The Detroit of the future, at least in the vision of the upcoming video game Detroit:Become Human, is a crazy, futuristic place full of androids and intrigue.

We brought you previously news last year that there’s a new video game coming out for the PS4 called “Detroit: Become Human.”

Additional gameplay footage and more information was rolled out at the E3 games conference this week.

The futuristic action/choose your own adventure game is set in a future Detroit, where there are humanoid androids – including an android detective of the Detroit Police Department.

From the Playstation Blog:

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.

This trailer goes more in-depth on what the game will be like; that you will be able to play as multiple characters, as well.


The game is based on a brand-new engine, says the Playstation blog, which allows for better effects and more realistic experiences.

But beyond the tech, their aim is to produce something that’s enjoyable and engaging to play.

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.

No release date has been given as of yet for Detroit: Beyond Human.
