Beyond: Two Souls to be streamed this Saturday night

UPDATE: Watch 35 minutes of footage from the Tribeca Film Festival.

UPDATE: A hefty chunk of in-game Beyond: Two Souls footage - shown at the Tribeca Film Festival last weekend - is now available to view online.

The 35-minute clip introduces Ellen Page's character, Jodie, who is on the run and living on the streets.

Beyond director David Cage mentioned at the event that the finished game would be 10 hours long, Polygon reported.

It's hard to tell exactly how much of the footage shows human-controlled gameplay. There appear to be sections where Jodie can explore the environment, and make conversation choices similar to that of Cage's previous work Heavy Rain. Cut-scenes are peppered with a few "shake the controller" QTE moments, too.

More impressive is the level of detail in the game's animations, the large cast of characters and the performance of Page herself. Watch the footage below.

ORIGINAL STORY: Sony will be premiering an hour's worth of content from Quantic Dreams' upcoming supernatural thriller Beyond: Two Souls as it debuts at the Tribeca Film Festival this Saturday in New York. The best part is you don't have to be in New York to see it as we'll have a livestream of it right here on Eurogamer.

The event begins at 7 p.m. EST - i.e. midnight GMT - this Saturday night, 27th April.

Beyond: Two Souls was chosen as an Official Selection by the Tribeca Film Festival organisers, which is impressive as it's not even a film. It does look like one, though, plus it stars A-list talent like Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, which I guess makes it close enough to a movie.

The event will also contain a Q&A panel with game creator David Cage and actors Ellen Page, Kadeem Hardison and Eric Winter.

To see the surge of new content, come back here Saturday night and watch that nifty embedded box below do its thing.
