Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gets a debut trailer

Don't pretend like you didn't ask for it.

Yesterday Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was revealed via the new Game Informer cover and now publisher Square Enix has released a debut trailer advertising its next entry in the fan-favourite sci-fi saga about man's rocky relationship with technology.

In development for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set in 2029, two years after the last entry, Human Revolution. That game's third act contained a scene in which those with cybernetic enhancements all went temporarily berserk at the hands of a conspiracy, which has since led to mass distrust against folks with augmented parts. This includes our hero, Adam Jensen, who is now working for an Interpol task force bent on stopping terrorists who would use their augmentations for nefarious purposes. It all sounds rather X-Men, only with cybernetic enhancements instead of genetic mutations, which are a little different as the former is usually voluntary. There are exceptions though.

The PC version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will feature DirectX 12 support as well as AMD's TressFX, so it should look pretty spiffy. Here's the cinematic announcement trailer:
