Here's a good way of figuring out if a game is close to release: count the number of trailers that come out on a weekly basis. Square Enix has been a media-producing machine, churning out new dev diaries and gameplay videos of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on a regular basis. Many of us are attempting a media blackout before the game's August 23rd release, and Square Enix is definitely not making it easy.
The latest trailer is arguably less exciting than the one crafted for E3, but it is far more telling of the overall story of the game. In fact, it may even be considered "spoilery" for some, as it focuses on the conspiratorial aspect of the story. Watch at your own risk!
