At the Game Developers Conference 2018, Quantic Dream developers showed two presentations in which they detailed the technology used in Detroit: Become Human. During the panels, the studio also revealed the game’s PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements.
Check out the “interview” videos of the 3 main characters of Detroit: Become Human, feauting some behind-the-scenes footage:
“In the first presentation, we learn that Quantic Dream used new technology to develop Detroit, and prioritized graphics over frame rate. The studio stressed that the upcoming title is not an action game requiring a high frame rate, and said that the developers avoided lengthy loading screens wherever possible.
In terms of graphics on the base console and PS4 Pro, here’s what you can expect:
- 1080p at 30 FPS
- Volumetric lighting: 192x108x64
- Support HDR TV
- 2160p checkerboard at 30 FPS
- GUI in full 2160p
- Volumetric lighting: 235x135x64
- Support HDR TV
The second presentation details the lighting technology used in Detroit, and offers an interesting history of development from Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls to the upcoming title.
For those into all things tech and game development, both presentations are an interesting read so make sure to follow the embedded links.
Detroit: Become Human will release on May 25 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
About Detroit: Become Human
In a dystopian vision of our near future, Detroit is the story of three androids, three machines designed to obey, who start to feel emotions. Confronted with persecution and the violence of society, they will all have to decide who they want to be.
Connor is a prototype designed to help human investigators on cases involving androids; Kara becomes a fugitive by empathizing with a little girl, united in their dream of freedom; Markus will become the leader of the android revolution.
The player will control all three in turn, taking control of their destinies, and telling not only their individual stories, but also the story of their people and of their world.
Detroit is by far the most ambitious title ever created by Quantic Dream; with this game, we wanted to push our limits by creating the most bending game we have ever made. Your actions have real and spectacular consequences: there are entire scenes that you can see or miss based on your actions, your closest allies may help you until the end or die just after you meet them, your destiny itself can be totally different depending on your choices. You must also be very careful with your three main characters, because any of them may die at any time.
Each story is almost as unique as your DNA: it is the result of the choices you made, the minor ones and the important ones, because in Detroit, all choices matter. You will need to observe, think, decide, feel, follow your intuition or your heart, to tell the unique stories of each character, and their stories will become your personal story.“
