Quantic Dreams' game is a narrative experience like we haven't seen in games for a long time. See some tips for Detroit Become Human to get along in this world
Detroit Become Human is a game unlike anything we've seen in recent years. Focused much more on the narrative experience, character development, impactful decisions throughout the plot and various endings and paths to be seen and reviewed throughout the game, the game is almost like a big interactive movie where you participate, get involved and follow the exciting journey of Connor, Kara and Markus.
The game alternates between action points with quicktime events and long scenes of conversations between characters punctuated by moments of choices and decisions that affected our journey through the game and exploration of rich scenarios that can reveal clues and curiosities that help us with the characters, unlocking new dialogue and question options. Say something or ask something and see the NPC getting angry, or happy, with you and that will have consequences down the road.
Androids or People? You decide with these Detroit Become Human tips
Playing Detroit Become Human isn't exactly like other games you're used to. You won't go out shooting various enemies that will appear on the screen or you'll need to evolve levels and choose equipment. You'll spend a little more time reading, watching and watching things around the scene, making decisions and dealing with the consequences of that while building a future for humans and droids, whether it's harmonious or not.
There are three playable characters in Detroit Become Human, whose stories you'll explore one at a time, but with moments where you'll alternate between them in the same chapter. You don't choose who to play with, but instead play them on your journey depending on which chapter you are on.
All three are androids, and you will decide what happens to them and those around you that are important to their development. Eventually, the three will coincide, but who they are, what they did and how their decisions affected them will decide and what state they are in, as well as what situation they are in, when they meet depends on your choices so far.
You can take them along multiple paths with many different outcomes throughout the game, and their endings will be determined by your choices during the game.
An android built to work closely with the Detroit Police Force, Connor is always mission focused. He is partnered with Lt. Hank Anderson, with whom he proves to be difficult to work with on many occasions throughout his history. Connor's goal seems to be to build a good relationship with Lt. Hank and resolve the divergent case, but whether that happens depends on your game.
Arguably the most complex character to play, Connor's story provides some of the biggest consequences for his actions throughout the game.
Owned by a wealthy painter in need of medical assistance, Markus offers company and help to Carl, who treats him more like a human than an android. Markus is constantly being told to choose who (not what) he wants to be, a notion that often leaves him confused.
Everything changes when Carl's son, a boy with serious drug problems, breaks into his father's studio to steal. In the confusion, Markus ends up losing everything he had and the android rises from hell (almost literally) and will be responsible for guiding his people, like some kind of messiah. Your choices during Markus' story will impact how the American public views androids and therefore dictates how androids will be integrated into society in the future.
Originally a dutiful machine working as a maid, we meet Kara after she was restored after a questionable incident involving her owner, Todd, and their daughter, Alice. As soon as it becomes clear that Todd is a threat to Alice, Kara breaks free of her obedience to protect Alice and runs to safety.
Kara's mission is always to keep the girl safe, often finding herself in dangerous and morally questionable situations on her journey. The player must earn and maintain Alice's trust if he is to reach the end of her story safely. It also has one of the coolest plot twists in the game.
“This isn't just a game. It's our story"
That's the phrase you hear from Chloe, the beautiful blonde android who chats and interacts with you during the game's title screen. In fact, the game has many impactful and ending stories that can be surprising to the player. So, so you can enjoy the game well, let's give you some tips. It won't be codes or guides, because playing the game and making your own decisions is part of what makes it more exciting.
Play without Guides
As stated above, do not search or follow internet guides while playing Detroit. For your first move (and you will also know this in the game), we recommend completing the story without any kind of guidance or tutorial. It's important to enjoy the game as it is the first time you play it, and this will allow you to make the choices you want and experience the game according to your personal preferences.
Then you can look for guides and guidance on how to find flowchart paths, collect any leftover magazines, and get that good ending to the SURVIVERS trophy (if you haven't already received it)! But particularly I think it's cool that you play it at least once for each ending, without guides. You will find the answers yourself. Also, it won't get repetitive as easily as an action game where you have to walk the same path and kill the same monsters.

explore your surroundings
It's good, when playing a game for the first time, to really take the time to discover everything around you. This helps if you are looking to do something specific or if you are trying to achieve a certain result during the events of the story. In most sections of the game, you'll have the freedom to move around as you like and interact with objects and other characters.
The only time you can't do this is if you have a timer on screen, in which case you'll have to complete tasks before the timer reaches zero. If you can still explore around, well, then good luck.
By holding down R2, you can use your Android vision to inspect your surroundings and highlight key points of interest you can interact with. There are some things that are simply there to look out for that will have no effect on the game or decisions, but there are a lot of items, people, and more to look into.
This mechanic is available on all three characters, regardless of where you are in the story – with Android vision turned on, everything is still until you move again.
making critical decisions
Detroit Become Human is a game with a lot of options and choices, with many different outcomes from start to finish that are subjective to each player's style. However, many of the most vital choices to be made in the game can have disastrous consequences. At various points in history, you will have to decide between actions that guarantee success and actions that are fatal.
All your choices affect the game's progress and ending. These decisions cannot be reversed, but the game is good enough to offer checkpoints throughout the chapters if you want to go back and try again.
In order for the changes caused by your choice to take effect, you will have to continue playing until the end of each chapter. You cannot skip chapters or sections of chapters as this will not change previous choices you have made. When these important choices come up, it's important not to panic! You can pause the game at any time before deciding if you really want to think about what to do next – I say that because most dialogue options have a timer, and if you don't choose anything, the game chooses for you. Some of the most important decisions don't have a timer, so just relax, take a break if necessary, and think it over.
These types of moments in the story include choosing to help other characters, saying the right thing to raise your reputation with them, or deciding who lives and who dies – including the main characters as you play.
But that's the fun of playing a multiple choice game like Detroit. You can try all the different options to see what the results are! You can go back and repeat or continue to see how things turn out.
Speaking of which: repeating the Detroit Become Human chapters to see all these different results is important, especially if you want to complete the flowchart for each individual chapter. Just because the level is over doesn't mean you've done everything necessary to unlock all the nodes.
We still recommend that you don't worry about this during your first move, as trying to complete a flowchart before moving on to the next chapter can ruin your progress and alter the story you've already started to create.
Some chapters don't need a replay to reach 100%, but some longer ones certainly will! You can access the chapters at any time from the main menu screen and view the flowcharts to see the paths already taken.
Read the Magazines
The only collectibles in the game are the magazines, which can be found in various chapters as you play. Some are internal, some external, and sometimes they change depending on the choices you've made with each character. They give an extra look at the world of Detroit Become Human in the form of news and articles. Stopping to watch TV and TV news does that too. In fact, reading everything available helps you to better understand the game world around you.
You can access the magazines at any time from the main menu by going to the Extras part, and you will find that the game requires multiple moves to collect all 46 magazines. So, good luck on your hunt.
