Detroit: Become Human, the next game from Quantic Dream, was shown off at Sony’s E3 press conference earlier this morning. The trailer showcased the staggering amount of potential endings to one particular scene, and seems to indicate that Detroit will feature multiple protagonists.
The trailer showed Connor, an android and hostage negotiator, attempt to tackle a hostage situation on the roof of a skyscraper. An android is holding a small girl hostage at gunpoint and is standing on the edge of the roof.
The scene goes pretty badly, with both android and girl taking a fall off the top of the massive building. But then it rewinds, and we begin to see the myriad of possible outcomes and paths through this single scene of gameplay. It was quite impressive.
