Quantic Dream has released three new trailers for Detroit: Become Human that focus on the game’s three main characters: Connor, Markus, and Kara.
Connor is a prototype android, named the RK800, who was created by CyberLife. He was created to assist human detectives in their investigations by offering them technological assistance and is also equipped with a social module that is specially developed to allow him to fit into any team.
“When the first cases of androids with abnormal behavior are reported, CyberLife offers to send this prototype to assist Detroit police. Connor has already undergone field tests involving androids, but this is his first investigation,” director David Cage explains. “Connor is sent to join Lieutenant Hank Anderson, a grizzled, alcoholic detective who hates androids. Connor will need to make use of his “psychology” module to earn the respect of his partner and discover the truth about deviants.”
Next up is Markus, a model RK200 android who belongs to celebrated painter Carl Manfred. Carl treats Markus as if he were human, teaches him to paint, and eventually comes to think of him as a son, which annoys his biological son, Leo.
“Markus’ journey will take him from caregiver in the service of an old man to leading the historic android revolution. But to lead a revolution will be much more difficult than anything Markus can imagine: he must contend with the factitious disagreements of his people, face insoluble dilemmas, moral choices and sacrifice,” Cage adds. “He must choose a path between violence and pacifism, between a closed fist and an outstretched hand. Through his choices, Markus will write the history of his people and lead them to freedom… or destruction.”
Finally we have Kara, an AX400 domestic assistant model android created by CyberLife. AX400 are common models designed to perform housework and look after children, with the ability to speak 300 different languages and cook more than 9000 dishes. Kara is owned by an unemployed taxi driver called Todd Williams, who has a daughter called Alice.
Detroit: Become Human launches May 25th for PlayStation 4.
