Beyond: Two Souls is what director David Cage likes to call “interactive drama.” It’s like a movie where the audience gets to choose what the protagonist does next. It’s also why it gets a TV spot that feels like it’s advertising a movie instead of a game.
Sony today shared the extended TV spot it will begin to air in the coming weeks for Beyond: Two Souls. It’s their last big PS3 release before the launch of the PS4, and Sony obviously wants to make sure it makes an impact.
Beyond: Two Souls is the followup to 2010’s Heavy Rain – a game that went on to become a critical and commercial success. If Beyond can follow in its footsteps, Sony will be able to boast that two of its first-party studios’ games – the other being The Last Of Us – did well in 2013. It’s rare for that to happen so you can probably understand why Sony is pushing this latest title so aggressively.
