The Deus Ex universe explores a gritty, cyberpunk future where a complex web of competing forces push the boundaries of what's considered “human.” Tech corporations, government interests, and secret societies endlessly backstab one another to create biotech augmentations ranging from the mildly helpful to the supremely unethical -- and it’s up to the player to unravel the mystery that surrounds them.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the latest entry in the franchise, brings a host of new gameplay mechanics and feature improvements to learn. This overview guide outlines everything you need to know to get started with the latest Deus Ex adventure.
What's New in Mankind Divided
While fans of 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be familiar with most of the basics, Mankind Divided adds a slew of new features to the Deus Ex fold. From a new set of augmentations and weapons to more dynamic stealth and action gameplay, here’s what’s new in the latest game.
Human Revolution protagonist Adam Jensen returns for Mankind Divided. An ex-SWAT operative who nearly died in a mercenary attack, Adam was rebuilt by Sarif Industries using groundbreaking augmentations, making him into one of the world’s most advanced cyborgs. In Mankind Divided, Jensen has joined Task Force 29, a counter-terrorism organization that deals with augmented terrorists that have sprung up in response to the infamous Aug Incident.
