The latest trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution shows another "pillar" of the game, it's a pillar made of guns and proximity mines. The assual rifle is quite nice, but why fire ten bullets when you can fire one that explodes? It could be fun to do a revolver-only run through when the game comes out. And by "fun", I of course mean "badass." Human Revolution is out on August 23 in the US and August 26 in Europe. Check out the recent Human Revolution stealth trailer for some more sneaky combat strategies.

The latest Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer concentrates on stealth. Jensen may be outnumbered, but staying unseen is easy in the future, because you can go invisible. And see through walls. And upgrade your boots so they're completely silent. And eject two angular blades from your forearms so hard you can kill a man silently in less than a second without rumpling your leather jacket.

You'll have to upgrade your augs heavily if you want to become a master of Deus Ex: Human Revolution's black and gold shadows, but once you have, there are dozens of opportunities to toy with your enemies. Human Revolution is out on August 23 in the US and August 26 in the EU, in a month that shall henceforth be known as "Augmented August."

If someday you find yourself talking to a holographic screen full of faceless icons asking "is everything in place?" then well done, you have become a conspirator! That means you get to wear dark colours, smoke a lot and spend your days pacing back and forth in your futuristic penthouse, hissing things like "this must be surpressed" and "leave no-one alive" down secure phone lines until the whole city is yours.
Conspirators always forget the first rule of conspiracy: never bet against the angry man with the robotic arms. Jensen's on a mission to punch through every wall in the city to unravel the plot. He'd do well to start with the seedy penthouse apartments and work his way down from there. Deux Ex: Human Revolution will finally be out on August 23 in the US and August 26 in Europe.
