During Sony’s Tokyo Game Show 2018 press conference, Sony showed off a new Detroit: Become Human trailer. Quantic Dream’s PlayStation 4 exclusive is looking solid.

Check out the new Detroit: Become Human trailer below:

Once the police drone was taken care of, Marcus and partner North were able to locate their target: a store where other androids are sold to humans. Marcus quickly scanned the store, and discovered a link to the store’s security network. Some worker androids were busy repairing a conduit into the network (a little too perfect of a coincidence in this writer’s opinion, but we’ll roll with it). So Marcus hopped down to their level, freed the androids, and told them to “go to Jericho,” which sounds like a city made by awakened androids, for awakened androids. With the worker androids out of the way, Marcus was able to hack the building’s network. This was accomplished in true Quantic Dream fashion – the player simply had to hold down one, then two, then three, then four buttons at the same time for long enough.

With the security network knocked out, Marcus and North needed something big to bust open the front of the android store. A nearby truck did the trick. Marcus awoke the shop model androids, and then made a speech, getting the androids to rally up for the cause. It was time to send the humans a message, and where Quantic Dream’s signature choice mechanics came into play. Marcus could choose between a variety of pacifist or violent actions, from tagging a bench or destroying it, to moving automated cars, or tipping them over, and more. Each action added to a bar that moved between pacifist or violent, in varying degrees depending upon how extreme of an action was taken. We saw Marcus take a violent route again; this was a shame, because we had seen the violent version in the trailer before. It would have been interesting to see how the scene would have played out if Marcus chose the pacifist route; it appears Quantic Dream is keeping much of the game close to the vest.

Detroit: Become Human is set to release exclusively for PlayStation 4 in 2018.
