News broke out yesterday that a follow-up to Dues Ex: Human Revolution, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided , was leaked on various website along with some images. Originally this was taken with a grain of salt as there was no official confirmation of the title and most of it was based on speculation.
However this was confirmed later on during the day by GameInformer, who had already known about the game and had ran a story that covered the title and more specific information on it. You can pick up a copy of this when it hits Gamestop or if you’re a member you can read the digital version of the story. Set to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC at a later date, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will occur after the events that took place in Dues Ex: HR.
For those who haven’t played the title, at the end of Dues Ex: HR, the Illuminate basically caused anyone with augments to go berserk and they caused a lot of havoc. As you can imagine that didn’t sit well with those who didn’t have augments and the society as as whole, so Deus Ex: Mankind Divided seems to be a fitting name and gives us an idea on what to expect.
At the end of Human Revolution, the Illuminati caused every transhuman to go into a fight-or-flight response and attack anyone near them. In the next issue of Game Informer, you can find out how this event caused humanity to hate and fear those with augmentations. We spent two days in Eidos-Montreal’s studio, talking with the team and learning about how they build a realistic future. We go in depth on some of Jensen’s new augmentations that help improve the stealth and combat systems, such as the ability to remote hack electronic objects, fire off his nano blade from a distance, and surround himself with a nearly indestructible nanoshield. We also got some great examples on how the game will be as open ended as ever, allowing players to carve their own path through the world. You can only get these details in the latest issue of Game Informer.
Deus Ex: HR was easily one of my favorite games when it was released and I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been waiting on a follow-up to the breakout game. And thankfully Square Enix is finally doing it.
And later on today, Square Enix will be release a CGI trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at 9AM PDT/12 PM EDT. This should be interesting.
