In an attempt to build hype ahead of the upcoming E3 shenanigans, Square Enix has today announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Mankind Divided is the sequel to Eidos Montreal’s 2011 hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes place just two years after the events of Human Revolution. Here are Square Enix’s first hints at the story’s synopsis:
“The game takes place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the infamous ‘Aug Incident’ in Panchaea, which ended the golden era of human augmentation. These terrible events scarred the world and caused augmented people to be segregated and deemed as outcasts.
Mankind Divided also sees the return of Adam Jensen as our main character, who is now a counter-terrorism agent playing by his own rules. Equipped with all new augmentations, Jensen will travel across the world to unravel a vast conspiracy involving secret organizations, which are working behind the scenes in an attempt to control the fate of mankind.”
Game Informer officially broke news of the game via their May cover story. However, details and images from Mankind Divided were leaked early by a posting on NeoGAF. You can find a gallery of those images below, as well as Square Enix’s official announcement trailer.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is “coming soon” to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
