Quantic Dreams Founder David Cage has revealed that Heavy Rain will allow players to continue through the main storyline even if the game’s female protagonist is killed.
Speaking at the Games Convention last month, Cage commented, “I can’t really tell you too much about what the story’s about or how it’s going to work with the characters, all I can tell you that your character - the main character - can die, and the story will continue.”
“You can continue to play, without this character, of course.”
Asked whether or not this meant gamers would be transferred to a side-story, Cage replied, “No, no,” adding, “It’s one big story.”
Heavy Rain will be released exclusively for PlayStation 3 in 2009.
