BEYOND: Two Souls box art revealed
BEYOND: Two Souls has received an official cover art with a movie-vibe to it, in a bid to stand out in-stores. It releases this October, giving you the perfect excuse to stay in and get in your snuggie with hot chocolate to spend time with Ellen Page.
It’s PS3 exclusive and most likely Quantic Dream’s swan song before they begin developing a game for the PS4.
Sony and Quantic Dream hope that this box art expresses both the cinematic and emotional tone that the game is hoping to capture, following Jodie as she struggles through the games events.
Developing the pack front for a game like BEYOND is always an exciting challenge. BEYOND is so unique in the sense that it spans a character’s entire lifetime and takes place in such a vast array of locations and situations, that picking a singular image to represent the game effectively really does feel like digging for a needle in a haystack.
Stated Ross Alexander, European Product Manager of Sony, continuing to give his reasons for the choice,
Ultimately, we decided on the packshot you see above because it felt sophisticated, mature and different from most traditional game packaging, and it really captures the emotion Ellen Page conveyed in her performance as Jodie. The image of Jodie at peace in the eye of the storm really speaks to her constant battle with the incredible gift she’s been given.
We expect BEYOND to be brilliant just as Quantic Dream’s last title – Heavy Rain – was. Will you be picking up BEYOND this October? Let us know in the usual place below.
