Beyond: Two Souls New Footage Shows Aiden's Capabilities
David Cage give us a sneak peak of Aiden's powers in this new gameplay demo from Beyond: Two Souls.
At Gamescom 2012, David Cage decided to give a lengthy gameplay teaser of his upcoming game, Beyond: Two Souls. The new gameplay footage shows Jodie Homes being chased and later cornered by the police, followed by a show of power by the Ghostly entity, Aiden, capable of turning tables.
The ghostly entity which can be summoned during the game in times of difficulty is attached to Jodie through an invisible cord and cannot wander more than a few metres. It comes with the standard ghost features i.e invisibility, flying, and go through matter or objects. According to David Cage, Aiden's powers and abilities will depend on Jodie's mental, physical health or how old she is at that moment in the game which will encompass 15 years of her life's struggles.
Aiden can also interact with the environment by pushing objects, causing sparkes or flipping cars, that's not all, Aiden can choke enemies or possess them causing mayhem and chaos by turning them against each other.
The gameplay demo shows how players can use Aiden to get out of vulnerable situations using the help of Aiden as it seems the authorities are hell bent on capturing Jodie, also evident in previous gameplay videos. If you're wondering why the AI seems so tame it's probably because it was toned down to show all the abilties of Aiden explicitly.
Beyond: Two Souls is set to release exclusively on the PS3, early 2013.
