Beyond Makes An Impact At The Tribeca Film Festival
The Tribeca Film Festival has once again played host to a video game. And it's Quantic Dream's upcoming dramatic thriller, Beyond: Two Souls.
This included a panel discussion with director David Cage and the Hollywood cast that is featured in the game. Boasting a "gripping, non-chronological narrative," Quantic's latest includes voiceover work from acclaimed actors Ellen Page ("Juno," "X-Men"), Willem Dafoe ("Platoon," "Spider-Man"), Kadeem Hardison ("A Different World," "The Dark Party") and Eric Winter ("The Ugly Truth," "The Mentalist").
The anticipated title is slated to launch in North America exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on October 8, 2013. The aforementioned panel featured Page, Hardison and Winter, and it was led by journalist Harold Goldberg.
"This has been a really intense and exciting experience for me, and one that I am extremely proud of. I’m excited to see everyone’s reaction to the extended scene we are going to be screening – and to feel the powerful emotion that David Cage instills in all his games."
Dafoe added that "this is a momentous event both in the world of gaming and in the history of the Tribeca Film Festival," and that Beyond is "unlike any project I've ever been involved with before." Thanks to cutting-edge performance capture technology, these great actors will come to life in the game. We've seen really impressive mo-cap tech before and from what we've seen thus far in Beyond, we're bound to be impressed again.
"Quantic Dream is incredibly proud to share this vision of storytelling in games that redefines and breaks the boundaries of what games can achieve. We hope that BEYOND’s recognition as an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival will only act as a catalyst to create more emotionally-charged games that explore mature themes."
And we were treated to a new trailer, too!
