After years of waiting, Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream has finally taken the wraps off its new adventure game. Detroit: Become Human is a PS4-exclusive sci-fi game set in, you guessed it, futuristic Detroit. Beginning life as a PS3 tech demo called KARA back in 2012, it’s since ballooned out into a full game. It centres around Kara, an android who has been brought to life and wishes to become human.

Detroit: Become Human promises to be about life, both artificial and human, and just what living means. So far, so very David Cage (founder of Quantic Dream). Cage claims it’s not just another story about AI however, but rather “what it means to be human and what it would be like to be in the shoes of an android discovering our world and their own emotions.” As you’d expect from a Quantic Dream title, Detroit: Become Human looks visually stunning in this debut trailer, with some truly top tier motion capture that helps bring the story to life.

As to how it plays, I’d expect it be along the lines of Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain, with limited interactivity and branching choices affecting the outcome. Hopefully the narrative takes inspiration from the latter rather than the former, which quickly deteriorated into a time-hopping mess.

The naming does sound a little weird for this game. "Detroit: Become Human" sounds like a movie about Eminem. Though I still think it will be a nice game.

There will never be a PS4 emulator that works properly for at least 10 years.

That's funny, because I just looked it up and found quite a few PS4 emulators already. That isn't to say they all are bug free and actually work right, but they exist.

GD isn't mainly built for pc gamers, some part of it are for consoles. Never underestimate the power of the console gamers, they are strong when United.

GD wasn't always as wide as it is now. It started its life as a website where you can see system requirements and benchmarks of games, compare different CPUs and GPUs. At those days GD had almost nothing to interest console gamers. Nowadays it has reviews, news etc. for every platform but it is still mainly for pc.


Console gamers don't even visit websites like that, they are either people who has both pc and consoles or console fanboys.

So there's this thing that David said that "Don't call it sci-fi" but I'm wondering if that's completely bull as I didn't find it from the PGW or from the interviews.

Lol, when I read "Android Adventure" I almost thought it was an Android phone game. But I do remember watching the KARA video and it was pretty interesting. I expect a good game from this as always from Quantic Dream.

A lot of games seem to delve ito this futuristic stuff and boundries between human and machine.But Deus Ex was the ione that started it sll,and it will always be the one and only for me.Maybe these games will be great,but they will never top it.

Between Uncharted, Last of US and this, it feels like the best adventure games come on the Playstation. Nothing sold me on buying a console though. PC master race.

Well, I guess Detroit forged a robotic version of Sam from Until Dawn. I swear I thought it was something to do with her at first.

Robocop without the cop part? Nah just joking, this looks like a pretty good concept. If I had a PS4 I would strongly consider buying it.
