It's been several years since gamers last got their hands on a Quantic Dream release, and that's because the developer has been hard at work on its latest narrative adventure, this time set in a not-too-distant future where humans are constantly at odds with androids. Like other studio releases before it, Detroit: Become Human is a game that puts players in control of a deep and complicated narrative where each decision has an impact on the story.
We're going to get this out of the way now — almost everything there is to say about Detroit: Become Human can be construed as a spoiler. Seemingly insignificant things like finding or not finding an object can have a major impact on the story somewhere down the line, which means it's very difficult to discuss even minor details without a broader discussion of their ultimate effects. This guide hub is entirely spoiler-free, but be on the lookout for the above spoiler alert image in every guide where spoilers can be either potential or abundant. As always, reader discretion is advised.
Detroit: Become Human Chapters, 100% Completions, and Endings
For convenience, we've numbered each of the different chapters in Detroit: Become Human below. However, players won't necessarily see each and every chapter during their runs through the game, as different decisions made at various branch points can affect everything from what objects and paths are available in one chapter all the way down to who lives or dies in another.
As such, players may find themselves skipping around between these guides in an attempt to find more details concerning the chapters they're presented with. Don't worry, though — if there's ever an action or decision that affects the outcome of a chapter in a major way, we'll point it out and provide information on where, when, and what decision to make in order to go down a different path.
