Detroit: Become Human, the upcoming android-centric drama from Quantic Dream, has officially gone gold—and everyone can give it a try when a surprise demo goes live later tonight.
PlayStation Blog revealed the status of the game in a celebratory post, along with a picture of the final gold master disc.
“During these four years [of development], 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,” Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere wrote. “And today, I guess it is with a mixture of all these feelings that we stand in front of you.”
To celebrate, the first scene of the game, Hostage, will appear on the PlayStation Store for fans to download and give the game a try. It will appear on the PlayStation Store at 9:01 p.m. PT tonight, April 23rd. (In Eastern Time, that’s one minute after midnight on April 24th.) If you own an Alexa device, the demo will include an “extended Alexa Skill” named CyberLife, which will let players ask Alexa to find more information about the characters and crime scenes in the game.
The Detroit demo can be downloaded from the PlayStation Store, while the CyberLife Skill can be found by searching for “CyberLife” on your Alexa app.
Detroit: Become Human releases on May 25th for the PlayStation 4.
