Quantic Dream’s PlayStation 4 exclusive, Detroit: Become Human, is getting a free demo this week.

Detroit: Become Human has gone gold, and will also get a free PlayStation 4 demo in advance of its full release. The demo – called Hostage – features the game’s first scene, and will be available from Tuesday, April 24, 2018.

Guillaume de Fondaumiere, co-CEO of Quantic Dream, said in a post on the PlayStation Blog:

“David Cage, the entire team and myself are proud of the work we have accomplished during these four years. We are grateful to all our wonderful actors, composers, artists and partners around the world who have lent their talent to making Detroit: Become Human the very special experience it has become.”

We’re pretty dubious about the prospects for Detroit: Become Human, if we’re honest. We’ve been mostly underwhelmed by the game’s E3 showings, and last year’s allegations around the working culture at Quantic Dream have left a nasty taste in the mouth.

The demo will give us an opportunity to address our concerns on the gameplay front, at least. And on the latter point, the studio has recently begun legal proceedings against French newspaper, Le Monde, and the website, Mediapart. We’ll be following the case with interest.

The Detroit: Become Human demo also includes an extended Alexa Skill, named CyberLife. The skill will assist in decision-making throughout the Hostage demo, and give a deeper look at its characters.

Detroit: Become Human will be released on PlayStation 4 on May 25, 2018.
