The game is set up after the golden era of augmentation to the Mechanical Apartheid:
In 2027, mechanically-augmented people all over the world suffered from extreme psychotic delusions, lost control of themselves, and started attacking people. Millions died. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and maimed. In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws. The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial “Human Restoration Act”, aimed at isolating “Augs” and keeping them away from “Naturals”.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, the game is an action RPG with a “choice and consequence” system at play at every turn. The story and consequences to your actions really immerse you into their world. You play as Adam Jensen, an undercover agent, that has to decide who to trust along his journey. The game offers plenty of weapons and augmentations to make the action fun.
The game is releasing August 23rd across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
