Will Detroit: Become Human be any good? I don’t quite know—I think David Cage’s format for games and storytelling has potential (as evidenced by games of that style by other studios, such as Life is Strange). The premise of the upcoming game, dealing with artificial intelligence, and how it might be treated is great, too, and fodder for great science fiction stories.
But David Cage himself hasn’t ever been able to rise above his shortcomings as a writer for me to have full confidence that Detroit might succeed where, say, Beyond failed. That said, right now, it looks good (plus Cage isn’t the solo writer on this new one), and that’s all that matters.
If you are excited for the title, then the newest video for it, which includes an interview with the cast of the game, is probably going to stoke the flames of your hype even more. You can check it out below. Detroit: Become Human launches this May exclusively for PS4.
