It has often been rumoured that Quantic Dream would be bringing their narrative driven games Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain to Playstation 4, but it has now been officially confirmed on the Playstation Blog. It was initially rumoured to only be coming to Europe, but Quantic Dream has since confirmed it will be arriving in North America too.
The games are going to be getting individual digital releases plus a digital and physical release as a two game bundle.
The following details about the games were revealed on the Playstation Blog:
“For many players Heavy Rain was a defining moment in their gaming history, and for us it was definitely a milestone of the PS3 generation. The BAFTA and AIAS winning game helped establish what we like to call ‘interactive drama’ back in 2010, and loads of you have told us over the years how much the game’s story of a father who would do anything for his son moved you.
We’re really proud of Heavy Rain and we can’t wait for you to either play it again or experience it for the very first time.
Later in the life of the PS3 came its spiritual sequel, Beyond: Two Souls. We loved the epic journey of Jodie Holmes, featuring an incredible performance from Ellen Page complemented by the wonderful talent of Willem Dafoe.
Jodie’s story is a tumultuous one, and one we know touched many of you at the time. On PS4 you will have the opportunity to experience that story played in chronological order, watching Jodie grow from a curious young girl to a powerful woman. We’re hoping you’ll get a kick out of this much-requested mode.”
I loved the games and am super excited to be able to revisit them, especially Beyond: Two Souls – the acting and story of that game were phenomenal. Expect to hear more details soon.
