Deus Ex is a cyberpunk role-playing game that is widely considered one of the best games ever made, released on the heels of The Matrix in 2000. In 2003 it was followed by a somewhat underwhelming sequel, but there’s a new game coming out next month which is shaping up nicely. Take a look at these clever advertisements, which don’t actually show the game at all, but immerse you in the dystopian future they’re trying to create.
Not everything that glitters is gold, though, and cybernetic implants are causing major problems…
It looks as though this new video game is doing a better job of tackling the popular predictions of futurists than the sci-fi films being made these days. Of course the hero of the game is a cyborg himself, and you’ll be able to customize him to your heart’s content with all kinds of crazy augmentations.
