Freed from its exclusive contract with Sony, Quantic Dream was finally able to offer its catalogue on platforms other than the PS4. This is how Heavy Rain and now Detroit Become Human Mobile have found their way onto the PC and it is the latter that we are interested in here.
The Complete Test Of Detroit Become Human Mobile
Fans of Quantic Dream productions had to wait 5 years for the birth of Beyond’s successor: Two Souls. More than 4 years of development were necessary for the French studio’s teams to try to push its DNA to its limits and propose a story with multiple branches, thanks to which each player is free to take control of the destiny of the characters he plays. It’s better to say it right away, the wait was clearly worth it.
Test without spoilers
Detroit Become Human Mobile is a game with many surprises and scenic twists. So that you can get a precise idea of the title without spoiling the experience, you should know that this test does not contain any spoilers, except for the two excerpts that appear in it, which only reveal scenes that occur very early in the adventure.
Welcome To 2038
The year is 2038 and the city of Detroit Become Human Mobile, once hard hit by an economic collapse, has managed to rise from its ashes by becoming the world capital of android production. The powerful company Cyberlife was the first to develop these singular beings, whose mimicry with humans is disturbing, to say the least. In this context, androids have gradually replaced humans in most common jobs. Receptionists, teachers, doctors… so many functions now occupied by machines whose reliability is hardly questioned within companies.
However, the democratisation of these machines has not gone smoothly and the unemployment rate among humans has risen sharply. These multiple job losses have resulted in a certain hostility from part of the population towards the androids. Moreover, the latter are not fully integrated into the population and some areas are reserved for them, giving the society of Detroit Become Human Mobile an apartheid appearance. But things are about to change and some androids are starting to show signs of dysfunction. Those who will soon become known as ‘deviants’ are indeed showing signs of emerging consciousness and human feelings far removed from their original programme.
It is in this troubling context that you will have the opportunity to embody three characters, with very different fates, but whose interests are linked. Kara is a housewife, taking care of little Alice who lives under the yoke of a tyrannical father. Markus is a home care worker, caring for a wealthy painter, while Connor is an android assisting law enforcement at crime scenes, especially those involving deviants.
Detroit Become Human Mobile Screenplay
It is certainly not easy to praise the merits of a narrative game like Detroit Become Human Mobile without revealing any part of the plot, but that is what we will try to do in order to spare the effect of surprise. Concerning the title script, we can affirm that the whole is quite solid, even if, as we feared, the writing tends to force the line a little too much, especially in its first hours. Indeed, the first chapters of Detroit Become Human Mobile clearly don’t avoid major clumsiness in writing and a few clichés, even if fortunately these pitfalls are much more diluted – though present – later on. If the overall plot quickly became sprawling according to your choices (we’ll come back to this later), we would have liked Quantic Dream to offer us a slightly more personal and original vision of the singularity, a subject often dealt with in literature or cinema. However, while the themes addressed are certainly not overwhelming in their originality, their general treatment is very pleasant to follow, especially as their staging is terribly involving for the player. Note that although the subject matter is sometimes particularly dark, the title carefully avoids complacency and also shows subtlety in its approach to the most serious subjects, succeeding in stirring strong emotions in the players on several occasions.
Moreover, the Detroit Become Human Mobile vision proposed by Quantic Dream is glaringly credible. The studio fulfils its promise not to be involved in science fiction, but rather in anticipation, giving this year 2038 a glimpse of a possible future. Great attention has been paid to the details of the universe, whether it be clothing, vehicles, shop windows or the architecture of the most modern buildings. Moreover, rather than forcing the contextualisation of the basics of its universe, Detroit Become Human Mobile is packed with magazines that detail the atmosphere and issues of this year 2038. We warmly invite you to consult these documents, which have the intelligence to raise interesting questions, both on the place of androids and on the impact they have, just like humanity, on ecology or geopolitics.
Finally, technically, Detroit Become Human Mobile lives up to Quantic’s standards and offers its share of sumptuous panoramas and characters that one would sometimes consider alive. So there are some small glitches here and there concerning the sometimes rather rigid animations, but the whole work of the Quantic Dream teams is to be saluted, the title is very often a feast for the eyes.
A Number Of Variables That Force Respect
As we said a little earlier, and as the studio’s games tradition dictates, it is essentially the player’s involvement that makes all the salt in the adventure’s unfolding. Like a Heavy Rain, Detroit Become Human Mobile is divided into several chapters, each one or almost every one devoted to the different characters you are in charge of. The whole of Detroit Become Human Mobile is the sum of many chapters with many connections. Indeed, a large number of decisions or elements observed during exploration or a conversation can have repercussions in the medium and long term. It will not be rare, for example, to congratulate oneself for having maintained good relations with a character who is a priori insignificant, the latter being able much later to get you out of a delicate situation.
