Square Enix has officially revealed the next Deux Ex game. Subtitled Mankind Divided, the game will take place two years after Human Revolution. The world looks like its gotten even worse somehow. Check out the announcement trailer.
Mankind Divided again features Adam Jensen, the gravel-voiced hero of Human Revolution. This sequel pits augmented humans or “augs” against regular humans. There’s political turmoil and heavy themes about civil rights and transhumanism, too. Adam looks to be caught right in the middle of a society tearing itself apart. At 2:09, there’s also a woman who looks exactly like Bryce Dallas Howard. Coincidence, or is another Hollywood star breaking into video games?
Head of Eidos Montreal David Anfossi had this to say about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
What began with Deus Ex: Human Revolution goes to a whole new level in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, diving even deeper into this discussion and, in turn, offering fans an all-encompassing experience, one which will challenge their skills as players and emphasize decision-making based on real world topics.
Leaked screenshots yesterday revealed that Mankind Divided will likely have similar gameplay to its predecessor, with first-person shooting, third-person cover, and a host of augmentations to aid either combat or stealth approaches.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will release for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.[Source: IGN]
