Beyond: Two Souls 'very different from Heavy Rain', promises Cage

Quantic Dream boss promises to 'surprise you'

Quantic Dream boss and Heavy Rain creator David Cage has assured fans that his new game, Beyond: Two Souls is 'very different' from Heavy Rain, and that it will 'surprise you'.


"The game is very different from Heavy Rain, probably much more than people can imagine," he said in an interview with the PS Blog.

"What we showed at E3 was in fact a working version based on the same interface as Heavy Rain, but it is not the final interface of the game."

He said the game will also feature a different balance of action and story.

"It's a balance that will be a little different from Heavy Rain, where we [were] really aiming for the atmosphere of a psychological thriller. Beyond, of course, will also have these components of emotion, depth of characters, strong moments, but there will also be a more epic, dramatic dimension," said Cage.

Later in the interview, Cage promised "surprise" for his fans. "For people who trust us and who loved Heavy Rain - we will surprise you, we will give you something you expect without even knowing that you were expecting it," he said. "I think it will be a real experience. We believe in it and we're working hard for it. We are really surprised every day to see the game being born on the screens; it's a real treat and a real surprise. I hope it has the same effect on the players."
