French studio Quantic Dream is giving fans a new way to experience its latest release, Detroit: Become Human, with a Twitch extension aimed at streamers. The Detroit: Community Play extension will let streamers easily send out polls to their viewers related to the decisions posed by the game’s branching narrative–something Detroit streamers have done in a more informal way since the game’s release.
Like other Quantic Dream games, Detroit: Become Human is a narrative-heavy game where the outcome of different situations is influenced by the decisions the player chooses, or the relationships they build with characters. The new extension is designed to simulate a multiplayer experience, letting viewers have a say in the direction the playthrough will go.
The feature will be demoed by Bryan Dechart and his partner Amelia Rose Blair. Both actors appeared in Detroit: Become Human, and later gathered a large following on Twitch when they streamed their first playthrough of the game they worked on. The duo are now Twitch Partners under their channel Dechart Games.
While Dechart and Blair are now Twitch veterans, their demo will come as part of Quantic Dream’s first ever livestream on its own channel. The stream is set to be a big one, celebrating both the Heavy Rain 10-year anniversary and the Detroit: Become Human 2-year anniversary with Q&As from actors involved in both games.
Keep an eye out for the anniversary stream on Twitch on May 25 at 2 PM ET, including the demo and launch of Detroit: Community Play.
