This is the third time I have written about Detroit: Become Human, and it isn’t even out yet.
For crying out loud, it’s been two years since Quantic Dream started showing this game off. On top of that, it has been shown in two E3 events. Not to mention the controversy the game started.
In case you didn’t hear or have forgotten, to show that choices matter in a trailer they showed that your actions could cause a young girl to be either be harmed or even killed by her father, or you could save her.
This angered a lot of people, including the NSPCC, Childline founder Dame Esther Rantzenand and Tory MP Damian Collins.
Yeah, that happened. Frankly, I thought people had better things to do then complain about video games. Maybe working hard to save and protect real children rather than fictional ones. Then again, Trump has jumped on the ‘Video games promote violence’ bandwagon. God, I am sick of hearing that nonsense.
I am tempted to write about how ridiculously stupid that idea is, but my blood is boiling just thinking about it so for my own safety I don’t think I will anytime soon.
Back on topic.
After two years of waiting, we finally have an official release date! Detroit: Become Human will come out on PS4 on the 25th of May. Needless to say, pre-orders are already available. To be honest, part of me suspects that it will get delayed. Not quite sure why, just a hunch.
I love Scifi, particularly Scifi that discusses morality. On top of that, any game that implements choice mechanics gets peeks my interest. So I have been keeping an eye on Detroit: Become Human since it was first announced.
While I complained about how long we have had to wait for this game, I personally would rather wait and get a great game than have a rubbish game rushed out. Yet I will admit that my expectations grow the more I have to wait.
On the bright side, at least we don’t have to wait much longer.
