Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Announcement Trailer

Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal released a trailer today for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – coming soon.

According to developer Eidos-Montreal, the game directly follows the aftermath of the Aug Incident, a day when mechanically augmented citizens all over the world were stripped of control over their minds and bodies, resulting in the deaths of millions of innocents. The year is now 2029, and the golden era of augmentations is over. Mechanically augmented humans have been deemed outcasts and segregated from the rest of society. Crime and acts of terror serve as a thin veil to cover up an overarching conspiracy aimed at controlling the future of mankind.

For a look back at the Deus Ex series, check out A God from the Machines: The Story of Deus Ex’s Success over at Xbox Wire.

In the next few months, Xbox will be partnering with Hauppauge to release a lower cost version of this tuner, the Hauppauge TV Tuner for Xbox One, retailing for MSRP $59.99, and available to everyone in the U.S. and Canada.

We are also pleased to announce that we are expanding support for the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner to preview members in 11 more European countries starting today, adding Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland.

We’re thrilled to reveal that Xbox is a digital distribution launch partner and we’re offering exclusive incentives for Xbox customers who purchase the Saga on Xbox Video!

Microsoft is offering two exclusive incentives for fans who purchase the six-film bundle on Xbox Video.

In addition, Disney is offering a Star Wars featurette video exclusively for Xbox customers; only by pre-purchasing the Saga on Xbox Video will you receive an exclusive roughly 60 second sneak peek at the bonus material included in the Star Wars Digital Movie Collection. Customers will receive the Xbox-exclusive featurette when they pre-purchase the “Star Wars” saga bundle on Xbox Video, then all six epic films in the Saga will be added to their collection in all their high-definition glory on April 10.

Xbox Video is available today as a free download on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8/RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone. Verify Xbox Video availability and system requirements.

May the Force be with you!
