“Deus Ex: Mankind Divided directly follows the aftermath of the Aug Incident, a day when mechanically augmented citizens all over the world were stripped of control over their minds and bodies, resulting in the deaths of millions of innocents. The year is now 2029, and the golden era of augmentations is over. Mechanically augmented humans have been deemed outcasts and segregated from the rest of society.

Official announcement trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This a the sequel to the excellent Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Like that game, it’s all very black and gold, with symbolic political and religious undertones to it, along with the ethical issues of augmentation. The combat also looks rather brutal, showing protagonist Adam Jensen equipped with some rather snazzy upgrades.
I’ll be keeping my eye on this one. Onwards!
