See How It All Fell Apart In New Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Trailer

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is built around a future that might seem alien to us, with a world split between supporters and detractors of advanced medical prostheses known as augmentations, or augs. After a cataclysmic event caused some augmented people to temporarily lose control and go on violent rampages, many react with fear, hostility, and their own violence. A new live-action trailer for the game follows the events from the beginning, showing them from the perspective of a couple living in this increasingly uncertain world.

There's a lot of world-building to absorb here – particularly if you haven't played its predecessor, Deus Ex: Human Revolution – but the trailer does a good job of showing the paranoia that would likely grip people following such a disaster.
