Twenty-five years before the events of the first game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution tells the story of Adam Jensen, a security agent who’s critical injured and forced to undergo “Augmentation” in order to survive. In the future of the first game, augmentation was handled via nanotech, but at this point in time, augmentations are mechanical. So instead of an injection into your bloodstream, you get a whole new arm or leg or eyeball, for example, that’s essentially a machine. The events of this title will lead to the formation of the anti-terrorist organization UNATCO from the first game.
Like its predecessor, Human Revolution will give players freedom of choice as to how they progress through the game, using basic methods of combat, stealth, hacking, or social interaction. Every problem can be solved in one of these four methods, and you can switch between them at will.
North America gets its hands on the game on August 23rd, while it trickles down to the rest of the world in the next few days that follow. It will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows. Take a look at the fantastic screenshots and concept art from the game below.
