Something has gone terribly wrong with the six-million-dollar men and bionic women who have chosen to be augmented with machine upgrades. And now they are being segregated. Their plight is the focus of a new live action trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided entitled Mechanical Apartheid.
The trailer is almost four minutes long and delves into the backstory that protagonist Adam Jensen will be embroiled in when the game launches on August 23.
Here's the elevator pitch:
"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'."
