Following the premature leak (and subsequent confirmation) of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided last night, Square Enix has revealed the CG trailer for the upcoming sequel.
Featured above, you can view the debut CG trailer for the game. The upcoming follow-up is going to be set in the year 2029, two years after the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Square Enix:
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.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is built within Eidos Montreal’s new Dawn Engine, which the developed created for current generation consoles and PCs. The new Deus Ex is also going to support AMD’s TressFX, and DirectX 12.
