Beyond: Two Souls will launch for PlayStation 3 on October 8 in North America and during October in Europe, Sony has announced.

Willem Dafoe, known for his role as The Green Goblin in the original Spider-Man film, will appear as a character in the Quantic Dream-developed title. A new trailer released today reveals his role as Nathan Dawkins, a government scientist who works with main character Jodie to analyse her powers.

Consumers who pre-order Beyond at GameStop or EB Games will receive an “exclusive 30-minute playable additional scene” download code, and a free upgrade to the game’s special edition, which includes an exclusive Steelbook, behind the scenes features, the game soundtrack, a PlayStation 3 dynamic theme, and a PlayStation Network avatar bundle.

Watch the new trailer and a behind-the-scenes video below. View two new screenshots and a shot of the special edition Steelbook at the gallery.

    Finally!!! This year is just too amazing.

    It’s funny in all the news I’m reading about this that people are always using Spider-Man as Dafoe’s role of note instead of something like Platoon in which he was nominated for an Academy Award. :p

    • KingNigma

      No matter how good a movie Platoon could be (haven’t watched it myself) Spider-Man is just way too popular and modern for Platoon to be what people are most familiar with Dafoe.

      He was awesome as Hell in Boondock Saints.

  • DarthBrian

    *sigh* just read the part about GameStop getting exclusive DLC. Fuck you, GameStop and Sony. Fuck you. >__<

      So while youre huffing and puffing I’ll be busy enjoying my copy of Beyond with a sweet steelbook case that I gladly reserved at Gamestop and purchased on day 1.

      Some like having great games on day 1 with the knowledge that their reserve copy is waiting on them at the local GS and others just like sour grapes.

    LOL… I got trolled…
    It goes like this;

    Willem: Hello Joey. My name is Nathan.
    Me: Nathan Drake?
    Willem: Nathan Dawkins. *Grin*
    Me: (0_0)

    Another excellent actor to add to the cast.

  • Locksus

    This game has a great cast of actors and actresses so far. Looking forward to this.

    Looks GREAT so far! MUCH more my speed than something like Heavy Rain! I just wish they didnt make Ellen Page nearly bald with that fade :( I’m not a fan of the fade on females. She looks adorable as the little girl, but then it goes to adult Elly with the fade and its just :( (Personal opinion)

    I mean, it wont effect me getting the game or whatever, because Elly’s a FANTASTIC actor, I just wish they woulda left her appearance more, I dunno, HERS.

    Very cool. Looking forward to this.

    amazing David cage done it again…im pretty excited about this…david cage’s stories are always amazing ..im pretty sure the story in this game gonna be epic …im kinda mad about DLC exclusive to gamestop …they should make it to all retailers ..i like amazon<3 i hate gamestop -sigh- anyway im happy about the game ^-^

  • http://gematsu.com/ Zero

    Remember when Cage denied this back at comic-con 2012? He said something like, “Nice Try!”

    Looks like that rumor has been true for a long time. I’m happy it was true, since I really like Dafoe.

  • Prodigy-X

    Willem Dafoe Awesome

  • camaro300zx

    Has anybody else noticed a trend with Steelbooks lately??

  • Budgiecat

    Looks like it can compete with some launch PS4 titles…

  • KurisuMakise

    Did I mention Ellen Page is my heroine? No? Well now you know. Adding Willem Dafoe to the mix is just icing on what I hope is a well baked cake. Don’t let me down Quantic, my preorder is going to go in soon.

    *gasp* Elias <3

    Sweet.

    The animation is fantastic, can’t wait to see what Quantic Dream does on PS4.

  • artemisthemp

    Hope the upgrade offer also extend to EU and same with Gamestop exclusive content, even though I think, it would be better to offer the 30 minutes Story as Pre-order bonus

  • Dean Winchester

    Game of the year right here folks. By a country mile.

    I said it before and I’ll be saying it many more times.
    One of the many benefits of being a Playstation gamer. Every time you turn around there is an exclusive GotY contender being released.

    Gonna be a busy year.

    • Locksus

      Try to choose, buddy. A little while ago you said that TLOU would be GotY, and now you said this would be.

      So, which one is it?

      • Dean Winchester

        I also mentioned this and about 5 other games in the very next comment.

        Either way when all is said and done the game that garners the most GotY recognition in 2013 will have an “Only on Playstation” banner across the front of its case.

        I mean, do I really have to choose one or the other or ther or the other ad hominem?
        Its not like that other system where only one exclusive comes out per year thats worth a damn and thats only if youre lucky!

        I hope thats not offensive for anyone. Thems just the breaks.

    Ok so Dafoe isn’t the World’s best Actor but hey he sure did a great job in the BOONDOCK SAINTS.
