New Deus Ex trailer is a perfect introduction to the game's cyberpunk future

New, 3 comments

If you're new to the Deus Ex universe — or it's just been a while since you've played — the latest trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a great way to get up to speed. The six-minute-long clip is narrated by protagonist Adam Jensen, as he outlines the state of the dystopian world featured in the game, in which augmented humans — such as Jensen — are now considered dangers to society.

The trailer serves as an ideal refresher considering the last game in the series, Human Revolution, launched way back in 2011. It even digs into the gameplay elements, giving you a look at the various weapons and augmented gadgets that Jensen will have at his disposal. It's also just a great opportunity to gawk at the incredible visual design found throughout, with incredibly detailed environments filled with slick, stylish technology.

Now is a great time to catch up, too — Mankind Divided will be launching in just a few months, hitting the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on August 23rd.
