Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s subtitle suddenly gets ambiguous

Here’s the latest story trailer for next month’s cyber-punk first-person RPG Deus Ex: Human Revolution. If you like your futures golden and dystopian, then it’s a game you should be getting rabidly excited for – I know I am.

We’ve seen bits and pieces of plotlines in previous trailers, but they haven’t exactly revealed the crux of the narrative. That’s changed in this latest trailer as we see what overarching conspiracy galvanizes protagonist Adam Jensen into action: Purists (people vehemently opposed to cybernetic augmentations) being controlled through implants in order to carry out terrorist activities. It’s also ironic!

For those of you who have been keeping up with the Dues Ex: Human Revolution comics that have been published in the months leading up to the game’s release, then you’ll be able to see a number of those story elements coming through in this trailer. If you haven’t read the DC published prequel comics then you can buy digital copies and read them online here. Alternatively hit up the Xcomics app on the App Store to get reading on your iPhone or iPad.
