Beyond: Two Souls Now Features Willem Dafoe and an October Release

Ellen Page isn’t the only celebrity Quantic Dream was able to get their hands on as long-time actor, Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Beyond: Two Souls. Dafoe will play Nathan Dawkins, a scientist who helps Jodie analyze her supernatural abilities; much different from the antagonistic characters we’ve seen before.

Additionally, Sony has also announced the release date to be October 8, 2013. With this out there, the mid-November timeframe that’s being rumored for the Playstation 4’s launch is becoming more reasonable as Sony wouldn’t release a significant title such as Beyond: Two Souls right alongside its next console (at least you’d hope not). Regardless, anyone pre-ordering the game will automatically be upgraded to the Special Edition which includes a steelbook case, behind the scenes videos, the soundtrack, a dynamic theme and PSN avatars.
