E3 2012 – Sony Press Conference: Heavy Rain Developer Quantic Dream Shows Off ‘Beyond’. Looks Gorgeous. Trailer Inside.

with one comment

The latest title from Heavy Rain developers Quantic Dream, was always going to make a splash, where better then, for such a splash to be made than right at the start of the Sony E3 presser.

Showing Quantic Dream’s considerable flair for the cinematic and of course, beautiful gorgeous visuals, Beyond aims to take us on a journey to discover what lies beyond death with an innocent young woman, played with expert nuance and aplomb by Juno star, Ellen Page.

Boasting an eerily close visage to it’s voice actress, the level of facial animation and sheer amount of detail almost make us forget that LA Noire and it’s facial tech even existed.  This is some seriously next-gen looking stuff, with Ellen Page’s character evoking such a powerful level of emotion without saying word – just mere muscle twitches in her face are enough to convey palpably strong levels of emotion.  It’s powerful stuff, but despite this, no real gameplay was shown, though it certainly wouldn’t be unreasonable to infer that the game would play very similar to Heavy Rain; mixing up cinematic exploration and QTE action scenes.

Take a look at the breathtaking trailer for yourself:

Beyond is due to release sometime in 2013 on PS3.
