Willem Dafoe to star in Beyond: Two Souls alongside Ellen Page

Famed Hollywood actor to be featured in psychological action thriller

Willem Dafoe, star of movies such as Spider-man and Auto Focus, will be starring in Beyond: Two Souls, the latest title from developer Quantic Dream.

Dafoe will be starring alongside Ellen Page, who appeared in films such as Juno and Super.

Page has the lead role of Jodie Holmes, a woman who possesses supernatural powers through her link to an invisible entity.

The supporting role of Nathan Dawkins, an enigmatic scientist working for a government division studying paranormal activities, will be played by Dafoe.

A central theme in Beyond: Two Souls is Dawkins’ professional curiosity in Jodie, driven by personal tragedy.

Quantic Dream writer and director, David Cage, said the subtleties of Dafoe’s performance are capable of fully realising the game’s “rich and evocative narrative.”

“Ellen and Willem were cast for their immense talent and they bring with them the same passion and dedication you would see in the movies they star in,” he said.

“Never before have I seen this calibre of acting performance in a video game.”

This is not the first time Quantic Dream has featured renowned talent, with the studio’s breakout hit, 1999’s Omikron: The Nomad Soul, being notable for its inclusion of the digital likeness of David Bowie.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
