Square Enix has released the debut CG trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The newly announced sequel is set in 2029, two years after Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Here’s Square Enix’s official outline:
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.
The game will make use of Eidos Montreal’s new Dawn Engine, which was built for the latest generation of game consoles and PC. The game will also feature support for DirectX 12, as well as AMD’s TressFX.
