The cinematic trailer for the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided debuted this morning with the game expected on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. If the energy and pacing of the trailer is an indication of the evolution the next Deus Ex game will take, hopefully speed will be a big part of it.
Set two years after Human Revolution, Mankind Divided puts players back in the role of the augmented Adam Jensen. Front and center is some classic cyberpunk themes, an idea well known to Deus Ex fans, with tensions between “pure” humans and cybernetically augmented humans boiling over, ala Blade Runner. Hopefully Eidos and Square Enix will be able to continue building, while keeping the core depth of the game consistent. Human Revolution, while streamlined compared to its predecessors, managed to achieve a solid balance of RPG character progression with modern gameplay mechanics.
No release date has been announced.
