At Sony’s E3 event last week, the company unveiled a brand new IP from Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream called Detroit: Become Human, and it looks absolutely fantastic.
Much like Heavy Rain, the narrative driven story allows players to play as multiple characters, all of which can die. In the initial reveal we were introduced to Kara, the first character that players will assume the role of, then we’ll be introduced to Connor, the star of the latest trailer for the game, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
However, if you’re not careful, the entire cast could come to a gloomy end.
Fortunately it looks like the controls will be reworked in Detroit: Become Human, as the fiddly controls of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls took players away from the game somewhat.
In an interview, David Cage hinted that the interface may be a little better to work with saying that it’ll have “more traditional interface… because [he] wants the challenge to be in the mind of the player, and not necessarily just on his thumbs.”
He also told IGN that the game will be around “eight to ten hours” long, with plenty of replay value.
