Square Enix Releases Lengthy Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Walkthrough; Announces New Mode & New Spinoff Game


If you’ve ever wondered how Adam Jensen showers as a result of all of the robotic augmentations that have been added to his body, then you’re in luck. Square Enix has just released a brand new, eighteen minute-long gameplay walkthrough for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and it offers the answers you’ve been looking for. Not that they’re very exciting, though, as it seems like the mechanical pieces are waterproof and don’t require any sort of special shower maintenance.

Through this fully narrated and rather lengthy walkthrough video, you’ll get a good glimpse of Adam Jensen’s apartment — including his bedroom, bathroom and living room — as well as the somewhat worn out apartment building that he resides in. However, once the augmented badass leaves his residence, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided‘s city-hub of Prague becomes the focus, before things shift to an infiltration mission. In the midst of all of this, newspapers, hacking mechanics, messaging systems, allies and subways are all shown, and ways in which you can access secondary missions are also discussed.

There’s a lot to like about this new look, as it shows off a game that truly resembles a quality successor to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The visuals have been improved, details are more evident, and Adam Jensen seems to have a lot at his disposal in terms of his stealth infiltration techniques, hacking abilities, unique augmentations and options for both lethal and non-lethal takedowns.

This narrated walkthrough isn’t the only news to come out of the Mankind Divided camp, though, as details regarding an additional game mode have also surfaced, alongside the reveal of a Deus Ex: Go spinoff game.

Let’s start with the new game mode, which is aptly named Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach.

It, as it’s been described and shown off through its reveal trailer, is an arcade-inspired take on the gameplay of Mankind Divided, which will present players with a “connected puzzle shooter experience.”

As a Ripper, your objective is to obtain and sell highly classified corporate data by infiltrating some of the world’s most secure servers, using the funds you acquire to upgrade both your skills and arsenal. As you play, the rewards you earn, including XP, credits, and booster packs, will allow you to face the increasing difficulty of the game. Challenge yourself, your friends, and people from around the world in the ultimate Deus Ex arcade twist. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach is a live game mode, introducing new challenges and features by rolling out updates on a regular basis.

“We are introducing a brand new game mode to Deus Ex. In addition to being a new visual approach for the players, the Breach mode broadens the lore of the Deus Ex universe,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Breach also reinforces Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s gameplay experience with a totally different setting.”

Deus Ex GO is a turn-based infiltration puzzle game set in a stylized interpretation of the Deus Ex Universe. As double agent Adam Jensen, you’ll use hacking, combat, and augmentations to solve the most challenging puzzles of the entire GO series. Work alongside your allies in TF29 and the Juggernaut Collective as you infiltrate locations to unravel the conspiracy behind a terrorist plot.”

Deus Ex: Go, on the other hand, will be its own separate game in the vein of Hitman: Go and Lara Croft: Go. As such, fans can expect a more straightforward, turn-based puzzler.

“With Deus Ex, we are taking the GO franchise to another level. We are building on the learnings of Hitman and Lara Croft to go a step further with Deus Ex in terms of visual, game design and social features” said Patrick Naud, Head of Studio at Square Enix Montreal.

You can look forward to playing through Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, as well as its newly revealed secondary campaign, starting on August 23rd – which is also when the great-looking sequel to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be released onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
