Detroit: Become Human Is Intense And Full Of Androids

Detroit: Become Human is the latest game from Heavy Rain developers Quantic Dream. It’s about a sci-fi Detroit where androids don’t have human rights, a description that also applies to real Detroit.

The trailer demonstrates moments of tense choice involving an unhinged android and a little girl. He holds her hostage on the roof of a skyscraper. In this scene, the player is Connor, another playable character (the first introduced was a woman android named Kara). Connor is an android who works with police forces to help deal with deviant androids. So this is a day in his typical life, though likely also the start of something much bigger. There are many possible unhappy endings to the scene. I would argue that none of them are entirely happy.

It looks cool. It’ll be out sometime next year.
