With slightly more than two months left until Detroit: Become Human hits PlayStation 4, Sony and Quantic Dream have teased a bit more of their upcoming title by launching three trailers focusing on the game's cast: Connor, Kara and Markus.

As you probably know, storyline behind David Cage's new neo noire title follows three androids. Kara has escaped her birth-factory; Markus is trying to free androids from their human oppressors whereas Connor is your Blade Runner's Deckard of the bunch - he puts androids out of commission

The first Detroit: Become Human trailer shows Kara, the runaway android, taking care of a little girl. This time around, we're sure the trailer will ring better with the professionally outraged web-based civic rights advocates.

We're talking about the same people who complained how Detroit: Become Human trivialises child abuse and violence. Seriously, will someone just tell them that invading livelihoods and creative freedoms of game developers is not how you go about fixing domestic violence?

The second Detroit: Become Human trailer shows Marcus, the second goody two shoes of the bunch, on his path to becoming the android messiah. The fast cuts in the trailer don't reveal much but do hint at a deep storyline.

Decommissioner Connor is covered in the third trailer and personally, his story seems to be the most engaging. Of course, this may very well be bias talking, what with the concept explored more than a few times, perhaps most prominently in the Blade Runner.

The game is a continuation of David Cage's style of storytelling - expect something more akin to an interactive movie than something fitting the frame of interactive design, even though this may have been his most meticulous approach to a game so far. Detroit: Become Human is on track for launch on 25 May 2018 for PlayStation 4.
