From the well known creators of heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Quantic Dream is set to release another action-adventure game exclusively for the PS4.
From the trailer it shows an Android named Connor responding to situations with different possible outcomes. The result is triggered by how the player counters the scenario in different situations. According to the game’s description:
Detroit is about playing the story. Through your actions and decisions you drive the story and face the consequences of your choices. You are in charge of the fate of these characters. You will become a “co-writer” who will have to make critical decisions that will impact the entire story and its world.
As you play as all of the characters, you’ll see the story from different perspectives. You will need to weigh each decision, as actions made by one character may have consequences on others. You will also need to avoid putting the characters at risk, because they can all die, and like in Heavy Rain, the story will continue without them.
In this game you gets to play as Kara which was briefly shown off in a 3 minute teaser above. According to a post from PlayStation Blog, Kara was actually taken from the tech demo that announced back in 2012 as Kara. As reads:
Inspired by our short called “Kara” back in 2012, Detroit is a neo-noir thriller set in the near-future city of Detroit. Androids, who look exactly like human beings, have replaced humans in most tasks: they are workers, babysitters, gardeners, nurses, teachers, clerks. The story of Detroit starts with an unexplained incident that begins to affect the Androids. Some disappear without any explanation, others have unexpected behaviors and strangely show signs of emotions. The rumors of “deviant” androids start spreading, but no one seems to know what’s really happening…
The post stats that Connor is the deviant hunter and can be a second playable character:
Connor is an advanced prototype assigned to police forces to help them investigate cases involving deviants. He is cold and analytical; he thinks fast and benefits from some surprising advanced features. He is very determined and nothing matters more to him than accomplishing the mission he was programmed for.
The post also mentioned that the game is not about fight for war and seeking freedom, instead is about making choices and choose your path:
Detroit is about emotions, about dilemmas and making difficult decisions. Detroit is not just the story of androids becoming aware of themselves and their fight to be free, it is about a story that resonates at many levels in our world, about being free, about becoming who you are.
However there is no release date for the game yet. So we will have wait for further announcements.
