Detroit: Become Human Walkthrough

4. The Bad Playthrough (I'LL BE BACK, JUST A MACHINE)

A QUICK DETOUR BEFORE WE START...

While we have the first playthrough mapped out in our flowcharts, there's a magazine we want to grab now rather than have to re-write a whole bunch of the story at the end of the following playthrough.

Go to Chapter Select, choose NIGHT OF THE SOUL and go to Markus' timeline. Play through the chapter and at the end choose violent attack to liberate the androids. Play through to BATTLE FOR DETROIT. Make whatever decisions you want but keep Markus alive until Kara and Alice reach the bus depot. Because Markus is conducting a violent attack, you should find Magazine No. 46 - Detroit Today: Civil War in Detroit in the near right corner, next to a big pile of luggage. I have had varying reports as to whether the game will save your magazine pickup as soon as you see it (meaning you can quit out) or if you have to finish off the chapter. I'd suggest finishing the chapter to be safe, or at least get to a checkpoint and check your Extras menu.

THE BAD PLAYTHROUGH

For our second playthrough everything’s going to go pretty wrong. We’re not aiming for a total disaster here, but we are going to get Connor killed many times and get a lot of people angry. In the meantime we’re going to pick up as many of the remaining magazine covers as we can based on choices made. Start on CASUAL difficulty.

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!


I'm mentioning all of the magazines available here again, even if they were in our first playthrough, in case you missed some or you are skipping ahead to this playthrough.
