Deus Ex: Human Revolution

One Last Prelaunch Look At Adam Jensen's Plight

One of the main themes in Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the balance between humanity and technology. In the game's 2027 world, science has allowed people to enhance their natural abilities via implanted augmentations. These can make the average person faster or stronger, provided they have the cash. This is something that protagonist Adam Jensen grapples with as he navigates his way through a series of conspiracies.

In addition to raising philosophical issues, the prelaunch trailer shows off a few snippets of new gameplay footage. Players can get a glimpse of Jensen using his melee attacks, throwing enemies into the air with an AoE-style attack, and even taking on a fearsome mechanized cube. Check it out below.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution ships tomorrow, August 23, on the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3.

  • I still would have liked a demo... But i'm going for it... picking up my copy day 1
  • So excited for this game! Can't wait for tomorrow!

  • Sweet!

  • downloading off steam now, looks great

  • Sorry but I will have to see what the combined review score settles at.

    Edit one minute later: Ben Kuchera just posted, looking good so far.
  • This game looks and sounds amazing. I'm really sad that I won't be able to pick this up tomorrow but I'm gonna try to get it as soon as possible.

  • Augmented Edition is preordered and only 8$ left to pay off. Tomorrow will be fun.

  • Wish I had the moneys for this... But Rage, Skyrim and BF3 are more important, even if I do still have to wait another month and a half for Rage and BF3, and 2 and a half months for Skyrim... when I could just get this now... **BRAAAHHHH**. I need to get this game!


  • any reviews yet?
  • Looks pretty ***.

  • Reviews?!?!?!


  • this seriously looks like a copy of raiden from MGS 4 so lame
  • This kicks off my fall gaming spree! Cannot wait!

  • The reviews are coming out finally! Metacritic has it stand for the 360 version at 91 as of now. Looks like I know I'm starting my fall gaming earlier than I planned.
  • I can't wait to see a review.  Great timing for a release.  People may only be making one more major game purchase before the fall releases, and this could be the one.

  • First thing tomorrow!! Going straight to UPS warehouse to pick it up. To hell with waiting. xD

  • Can't wait till tomorrow, just watched the now playing video from gamespot, it looks amazing. I'm going to try to go stealthy through my first playthrough.
  • let the reviews do justice *crosses fingers*

    sad to say but if it weren't for the availability of reviews, i'd buy this day 1 lol.

  • IGN gave it a 9... and they hate everything!!!

  • This looks amazing. Lets hope it's actually good though.
