Beyond: Two Souls – the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive from Quantic Dream set for release this October — finally revealed an official box art.
Along with the above image, Derek Osgood from SCEA has this to say about the game’s cover art:
“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. What age do we want Jodie to be in the image? Do we include co-star Willem Dafoe? Do you show Jodie doing something dynamic or do we show her more at peace? These are all questions we had to ask ourselves throughout the process (among a great deal of other questions!).
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.”
More details will be revealed next week at the PlayStation Blog according to this post where the box art was revealed.
Quantic Dream’s last game was Heavy Rain in 2010, and Beyond: Two Souls is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated games this year for PlayStation 3. What do you think of the box art?
