Remember to “put purity” first in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

My current set of limbs are…rather rubbish. These weak, pathetic noodle-arms couldn’t even beat SpongeBob Squarepants in an arm-wrestling contest, something my grandmother is more than happy to let me know when she mocks me every weekend. But hey, knowing the problem is 50% of the fight, and getting a surgeon to hack these terrible appendages off and replace them with Samsung Galaxy S7-level bionics that won;t kill me the second I get shoved into a pool, is the other 50% of the solution.

If I had robotic limbs, I’d be unstoppable. I’d open all the jars, cause a fuss at the Olympics and probably sell illegally obtained organs to zoos for polar bear meat-snacks. Naturally, some sort of oversight commitee is going to be set up the second I’m more metal than whatever’s left of Jackie Chan, something that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided developer Eidos Interactive and publisher Square Enix has apparently foreseen.

In a shocking display of foresight that imagines that a world where even the idea of a fictional superhero being a different colour is enough to bring in an uproar from people whose mothers may also be their sisters, Deus Ex: mankind Divided is tapping into that paranoia with a “purity first” campaign. Contained in an ARG website which is apparently run by people who found the Iron Man movies insulting to their anti-augmentation beliefs, the propaganda site wants to convince you that keeping your weak fleshy extremities is the way to go.

Sort of like the FOX News of fake video game viral sites then.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is out August 23 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rumours of a special edition that includes torches and pitchforks for people who really want to complain about their techno-savvy neighbors, are sadly untrue at this point. Filthy augs, what with their fancy Winter Soldier cosplay that makes my arm wrapped up in tinfoil look lame in comparison…

    I’m a little disappointed that there’s no Purity jar in the header. 😛

          Thought you can’t ignore that HR did take things from it and somehow made them less lame. That alone makes HR a great game.
