Deus Ex Mankind Divided trailer and screenshots revealed
The Deus Ex franchise is certainly one of my favorite gaming franchises ever since the original was released in 2000. The game got a sequel in 2003, Invisible Wars that was less well received with complaints it was somewhat dumbed-down. After 8 years new life was blown into the franchise with Human Revolution to which Mankind Divided, announced today, is considered a direct sequel to.
The original Deus Ex was a brilliant blend of multi-genre gameplay with influences from Neuromancer and the tech-noir, cyberpunk sci-fi sub-genre. That Deus Ex even got finished was nothing but a miracle. Game designer Warren Spector had team of developers that had just moved away front John Romero’s Daikatana while no one had a good idea of what the game should be like. Deus Ex Human Revolution improved the franchise considerably and still counts as one if the best shooter RPG’s you can play.
Now Eidos Montreal is developing Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Set just 3 years after events of Human Revolution the player will again follow the pursuits of Jensen. In spirit of the Human Revolution the game has been categorized as a first-person shooter, stealth and RPG-elements game. The stealth part is what defines the new series, it reminds more of Splinter Cell when that series was still new.
Today publisher Square Enix has released the first screenshots and trailer for a game that sadly has so far no release date. Game Informer is supposed to have the exclusive scoop on the game for their May issue, but little regard is given to new iteration of such a anticipated franchise. Square Enix meanwhile has been milking the occasion by revealing to fans small snippets of game on Twitch for the next 3 days.
Below you can see a teaser trailer that show why the game was made and what Jensen motives are…
And further below you can see a second announcement trailer for the PS4 which shows more of the background world in which Jensen has to fight for the protection of the augmented.
Last but not least I have one concept art picture fore those who like to drool on those (me included). This was Deus Ex Mankind Divided trailer and screenshots revealed. I hope you enjoyed the short preview
