A new short was released from the offices of Square Enix, detailing the aftermath of the events following Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The golden era of augmentation has ended and a new era has been ushered in known as the Mechanical Apartheid.

Augmented humans began losing control of themselves in 2027 and started attacking each other, with many having died in this disaster. Society has since separated itself by hatred following the cataclysm and new laws have been implemented to isolate these augmented humans, separating them from regular humans (Naturals). Deus Ex: Mankind Divided puts players back in the shoes of Adam Jensen, protagonist from the previous Deus Ex titles and now a covert agent. He’s now working against time to solve a global conspiracy with new state of the art weapons and technology.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launches on August 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
