This article is about the augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. For the augmentation in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, see Icarus Landing System (DXHR).

Icarus Landing returns as an augmentation in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Unlike many other augmentations from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this one appears to have not been changed at all except for the icons and slight name change.

Description Edit

Essentially safety device, the Icarus Landing System is an automatically-triggered augmentation that allows users to drop from extreme heights without incurring physical damage.

The device has an accelerative descent sensor built in; in free-fall, the unit automatically generates a fixed-focus electromagnetic lensing field. This field magnifies the Earth's ambient magnetosphere and produces a reciprocal effect, gently pushing upwards against the user. This slows the user's fall and facilitates a smooth landing.

The magnetic field can also be modulated manually to channel a portion of the energy produced by the EMF generator into a localized shockwave centered on the landing surface. This shockwave generates enough concussive force to incapacitate nearby enemies. It also generates a great deal of noise and will alert nearby personnel.

Prevent damage when falling from any height.

  • Activation cost: 2 Praxis

Upgrades Edit

Descent Velocity Modulator Edit

Descent Velocity Modulator
Upon detection of dangerous downward g-forces, the High-Fall Safeguard System automatically generates a fixed-focus electromagnetic lensing field, projected downward along the plane of the drop, to allow for a safe landing. When engaged, the Icarus Strike finishes the landing by pulsing the electromagnetic field outwards from the landing zone, which can result in a loss of consciousness for nearby individuals.

Slow the rate of descent when falling from a great height.

Includes the Icarus Strike ability that can incapacitate enemies and displaces objects on the ground when landing.
