Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launch trailer

Imagine this in a dramatic narrator’s voice, if you will:

In 2029, after the Aug incident that resulted in the deaths of millions, mankind stands divided. The oppression of the mechanically augmented has created a climate of fear and resentment, resulting in an escalation of crime and acts of terror. Amid all the chaos, Adam Jensen goes after the Illuminati, the men and women responsible for tearing the world apart. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

Or so reads the marketing bumf in the press release, anyway.

No Man’s Sky is out and variously delighting/disappointing/confusing the gaming community, based on your perspective and how frankly insane you are, but the hype machine runs non-stop these days and the next big release to test the fans’ resolve is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

The Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launch trailer, released today by Square Enix and Eidos Montreal, is largely cinematic and builds the background of the human fightback against augmented superhumans, whilst simultaneously setting the stage for Adam Jensen to take on the Illuminati, because, erm, there were no better evil organisations available, presumably. It also shows off a few snippets of gameplay and some of the brand new augmentations available for Mankind Divided, which is a lot more interesting and exciting than a storyline borrowed from a Dan Brown novel (with added robot arms).

Based on everything we’ve seen the game is shaping up rather nicely, though, and the Deux Ex: Mankind Divided launch trailer does nothing but improve this assertion. There’s also a raft of collector’s editions, if you like that sort of thing; it is Square Enix, after all.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
