As expected, Quantic Dream took to Sony's Paris Games Week stage earlier today to announce Detroit – a Cloud Atlas-inspired story about sentient robots in a changing, futuristic world. The game will star Kara from the classic PlayStation 3 tech demo, and will deal with the cyborg's life once she's left the factory in which she was constructed. It looks drop dead gorgeous, of course.
"We didn't want to do another story on AI, we wanted to talk about what it means to be human and what it would be like to be in the shoes of an android discovering our world and their own emotions," said director David Cage, unafraid to use his favourite word yet again. There's no release date just yet, but this author loves the premise, and can't wait to learn more.
