PARIS, November 19, 2019 -- Quantic Dream S.A., the Paris-based video game studio at the forefront of interactive narrative development, today announced that the multiple award winning futuristic thriller Detroit: Become Human will be released on PC exclusively through the Epic Games Store on the 12th of December 2019, priced £29.99. A free playable demo offering the game’s opening scene will be available simultaneously. .
Previously only available on PlayStation® 4, Detroit: Become Human is the latest and most ambitious video game production from Quantic Dream. Set in a near and not-so-impossible future, it immerses players in a world at the brink of chaos, where technology has evolved to a point where human like androids are everywhere. They speak, move and behave like human beings, but they are only machines serving humans.
Players will shape and experience an intricate and intense branching narrative told through the eyes of three distinct androids, Kara, Connor and Markus. Each will face countless moral dilemmas that not only determine their fates, but that of the entire city of Detroit. Every decision the player makes, no matter how minute, affects the outcome of the story. Players will want to play and replay to experience the different story resolutions.
Detroit: Become Human continues Quantic Dream’s commitment to utilising world-renowned talent, and features the Hollywood grade performances from Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), Clancy Brown (Carnivale), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), and Valorie Curry (Twilight), as well as an original soundtrack composed by Nima Fakhrara, Philip Sheppard and John Paesano (Dragons: Riders of Berk)
“Porting the game to PC has been a tremendous challenge, as we wanted players to get the original experience without any compromise. So we entirely redesigned the interface and developed a new engine to offer 4k resolution and high quality rendering on a wide range of PCs.” says Writer and Director, David Cage. “We are glad to welcome more “deviants” into the dystopic world of Detroit, and allow them to discover Quantic Dream’s vision of interactive storytelling.”
The PC version of the game is the most complete Detroit: Become Human experience to date, featuring stunning graphics complete with 4K resolution, 60fps and full integration of both mouse/keyboard and gamepad controls.
