Yesterday saw the release of a live-action trailer from Square-Enix and Eidos-Montréal for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The trailer shows the change in humanity since the end of Deus EX: Human Revolution, “outlining the shift from the golden era of augmentation to the Mechanical Apartheid.”
In 2027, mechanically-augmented people all over the world suffered from extreme psychotic delusions, lost control of themselves, and started attacking people. Millions died. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and maimed. In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws. The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial “Human Restoration Act”, aimed at isolating “Augs” and keeping them away from “Naturals”.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set for release on August 23rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The trailer is available below.
Who’s looking forward to Mankind Divided? I really enjoyed Human Revolution and am excited with the changes that have been made. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
