Heavy Rain isn't a new game, exactly, but it's been a PlayStation exclusive since it released back in 2010. For those not familiar, it's basically an interactive movie / novella rather than your traditional video game - there's no combat, fighting or gunplay in this one, but it is a very compelling experience.

The game centres on the hunt for The Origami Killer, a serial killer who, as you might have guessed from his name, leaves origami creations behind alongside his victims. The demo gives you a flavour for the first two chapters, where you'll play FBI profiler Norman Jayden, and PI Scott Shelby as you try and crack the case.

The game has been given a little polish over it's 2010 counterpart, with 4K and 60fps support, although it does kinda show it's age still.

That being said, Heavy Rain is an amazing experience, and if you've never played the PS3 original, I strongly suggest you at least check out the demo. Trust me, you'll be hooked.

The demo is out now on the Epic Games store, with the full release expected to drop on June 24th.
