E3 2017: Detroit Become Human Reveals New Cast Members Jesse Williams, Minka Kelly
Detroit Become Human - Jesse Williams
(Last Updated On: June 13, 2017)

David Cage from Quantic Dream talked a little bit about the upcoming PS4 exclusive Detroit: Become Human. He revealed some key details about the game, the development and some of the cast members.

During an interview with Geoff Keighley, the YouTube E3 gaming host, the French developer explained that there will be three playable characters in the game, including an android revolting against the system known as Markus, who is played by a housewife’s wet dream come to life, Jesse Williams.

Markus will be accompanied throughout his story by another android freed from the system who attempts to help him free other androids and stage a potentially peaceful or violent revolt. Markus’ companion is played by actress Minka Kelly from Friday Night Lights fame.

Both Minka Kelly and Jesse Williams’ characters were highlighted in the latest E3 2017 trailer for Cage’s upcoming title. You can check it out below courtesy of MKIceandFire.

In trying to find out if I spelled his name right and if he was a real celebrity, apparently there’s some drama about him dumping his wife for his co-star Minka Kelly. I guess spending all that time together on set in body-hugging suits finally worked its magic on his non-android parts.

Anyway, the other two playable characters in Detroit: Become Human includes Connor the android cop who hunts down delinquent androids, and Kara, the very popular android that first appeared in the Kara tech demo for Detroit nearly an entire generation ago.

Since you get to play as the troublemaker, Markus, and as the cop who hunts him down, Connor, I’m sure there are a bunch of /pol/s salivating at the mouth of being able to play a white cop who can kill a black protestor. Just the same as there are probably a bunch of BLM activists like Talcom X who can’t wait to play as a black protestor who can kill white android cops, and then brag about it on Twitter with a sponsored tweet from Verizon.

According to Cage, however, the game will offer lots and lots and lots of choices. In fact, according to the interview he had with Geoff Keighley he’s said that it’s Quantic Dream’s most ambitious title in offering gamers the most diverse outcomes for the varying choices that are made throughout the game. And much like Heavy Rain when one of the three main characters die, the story continues on toward the end, so there are lots and lots of different possibilities, prompting for people to replay the game multiple times. Seems like a good way to get some good mileage out of a single-player game.

Cage also revealed that all performance capture for the game has been completed, and the 2,000 page script has been shot and edited for the game. The performance capture took them an entire year to film, so maybe that’s what led to the budding romance between Kelly and Williams? Anyway, all that’s left now is to tweak and polish Detroit: Become Human for its inevitable launch on PS4.

    The ability David cage has to completely miss a point is astounding

    The trailer stars and they are all “oh my gosh, look how they treat us, like products! Mheee!”

    Well yes, they treat you like a product because you are a product and you wouldn’t exist if you weren’t one. There are a hundred different interesting ways to take “Androids becoming self aware” stories, petulant complaints about being created is probably the worst one.

      Don’t you feel enriched?

        Well I do feel the urge to puke and I think I am about to have diarrhea and hey, I think even hemorrhoids is on it’s way thanks to Ubisoft

        I felt a Brazzer IR tag would pop up anytime.

        To be truthful, E3 is always obscene giving the amount self-gratification big publishers give themselves, it’s PR masturbation.

        Plenty of diversity multiculturalism chocolate with SJW scream yum yum yum yum yum.

    Can’t wait to watch SuperBestFriends play this pile of shit.

  • brokedownsystem

    All we need now is Karl Urban and Michael Ealy to show up and the Almost Human reboot would be nearly complete.

    • Ahahaha…. that would be hilarious. But you’re not wrong. I actually kind of liked that show, too.

    “so there are lots and lots of different possibilities, prompting for people to replay the game multiple times. Seems like a good way to get some good mileage out of a single-player game.”

    You know, I found this wasn’t the case for Heavy Rain. I found (if you played it start to finish with no mistake fixing, or reading ahead), that whatever happened was “The story”. If you played it again and changed some things, that was a novelty that wore off quickly, but there was only one way the story actually went.

  • tajlund

    I liked the teaser for it last year. I like the idea of a smart scifi thriller.

    • LurkerJK

      The old trailer was not bad, it reminded of almost human, I liked that show

      But I know better than expect anything good from David cage, the most he can do is so bad it’s hilarious but last time it was so bad it’s a snore fest

      Notice how everyone erased beyond two souls from their minds and keep mentioning heavy rain
