A new gameplay trailer for Detroit: Become Human from Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream was shared at PGW 2017.
The story is set in the future, when androids have become highly advanced—to the point where they’re almost indistinguishable from humans. But these androids are treated poorly by many, who consider them mere objects, tools, appliances to make their own lives easier. As was the case with Heavy Rain, the game features multiple characters you’ll play as whose stories will change depending on the choices you make.

During Sony’s presentation at E3 2017 a new trailer was released for Detroit: Become Human, the next game from Quantic Dream, the developer behind games like Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls.
As was the case with Heavy Rain, the game follows multiple playable characters, and the choices you make determine how things play out…including which characters survive and which die. The trailer follows androids who are sick of being slaves to humans, and are ready to do something about it.

Fans of the uniquely cinematic games of developer Quantic Dream such as Farenheit: Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls, will be excited at the released of the first trailer for their next game, titled Detroit: Become Human. Those very same fans will likely be even more excited to see that the game is actually born from a popular tech demo by Quantic Dream called “Kara” that was released a few years back.
The new game is set in a futuristic Detroit, and you play as an android discovering our world and their own emotions toward it for the first time. You can read more about the game and watch both the new trailer and the original tech demo below.
As you might have already read on this website, a viral Internet movement is underway to provide the citizens of Detroit a RoboCop statue [read Fans Decide Detroit Needs A RoboCop Statue Despite Government Rejection]. What started off as a joke suggestion from a New England man on Twitter has turned into a donation drive to bring an actual statue of the sci-fi hero to the city. The drive has been so successful, the required $50,000 cost has already been raised in less than 10 days. While this grassroots campaign is nothing short of amazing, I can’t but feel like this is leaving a sour taste in my mouth.
Face it, there are a million reasons why Detroit’s Mayor David Bing rejected this idea of creating a RoboCop statue. The most important reason? Because it is stupid. Why spend the city’s dollars on creating a statue to a fictitious crime fighting robot? What will that do for the declining city and its disenfranchised population? Some parts of Michigan don’t even have enough money to run a local paper and yet somehow, $50,000 was raised to put up a statue of RoboCop? I am as much of a fan of RoboCop as the next guy, but there isn’t a reason out there that can explain why a statue is needed.
