Unfortunately, Markus has a good chance of dying in different parts of the game if you are not aware. If Markus dies, you won’t get the good ending of Detroit Become Human. During the « Freedom March » mission, choose to flee when human soldiers threaten to open fire on the group. You may lose the respect of Jericho and the Josh, North and Simon group, but Markus will live.
At the very end, if you fail to get Connor out of Amanda’s planned reprogramming, Connor will pull out his weapon to try to kill Markus, the deviant leader. Make sure you find Connor’s emergency exit in the snowy landscape so he can store his gun.
Throughout the android rebellion, you must make Markus choose a peaceful path. No human deaths, no degradation and in the end, choose the manifestation rather than the revolution.
→ How to keep North alive :
During the « crossroads » mission, after setting off the bomb in the hold of the boat, you must flee the scene with the group. You must save North when she falls to the ground otherwise her adventure and romance with Markus will stop abruptly.

The other conditions to get the best out of Detroit Become Human :
There are other things to know to get the best ending of the game. It will not be enough to keep all the characters alive, you will also have to make some key choices as you progress to ensure a release from the android cause.
- Markus’ important choices :
Concerning Markus, during the machine revolution you should never choose an aggressive path. Choose to be peaceful at all times. Even when the game invites you to move to the dark side, don’t lose it and continue to resolve this conflict without violence. Humans are the bad guys, not androids. Kill no one, and do not degrade anything to win public favor.
When Richard Perkins, the FBI agent, makes you a proposal in the last chapter of the « Battle for Detroit », don’t accept the deal. Man lies, if you accept a lot of people will die and the story will turn on a bad ending.
- Connor’s important choices :
Connor is just as important, if not the most important character in Detroit Become Human. During the investigation with Hank, make sure you become friends with him so he doesn’t commit suicide at the end of the game. Tell yourself Amanda’s not your friend, so don’t trust her ! Note that in the meeting area with Amanda, there is a machine where Connor can put his hand. This machine is Connor’s exit point when Amanda tries to reprogram him to kill Markus.
At the crossroads mission, there will be a confrontation between Markus and Connor. This is the moment Connor must become a Deviant. So make sure you listen to Markus and let him enlist you in the android cause.
- Important choices for Kara :
To get the best possible end to the game, you will also need to complete a few specific points about Kara. In addition to keeping her, Alice and Luther alive, you must imperatively play dead and not move during the shooting in the mission of the « crossroads ». In the last chapter of the « Battle for Detroit », don’t choose to take the detour, go through the control post and stay calm.
Don’t sacrifice anyone and everything will go well during this step. Finally when you get to the station to take the bus, steal the bus tickets from the family and keep them to cross the border into Canada with your three characters.
