One of Sony’s big reveals at last night’s E3 press conference was The Dark Sorcerer, a tech demo from the Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and the soon-to-be-released, Beyond: Two Souls.
Shown below is the complete 12-minute tech demo, which David Cage has explicitly said “will not be based on the demo.”
Here’s his full quote from the Official PlayStation Blog:
The PS4 engine used for Dark Sorcerer is only in its first iteration, and most of the features scheduled for the final version of the engine haven’t yet been implemented. This demo is only a first test that is well below the visual quality we hope to achieve in our next game. The next game will not be based on this demo, obviously (I know, we’re a bit weird), but on an idea that is completely different from what we’ve done to date. It’s incredibly exciting, and I wish I could tell you more… but I can’t.
Whatever the game will be, at least we know it will look good, no? What do you think of “The Dark Sorcerer” tech demo so far? Impressive or not good enough for next-gen?
