The almost continual promotional build up for Deus Ex: Human Revolution has me foaming at the mouth wanting this game. This new trailer shows some of the shadowy forces that the main protagonist, Adam Jensen, will be hunting. Knowing how deep the the original game went into the murky world of The Illuminati and similar groups, Human Revolution looks to be following the same dark path.
As a Deus Ex fanboy, these trailers have convinced me that Eidos Montreal have at the very least, nailed the look and the aesthetic of the series. The game’s grim, urban dystopias fit right in with the cyberpunk stylings Deus Ex is known for. Again there’s the obligatory takedown sequence where Adam uses his wrist blades on some poor unsuspecting fool. These are getting more wince-inducing the more I see them.
If you’ve read the prequel novel, Icarus Effect, you might also recognize some of the characters in the trailer here, but I won’t spoil any details for anyone. The game’s still on track for it’s late August release which for me, just ain’t soon enough.
