Eidos Montréal's gold-tinted view of the future in Deus Ex: Human Revolution isn't the most optimistic, and certainly not the most tolerant of man's meekness. It's 2027, and you're getting a cybernetic arm, perma-shades and Bale-Batman vocal chords.
You play Adam Jensen, a security specialist, handpicked to oversee the defense of one of America's most experimental biotechnology firms. But when a black ops team uses a plan you designed to break in and kill the scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes. At a time when scientific advancements are routinely turning athletes, soldiers and spies into super-enhanced beings, someone is working very hard to ensure mankind's evolution follows a particular path, and you need to discover why the decisions you take and the choices you make, will be the only things that can change it.
