Following yesterday's leak and subsequent announcement as the cover story for GameInformer magazine, Square Enix has revealed the first official trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This latest entry in the franchise is a direct sequel to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, with Adam Jensen returning as the main protagonist.
Starting a few days ago, the publisher launched an ARG livestream teasing the game, ending with the announcement trailer, which you can check below. Square Enix states that the release date will be announced at a later time.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the infamous ‘Aug Incident’ in Panchaea that resulted in the death of millions at the hands of those who had installed augmentations. This event has created a huge divide between those who have augmentations, and those who do not. Amongst this emotional turmoil are various factions looking to manipulate the public by twisting public opinion of augmentation to further their own agenda and hide the truth of what really happened.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided also continues the story of Adam Jensen, a former biotech company security chief turned super-augmented, anti-terrorist agent playing by his own rules. Jensen has been empowered with all new augmentations, enabling him and the player a greater sense of self-control as they explore all new locations in-game. As social and political tensions reach a major turning point, Jensen and conspiracies surrounding the Illuminati continue toward an inevitable crossroads … and possibly, an epic showdown.
