Detroit: Become Human is a classic example of how the video game medium has evolved in terms of its storytelling. Quantic Dream specialises in making games that are focused on the choices that players make. That’s what they did with previous games such as Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain.
Detroit: Become Human Will Now Let Streamers’ Audience Make Decisions
Detroit: Become Human’s story can drastically change based on the decisions the player makes throughout it. So, many streamers have used informal polls to let their audience choose how they play the game. This adds a fun level of randomness to a game that’s already full of consequences.
Now, Quantic Dream is adding a Twitch extension to the game that lets streamers do this officially. They’re calling it the Detroit: Community Play extension, and it will let streamers do what they’ve been doing anyway, except a bit more smoothly.
Detroit: Become Human’s Community Play Feature Will Debut On Game’s Two-Year Anniversary
They’re debuting this feature via a live stream on May 25, 2020, at 2 PM ET. This live stream is also going to be a celebration of the game’s two-year anniversary, as well as Heavy Rain’s 10-year anniversary. It’s going to be a huge event with the casts of both of those games tuning in for a Q&A session.
In fact, Detroit: Become Human stars Amelia Rose Blair and her partner Bryan Dechart are the ones who are going to play the game live. Dechart and Rose are fairly popular Twitch streamers on their own, too. They actually started off their Twitch careers playing Detroit: Become Human itself.
Detroit: Become Human Is Available On PC And PS4
This live stream is going to take place on Quantic Dream’s official Twitch channel, though. If you’ve been fans of Quantic Dream’s games for a while, this live stream should be a treat for you. Detroit: Become Human first came out in 2018 for the PlayStation 4 exclusively.
However, the game has since come out on PC as well. So, if the quarantine’s got you bored, maybe tune into this live stream and play along.
