Game developer Quantic Dream announced that popular video game Detroit: Become Human has surpassed a certain milestone.
The game has surpassed 5 million units sold worldwide after one month since the launch on Steam. Other games that came with it were Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls.
Quantic Dream also launched Detroit: Community Play together with the base game on Steam as an intuitive Twitch extension. It allows streamers and their viewers to collectively make in-game decisions in real-time. This new extension has made a new form of interactive engagement on Twitch, which got a lot of positive feedback from fans and has quickly grown in popularity among streamers and their communities. Almost 500 streamers have already played the game with this poll-based Twitch overlay.
Korean streamer Kumikomii stated:
I could immerse myself in streaming and connect with my audience much better thanks to the Community Play Twitch extension. It was refreshing to play while the audience led me to whole new situations and scenario branches that I would not have discovered playing on my own. The overlay interface fits so well with Detroit’s art direction that some of my viewers thought it was part of the game itself. I had so much fun that I played three more days until reaching the end of the game.
Guillaume de Fondaumière, Co-CEO and Head of Publishing at Quantic Dream said:
Launching Detroit: Become Human™ on Steam has been a delightful experience for us. The response we’re seeing has been incredibly positive, in particular in Asian markets. We are also thrilled by the response garnered by the concomitant release of our Community Play extension for streamers and viewers on Twitch, which elevated a fundamentally single player game into a social experience.
