As you might have been able to tell from our Deus Ex retrospective, we here at Xbox Wire are big fans of the seminal shooter/stealth/RPG hybrid series that changed gaming forever. With today’s official announcement and release of the first trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we’re excited to continue the augment-powered adventures of Adam Jensen. This gorgeous video, which you can watch above, will give you just a little taste of what’s in store for players when the game releases on Xbox One.
According to developer Eidos-Montreal, the game directly follows the aftermath of the Aug Incident, a day when mechanically augmented citizens all over the world were stripped of control over their minds and bodies, resulting in the deaths of millions of innocents. The year is now 2029, and the golden era of augmentations is over. Mechanically augmented humans have been deemed outcasts and segregated from the rest of society. Crime and acts of terror serve as a thin veil to cover up an overarching conspiracy aimed at controlling the future of mankind.
