Ever since its reveal back in late 2015, developer Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human has been one of the most hotly-anticipated titles for the PS4 thanks to its direction from David Cage and a unique, noir-inspired sci-fi story. Luckily, the release for the long-awaited game is getting closer, and tonight we got another look at the highly sought-after title.

During tonight’s opening presentation at PlayStation Experience 2017, a gameplay demo was showcased for Detroit: Become Human highlighting more of the intense human drama that will be at the center of the story focused on an android uprising.

Specifically, this demo involved one of the previously-shown scenes involving the protagonist Connor, as Quantic Dream’s Guillaume de Fondaumière walked viewers through the demo and took decisions from the audience.

Aside from the gameplay demo, de Fondaumière also mentioned that the game is currently at the “end of development,” and that the total script for the game encompasses over 2000 pages and “thousands” of story conversations to players to discover throughout what will (most likely) take several playthroughs to experience all that the game has to offer.

Of course, this also echoes  de Fondaumière’s sentiment that Detroit will be Quantic Dream’s “most ambitious project” yet, and that it will feature “the most branching narrative that we’ve ever created” that will “touch players on an emotional level.”

Detroit: Become Human will release for PS4 in Spring 2018 – in the meantime, you can check out the brand new trailer shown from the game at PlayStation Experience below:
