Deus Ex Mankind Divided E3 Preview Roundup!
E3 2015 is over and so it is time to give a roundup of all the sci-fi games that were shown. Or at least the good ones. Those games that got me excited were the fifth Deus Ex game (if you include The Fall in the count), but also Mass Effect: Andromeda, Star Wars Battlefront and The Division. Today I have written a roundup preview for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Right from the start when the first details were announced early in the spring it felt that it was a natural successor to Deus Ex Human Revolution. That game was one of the reasons I started this blog back in 2011 because I thought few review did it justice and captured its core essence. That said, Human Revolution wasn’t without its flaws. For a world that was so carefully crafted to resemble a true Future Noir tech jungle it was surprisingly sparsely populated with Non Playable Characters (NPCs). That made the game feel more sterile than it needed to. Mankind Divided already seems to improve on Human Revolution if the trailers are anything to go by. Deus Ex Mankind Divided is being developed by Eidos Montreal for PC, Xbox One and PS4 and is scheduled for an early 2016 release.
So what is Mankind Divided all about? Well… Mankind Divided is set in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution. Adam Jensen will return as the protagonist. The human race is now more against augments than ever before and Adam Jensen is trying to change their opinions. Wasn’t hard not was it?
Below you can view all the trailers and previews that were released during E3, so you won’t have to miss one second of footage. Enjoy!
First up is the full preview trailer for the PS4
Second is a walk-through from Gamespot
Finally, there is a brand new 25 minute gameplay video
I think the last vid definitely showed that Eidos took the criticism of Human Revolution to heart. The scene at the train station were Jensen is asked his papers is just fantastic. The world looks engrossing and meaningful. It also reminds me a little of Half-Life 2). In the preview trailer there were also destructive obstacles. I am not sure how much can be damaged, perhaps just some preset areas but even that is an improvement. Well, that was it for this preview. I hope you enjoyed the videos.
