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.
