Square Enix has released the first trailer for the newly announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is a direct sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Mankind Divided will take place two years after the events of the first game and Adam Jensen will return as the main character, albeit with a new badass beard. His augmentations have also been amped up to make him an even more formidable force than he was in Human Revolution.
The game will feature the new Dawn Engine, which was built for current-gen consoles and PCs. You can see it in action by checking out the first trailer for the game above. There is not release date at this time, but the game will ship for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC platforms.
About Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
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.
