Hey, look, Beyond: Two Souls is coming out. Wait, next week!?! The game will sell for the PlayStation 4 on November 24, 2015.
So, what will snapping up Beyond: Two Souls for the PlayStation 4 get you that the PlayStation 3 version doesn’t already offer? The PlayStation Blog runs down the list of inclusions and additions, featuring the option to play the game in chronological order.
- Enhanced 1080p graphics including motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects, as well as improved lighting and shadows. The game also makes use of the DualShock 4 speaker to improve immersion when playing as the Entity.
- Decisions are highlighted at the end of each scene and compared with those made by other players.
- Once you have completed Beyond: Two Souls, you will be able to replay the game in chronological order — a much requested feature in the PS3 version!
- Increased difficulty in certain fight scenes, combined with improved controls for action sequences.
- Includes the “Enhanced Experiments” DLC.
I felt pretty mixed when it came to this game. I liked Heavy Rain, for what it’s worth, but Beyond: Two Souls sort of missed the mark for me. It’s story chugged along just fine, but all of the “crazy revelations” felt flat compared to what Quantic Dream did with the Origami Killer.
As for Heavy Rain? That’s coming to the PlayStation 4 as well. While they did not announce the price, I assume it’ll be in line with the $29.99 they’re asking for Beyond: Two Souls. Heavy Rain will go on sale starting March 1, 2016. If you own Beyond: Two Souls on the PlayStation 4 digitally, you’ll get a discount on Heavy Rain as well.
I’m excited for what’s coming from Quantic Dream with Detroit, but I don’t think I’ll be reliving Beyond: Two Souls on the PS4. Heavy Rain? Maybe.
