In the Beyond: Two Souls “Advanced Experiments” DLC, Jodie runs around in a timed experiment with elements familiar to Portal fans.
Sony recently released the “Advanced Experiments” DLC to Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls. The DLC has been available as a free download for people who bought the Special Edition of the game exclusively from GameStop. For those who didn’t buy this edition, the DLC is priced at $4.99. Sony released a trailer yesterday for “Advanced Experiments,” and it looks a bit like Valve’s Portal.
In the short chapter of DLC, Jodie and her linked entity Aiden have 30 minutes to clear a series of physical challenges. The exercise is to examine Jodie and Aiden’s problem-solving skills in a specially designed facility. Jodie will travel through different rooms to advance. However, Jodie won’t be thinking with portals. It appears she’ll be doing more physical work such as climbing, jumping, crawling, and avoiding fire, but there also lots of blocks. The white-orange-blue color scheme even looks like something out of Portal. Jodie also does not speak in the “Advanced Experiments” content. There’s no one like GLaDOS making silly insults at you as you progress, though.
Quantic Dream boasts an additional 30 minutes of gameplay through the DLC, but 30 minutes is actually the time limit. Judging by some let’s play videos, people can generally finish the DLC in about 15 to 20 minutes. The DLC was first released earlier this month. Beyond: Two Souls launched in October exclusive to PS3.
