David Cage and his Quantic Dream studio are known for their standout and unique video games, and if the E3 2017 trailer for Detroit: Become Human is any indication, they should go three for three with that reputation. After Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls made gamers ponder moral quandries, the new Detroit: Become Human will ask what it is to be human at all. You play as cybernetic androids who fight for freedom after being treated as slaves, and will seemingly choose many aspects of Marcus', a vigilante and freedom fighter, life.

In this futuristic Detroit, Michigan, Marcus is trying to gain freedom for the android population, and the choices will be numerous. A shot at the end of the trailer shows Marcus taking "Violent" or "Pacifist" paths throughout the game, constantly branching how the other androids and humans alike will interact with you. The "Riot - Sandbox" tile also seems to denote that we'll see an open world in addition to the more linear story, but that's just educated supposition.

Detroit: Become Human has no release date just yet, so don't expect to play this PS4 exclusive right after watching the Blade Runner sequel in a dystopian android marathon, but there might be more information about it later this week.
