It’s 2027. Revolutionary advancements in science allow the augmentation of human beings with mechanical neuro-prostheses and limb replacements that allow for enhanced physical and mental abilities. Who wouldn’t want to be super-human?
As with most human vices there is a downside; the body rejects these enhancements making Neuropozine, a controversial and expensive drug that prevents that corporal upheaval, a lifetime requirement.
Sarif Industries, headquartered in revitalized Detroit is a leader in human augmentation research and development. On the eve of presenting groundbreaking new research, the research laboratory is savagely attacked by augmented soldiers leaving many of its key research personnel dead. The slick, gravelly-voiced Adam Jensen, ex-SWAT leader and newly-recruited head of Sarif’s security is left critically wounded.
