Live-Action “Mechanical Apartheid” Trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have revealed a new live-action trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Featured above, the “Mechanical Apartheid” trailer showcases the games controversial and yet ambitious approach to a near-future in which augmented humans are ostracized from regular human life, following the golden age of human augmentation.

This somewhat stems from the earlier events in the game’s universe, which Square Enix detailed:

In 2027, mechanically-augmented people all over the world suffered from extreme psychotic delusions, lost control of themselves, and started attacking people. Millions died. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and maimed.

In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws. The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial “Human Restoration Act”, aimed at isolating “Augs” and keeping them away from “Naturals”.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is coming August 23rd, 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One,
