A story that will sweep you away

A story that will sweep you away

Heavy Rain lurks within the dark corners of the noir thriller genre, creating a tense drama that grips you all the way to its climax. Make no mistake, this is strictly for adults, combining mature themes and evocative scenes to stir your emotions. Like a brilliant movie, Heavy Rain's tale of human despair and triumph takes you on a journey - and how it ends is up to you.

The Origami Killer is still at large, plaguing lives with grisly murders, and as you're introduced to the four main characters of the game, they become the latest to be affected by the killer's destructive path. Can you uncover the true identity of the criminal before more lives are put in danger?

Murky motivations

Who do you play as?

Any of your four characters can die if you make the wrong decisions in Heavy Rain - and if they do, it doesn't necessarily mean the game is over...

The broken father

As the first character you're introduced to, Mars cuts a sombre figure, suffering from reality bending post-traumatic blackouts.

He doesn't start off that way - after a well crafted introduction to his pleasant life, you get a first hand close-up of the fatal tragedy which destroys him and his family. From there the game puts his fate in your hands. Can you bring him out of the rain?

The world-weary private eye

Shelby's quick-fire speech plays off his ever present asthma and slightly reckless old school detective practices. There's a pain lurking behind his fatigued façade. It’s up to you whether he finds peace or not…

The dedicated FBI profiler

Jayden's systematic and high-tech approach comes with an occasionally nervous patter thanks to a dangerously addictive personality. He’s talented and smart, making him the ideal man to track down the Origami Killer, but can he keep his vices in check?

The determined photographer

Dragged into the destroyed lives created by the Origami Killer, Paige finds herself in situations which put her in grave danger. Although whether she lives or dies, it’s up to you if she finds fulfilment in a life plagued by loneliness and isolation.
