'Beyond:Two Souls' Making of

The game will miss out on long-time Quantic Dream collaborator Normand Corbeil.

As 'Beyond: Two Souls' approaches its October release date, much has been revealed since the game's introduction last year. With both Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe on board and David Cage at the helm, much has been made about how close several details are to a film production. With the game's soundtrack team of Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe explaining their approach in a new video, the game continues to rack up film production comparisons.

Originally, long-time Quantic Dream collaborator Normand Corbeil was set to compose the game's soundtrack. The Canadian composer had worked on both 'Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit' and 'Heavy Rain,' which was awarded a BAFTA for Original Music. Normand had begun work on 'Beyond: Two Souls,' when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was forced to withdraw from the project and ultimately passed away this past January.

Of course, as the game's production continued, it would be hard to argue that Normand's replacements are lacking in credibility. And their capabilities will be tested by the range that 'Beyond: Two Souls' appears to require as it follows Ellen Page's character, Jodie, through a turbulent life destroyed by an incredible power.
