Heavy Rain Chronicles include a darker perspective

Heavy Rain is finally just around the corner, after four years of development. Quantic Dream’s David Cage has told that an episode of the Heavy Rain Chronicles downloadable content will be played from the perspective of the Origami Killer, somewhat flipping the script.

The other two episodes discussed in the interview are from the perspectives of Norman Jayden and Madison Paige, two playable characters from the main storyline. The Chronicles act as prequels which explain the back-stories of each major character in the game.

The first of two Chronicles packs is free to those who purchase the Collector’s Edition.

Heavy Rain hype machine: “Blows Uncharted 2 away”

Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain is just around the corner, due to arrive in late February.

As a result, the hype machine is in full swing, with a PR man claiming, “Graphically, it blows Uncharted 2 away.” Since Uncharted 2 is argued by many to have the best visuals of any console title, this is a bold statement.

Obviously, the gameplay between the titles is considerably different, with Heavy Rain promising a unique, atmospheric experience. After almost 4 years of waiting, it’ll be exciting to see how it turns out and how people respond.
