In Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, French developer Quantic Dream gave us two brilliant video game narratives. And while the games have been criticised by some as being ‘really long QTEs (Quick Time Events)’ rather than actual games, for the most part they reviewed well and many fans still hold a torch for them.
So many fans still love the games, it seems, that both Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain will be re-released on PS4. Sony confirmed this all the way back in June but they finally have release dates, pricing and more information on what the re-releases will offer. Find out more after the break.
Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain PS4 Release Dates
Beyond: Two Souls is the first of the duo to get the PS4 re-release treatment. Beyond: Two Souls follows Jodie Holmes as she deals with her supernatural connection to an invisible entity named Aiden. The game follows her young life, her military career and her dealings with Dr. Dawkins. With everybody’s favourite tiny Canadian Ellen Page in the game as Jodie and Willem Dafoe as Dr. Dawkins, the performances are top notch in this one.
The PS4 re-release also includes some features not seen in the original PS3 version, such as “enhanced 1080p graphics including motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects, as well as improved lighting and shadows” as well as the ability to play the game in chronological order. It also comes with the Enhanced Experiments DLC. Beyond: Two Souls will be released digitally on PS4 on Nov. 24 (North America) and Nov. 26 (Europe), and it will cost $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.
Sadly, much less is known about Heavy Rain on PS4 other than the fact that it exists and it will be coming to PS4 on March 1 (North America) and March 2 (Europe). Sony also says that buying Beyond: Two Souls digitally will get you a discount for Heavy Rain as well, while in Europe you can buy The Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain Collection at retail from March 2 (Europe) and March 4 (UK).
