Beyond: Two Souls is Ten Hours Long
Quantic Dream head David Cage has revealed that the upcoming narrative-focused Beyond: Two Souls will last for ten hours.
Speaking at an event for the game at the Tribeca Film Festival (via Gamespot), Cage revealed the figure after a 35 minute clip of the title’s “Homeless” level was shown.
Because people wanted to see the end, they wanted to know what would happen next.
The figure comes after mock scripts for the game were sent to media outlets last week, revealing the title’s narrative spans over 2,000 pages.
Cage also revealed he’s confident that most gamers will finish the title, as his last game Heavy Rain had a higher than average completion rate amongst gamers; typically about 20 percent of players see a game through to its end, though for Heavy Rain this number was about 75 percent.
In his opinion, this is down to the story-heavy nature of the game. He explained, “Because people wanted to see the end, they wanted to know what would happen next…all this was very important.”
Alongside the 35 minute clip, a new trailer for the game was debuted at Tribeca, which you can check out below.
