E3 2016: New Detroit: Become Human Trailer Debuts At E3
The unveiling of Quantic Dream's new game Detroit: Become Human was one of the highlights of Sony's Paris Games Week conference last year, and Sony showed it off again this year at E3 2016 with a brand-new trailer.
The new video depicts a rooftop hostage situation in which the negotiator, Connor, fails to keep an AI from committing a murder-suicide. But the trailer then jumps back to the same scenario on numerous occasions, in which different outcomes occur based on decisions that players make beforehand. Connor, who appears to be a detective and is also an AI himself, can collect information which will help him unlock options during the negotiation.
You can watch the new trailer below.
Detroit: Become Human is the first game Quantic Dream (and its head honcho, David Cage) have released since 2013's Beyond: Two Souls, and it exists in the same narrative-centric tradition as that game and 2010's groundbreaking Heavy Rain. The studio's games are always plenty gorgeous, but they've been criticized for valuing style over compelling writing and gameplay.
"We didn't want to do sci-fi," Cage said. "We didn't want to invent any technology that doesn't exist in labs today. We wanted the world to look familiar to the player, so we really feel like, 'Oh, I know this place, this is a real place,' but at the same time be surprised at each corner."
With no release date, it's unclear how far the game is into development and how big a role the city will play.
"We still have a lot to work to do in order to make Detroit the truly unique experience we want to create, but we hope that you like this first look at gameplay," according to the blog post.
Well, all I can say is that this game is a must buy for PS4 gamers. I've played the previous two games of Quantic Dream, Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls, and I had fun playing those two games, so I'll be surely getting Detroit: Become Human once it comes out. How about you guys?
