Beyond: Two Souls & Heavy Rain Coming to PS4 in North America and Europe (Update)
A few hours after the original post went live, the Quantic Dream Twitter account confirmed that Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain on PlayStation 4 will make their way to North America:
Exact details digital/BDR will emerge later, but both titles will make it to North America as well, in one form or another!

Available as individual digital releases, and a two-game bundle both physically and digitally, Sony and Quantic Dream announced today that Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain are coming to the PlayStation 4, though no date was given.
In a surprising move, the two games “are coming to PlayStation 4 only for Europe and the PAL region,” which means North America might not see the PS4 versions at all.
European Brand Manager Penrose Tackie talked about the games, revealing that Beyond will allow you to play in chronological order on PS4:
For many players Heavy Rain was a defining moment in their gaming history, and for us it was definitely a milestone of the PS3 generation. The BAFTA and AIAS winning game helped establish what we like to call ‘interactive drama’ back in 2010, and loads of you have told us over the years how much the game’s story of a father who would do anything for his son moved you.
We’re really proud of Heavy Rain and we can’t wait for you to either play it again or experience it for the very first time.
Beyond: Two Souls
Later in the life of the PS3 came its spiritual sequel, Beyond: Two Souls. We loved the epic journey of Jodie Holmes, featuring an incredible performance from Ellen Page complemented by the wonderful talent of Willem Dafoe.
Jodie’s story is a tumultuous one, and one we know touched many of you at the time. On PS4 you will have the opportunity to experience that story played in chronological order, watching Jodie grow from a curious young girl to a powerful woman. We’re hoping you’ll get a kick out of this much-requested mode.
We’ll learn more about the PS4 versions of these games “soon.”
