If you haven’t seen already Quantic Dream has released a new intense trailer for their upcoming title Detroit: Become Human. We’ve first seen this title in 2011 where it was initially a tech demo showcase. It later became a marquee step for Quantic Dream and David Cage as it won an award at the LA Short Festival — a first for a short based on a game engine. Now today and past showings such as E3 2017 and this week for Paris Games Week. We’ve been introduced into more details in regards to Detroit: Become Human. Here’s what David Cage has divulged so far:
Detroit is the story of our world in twenty years, a world where androids that look like humans are treated like objects and have no rights. It is the story of three androids’ struggles: Kara escaping to protect a little girl, Markus fighting to be free, and Connor chasing deviants; three stories that may well determine the future of all androids.
As the player, you will tell these three intertwined stories simultaneously through your actions and decisions. You will be confronted with difficult choices, moral dilemmas, and critical decisions that will shape the destiny of your characters and the future of their world.
Your actions will significantly change the story. Choices made as one character may have an impact on the others. You will also need to remember that all three characters can die at any point, which won’t lead to a game over, but will allow the story to continue without them…
Detroit offers a unique experience, something you have never played before. It is a spectacular and unexpected journey full of emotions, twists and turns, dangers and hopes, in the most branching experience ever created by Quantic Dream; where every choice matters.
While playing Detroit, you will not only discover these three characters but many others, and we hope you will remember Connor, Markus, and Kara’s stories for a long time – three androids fighting to become who they are…
(Editors Opinion: I cannot wait to get my hands on this title. Seeing this reminds me that I need to finish Beyond: Two Souls as I sadly put off. However with titles like Heavy Rain [which was my first Quantic dream game and first platinum from one of their games.] I’m very excited to play this upcoming release. So this will be a Day One for me!.)

PlayStation VR had a substantial presence during PlayStation’s E3 2017 press conference. One of the highlights for the PSVR games is being developed by Supermassive Games called Bravo Team.

INTENSE IMMERSIVE ACTION: Bravo Team takes you on a heart-pumping journey of intense combat and split-second decision making. With the feel of an action movie, Bravo Team offers exciting combat situations, multiple scenario outcomes and a seamless, continuous environment to create a wholly immersive experience.
TOTAL CONTROL: Bravo Team puts you directly into the action. You’ll need to lean round corners to take out targets or duck for cover if under fire. You’ll raise the aim controller to view through the iron sight or hold above your head to blind fire.
DECISIONS UNDER FIRE: You’ll make constant split-second tactical decisions about when to take cover, when to reload and when to engage. Should you lay down suppressing fire or try a different route? Who takes that new weapon? Players will need to think fast and act quickly to survive.
