News Report

"News Report" is the start of the epilogue of Heavy Rain. It sums up the game's story and the events of "The Old Warehouse."


The clip features reporter Glenn Sanders detailing the final outcome of the story. The statuses of Shaun and the Origami Killer are generally mentioned. If any playable characters have died, their deaths are also reported.

Shaun Mars
  • If Shaun survives, the report announces that Shaun has been found alive. If he is revived by one of the players, the report also gives them a special mention to them for making his rescue possible (meaning that if both Norman and Madison arrive at the warehouse, Norman will be praised, since he was the one who revived Shaun). If Shaun is saved but his rescuer subsequently dies, it is announced that Shaun was found wandering disoriented around the old docks.
  • If Shaun dies, the report announces that the Origami Killer has claimed a ninth victim and Shaun's body has been found on a wasteland.
Origami Killer
  • If the Origami Killer is identified, a picture is shown and details about his name and his previous profession are discussed. If the killer was killed at the Old Warehouse, it is announced that he was killed during a massive police operation. Otherwise, it is announced the police have not apprehended him and are launching a city-wide manhunt.
  • If he has not been identified, it is announced that he is still at large and the police have not identified him (regardless of whether he died or survived).
  • If Shaun dies and Ethan is imprisoned during the game, it is announced that Ethan is the Origami Killer and has been arrested. Ethan's mugshot is shown.
  • Players' deaths are only announced if their death was linked to the Origami Killer - for example, if Madison is killed by Adrian Baker, Norman is killed by Mad Jack, or Norman dies in "Solving the Puzzle," they will not be mentioned. If they were killed by the killer (in "Fish Tank," "Killer's Place," or "The Old Warehouse"), their death is reported.
  • If Ethan is killed outside the warehouse, it is announced by the report and if Norman survives, it is also announced that Carter Blake and Leighton Perry have been suspended. Otherwise, it simply mentions a full police investigation is pending.
  • If Norman is killed, it is announced that he was killed while trying to arrest the Origami Killer.
  • If Madison is killed, it is announced and mentions she was working on the case, but was killed in unclear circumstances.
