In a world where prosthetic limbs can be 3D printed, Deus Ex's vision of the future, with people willingly lopping off body parts to attach advanced mechanical replacements, seems actually feasible. A series of videos and propaganda posters have been released to market the upcoming RPG, and the ARG-style collection brings the world of Deus Ex even closer to reality.
Before getting lost down the rabbit hole, why not have a look at out list of best RPGs.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided tells the story of what the developers call a 'mechanical apartheid', where a conflict has risen between augmented people and 'pure' humans. It's no wonder humans have had enough of the augs, really. I mean, look at this clumsy git:

There's more teasing for the upcoming story over on augaware.org, where you'll find a collection of news articles, propaganda and other bits and bobs. The propaganda posters alone make it worth a visit. Here's a sample:
Augmented? No problem - go and live in a shipping container in a field. You can't murder any domestic cats there.
It's probably best you're kept away from children, too, actually.
Head over to augaware.org before it's cool.No doubt some clever clogs will find some hidden stuff in there by typing "I never asked for this" in binary, or something.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided releases on August 23.
