The latest game in the Deus Ex series has been announced, it's called Mankind Divided, and it's coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4. Originally planned to be announced as part of a cryptic teaser campaign run by Square Enix across social media, news of the game broke once screenshots were leaked, which then led to a Game Informer announcement as part of a detailed cover story in their next issue. No release date has been provided.
Taking place after the events of Human Revolution, in 2029, the story is set to continue following Alex Jensen in a story that one assumes will contain some division. And mankind. Okay, so details are pretty scarce but Game Informer have teased the following.
Set in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution, Adam Jensen returns and joins forces with an Interpol-funded task force aiming to hunt down and capture augmented terrorists in a world that now hates and fears transhumans. Jensen has a new suite of augmentations that allow him to cleverly navigate stealth, combat, and social interactions, but how Jensen chooses to solve every problem is entirely up to you.
Based on the screenshots and artwork revealed so far, the game is looking pretty tasty. Mmm, augmented human tech powers in a neon lit future-scape.
