Metroidvanias sure are different these days!
Sony have shown off footage from Detroit: Become Human. The demo showcased a hostage situation where Connor, an android, had to talk another android down from killing a girl. The demo showcases the multiple ways the scenario could go depending on the choices you make.
The demo ends with Connor looking into the camera saying that “this is our story.” It was very David Cage. We also learned that Mr. cage loves the number 69. Nice.
According to a post on Sony’s official blog, the game is “about emotion” (of course, this is a David Cage game). Quantic Dream also detailed a little more about Connor, the game’s second playable character, following on from Kara, who was unveiled at Paris Games Week last year.
After Kara, Connor is the second playable character we’re introducing.
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.
In this new trailer, Connor is confronted with a tense hostage situation involving a deviant android holding a little girl and threatening to jump from a rooftop. Depending on your decisions and strategy, Connor will succeed or fail in saving the girl; survive or die. Your actions will lead to different outcomes and will have consequences far beyond this scene.
