Detroit: Become Human is an adventure game developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4, released worldwide on 25 May 2018.
The plot revolves around three androids: Kara, who escapes the owner she was serving to explore her newfound sentience and protect a young girl; Connor, whose job is to hunt down sentient androids; and Markus, who devotes himself to releasing other androids from servitude. They may survive or perish depending on actions and dialogue choices that shape the story.
Detroit: Become Human is based on Quantic Dream's 2012 technology demonstration Kara. To research the setting, the developers visited Detroit, Michigan and built a new engine to complement the game. The script took writer and director David Cage, who consulted artificial intelligence experts, over two years to complete.
Detroit: Become Human was met with generally favorable reviews from critics. The game was Quantic Dream's most successful launch, with sales exceeding 2 million.
Similarities to FahrenheitEdit
- As in Fahrenheit the playing characters are three, and in the same way two males and one female.
- In Fahrenheit two cops, Carla and Tyler, hunt for a fugitive, Lucas. In Detroit it's somewhat similar but reverse: investigator android Connor tries to capture Kara and stop Markus.
