A new "Purity First " trailer from Deus Ex: Human Revolution combines live action footage and cinematic sequences to explore the human augmentation technology that underlies much of the upcoming action/RPG prequel. The clip shows how technology can help enhance human skills and abilities, but can also be used to observe (was that Wheatley?) and control individuals as well, highlighting the contrasting utopian and dystopian elements in this vision of the future. The clip concludes with a pointer to the Sarif Industries Website with some more viral promotion, and a recursive link back to the same trailer. The embedded version follows.
Re: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Purity First Trailer
well to be fair, the leak is only 1/3 of the game.. so i am half-thinking it was intentional - for a PR leak you'd think it would be an even mix of levels and things from the game, not just the first third.
I am actually surprised they didn't go all public with it, it would be a tremendous PR boost. I only played the first missions and some stuff in the first hub because, well i didn't want to spoiler it for my pre-order gaming experience, what i have seen from it though... well it was not just JAW dropping amazing, it was probably the best deus ex ever made. And thats in its leaked beta stage.
And just for info, the graphics and general level of detail is truly stunning. Walking into an office really looks like a real office, you can even read the post-it notes, sometimes with funny details, sometimes with their pc password. Every PC is unique, has unique emails, sometimes even unique applications (for hacking) and hacking is truly complex now
I can't wait for it, even as i mentioned pre-ordered it after the leak. Actually while playing the leak, it just drew me in like only Deus EX 1 did back then.
