation 3 in North America. To find out of Alexander’s hype is actually on the mark or just typical marketing hyperbole, check out Josh’s Beyond: Two Souls review.
