GamesCom: Heavy Rain will focus more on emotions

  • Posted August 18th, 2009 at 18:52 EDT by Adam Dolge

When Heavy Rain is released next year we'll get a completely new gaming experience, explained David Cage from Quantic Dream. Cage showed off the game at GamesCom, highlighting some of the four main characters, including a private detective named Scott Shelby and a man named Ethan.

Ethan lost his oldest son in a crowd, and his kid was hit by a car, Cage explained. Ethan must confront his own fears when his son goes missing. The idea is based on Cage losing his son once in a shopping mall.

The game is said to be like no other title currently available. It uses the PlayStation 3 in new ways, and is not your typical game that features repetitive action. Instead, the game focuses strongly on emotions.
