Both of game designer David Cage’s cinematic, interactive dramas are coming to PlayStation 4. His telepathic tale Beyond: Two Souls, originally released in 2013, will make its way to the PlayStation Store next week. It will be followed by a port of Heavy Rain, where players will once again be faced with the horrors of the Origami Killer on March 1st, 2016.
The games are known for their dark, choice-driven storytelling and high production values, with Beyond: Two Souls boasting a stellar voice cast headed by Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe.
While not a lot is known about the update of Heavy Rain, next week’s Beyond: Two Souls remaster will feature several new features to enhance the experience. These include 1080p graphics with motion blur effects as well as improved lighting and shadows, improved controls for action sequences, and use of the DualShock 4 Speaker.
Another main addition will be that once you have completed the game in its original non-linear form, you can then replay the game in chronological order—something that is very reminiscent of the hidden Easter egg found on the DVD of the similarly narratively-jumbled Memento.
As well as Christopher Nolan, the remaster has also appeared to have taken notes from Telltale Games, with a new feature allowing players to look back at their choices at the end of each scene and see how they compared to other players.
If you wish to revisit Beyond: Two Souls in all its new and improved glory, look out for it on the PlayStation Store from November 24th for $29.99 in North America and in Europe from November 26th for £24.99/€29.99.
