Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain Dated For PS4

Sony Computer Entertainment today announced the PS4 release dates for PS3 classics, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain.

Read over the press release below to see what’s new in the updated version of Beyond: Two Souls.

Beyond: Two Souls on will be available to digitally download on PlayStation 4 from 26 November 2015.

Quantic Dream, the creative masterminds behind the acclaimed PlayStation exclusive Heavy Rain, has digitally remastered the genre-defining game using the power of the PS4. With the rising popularity of the interactive drama, the pioneering studio is also bringing Heavy Rain to PS4, bundling both masterpieces physically and digitally from 2 March 2016.

In Beyond: Two Souls, players will have another chance to experience the story of Jodie Holmes (played, excellently, by Ellen Page), a young woman who possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity, and whose life intertwines with the complex Dr. Dawkins (brought to life by the inimitable Willem Dafoe), on PS4.

The PS4 edition of Beyond: Two Souls has a number of improvements:

  • 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 EntityDecisions 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 in the base game

You will be able to buy the digital copy of Beyond: Two Souls for $59.95.

PlayStation can also now confirm that the Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls Collection, announced in June this year, will be available to buy at retail from 2 March 2016.

There’s no need to wait for the collection to start playing though. Those who purchase Beyond: Two Souls digitally will be entitled to download Heavy Rain on PlayStation 4 when it releases for $14.95 – ensuring that you don’t pay more for the two games separately than you would for the Collection.
