Deus Ex: Mankind Divided marketed with "aug awareness" posters

Deus Ex Mankind Divided propaganda

The posters also feature a triangular QR code that All Games Beta reckons unlocks posters that take the opposite position - "Stop the division", "We are stronger together", etc. I couldn't get it to work, but here's my favourite:
