Marcus is the game’s third playable character.
Quantic Dream’s upcoming neo-noir adventure, Detroit: Become Human, has a new cast member: Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams.
The actor plays a character named Marcus, and he was unveiled in a new gameplay demo on-stage, which saw him leading a group of androids in revolt against Detroit’s humans.
Williams confirmed the news on Twitter, where he retweeted several mentions of the latest footage and simply said “It goes down in Detroit.” Developer Quantic Dream confirmed on Twitter that Marcus is the third playable character in Detroit, joining previously-revealed characters Kara and Connor.
Detroit: Become Human was announced during Sony’s Paris Games Week keynote in 2015. Based on Quantic Dream’s “Kara” tech demo from 2012, Detroit: Become Human follows a number of playable characters in a world of sentient androids.
The story of Detroit: Become Human, similar to Heavy Rain, will feature several branching paths depending on player choices and character deaths. For more on the games of E3 2017, stay tuned to our E3 event hub.
