Eidos Montreal has released a live-action trailer for its upcoming title, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, introducing the game’s setting and premise. Called The Mechanical Apartheid, it gives us a glimpse of what can happen if technology falls into the wrong hands.
The video above comes with the following synopsis:
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 releases on August 23 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, complete with a Collector’s Edition and Season Pass. For more details 0n that, click here.
