File:Deus Ex Human Revolution Xbox 360 Trailer - Teaser (HD)
The first teaser trailer for the third installment in the Deus Ex series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, was released on 26 November 2007 along with the Eidos Montréal website. A day later the site of the game itself was launched with an HD version of the trailer available to download. The trailer was produced in cooperation with the Digital Dimension studio.


The trailer depicts something what appears to be an augmented fetus - the skin looks plastic, it has joints and sockets for extensions. Barcodes and a print "HUMANI CORPORIS FABRICA //EMILE//" are seen.

The narrator recites: "For centuries man has struggled to understand his true nature. What is it that makes us who we are? Soon one answer will override all others."

Afterwards, the camera flies into one of the sockets in nape of the foetus and a series of 27 images briefly flashes on the screen. The entire sequence takes 1.72 seconds. The images are:

  1. Studies of the Shoulder and Neck by Leonardo da Vinci.
  2. Studies of the Spine by Leonardo da Vinci.
  3. Views of the upper limbs in rotation by Leonardo da Vinci.
  4. Leonardo da Vinci's application of the golden ratio to the human head from De Divina Proportione.
  5. Title page of De humani corporis fabrica by Andreas Vesalius, an image showing an Anatomical Theatre (illustration by Jan Van Calcar).
