Square Enix just released the official launch trailer for “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” earlier today, ahead of the Aug. 23 release of the first-person RPG on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The trailer may be a short one, but it’s enough to showcase Adam Jensen’s wrath against the Illuminati.
On the official PlayStation blog, Sacha Ramtohul, the community manager of Eidos-Montreal — the developer behind the much anticipated video game — expressed how excited they are to finally release “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” just five more days from today. Ramtohul also stated that the team responsible for the video game is thrilled for fans to try their hand at tackling the challenges that await them. To resonate their excitement to expectant fans, Eidos-Montreal released the launch trailer for the game on YouTube
The trailer is barely two minutes long, but in such a short time, fans can see the different attacks of Adam Jensen against the Illuminati — the people who are accountable for the cataclysm that has divided mankind. The mechanically augmented protagonist could even be seen venting his anger after seeing the Illuminati terrorizing other people.
According to the game description of “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided,” the RPG follows the story of "Deus Ex" protagonist Adam Jensen as he fights the Illuminati to save the world that is set in the not-so-distant future of 2029. While “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” is set for release on Aug. 23, gamers who have pre-ordered their copies on PlayStation Store can expect them to preload on Aug. 21.
Meanwhile, the mobile turn-based puzzle installment of the “Deus Ex” series, called “Deus Ex Go,” already made its debut today. And so far, the newest entry in Square Enix’s Go series received rave reviews for its smart, tricky, yet rewarding puzzles.
GameSpot praised Square Enix Montreal for once again maintaining the excellence of the Go series with this new offering. The site also stated that the game is worth playing despite its few lapses because of the compelling puzzle experience it provides.
IGN also voiced out the same sentiments about “Deus Ex Go” being a quality game because of the rewarding experience it provides every time a puzzle is solved. The San Francisco-based company even noted, “Though the world around those puzzles is relatively empty and replay potential is limited, Square Enix Montreal has mixed a healthy stealth and hacking focus with a bit of action to create a clever and, at times, truly testing set of brain teasers.”
It is also good to note that “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” is expected to receive positive reviews, with Gamingbolt leaking EDGE’s rating of 9/10 for the game though the embargo has yet to be lifted.
