E3 2012: Quantic Dream’s New IP ‘Beyond: Two Souls’ Gets A Debut Trailer

We recently showed you the brilliant short/tech demo Kara by innovative game studio Quanic Dream. It showcased the amazing technical capabilities of the PS3 and the story telling prowess of developer to amazing effect, all that was left was for Sony to announce what new game they were actually working on.

Leading off their 2012 E3 Conference, Sony announced that Quantic Dream has been working on an all new IP, Beyond: Two Souls. This game uses incredible character based graphics to tell the tale of Jodi Holmes who seems to be able to communicate with a powerful entity.

The developers were very quick to point out that they went out of their way to cast a top quality actress to be the lead in the game, Ellen Page. This emphasis on character and acting is a move that we are going to come to expect from Quantic Dream who already put out a character over game-play game, Heavy Rain.

At the Sony conference a debut trailer was showcased, that really shows off the character animation. The meat of the trailer is a scene from early in the game where Jodi is being interrogated by a small town sheriff. We then get some impressive, but quick glimpses of the action in the game.

Check out the full debut trailer after the jump.

Sony has a lot of interesting exclusives coming down the pipe this year, and Beyond might have just jumped to near the top of that list.
