Quantic Dream's games have previously been exclusive to the PlayStation ecosystem, but they'll soon be making their way to the Epic Games Store. As pretty as they are, PC ports are always a crapshoot. The Quantic Dream release date for three of the company's PC games have been announced along with the dates you'll be able to get your hands on demos for each and every one of them.
Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit: Beyond Human, and Heavy Rain are all making their way to the Epic Games Store in the coming weeks and months. Here is the lowdown on the Quantic Dream release date for each of the three games and their demos:
Beyond: Two Souls PC Release Date - David Cage is a Golden GodBeyond: Two Souls PC Demo Release Date: June 27, 2019
Beyond: Two Souls PC Full Release Date: July 27, 2019
Pre-Order Beyond: Two Souls on the Epic Games Store
Beyond: Two Souls is the first video game to feature a motion-captured Ellen Page. As with some of David Cage's games (okay, all of David Cage's games), the plot gets pretty weird. You play a young girl with psychic powers who ends up in an institute that teaches her to use and control them. You'll then be sent out on secret missions to combat threats from other strange entities that regular law enforcement just can't handle. Also, you steal money from an ATM at one point because why not.
The game faced controversy when a nude character model based on Ellen Page was discovered in-game and disseminated on the Internet. The spread of these images eventually lead to the actress considering legal action against Sony and Quantic Dream.
Detroit: Become Human PC Release Date - The Final Quantic Dream Release DateDetroit: Become Human PC Demo Release Date: Late Summer 2019
Detroit: Become Human PC Full Release Date: Fall 2019
Pre-Order Detroit: Become Human on the Epic Games Store
Featuring more robotic performances than Mark Zuckerberg in Congress, Detroit: Become Human puts a modern spin on a classic tale. The androids of the world have to follow orders, but certain events can cause them to go rogue and gain autonomy. You take on the role of the police investigator android Connor — can you maintain your programming or will you fall victim to the temptations of going rogue?
Unfortunately, Detroit: Become Human is going to be the last game released on the Epic Games Store. You're going to have a bit of a wait if you were looking forward to playing this one!
Heavy Rain PC Release Date - Just the TipHeavy Rain PC Demo Release Date: May 24, 2019
Heavy Rain PC Full Release Date: June 24, 2019
Pre-Order Heavy Rain on the Epic Games Store
Finally, Heavy Rain is the third game to have its Quantic Dream release date announced. The demo will be coming out in just a few short days and will be the first title from the company available to play on PC in any form (short of an emulator, anyways). The game's full release comes just a few short days before the demo for Beyond: Two Souls is made available.
In Heavy Rain, father Ethan Mars barely managed to keep going after the death of his son Jason. Years later, his son Shaun is kidnapped by the Origami Killer, a serial killer who kidnaps young boys and murders them. While Ethan tries to save his son, the reporter Madison Paige and FBI Profiler Norman Jayden proceed with their own investigations into the disappearance. Each of the three characters has a chance to succeed at saving Shaun in their own way.
Each of these three games was pretty well-received on their initial release and they'll soon be available to PC Gamers for the first time. Don't forget that the Epic Mega Sale is going on right now; you can get a discount for each of these titles if you act before the sale ends in June.
