Quantum Dream, developers of awesome games such as, Heavy Rain & Beyond: Two Souls are bringing us a whole new adventure… finally! The game will also be directed by David Cage, a video game designer out of France whom also happens to be a writer and musician and will be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Detroit: Become Human is set to release sometime in 2018, though the date isn’t set in stone just yet, I am happy to report it is in work. This game looks amazing! If you have played Heavy Rain or Beyond: Two Souls, you know what we can expect… What we can expect is another game full of beautiful story telling and realistic graphics allowing us to feel as if we are actually a part of the story, not just playing it. I am so excited!!
Detroit: Becoming Human is an extension of sorts from Quantum Dream’s 2012 tech demo Kara and, Valorie Curry returns as the lead role, though at first, I would have bet money the role was played by Jennifer Lawrence at first, the character just looks so much like her to me. Developers actually visited Detroit to research for the game and cast hundreds of actors and actresses during the year and a half long shooting for animation purposes, and it took over two and a half year for David Cage to write just the storyline alone.
It is an action-adventure game set in third-person point of view. During gameplay, there are multiple characters adding much diversity to the game, each of them able to die changing the course of the game as it continues without them so, be careful! Once the character is gone that’s it, there’s no going back. The course of the game will solely depend on your choices and your choices alone, so make them carefully… Consider all your options such as, how will this affect you later in the game? Do not make hasty decisions, think them through completely.
In the game, we travel to the metropolis of Detroit, set shortly. The city is now filled with exciting new technology and even androids. The city begins to fall apart, and complete chaos erupts. We follow our lead character, Kara, also an android as she grows to find her own place in this new aged city and it’s social status.
As I mentioned earlier, the choices you make, shape your future in the game but, not only will they affect you as well as those around you, but, they will also influence the entire city of Detroit and its development. The moral of the story is to discover what it means to be human through the eyes of someone who is not but instead longs to be. People from what I have gathered, seen to be something of the past for the most part, though Kara feels very human and has very human-like tendencies.
During gameplay you will collect clues that will help determine the decisions you will make to hopefully help us to avoid unfortunate situations… if you pay close enough attention that is.
A scene character will be introduced in the game… Honestly, I am sure if this character is another option during gameplay or if he is just another part of the story. It’s hard to tell because nothing seems to be very clear at this point. I am literally giving you all the reliable information I can gather.
Anyhow, this second characters name is Conner, a cyber-enhanced police officer. He has been assigned to hunt and retrieve rogue androids that have lost course of their own assignments. These androids pose a threat to society and the common people, or so he is lead to believe.
Kara & Conner are both androids but with various missions as well as personalities. Their differences transpire throughout gameplay and significantly affect their actions and even their dialogue. Kara thinks in a much more human way, with her heart so to speak, that is if she had one and Conner is a much more factual thinker, always playing by the book while Kara thinks freely with more emotion and feeling.
Now let’s see so the official trailer showcased at the E3 2017, PlayStation Conference….
Wow!! I don’t know about you all, but I am so impressed by this game and cant wait to play it!! I also cannot wait to see some actual gameplay… Let see what I can find…
Yay!!! I found the E3 gameplay trailer!! Let’s check it out!!
I love how human all the characters seem, even if they are androids, it’s tough to tell. I also love that every second of the game is so detailed, as they mentioned in the video. I totally agree! There doesn’t seem to be any moments where the story lags or causes you to lose focus. Just Amazing!
