Not familiar with the story of franchise Deus Ex? No worries, Eidos Montreal has released an animated video breaking down its world to coincide with its 15th Anniversary.
The video highlights iconic scenes from the series and outlines some of the heavy themes found in the game. The failed promises of technology, loss of freedom, and government manipulation are just a few things touched on.
Yes, the future of Deus Ex is no utopia for humanity. The next game in the series looks to continue the trend with the aptly named Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The cyberpunk action RPG launches February 23, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
As someone who isn’t really familiar with the franchise, the video provided a nice crash course of the ideas present in the game. The footage I have seen of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks impressive and is another reason while the early months of 2016 should provide gamers with a lot of options.
