Deus Ex: Human Revolution: How Eidos made the world of 2027 today

In the future of Deus Ex, dissidents will raise their fists for a new kind of revolution in human rights. The debate over whether or not citizens should be allowed to augment their bodies with nanotech will be a major theme in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. As Adam Jensen, a private security officer for leading nanotech manufacturer Sarif Industries, you’ll see the aftermath and effects of the raging debate firsthand as you explore the game’s Blade Runner-esque world set in the not-so-distant-future of 2027.

For more on how developer Eidos plans to translate and augment the idea behind the transhumanism movement with super strength and speed mods in its upcoming action RPG, check out this exclusive behind-the-scenes video. In it, you’ll get a better idea of what the development team is aiming for when it comes to the game’s aesthetics, mood, and narrative.
