Great science fiction makes you think about the world around you, how close we are to the future and how the choices we make may have a lasting impact. District 9 may have been a movie about aliens on earth, but where it really shines is the deeper story about how we treat each other and the effects of racism and apartheid. The new Deus Ex: Human Evolution trailer hits all the right notes for a science fiction story in the information age.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
The trailer brings to light some excellent plot hooks and possible hard choices to make in the next game in the Deus Ex series. No surprise there, since the original game is still heralded as one of the best examples of how to design a level that allows the player to choose their own solutions. Here’s hoping that Human Revolution leaves these ethical choices to the player. For now, check out the alternate reality website for the game at Sarif Industries.
