This Beyond: Two Souls gameplay demo from E3 2012 features Quantic Dream CEO David Cage, who says Beyond is an effort at constructing a cinematic video game with a primary focus on a story that can appeal to mature audiences. Actress Ellen Page, who played Shadowcat in X-Men: The Last Stand, plays Jody Holmes, the protagonist for Beyond: Two Souls.
In Beyond, we follow Jody through 15 years of her life as she tries to learn what happens and where we go when we die. She is also linked to an invisible entity that protects her. Cage says the entity can be both jealous and protective, or blindly violent, so it is unclear whether this entity means well for Jody.
The clips you'll see in this gameplay demo are in real-time, which means you're not watching cut scenes, you're witnessing the incredible time and craft Quantic Dream has put into Beyond.
Beyond: Two Souls is set for release in early 2013 for PS3.
