Detroit: Become Human has gone gold, game demo out tomorrow on PS4

Get a taste of the full game ahead of its 25th May release, as Quantic Dream looks back on four years of development

We are extremely pleased and proud to announce today, that after four years of passionate crafting, Detroit: Become Human has officially gone gold!

During these four years, we have gone through all possible states and emotions that the development of such a challenging project induces: the pride of working on something special and unique, the doubt of attaining all our creative and technical goals, the hope when publicly releasing scenes and trailers and seeing players’ positive reactions, the fear of not having enough time and resources to make everything perfect, the joy of finally seeing all parts of the puzzle come together, scene after scene, and finally being able to play the game from start to finish.

Detroit: Become Human

And today, I guess it is with a mixture of all these feelings that we stand in front of you. Detroit: Become Human is no longer our game, instead it will soon become yours. Yours to play, to own, to hopefully cherish.

The fate of Connor, Kara and Markus is in your hands, along with the fate of all other characters in the game.

Through your decisions and actions, you will have the opportunity to become the writer, the director and the main protagonist of the most branching story we have ever created.

A story made of hopes, fears, sadness but also of joy and happiness. A story as much about us, humans, as it is about androids.

David Cage, the entire team and myself are proud of the work we have accomplished during these four years. We are grateful to all our wonderful actors, composers, artists and partners around the world who have lent their talent to making Detroit: Become Human the very special experience it has become.

We are also extremely grateful to our fans around the world. We have read all of your emails, all of your letters, all of your tweets and messages. Each of them has given us the inspiration to make the best possible game for our fans.

Last but not least, we are extremely thankful to Sony and the whole PlayStation family for believing in us and enabling us to make our dreams come true.

To celebrate this milestone, and to help you pass the time as you hold on just a little while longer for the game’s release on 25th May, I am extremely happy to announce that the very first scene of the game, Hostage, will be available for download on PS Store starting from tomorrow, Tuesday 24th April.

Congrats to all at Quantic. Thanks for the demo but I’m waiting for the full game.

This is really cool. I have never an interest in Quantic Dream games, but this really has my attention

Same. If the “nice edition” turns out to be a Complete Edition for half the price in a year’s time, so be it

Can’t wait for this. Most anticipated game of the year for me

cool I’ll ‘play’ the demo, you guys really know how to do graphics! too bad the game is likely just another QTE-coose your path-interactive movie that will end in a cluster f ending like heavy rain. gonna buy it for 10 eur in a few..


How do you avoid cutting yourself on all that edge?

=D Exciting . i notices the Alexa option is not mentioned in the Eu. is it not available in the eu?

i still find the character faces kinda creepy in these games. Didn’t like Heavy Rain much at all. Definitely one of my least fave PS3 purchases.

Looking forward to the game. Not nearly enough proper scifi narrative adventures around nowadays so this should be a rare treat.

The treatment of the AI subject is (expectedly) disappointing and circumstantial — granted, David Cage is not Marvin Minsky. It still looks like a decent interactive experience.

It remains to be seen if the current legal case between Quantic Dreams and a couple of French news outlets is not going to stain the studio’s reputation.


Still no UK special edition or steelbook?

Waiting to preorder if I can get one of those.
