A couple of days back we got our first brief peek at the next game in the Deus Ex video game franchise, titled Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Now today an official announcement trailer for the sequel from developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix has been released online.
Unlike yesterday, this is a full cinematic trailer and lays out what the game will be about. There’s no actual gameplay to see yet, but it’s still early. You can watch the Mankind Divided announcement trailer and learn more about the game below.
Here’s a chunk of the press release sent out by Square Enix, which includes a description of the game, quote, and information on the shiny new technology being used to create it:
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.
