Beyond: Two Souls demo will be released on October 1

Demo for Quantic Dream's latest game will include two playable chapters.

by

Sony will release a demo of Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls on October 1 in North America, the company has announced.

The demo will be released in Europe a day later, on October 2.

Two levels will be included in the demo. The first, Jodie & Aiden, takes place at the start of the game and has the player take part in an experiment at the Department of Paranormal Activities. The second chapter, Hunted, takes place later in the game and has the game's protagonist, Jodie, attempting to escape from government agents.

"This will be the first chance for most to go hands-on and experience the improvements Quantic Dream has made to Heavy Rain’s control scheme," says Sony.

Quantic Dream recently confirmed that players will be able to control Beyond: Two Souls via iOS and Android devices, but it was not stated if this feature will be included in the demo.

Beyond: Two Souls will be released for the PlayStation 3 on October 8 in North America, and on October 11 in Europe.

People hating on an 'interactive movie'...*face palm. Its a genre some of us enjoy, some don't, it can happily co exist with GTA and Battlefield and Pokemon and all the other titles launching in the next month or so. Im so fed of a supposed 'community' of whining fan boys, with nothing better to do than troll peoples excitement for games. Whether you buy the game or not, whether you dislike David Cage or not, the game WILL sell, it WILL be a success, it WILL make QD a load of cash and ultimately - your cup of tea or not, be a great video game experience.

This does sound like an interesting game, although Ellen Page is kind of off-putting for me.

This game couldn't have come out at a worst time. I'll be too busy playing GTA5 online to pay attention to anything. And when im done I got my ps4 so.. sorry Sony but no buy.

Microsoft refusing to publish heavy rain on the 360 cause of child abduction theme that was foolish

I know you guys are going to throw eggs at me for saying this but I'm sorry Quantic Dream but Naughty Dog's Last of Us beat you guys to the punch with a great story, gameplay, and a better exclusive game and from what I been seeing for Beyond Two Souls, it looks boring, no intense combat, and I'm not paying $60 for a 10 hour game. I'm sorry but the Last of Us is were it's at and I may end up picking this game when it becomes cheap. I will play the Demo but not buying a 10 hour game is not going to happen until it becomes cheap.

Didn't really like Heavy Rain but this looks like it will be good. I might get it on launch.

What will be born from the fevered psyche that is David's mind? Find out the 1st of October!

Will be skipping the demo. Quantic Dream on the box is enough for a day one purchase for me.

Haven't been interested in this since day one, looks mediocre. However I'll give the demo a go and decide then.

Between the BF4 Beta and GTA Online probably won't have time for this!! Gonna be a busy time Oct, and with Pokemon X/Y and Dark Souls 2 beta coming in the middle of the month, gonna be a crazy great (possibly best) month of the year.

I hope MS understands that X1 owners will appreciate some similar exclusives.

Isn't this that game from that developer David Cage who really wants to be a film director?

If you're a girl, you're just jealous. If you're a guy, I don't know what to tell you. She's pretty amazing and hot.

@GONtheSKYLORD I'm fairly sure they're not even porting it over to the PS4. If David Cage stay true to his convictions that is.

@EasyComeEasyGo Both are brilliant in their own respects in both the matter of gameplay mechanics and story.

@El_Zaggy Obviously you've never played their other game heavy rain. If you did you'd know how dumb your comment is. Why don't you go play some COD and yell at other kids with your mental maturity, and leave intelligent games to the adults.

@Ben Treseder Chances are you wont be able to do much but get a taste for it. The server's will be overloaded and buggy, crashing, etc., as the social club was the first day of release. You'll have to wait at least a week most likely to get a truly stable version, maybe less.

@cashx002 @Jasurim I'm sure her performance will immerse you to the point where you don't notice. The overall ambiance of it should if that doesn't. Big fan of both Willem and Ellen, but I really don't see them being a part of the game that jarring of a thing once your knee deep in it.

@cashx002 @Jasurim 

Huh?

No, not jealous.  I don't mind her as an actress, I just find it off-putting having well known actors modeled into games.  All I can see is her and it's a bit immersion breaking for me.  Although, if the game is as great as Heavy Rain hopefully I'll be able to ignore it.

@Dumper1 @canuckbiker It's a great emotional journey with branching paths based on your choices. I thought a mass effect fan would appreciate that. Don't know about you but I controlled my characters movements and actions  in the game, if it's not your cup of tea that's fine, but that doesn't make it worthless.
