Sony has today announced that its upcoming narrative-driven exclusive, Detroit: Become Human has finally got a confirmed release date in May.
The news comes via a post over on the official PlayStation Blog, from Detroit: Become Human’s writer and director, David Cage. Cage details the three intertwined stories that players will follow throughout the game’s narrative. “Detroit is the story of three androids, three machines designed to obey, who start to feel emotions,” Cage said. “Connor is a prototype designed to help human investigators on cases involving androids; Kara becomes a fugitive by empathizing with a little girl, united in their dream of freedom; Markus will become the leader of the android revolution.”
As we’ve seen in Quantic Dream’s previous titles, these three stories will intertwine and merge at times, before going off in their own different ways. The decisions players make as each of these characters will ultimately affect the outcome of the game, too.
Cage also notes Detroit’s utilization of “the most spectacular 3D engine we have ever created,” which allows for “full performance captures, scenes featuring crowds, all with a level of quality we had never reached before.” Unfortunately, Cage didn’t go into detail here about any PS4 Pro enhancements, but here’s hoping the 4K-capable system is made full use of here.
Detroit: Become Human will finally be playable on PS4 on May 25.
