Heavy Rain European Boxart Revealed

29 Comments | posted

The boxart for Heavy Rain has been revealed, bringing it with the realisation that it won’t be too long until it’s 2010 and Quantic Dream has released their first PlayStation 3 game.

Heavy Rain will be out for the PS3 at some point during the first part of 2010, presumably in February, so Amazon.co.uk has taken the decision to début the game’s European boxart.

Of course, Sony hasn’t confirmed that this is Heavy Rain’s official boxart, but it’s certainly convincing and fits the game’s intriguing detective thriller premise; the search for the origami killer. On the other hand, Amazon.com’s is clearly filler.

Enjoy our Heavy Rain Gallery right after this link.

Oh and by the way, you’ll be hearing more about Heavy Rain very soon…

    Looks amazing! Can’t wait for this game, it’s my most anticipated of ’10. Absolutely adored Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy.

  • Jimmy

    Looks good, I did expect better though.

  • mantas

    still not sure about this game- I’m not sure this counts as a game in my book. Just seems like quick time events with very very good graphics. Gimmi god of war 3 anyday.

  • Name

    It’s not really new and/or interesting but it was on the french Amazon website since november.

  • ShurikenSpammer

    I’m hoping that they put a sequence in where you play as the Origami killer for a mission. Seeing the murders from the killers perspective.

    Box art looks great too!

  • Patrick Steen

    Mantas – I’ve played the game. You should get some hands-on impressions soon.

  • Nick

    That’s one of the best box arts I’ve ever seen. Seriously amazing.

  • David Macphail

    Very cool box art for a must – have game. There’s just so many awesome PS3 exclusives coming out next year.

  • K-grim

  • Dkenair

    I hope that god of war 3 box cover art that they showed in best buy was filler because i hate it lol but anyway nice boxart cant wait for the game.

  • Deedui69

    Crushing papers FTW!!! lol could not been helped, (sorry for my questionable humor if it irritates anyone), from what i get from this game in my point of view on what i saw as gameplay is just intriguing story telling and some quick/real time button smashing. I might be completely lost so some clarification would be very much appreciated.

    Thnx in advance

  • xino

    Yes the game has intriguing story with nice twist. And no this isn’t just button smashing QTE. In fact QTE are good! If you’ve played Shenmue you’ll appreciate it.

    The game plays like a movie, you make certain actions with QTE inputs.
    Like a girl is being attacked by a man in a house. You see a QTE that says R1 to pick up the knife, if you miss, something else will happen. Like the girl could just run upstairs, and more QTE for survival or story option will occur.

    Until the player dies, you’ll experience another characters life linked to the Origami killer.

    This game is one of the unique games ever created, best part is using that CIA glasses. You don’t get this sort of unique gameplay in games nowadays.

    The Box art is amazing! the game will surely be great…
    I am still hoping they fix the framerate and face expressions a little bit though, made the game a little awkward to me… ^^’
    but it’s great anyways, isn’t it? =D

  • Dr. Moogle

    man its just like a chick with a tank top…..a portly man with a gun…looking like a mobster

    some guy with shades on looking mysterious…and just some fuzzy bastard


    but the US is getting this tho….Playstation blog said they would let us have a high quality pic of this for us to print out or something….its better than nothing i guess

  • Dr. Moogle
