By Tommy Robbins. With just under a week from the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have dropped one final trailer to remind you just how badass it will feel to return to the augmented body of Adam Jensen.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes place in the futuristic hellscape that is Earth in 2029. Everyone’s on edge. A sense of unease and tension mounts. The oppressed turn their rage towards their oppressors. The world is tearing itself apart. So it’s pretty much now, only we don’t get any killer cyborg arms. (Reality. Pfft.)
Jensen, basically an augmented one man army with a distaste for injustice, takes it upon himself to face the dread Illuminati responsible for all this chaos, with the help of a new arsenal of weaponry, augmented strength, and a pair of killer “fuck you” sunglasses.
Seriously, check out those sunglasses. If I got my pick of augmentations, I’d go all in on auto-sunglasses.
From Square Enix: In 2029, after the Aug incident that resulted in the deaths of millions, mankind stands divided. The oppression of the mechanically augmented has created a climate of fear and resentment, resulting in an escalation of crime and acts of terror. Amid all the chaos, Adam Jensen goes after the Illuminati, the men and women responsible for tearing the world apart. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.
‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’ augments our PS4s, PCs, and Xbox Ones on August 23.
