Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – The Mechanical Apartheid live-action trailer By Erren Van Duine on May 26, 2016 at 1:18 PM

Square Enix has revealed a new live-action trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided today, focusing on the game’s world and how things have changed since the end of Human Revolution with the fall of the golden era into a “mechanical apartheid.”

We’ve included a short summary and the video below:

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 launches on August 23 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
