Detroit: Become Human Hostage demo - how to get every ending

Detroit: Become Human is arriving on May 25, and if you've read our recent hands-on preview then you'll know it's a smarter, more emotional game than you might think. We felt some genuine emotions while playing it, but now you don't just have to take our word for it as a demo has appeared on the PlayStation Store, meaning you can try it out in the comfort of your own home.

This demo lets you play through a scene titled The Hostage, where you take the part of a negotiator trying to resolve a hostage situation with a deviant android but *plot twist* you're an android too. Depending on what clues you find during your investigation and the dialogue choices you make, you'll get one of six possible endings - most of which don't work out particularly well for you.

By viewing the in-game Flowchart you can track the various decisions and actions you take, though until you actually pass through and unlock the different options on there it's difficult to use it to plan out your route to a new ending. If you follow the steps in our guide, which are listed from the point you finish talking to Capt. Allen (where the demo loops back to when you play again) then you can reach all six different endings with minimal fuss.

Note: the steps listed below are not the only way to achieve each particular ending as there are multiple routes, but they have been tried and tested.
