What a week! This past Monday saw PlayStation’s Media Showcase divulge a mountain of new game reveals, updates, and other announcements.
Because there was so much to take in, I wanted to offer a “cheat sheet” of the very biggest trailers from the show. If you want an even more comprehensive list of all announcements, see our roundup post here.
What was your favorite trailer?
When we released a short video called “Kara” in 2011, we never imagined where it would take us. Initially just a tech demo, the story of this female android wanting to be free moved millions of people online and won an award at the LA Short Festival — a first for a short based on a game engine.
Since then, I tried to imagine what happened to Kara after she left the factory. I had to imagine a world, our world in 20 years – the city of Detroit reborn thanks to the android industry.
With the chaos of E3 behind us, it’s time to tally the votes and declare the winners of the show, as voted by you! As a reminder, the three categories you voted in were “Best Trailer,” “Most Anticipated PS4 Game,” and “Most Anticipated PS VR Game.” Competition was fierce in all three fields, but each saw a clear winner… and one game in particular won the day in two of the three available categories.
Without further ado… the winners!
The story of Detroit: Become Human, Quantic Dream’s upcoming PS4 neo-noir thriller, centres around three androids, built with the sole purpose to serve out their programmed function in the titular city in the near-future of 2038.
Similar to the studio’s previous works, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit: Become Human will focus on a trio of playable characters, with the player dictating their every move and choice in an ever-expanding, ever- branching narrative.
After reintroducing the character of Kara at Paris Games Week two years ago, and revealing Connor in our first gameplay footage at E3 2016, we are thrilled to return to E3 for the unveiling of our third and final playable character: Markus.
As you may remember, at E3 earlier this month we debuted brand new footage from Detroit: Become Human — the incredible new adventure from Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream.
There was plenty to take in across the clip — not only did it offer your first glimpse of one of the game’s main playable characters, Connor, but it also offered a taste of Detroit’s branching gameplay, where your every action can alter the path the story takes.
After our announcement at Paris Games Week last summer, we are very excited to be at E3 to show you more about our next title Detroit: Become Human! Today, we debuted a new trailer based on in-game footage, and we wanted to tell you a little bit more about the story of Detroit and an update on the game.
