Deus Ex Mankind Divided
Deux Ex Human Revolution came in 2011 and Eidos Montreal along with Square Enix as publishers are developing the sequel to the beloved cyberpunk series with Mankind Divided. The story takes place two years after Human Revolution.
The game is developed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a single player mode only and the perspective is first-person with the cover system set in a third-person perspective like was the case with the previous installment.
The story continues Human Revolution (spoiler warning) where the main characted, Adam Jensen, had to fight agains the Panchea supercomputer. He had several ways of ending the problems in that game but now there are millions of augmented persons that attack humans. The Illuminati secret society wanted exactly this hatred against the augmented and the game begins in Prague in 2029 where Adam Jensen along with an international coalition tries to stop terrorist attacks.
Many were extremely dissapointed with the way in which Human Revolution ended because you only received four choices and everything you did until then was insignificant. The developers blaimed this to the lack of production time according to Mary DeMarle, the narrative lead of Eidos Montreal, but she promises that Mankind Divided won’t make the same mistake.
The ending for this game will be generated through the choices you made along the game but due to the previous game, where the four choices were highly different, the developers found themselves having to change the significance of that ending. They said that once the signal was sent by Jensen he though it would be changing the world, but many other signals were broadcasted by the Illuminati and each received their own version so no one knows what to believe.
The system requirements for Deus Ex Mankind Divided are Core i3-2115C 2.0GHz or APU A6-3500 Triple-Core CPU, GeForce GTX 650 or Radeon R7 250 GPU and 4GB RAM. The game is planned to be released on the 23rd of August 2016 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
