Is it misleading? Shouldn't she be facing you chin down eyes up holding two guns?


Shouldnt all game covers have guns on them? Including Mario?

Yes it would be misleading. The developers say so themselves in the article.

"Last month Beyond’s developer Quantic Dream revealed that it came under pressure from Sony marketeers to feature Jodie holding a gun on the game’s cover. It refused, saying that such an image would betray the true contents of the game."

Why should it have a gun?

EDIT: There's the reason.

Yeah, should be chin down, eyes up with explosions in the background.

Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in The Last of Us, added: “I feel like they don’t put women on the covers because they’re afraid that it won’t sell. It’s all gamers really know – and I don’t want to be sexist by any means – but I get the feeling, generally, that they think game’s won’t sell as well with a woman on the cover, compared to some badass dude on the front.”

Oh god... *facepalm*

The cover shows both playable characters and looks cool.

Name should be changed to
Beyond: Two Guns

Her face should have some blood on it.
