It all starts with Beyond: Two Souls, the paranormal adventure starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe. Although you may know and love the actors, you may not know that Beyond was originally released in 2013 for PS3. This year’s release is a refurbished adaptation of the 2013 version.
If you love the work of French designer David Cage, as we do, and his Quantic Dream studio, here’s the good news– The developer’s two most recent games are getting enhanced editions for the PlayStation 4.
The PlayStation 4 release’s major enhancements include downloadable content and improved visuals. Page stars as Jodie Holmes, a young woman with supernatural abilities due to her link with an invisible force. Willem Dafoe plays a powerful Dr. Hawkins, a major role in Holmes’ story.
The boosted version will also feature improved 1080p visuals, and come with the extra DLC chapter. Beyond: Two Souls‘ 2015 release will also let you play the game in chronological order, if you wish. This differs from the 2013 version as the original featured a purposely disjointed, nonlinear narrative. But the best part of all of this is that it launches incredibly soon! You can play Beyond on you PS4 on November 24th, 2015 in your own home for just $29.99.
Beyond: Two Souls has been voted better graphically and technologically than most popular PS4 games this year like: Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us: Remastered, Bloodborne, Batman: Arkham Night, Destiny, Guitar Hero Live, Fallout 4, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
This remastered version will be available as a digital download. Quantic Dream also announced that the predecessor of Beyond, Heavy Rain, the 2010 crime thriller will be getting a similar update expected to launch on March 1st, 2016. Purchases of Beyond will be able to buy Heavy Rain at discounted price when it arrives.

After getting slammed by storms and blamed for late deliveries last year, UPS has invested $5M in making things run more smoothly this time around.
