Official Press Release

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – 26 May 2016 – Today, Square-Enix® and Eidos®-Montréal unveiled their Live Action Trailer for the much anticipated Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™. This short immerses you in the world of Deus Ex®, providing you with insight as to how things have changed since the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution®, outlining the shift from the golden era of augmentation to the Mechanical Apartheid.

In 2027, mechanically-augmented people all over the world suffered from extreme psychotic delusions, lost control of themselves, and started attacking people. Millions died. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and maimed. In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws. The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial “Human Restoration Act”, aimed at isolating “Augs” and keeping them away from “Naturals”.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on August 23rd for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
