Beyond: Two Souls PS4 Version Listed on Swiss Retail Sites
Two listings on Swiss online retail sites have lent more credence to the rumors of a PlayStation 4 port of Quantic Dream’s PS3-exclusive Beyond: Two Souls.
Swiss sites Alcom and World of Games each listed a PS4 version of the action-adventure game yesterday, CVG reports. Both sites have since removed the listings. Alcom and WoG are not related companies, and do not share product databases, making the two listings entirely separate.
In March, Quantic Dream’s Guillaume de Fondaumiere revealed that the developer was working on a PS4 game, but stated, “whatever we’re working on PS4 is not going to resemble what we’re doing on PS3,” stressing a departure from their previous efforts, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Rumors of a PS4 port of Beyond have swirled since April, however, when a NeoGAF member called attention to a Quantic Dream programmer’s illustration of the Beyond: Two Souls control scheme superimposed on a DualShock 4 controller.
Beyond: Two Souls was a moderately well-received game, with critics pointing out its muddy, absurd story and lack of interactivity and character development as major weaknesses. Its visual presentation, however, received universal praise, and Beyond is viewed as one of the best looking games of the generation. A generational upgrade to the already gorgeous game would be a sight to behold, and it’s looking more and more like it’s one we’ll eventually get to see.
