** [[spoiler: General [=McGrath=], for his part, earns a solid punch to the face from Ryan for attempting to put Jodie in a permanent coma as well trying to "conquer" the Infraworld despite the apocalyptic levels of danger involved, but he survives the events of "The Black Sun" thanks to the efforts of Jodie and her friends, and it's heavily implied in the epilogues that he, along with the CIA, is still hard at work on trying to fully access the other side, having learned nothing from the experience.]]

** To a greater extent, while some souls linger in reality for a number of reasons, most of those who die seem to pass on directly to the Infraworld, which, despite the fact that it contains certain malicious entities, is mostly portrayed as a paradise without limits. Meaning that the majority of the dead end up in what is essentially heaven, regardless of how good or evil they may have been in life.

** "The Experiment" always ends up in a panicked CooldownHug from Nathan, no matter how obediently you try to play Aiden. This was fixed in the PS4 version, with Kathleen being much less shaken and Cole simply telling Jodie that the experiment is over, although Jodie's "It'll never be over" line remains.

** There are times where Aiden can wander off during the levels, and it often hints or outright gives you tips for what to do/what is going to happen in the story. The two major examples are [[spoiler:during the mental hospital visit to see Norah, where Aiden can go into several rooms and be confronted by mental patients who can see him (as well as one who tells Jodie directly to be prepared to sacrifice her life to save the world), and the level immediately after, where Aiden can go through the giant metal doors to find the lab where Nathan is keeping his wife and daughter captive.]] *** [[spoiler:Another example is during the bar scene, where, using Aiden, you can eavesdrop on the two men conversing about raping Jodie long before the game moves to that point and allow the player to escape the graphical scene.]] * ForegoneVictory: There is no way to get an actual game over. If Jodie fails or gets captured, all that happens is an alternate escape scenario takes place which puts you back on the plotted line. You '''will''' beat the game. It is, however, possible to fail the last QuickTimeEvent and receive a bad ending. You still ''technically'' beat the game, but the ending isn't really much better than simply dying at any point, simply consisting of Jodie monologuing over a shadow background about how she failed and the world ended.

''Beyond: Two Souls'' is the SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'' (''Indigo Prophecy'' in some countries) and ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' by Creator/QuanticDream, revealed at [[UsefulNotes/ElectronicEntertainmentExpo E3]] 2012. The story, covering the span of fifteen years, centers on a young woman named Jodie Holmes (modeled after and played by Creator/EllenPage) who tries to uncover the mystery of a strange {{poltergeist}}-like presence serving as her protector as well as Nathan Dawkins (Creator/WillemDafoe), a researcher who serves as her surrogate father. The central topic of the game is what happens to one after death. Like its immediate predecessor, ''Beyond: Two Souls'' is a UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 exclusive.
