David Cage's Beyond: Two Souls has been one of my most anticipated titles ever since my first glimpse of it during E3 2012, and now it's confirmed I'll get to share the experience with a friend.
Revealed during gamescom, the Quantic Dream founder announced the game will support two-player cooperative play. Players will pass control between the game's two characters Jodi and Aiden with a simple press of the triangle button.
Additionally announced is the iOS and Android app titled "Beyond Touch." The free app allows for a simpler form of control that is aimed at reeling in more casual players. There are no virtual buttons and no on-screen prompts and the game is automatically placed into easy mode when in the app is in use.
Beyond: Two Souls launches exclusively on PlayStation 3 on October 8.
