Back in April we saw the excellent cinematic announcement trailer for the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution sequel, titled Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
As expected developer Eidos Montreal unveiled the first look at the gameplay of Mankind Divided, also in the form of a trailer, during publisher Square Enix’s E3 2015 showcase presentation.
You can check out the E3 gameplay trailer below, and also an added bonus tech demo video that offers a look at the Dawn Engine that was used to create the game.
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.
