New Heavy Rain Gallery Found

Now that 2009 is here, we should all look forward to the potentially masterful PlayStation 3 exclusives. The list includes the likes of Killzone 2, God of War III and Gran Turismo 5, but we'd best not forget about Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain.

First revealed last year to overwhelmed audiences of onlookers, the developers of Indigo Prophecy may provide us with this generation's next unique and defining experience. A fresh batch of screenshots has been found at European gaming site Tiscali Games, and one of those pics is shown here. You really need to view the entire gallery, though, which apparently depicts the game's major crime scene. As you can see, these shots are absolutely spectacular; painstakingly detailed and supremely clean. Perhaps it's too early to glean much in the way of gameplay information from mere screenshots, but if you've already forgotten last year's unveiling, watch the debut gameplay trailer, which is most impressive. Ultimately, what we'll be looking for is a top-notch story with an original and atmospheric environment that is nigh-on unparalleled. We have the highest expectations, and this newest gallery has only served to increase the hype surrounding this production.

As the months progress, we hope to see more concrete info come from Quantic Dream and Sony. This year, Heavy Rain may once again remind us all why we love video games, and just how far the industry has come...

Can't wait, hope the game looks just as good.
This game could really do a lot of the ps3

I'm already replacing Silent Hill for this, I know it's different in theme and concept but within it all it kinda resembles the Silent Hill experience/look.

Sadly I kinda despise SH now and I have every one of them, SH5 sucked hard...

Sadly Scarecrow you are right. SH5 was just not up to the cut like the others. Dead Space totally owned it. I am so looking forward to this game though. Looks gorgeous.

Nice to compare against the concept art.
I checked out the gameplay trailer the other day and suggest you all do if you have doubts about how this game will play. This game will be wild and really intense. Cant wait!

Just had a look at the Galley. No doubts some of those screen shots are impressive; however what I would really like to know if those screen shots are from scene/film sequences spooled directly from blu ray as rendered graphics, or are those screens being generated directly from the real time engine itself. It can be difficult to tell until one is playing the game. If it is from the real-time engine then I think this game, like Killzone 2, Unchartered II and GT5 (and MGS4 to some degree) will silence the PS3 critics into submission.

I have been waiting for this level of quality, been waiting to see the "real" next generation possibilities the PS3 was tauted to have... let us hope this is it...

Q!

Unfortunately we already have come to where we need to be to silence the critics and they still won't shut up and they never will.

I seen an interview from one of the devs in the past few months and he said everything floating around is actual game play. Actually im about 90% sure it was that game. Either way, I hope it is gameplay also.

Heavy Rain doesn't have FMVs. It all runs from the gameplay like MGS or Uncharted.

This one sits pretty close on my radar just behind Dante's Inferno. Confusticate them for releasing so few details on HR.

My biggest concern with the game right now is the length. Games' length are built from a repetition of a gameplay mechanic - whether it's the shooting of enemies, driving around different levels, etc.

Heavy Rain seems to be about exploration and quick time events.

For Quantic Dream to weave a cinematic experience focused on exploration at that amazing level of quality we've seen thus far for a game more than 5-6 hours seems daunting imo.

The amount of cutscenes they would have to create (for the multiple paths) and the detailed environments (they're stunning), character animations/sequences leaves me concerned over the length (also knowing that it's a single-player offline experience).

However, even if it was 5-6 hours, I would be fine with that. And again, the length is really my only concern for now.

Did you read the article about the amount of dialogue? Yea the task was daunting and they went at it full force.

well, it really doesn't look as good as i just thought it would. it's not as crisp and clean as some of the scenes in the new cg resident evil movie, degeneration.

I didn't think much in the Degeneration movie was that great the CG wasn't nearly as good as it could have been, the animation was way to stiff and the dialogue felt forced...

In this game from what you have seen, there is more than meets the eye. Not only will this be revolutionary but it's graphics are ridiculously stunning. The animations and the details on everything are so close to life like it's scary. The name has nothing to do with making the game better or worse. I have never heard about so many people developing just one title. All the work everyone puts into this game will show very well. The concept is breath taking visuals and an adult themed story driven plot. And no that doesn't mean smut. Respect greatness.

Well it looks good, but that's the key. LOOKS. No one can know until the game hits shelves and it's played. So for me at this point it stands as a game that's sitting on the fence. Just like any game is before it's released.
