Deus Ex: Human Revolution E3 trailer : Full trailer Analysis
Deus Ex : Human Revolutionâ€™s full E3 trailer has been released by Eidos and Square Enix.Â Let me be honest with this, Deus Ex is my favorite game and I was never really that optimistic if making a this gen iteration of the series was needed. Deus Ex is just too special and there were bound to be those â€œgoing all wrong with itâ€ vibes when Human Revolution was announced, especially after Invisible Wars, which being a decent game in itself, fell totally flat when compared with its predecessor.
After seeing the full trailer for Human Revolution though (even if itâ€™s mostly CGI), I can safely say that the franchiseâ€™s new iteration certainly shows promise. Gamersmint does a full analysis of the 3 min plus trailer for our readers and points out some rather interesting stuff tucked inside it.
The trailer begins with Jensen describing the situation heâ€™s in and the year when the game takes place (2027). Itâ€™s evident that the world is going through a great technological advancement phase and the trailer begins with showcasing the presence of cloaking and robotic arms in the game which can be converted into flexible weapons ranging from machine guns to several other biomechanical forms.
It then immediately shifts to a more serious note, suggesting serious political unrest and revolt among the people of Detroit city. It shows a riot scene with the police trying to sustain a crowd of people. Itâ€™s then when a rather interesting plot point is revealed. The reporter on the screen announces that the protests are against Sheriff Industries and the reason seems to be their advancements in the field of Human Augmentation Science. It seems things have turned for the worse and the public are against these un-ethical human augmentations.
It then turns out that Adam is working for the owner of the company against which the revolts are happening and he is tasked with stopping the people trying to prevent them from carrying out further augementation experiments. However, Adam does not seem willing to do the dirty work for him.
At this point another interesting sequence takes place. It shows Jensen being shot and thrown out of a building while a woman (possibly his wife/girlfriend) looking on. That incidentproduced the result of Adam being in his current augmented form. Â The trailer picks up steam from now on and shows Adam using his cloaking ability to approach a thug. The thugâ€™s brain could not control whatever was plugged into his head and shoots himself. This suggests that the mind might not be able to withstand the augmentation procedures in everybody.
The trailer than shows some of what Adam is able to do with his Augmented Arm. He first blades one of his enemies and then transforms his arm to a robotic form and squashes another.Â The trailer than shows the police fighting with the revolters and also a mech trying to restrain them. Interestingly, it can fire missiles which do not explode but serves as smoke grenades. Adamâ€™s augmented armâ€™s another use is shown right after that, it can switch its blade to any degree meaning you can kill your enemies from any angle (backwards aswell)
Things get worse from here on and it introduces who might be one of the gameâ€™s chief enemies. He appears to be a augmented human like Adam and it suggests that he is holding Adamâ€™s family ( the girl we saw earlier) hostage.
Finally it shows Adam falling from a height using some kind of magnetic field which breaks his fall. This verifies that itâ€™s a power he can use in the game aswell. The ending also confirms that Adam is looking for someone he loves amidst all this conspiracy and chaos.Â Before the credits roll, a final power is unveiled. You can break walls with your arms in the game.
Hereâ€™s a list powers Adam will have in the game as can be figured out from this trailer
- His eyes are augmented aswell. It might have several modes of vision
- A magnetic field which can be used to land safely from above among other uses
- His augemented arm â€“ a multi-purpose tool which can be used to fight against enemies among other things.
The trailerâ€™s simply amazing and the fans of Deus Ex should be able to rejoice now, although a gameplay trailer would give us all an even better idea but the effort which was put into this trailer def pays off. It is also to note that the game will lay some serious emphasis on melee combat as Adamâ€™s arm looks devastating. We are surely thrilled, are you? Let us know below.
