The official Playstation Blog revealed today that Quantic Dream’s upcoming PS3 exclusive, “Beyond: Two Souls,” will star Willem Dafoe. The game, from the creators of “Heavy Rain” and “Indigo Prophecy,” is already set to star Ellen Page and now Dafoe (of “Spider-Man” and “Boondock Saints” fame) has been confirmed to join the cast. The Oscar nominated actor will be lending both his likeness and voice to “Beyond: Two Souls” which is set to release later this year. The announcement for the Quantic Dream title introduced Willem Dafoe as follows.
Today, we’re pleased to announce that Ellen will be joined by another Oscar nominee in Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man) who will star as Nathan Dawkins, a government scientist who works with Jodie to analyse her powers. At a later stage we’ll have lots more to reveal on the interplay between Nathan and Jodie in the game (no spoilers today!), but suffice to say they form a compelling bond and together deliver some of the most unique and powerful scenes yet seen in gaming.
“Beyond: Two Souls” will be a Playsation 3 exclusive tile that is currently set for release on October 8 from developer Quantic Dream.
