Beyond: Two Souls will hit stores on October 8th, now with more Willem Dafoe; kinda makes me feel like Riverdancing

Warning: if you thought Dafoe looked creepy earlier – and, be honest, you did – Dafoe plus motion-capture markers all over his face is practically nightmare-inducing.

But don’t let that distract you from the main news – we finally have a release date for Beyond! October 8th puts it just before the inevitable holiday madness; which, with any luck, will help it carve out some space for itself in consumer’s minds (and wallets).

UPDATE – CVG has in-game footage of Dafoe doing his thing, which I’ve embedded after the break.

Quantic Dream + Ellen Page = Beyond: Two Souls. (Also, profit.)

So this is what Kara‘s going to be when she grows up.

As  David Cage reveals in the admittedly-long-but-still-extremely-watchable video above, Beyond: Two Souls is the name of Quantic Dream’s new project. From the included cinematic, it looks like it’s a return to the supernatural element that so dominated Indigo Prophecy; also, Beyond definitely looks like it’s more action-oriented than Heavy Rain was, but only time (and a gameplay trailer) will tell.

Ellen Page will play the part of Jodie Holmes, the protagonist; and while that looks like a very promising setup indeed, I can’t help but wish for some kind of role for Valorie Curry, who was jaw-dropping as Kara.

With no word on a release date yet, all we can do is wait. And watch that trailer repeatedly. There are worse ways to pass the time.
