Detroit: Become Human Walkthrough

3. The Good Playthrough (SURVIVORS & PARTNERS)

For this first playthrough we will be aiming pretty much for a “perfect” ending, though of course in a game like this “good” and “bad” is all a matter of perspective. Basically we’re going to get a successful peaceful victory for all of our characters and everyone’s going to get along wonderfully.

While we do this, we’re going to pick up as many magazine covers as we can through one playthrough and mop up some other miscellaneous trophies as well. You should play on CASUAL difficulty because we’re also going to attempt to not lose any fights, so you want those QTEs to be nice and easy.

Make sure to start a NEW STORY and continue each chapter one after the other; DO NOT use Chapter Select to skip back and forward between chapters to change things, as this may void some trophies. If you skip chapters already played the choices and consequences won’t update! The only acceptable time to use Chapter Select is if you mess something up and need to go back, but you MUST play every subsequent chapter from the point of the mistake again. You can't skip back to where you got to because the choices in between won't update. Try to get things right first time to save pain!
