Live Action Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Trailer Pushes Sci-fi Buttons With The Mechanical Apartheid

Dues Ex: Mankind Divided is a series that has taken on some big questions in its time. The games ask questions about being human, augmentation and racism, which are topics we will most certainly be talking about in the coming decades.

To highlight some of those themes which are coming to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Eidos Montreal have put out this live action trailer which focuses on the major issues the game throws up. Mainly, about the segregation between the augmented and those who are not. It’s a pretty charged little bit of advertising.

I think the whole ‘Apartheid’ angle is… controversial, just because of how politically charged that word is, but I’m willing to see how the game uses it before making any sweeping statements here.
