E3 Preview: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Square Enix held their E3 press conference last Tuesday, showing an eclectic mix of games. During this time, the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay trailer was revealed.
During E3 I was able to get a first look at a live demo of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided which featured a little bit of story and a whole lot of action.
The live demo of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided started off with an introductory sequence, detailing the events that surrounding Adam Jensen’s return in the game.
Mankind Divided’s story takes place two years after the events of Human Revolution. Despite the relatively short time period, the live demo made it clear that a whole lot has changed since Human Revolution.
During the live demo, I was able to get a glimpse into the rich environment that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has to offer. The impeccably detailed world of Mankind Divided is just one of the game’s exciting assets. In terms of actual gameplay, Adam Jensen has a slew of new hacking abilities and weapon upgrades. Jensen is now equipped with a nano blade that can either kill and enemy or break into shards and knock out multiple enemies.
The live demo focused on both stealth and action gameplay, showcasing the Deux Ex signature blend of player agency when it comes to tackling missions. From everything that was shown of Mankind Divided, it is safe to say that this sci-fi thriller will be one game that needs to be experienced. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is slated to be released in 2016 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
