The weekend is near, and that’s always exciting. But when next week inevitably arrives, it won’t be entirely depressing. For you see, next Tuesday, August 23rd, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided arrives. The game is the latest in the hit cyberpunk first-person action RPG series, and the follow-up to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
With Mankind Divided’s release so close now, a launch trailer has been released online. You can read more about the game and watch the new trailer below.
Developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix aren’t waiting for E3 2016 next week to shower fans with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided goodies.
Not only have they released a new gameplay demo, which runs over 17 minutes long and is exciting enough on its own, but they’ve also released a trailer for a new game mode called “Breach,” a brief reveal trailer for a mobile game inspired by Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO titled Deus Ex GO, and a video looking at real-life human augmentation for those who are missing a limb and how the world of Deus Ex is being used for inspiration in designing new artificial limbs.
A new live-action trailer has been released for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
The trailer, titled “The Mechanical Apartheid,” steps away from the main character of the game, Adam Jensen, and the story he’s involved in that we’ve seen in previous trailers and gameplay videos. The trailer instead takes a closer look at the rise of augmentation technology, the division that arose between augmented humans and non-augmented humans when the former attacked the latter in Human Revolution, and how this affected people on a deeply personal level. It’s only a few minutes long but acts as an excellent short film that sets up the world that Deus Ex is set in, especially for those who aren’t familiar with the series but are interested in the new game.
One of the games I’m most excited for in 2016 is easily Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. I can’t say I’ve been a fan since the very start of the series, unfortunately, but the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolutiona few years back certainly recruited me into the fanbase.
What we’ve seen of the new game so far has been really exciting to see, but alas, some things we’re excited about require patience. This is especially true about video games, which often require patience and then even more patience when the title gets delayed. This is the case with Mankind Divided, and I’m afraid this delay is a lengthy one.
A new trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided titled “Adam Jensen 2.0” has been released by developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix.
The gameplay trailer focuses on some of technology that players will have at their disposal playing as the heavily augmented main character Adam Jensen, such as the Titan shield, a new gun-arm augmentation called the Tesla, the Nanoblade, and the PEPS.
