It’s finally official! After a viral marketing campaign on Twitch, Square Enix has revealed the next entry into their hugely popular Deus Ex videogame franchise, titled Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Not only that, but they’ve also unleashed the first trailer, and it looks totally epic. Here is today's announcement, which includes some cool and intriguing plot details, confirming the return of our main man Adam Jensen. Check it out:

We are extremely proud and excited to present you today with the announcement trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is coming soon on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Switch off the lights, turn up the volume and make sure to watch it in full screen and 1080p!

We've had the pleasure of working in collaboration with Square Enix's Visual Works studio for this trailer, to introduce the setting of Mankind Divided. The game takes place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the infamous 'Aug Incident' in Panchaea, which ended the golden era of human augmentation. These terrible events scarred the world and caused augmented people to be segregated and deemed as outcasts.

Mankind Divided also sees the return of Adam Jensen as our main character, who is now a counter-terrorism agent playing by his own rules. Equipped with all new augmentations, Jensen will travel across the world to unravel a vast conspiracy involving secret organizations, which are working behind the scenes in an attempt to control the fate of mankind.

Now, let’s have a look at that trailer, shall we? Prepare to be divided:

The upcoming game is being developed by Eidos Montreal, and there's no official release date as-of-yet, besides being told that it's coming soon (and it's Square Enix so...prepare to be patient). Still, are you guys looking forward to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Will it be a must-play game for you?
