Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Unlock Times, DLC Season Pass Details

Gosh oh golly, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is out in less than 24 hours! Square Enix have confirmed Steam unlock times and I'm mighty excited. The cyberpunk FPS-RPG is pretty great, our Graham thinks - the lucky dog! Luckily for me and my overexcitement, publishers Square Enix have also poured a cool glass of cyberwater over my cyberhead to make me calm down…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Launch Trailer Uncloaks

"You can kill dreams," Adam Jensen growls, "you can kill innocence, you can kill freedom, but you can't kill progress." A serious lad, that one. While Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] doesn't launch until Tuesday, the cyberpunk FPS-RPG's launch trailer is already here. Very gruff. Very growly. Pretty flipping cool and all. Have a gander:

Steam Game Charts: So Much Sky, Man

Hullo! One day later than usual because I spent yesterday on a beach next to an industrial estate, but as always, here's what sold best on Steam last week. It is ever so faintly possible that you might have a very slight inkling as to what is number one. I could not possibly comment myself.

Deus Specs: Mankind Divided Sys Reqs & Pre-loads

You're damn right I'm primarily writing this post in order to make that title gag. But hell, I was genuinely surprised to hear that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] is only two weeks away. Time was a Deus Ex sequel was a seismic event, but now it's just one more tempting glint amid a vast sea of intriguing releases. It's been a bloody busy…

Deus Ex’s Breach Mode Enlists NeoTokyo Composer

The Official RPS Campaign To Get Billy Idol In Deus Ex gathers momentum. No, Eidos Montreal haven't yet given a rebel yell confirming ole spiketop's presence on the soundtrack, but it's surely a matter of time now I know we're musically on the same page. You see, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] has drafted the chap behind the flipping lovely soundtrack for Source mod…

Deus Ex Mankind Divided: Gameplay Footage, New Project Reveals From 4.30pm

I have never played more than five minutes of a Deus Ex [official site] game, but I do find the transhumanism and the artwork fascinating. I also had a dream pretty recently about Adam Jensen where it turned out that instead of being a modified human he was actually a secret bee with all these insecty body mods. His sunglasses were actually his compound eyes…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided And This Mess We’re In

A new live-action trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] tells a little story of how the futureworld goes from the "Huzzah hooray, cyborgs are the future!" optimism in Human Revolution to "Cyborgs want to eat my baby, please lock them away" panic. I think I just enjoyed a live-action trailer...? Not only because of swish cybertech and dark megacities either. What times we…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Trailer Explains It All

I have only three questions about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site]. 1) Can I get a dollhouse-scale recreation of that tree sculpture? 2) Does Adam Jensen take showers or baths? 3) Have Eidos Montreal spoken to Billy Idol yet? A new trailer answers that second question for me, but if you have any more you might find them answered in the six-minute overview of…

RPS Endorse Billy Idol For Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

"Alice! Cara! Alice! What have you been listening to at your office Christmas party?" you beg. "Tell us, please!" Well, obviously the Rogue Warrior credits theme a whole lot, plus SomaFM's Christmas stream and... when she was napping, a song from Billy Idol's reviled 1993 concept album Cyberpunk. God help me, it's stuck in my head and I must write this to get his leering…

Deus Ex – Mankind Divided Delayed Until August

Everything looked rosy when I traveled to Montreal to take a look at Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] earlier this year. The areas I played improved on Human Revolution in every way that matters and Adam Jensen controlled better than ever. All was well and I was looking forward to playing the game in February, right around my birthday. Moments ago, word arrived of…

Deus Ex Mankind Divided’s Ending Is Not A Button Press

Disappointing endings are a staple of Deus Ex games, aren't they? That's fine, though, because almost everything leading up to those final two minutes when you choose which button to press is pretty great. Unsurprisingly, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] will be continuing the series's sequel tradition of openings which kinda ignore which button you picked, but the ending this time will be more…

Become A Weapon: Deus Ex – Mankind Divided

I've played Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] and I liked what I saw. A brief visit to just two areas suggested a more confident and open approach to first-person stealth-action. My preview focused on the level design because that's where most of the improvements seemed to be but Eidos Montreal are also determined to improve player character Adam Jensen. That's already evident in the…

Deus Ex Is 15, So Here’s Cartoon Denton & Jensen

The Deus Ex series, with its highest of highs and most middling of lows, is 15 years old. Old men, running the world. But not complicated pre-order schemes. They can't run those, it appears. The anniversary is being used to promote upcoming fourth game Mankind Divided, due out in February (thus I will be a man divided between it and XCOM 2), and so we…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Pre-Order Silliness Scrapped

"Never pre-order," we say, which is shorthand for "Pre-ordering is a gamble, so do be careful when placing bets and don't be swayed by the free shrimp buffet that is bonus DLC." Pre-order bonuses are usually harmless enough, but Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] publishers Square Enix had the awful idea of saying they'd release the game early - only if enough people pre-ordered.…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Release Date Held To Ransom

One Deus Ex: Human Revolution mission centred around an old friend from the Deus Ex universe, Tracer Tong, was locked off in pre-order DLC (and later sold seperately). It was a bit of a gross move. Apparently not learning from their mistakes - a pretty Deus Ex-y theme, to be fair - publishers Square Enix have announced all the pre-order guff for Deus Ex: Mankind…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Has New Game Plus Mode

Turn your mind back to Gamescom earlier in the month - it was via a Twitch stream that Eidos Montreal announced a few more details on Deus Ex: Mankind DividedĀ [official site]. The game, they said, would get a New Game Plus Mode, which refers to a feature that was previously seen in the Director's Cut version of Human Revolution back in 2013. So here we…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Is The Star Wars Original Trilogy Of Game Ceilings

Deus Ex: Human Revolution had the best ceilings of any game ever made. I'm not kidding. I've had screenshots of that game's ceilings as desktop wallpapers and I know others who have done the same. Each one was a sculptural work designed to communicate the cyber renaissance setting. I spoke to gameplay director Patrick Fortier about this at Gamescom and unfortunately it sounds as if…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Has A Real Nice Tree Sculpture

Sending me four new Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] screenshots for Gamescom (I say 'screenshots' - one looks like an actual screenshot and even that might be staged), Square Enix are probably hoping I'll gush over the graphics tech or pore over them for plot hints. Nope. I am, however, really into a sculpture which appears in one screenshot of the Prague city hub.…

Flying Swords And Boss Chat-Off: 25 Mins Of Deus Ex 4

I know it's not really called Deus Ex 4 in any shape or form, but 'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' [official site] is long and headlines boxes are short. You get the point though: here's the best part of half an hour of Adam Jensen asking for it in Square's upcoming stealth-or-death sequel. On show: new augmentations, purportedly improved combat, 'social boss fight system', a gun…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Coming In Early 2016

Our first in-game glimpses at Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] come from the FPS-RPG's E3 trailer, including an amazing moment when Adam EMPs a guy with mechanical legs and they go all wobbly. Also Adam now has the power to turn into a faceted black statue from a vaporwave album cover. Oh, and I suppose it reveals a release window: early 2016. It's a…
