Detroit: Become Human Demo Provides First Scene as Game Goes Gold

Save the fish, or let it die? These are the questions that chew up our inner being.

What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be an "artificial" intelligence? These are deep questions best reserved for a CAPTCHA algorithm. If you think you're ready to plunge both feet into the great question of what it means to be alive, however, you can download the demo for Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human tomorrow (April 24).

Quantic Dream celebrated Detroit: Become Human going gold over on its Twitter earlier today. That's where we also learned a free demo of the game will be available ahead of its PlayStation 4 launch on May 25.

"Detroit: Become Human is no longer our game. Instead, it will soon become yours. Yours to play, to own, to hopefully cherish," writes Quantic Dream co-founder Guillaume de Fondaumiere on the PlayStation Blog. "The fate of Connor, Kara and Markus is in your hands, along with the fate of all other characters in the game."

de Fondaumiere goes on to announce the upcoming demo for Detroit: Become Human, which contains the game's first story scene, "Hostage." You might remember the scene from last year's PSX presentation, during which the audience chipped in to save a fish that'd been beached by the in-game hullaballoo.

"S A V E H I M (you can't)"

You can download the Detroit: Become Human demo tomorrow, Tuesday April 24, at 12:01 a.m. EST on the PS Store. We already have some preliminary hints, tips, and guides for you to look over on Detroit: Become Human, so go on and give yourself that golden advantage. You deserve it for deciding to delve deep into the meaning of life and sentience.
