Deus Ex Mankind Divided is an upcoming action role-playing stealth video game developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix. It is a sequel of the critically acclaimed Deus Ex Human Revolution released in 2011. Deus Ex Mankind Divided will release on 23 August, 2016 on PC, PS4 and XBOX One.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided will feature the return of protagonist Adam Jensen. It is a first person perspective game with a third-person cover system.
Mankind Divided takes place in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the ‘’Aug Incident’’- an event in which mechanically augmented humans became uncontrollable and lethally violent. Unknown to the public, the augmented humans had received implanted technology, designed to control them by a group known as the Illuminati.
The protagonist Adam Jensen, an augmented former private security officer is now working with Interpol to capture a terrorist group of augmented humans. Jensen secretly works for the Juggernaut collective, a hacker group helping him to confront the Illuminati.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided is powered by the Dawn Engine. Graphics look absolutely stunning in the demo version as well as the gameplay video. The graphics engine includes a list of flashy effects like depth of field, global illumination, volumetric lighting, air density, and motion blur. The game looks great and poses a serious challenge to Sony’s Uncharted 4 and Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
Gameplay-wise, Mankind Divided will hand players much of the same freedom, allowing you to tackle scenarios with a blend of stealth, action hacking and social interactions. The game looks more fluid now and the gun mechanics look more realistic. The map is more open and the side missions are now even more fun. Mankind Divided combines first and third-person shooter elements, along with RPG upgrade systems and more dialogue options to give the player even greater choice in the scenarios. This game looks more evolved from its predecessors with new weaponry, executions and takedowns. The narrative sequences will have a genuine impact on the world you inhibit. The trademark stealth system has been retained in this edition as well which means you can complete the entire game without killing anyone.
Both the trailers of the game received marvellous reception from the fans. People loved the demo as well. The first gameplay video has now raised the bar of expectations to new heights.
From the new features, gameplay, and graphics it seems that Deus Ex Mankind Divided will be the best game of the Deus Ex franchise. The narration style makes it look like a movie. The plot is an exciting prospect. What the actual game will be like can only be determined once it has been released.
