Square Enix has officially announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
The game will take place in 2029, that’s two years after the events of Human Revolution, and the Aug Incident that took place in Panchaea. Following the death of millions, a colossal rift has emerged between people with augmentations and those without, and in keeping with the political theme, there are other parties who plan to use the turmoil to further their own agenda.
“For 15 years, Deus Ex has been a point of conversation across the games industry and beyond,” says David Anfossi, Head of Studio, Eidos-Montréal, “whether the topic is the franchise’s unique gameplay or topical narrative focused on advanced biotechnology and human augmentation. 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.”
According to the press announcement, as social and political chaos reaches breaking point, the “super-augmented anti-terrorist agent” Adam Jensen returns, this time powered by new state-of-the-art augmentations.
We’re also told Mankind Divided will feature more player choice than ever before.
