We've known for a while that David Cage's and Quantic Dream's upcoming neo-noire action adventure game slash live action movie is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2018, but now we know the exact date - 25 May 2018.

Thankfully, Detroit: Become Human is the sort of game that can't be spoiled, seeing as how the storyline changes according to your choice. And we're not talking just two separate storylines either - we're looking at an organic story with multiple choices every step of the way.

Quantic Dream made a new engine specifically for the game and as you could've seen from these E3 previews, it looks pretty good. Apparently, it took Cage more than two years to write Detroit: Become Human, so expect some deep storylines.

The Detroit: Become Human developers once again reached for professional actors, which we must admit does a world of good to the level of depth of David Cage's games. You may recall that Beyond: Two Souls featured Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe and while the game was not without its quirks, the actors' execution was flawless.

Detroit: Become Human follows three androids, Kara, Connor and Markus, each with own storylines, choices and motives. Namely, Kara has escaped the factory, while Connor is in charge of bringing the likes of her down, in a Blade Runner type of fashion. Markus on the other hand is looking to free all androids from "captivity".

The entire concept of Detroit: Become Human is a result of Quantic Dream messing around with the company's tech demo Kara, and we're pretty glad they did. With the release drawing closer, we suspect we'll see more footage soon, although we'll reserve opinions until we've gotten our mitts on the game.
