Watch a 35-minute reel taken from "Beyond: Two Souls," presented at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27.
With both Ellen Page ("Inception") and "Beyond: Two Souls" director David Cage appearing at a Tribeca Talk discussion, a lengthy clip from the game was shown to illustrate Cage's latest in a quest to unite cinematic presentation with an emotional narrative core.
As such, it shows Page as a homeless young woman, both blessed and cursed with a mysterious gift, and some of her encounters on the street -- begging and busking with a downtempo rendition of Beck's "Lost Cause," rescuing a friend from thugs, acting as a makeshift matron, and pulling her comrades from a burning building.
The game is due on PlayStation 3 from October 8 this year.
"Beyond Two Souls" at the Tribeca Film Festival is archived at ustream.tv/beyond; a shorter trailer, clocking in at under 3 minutes, is available from youtu.be/c9D1N-MHwog
