Beyond: Two Souls is going from strength to strength. First, we learned that Ellen Page would be involved. Then, Willem Dafoe was added to the cast. Now, blurring the lines even more between film and game, the PlayStation exclusive has been hand-picked as an Official Selection by the Tribeca Film Festival, following in the footsteps of L.A. Noire in 2011.
The game will take pride of place at a screening at the festival, where Sony will show off a shiny new one-hour segment of Beyond, plus a new major trailer and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the game. There's also a Q&A panel with both game director David Cage and actress Ellen Page discussing just how Beyond is "pushing the boundaries of storytelling".
Derek Osgood from Sony explains:
The entire team here is hugely excited that Tribeca is recognizing the powerful story of BEYOND, its star-studded cast, and the stunning visual technology that have contributed to the game’s uniquely cinematic experience.
For those who can't get to New York, the event will be livestreamed on the PlayStation.Blog.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
