Prepare For A Downpour Of Info And Media For Heavy Rain
We've only seen snippets of the game in action, and while we do have a decent amount of information, we haven't seen a big unveiling that drops everyone's jaws.
Well, this should be the week. Not only are we told to expect a whole horde of details to arrive on the PlayStation Blog on Friday, but it seems GameTrailers TV will break the media embargo by a few hours and toss up some brand new footage of Heavy Rain on Thursday, May 21. The last time we saw any video of this game was at last year's Leipzig convention; you can check it out if you haven't seen it already. Spike TV's website says that "GTTV gets a behind the scenes look at the cinematic PS3 exclusive Heavy Rain," and it doesn't get much clearer than that, so mark your calendars! Many are hoping that Quantic Dream's ambitious title will not only utilize the PS3's immense capabilities, but will also provide gamers with a very unique style of gameplay. Those of you who remember the likes of Indigo Prophecy will recall the emphasis on story and atmosphere...you can most certainly expect the same from Heavy Rain. We'd just like a more robust and engaging gameplay mechanic, that's all.
So anyway, keep your eyes and ears peeled this week for anything new concerning this highly anticipated exclusive. And don't forget that it could make a big splash at E3, too!
