The mod, made by Nexus Mods user 'InterestingMK', swaps Kara's model with her original model from the tech demo that inspired Detroit: Become Human. While it is bizarre to see the semi-naked model in the harsh Michigan winter, it is good to see the mod acknowledge how the concept for the game has evolved over time.
Quantic Dream's most recent interactive drama began life as a 2012 tech demo for the PlayStation 3 titled Kara, which depicted the eponymous android gaining sentience during her construction. After it received critical acclaim and strong reactions from critics and fans alike, it was adapted and expanded into Detroit: Become Human.
Though there are very few mods available for Quantic Dream games, considering how tightly paced they are, the fact that they are available on PC means that a wider audience can appreciate these interactive dramas as they push the boundaries of presentation and story. Last year, the French developer received considerable investment from NetEase. This substantial investment from the Chinese online tech company allowed Quantic Dream to release Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit: Become Human, and Heavy Rain on PC and will lead to the Paris-based developer's next-gen games to be multiplatform.
The upcoming ninth generation of consoles should allow Quantic Dream to surpass the already-high standard set by Detroit: Become Human and it will be exciting to see how it will use the greater power of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to tell compelling narratives.
In the meantime, Detroit: Become Human is available on PC and should be able to run on a good number of systems, as per its surprising low system requirements.
Detroit: Become Human is available now on PC and PS4.
