First, let's assume that people are fine with installing cybernetic implants that require taking drugs the rest of your life. Second, let's also assume that those implants are controlled by a mega-corporation, and it doesn't have your best interests at heart.  Welcome to Deus Ex!

This unsettling situation sets the stage for the world in Square Enix's upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You can learn more in the trailer below, but don't expect to see any actual gameplay or story info. Instead, the video focusing on conveying the problems with the game's take on cybernetic augmentation.

For more Deus Ex, you can watch this video about the game's futuristic sprawl, or this one that covers a little bit of everything.
