Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Announced For Current Gen / PC

Square Enix took the wraps off of the latest entry in the Deus Ex franchise this morning with the announcement of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.  Human Revolution’s protagonist Adam Jensen returns in this latest cyberpunk action RPG set in the not-so distant future of 2029 – where the humankind is further divided between those who have cybernetic enhancements and those who do not.

This reveal was widely expected after Square’s #CantStopProgress marketing campaign kicked into gear three days ago with a mysterious twitch stream featuring individuals in solitary confinement. To be brutally honest I did not see the appeal in watching a fictionalized account of solitary confinement and torture to promote a videogame. Yet thousands of people did tuned into the twitch stream over the preceding 72 hrs… let’s remember that isolation in the prison system is a very real issue and to take the idea and use it for the promotion of a video game is beyond fucked up in my opinion.

Regardless of their tasteless marketing choices we’ll probably hear more about Dues Ex: Mankind Divided at this year’s E3 in July. Check out the reveal trailer below.
