And that's looting in the traditional illegal sense, where a bunch of no-good street toughs use various objects like shovels and bats to smash through store windows to steal stuff that they can sell back at the nearest cashies for 4.7% of its value.

The first one, on Xbox 360. Which will be available via backwards compatibility alongside Mirror's Edge. Also the first one.

From pilot mobility through to Titan meter accumulation, they've detailed some of the reasoning behind choices and changes coming to the game.
Five years in the making and we've finally got that sequel to the excellent Deus Ex: Human Revolution! With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided pretty much picking things up right where that game ended. Once again you take control of Augmented super cop Adam Jensen as the world around him seems to be falling apart with hatred, terrorism, and an over abundance of human-sized, security-free, ventilation systems.
