The Difference Between US And EU Versions Of Beyond: Two Souls

A 5 to 10 second difference in scenes apparently.

Beyond- Two Souls
David Cage may be trying to open the outside world’s eyes to the artistic possibilities of video games, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t incorporate a fair share of violence. Yesterday on the PlayStation Blog“>EU PlayStation Blog, product manager Ross Alexander responded to a question regarding Quantic Dream’s upcoming Beyond: Two Souls.

Here is the original question, posed by user VooDoo341:

“What’s the content difference between the US version and EU version of Beyond Two Souls as it has now been censored in Germany? Is the US game now longer? Does it affect the story? Plus if a game is censored in one country in the EU why does that censorship apply to other countries in Europe?”

And Alexander’s response:

“There are only two amends between the EU and US versions of the game, amounting to about 5-10 seconds of gameplay that’s not been removed, just edited slightly to be in line with a PEGI 16 rating.

“For Beyond we wanted to make the game available to as many people as possible, hence applying for a PEGI 16 rating. The 5-10 seconds I mention above would have upped our rating to a PEGI 18, so it made perfect sense to make these two VERY minimal changes to get our planned 16 rating.

“I can assure you that this does not affect the game’s story at all, and that if you didn’t know these scenes had been amended, you wouldn’t even notice.”

What exactly was changed? You can head here for more info on the same, but beware of spoilers to occurrences in the game. Beyond: Two Souls is set to release exclusively for PlayStation on October 8th in North America and October 11th in Europe.
