There is a lot to pick apart in the Detroit: Become Human ending, and now that Quantic Dream’s sci-fi opus has joined the PS Plus Collection games list on PS5, there will be a whole wealth of new emotionally devastated players dying to join the Detroit: Become Human ending discussion. Was your ending the right one? Did you fail the android resistance? Could things really have worked out that differently? Don’t worry guys and girls, because we’re here to breakdown all the various possible Detroit: Become Human endings the game has to offer, and maybe even provide you with a pack of kleenex or two. We hope it goes without saying, but the below video is packed full of spoilers for Detroit: Become Human - so watch at your own risk.
It’s very possible to die during the second half of Detroit. For keeps. While Connor continues to be replaced each time he is killed, Kara and Markus have no such luxury, so once Markus crawls out of that pit, and once Kara flees Todd’s house with Alice… they can and will die if you make the wrong decisions. We discuss this idea of death in the video.
The endings you get very much depend on how you play the game, and whether you fail or complete certain tasks along the way. Jess and myself had very different conclusions to Kara’s story, for example, based on a scenario that happens quite near the end. It’s very possible, however, that you can die well before the conclusion. Equally, we had very similar ends to Markus’ story.
And then there’s Alice. We won’t spoil it here, but the way you interact with her will change things significantly, and once you reach the end of the game, the way you’ve chosen to treat and respond to her will definitely influence how you feel about a second playthrough. And you really, really need to do a second playthrough to experience all Detroit: Become Human’s endings. In fact, you may need to journey through the story 3-4 times before you’ve seen the majority of it.
And don’t forget to check out the Detroit: Become Human secret ending post-credits, which gives a neat little flourish to Detroit’s overall presentation and meta-game. We’ve included our video for that below, because we may as well go weapons-free at this point.
