Beyond: Two Souls is an interactive drama and action-adventure game. It was initially released in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and after two-years for PlayStation 4. After a long six years, it is making its debut on PC.
The spiritual thriller Beyond was developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Entertainment Company. The game can be found on Epic Games store for $20. The main character of the game is a girl named Jodie, who is voice-acted by Ellen Page. Ellen Page has provided justice to this role by enacting so gracefully. The other character is Aiden, an incorporeal entity which will be with Jodie throughout the game.
The PC version for Microsoft Windows was released on 22nd July 2019. The player has to control Jodie through in-game environments or the player can switch to control Aiden instead anytime in the game. There exists a psychic link between Jodie and Aiden and the kind of decisions they make together makes this interesting.
While growing up, Jodie is learning to control Aiden. Their shared telekinetic powers, she gets into trouble a lot, so it is hard for her to live a normal life. Her powers allow her to possess people’s minds and manipulate objects.
The game’s plot engages you from starting till the start feels super-exciting when some good decision is made in the game and player is being rewarded for that but sometimes, the player has to suffer the consequences for the bad decisions. The game is more like a thriller movie’s plot going on. This is the game which was premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival where the film festival recognized a video game, thanks to the great storyline.
The game progresses in the non-linear fashion, keeps going forth and back and hangs the player anticipating for what will happen next. The game will pick up the pace when the CIA will force Jodie to join the organization to use her powers to fight against enemies and organizations.
Quantic dream is going to release more games like Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human on the windows soon. The releases will come somewhere in upcoming 2019.
