Square Enix recently announced a teaser for a brand new game. To begin with, it is worth noting that this video was an online broadcast, at which it was stretched for three whole days, which is extremely unusual news. The demo was called “Project CKP” (Project CantKillProgress) and during this demo there was an opportunity to vote for various options, but still it did not add any clarity.
After the second day has passed, the veil of secrecy is suddenly lifted and everyone suddenly finds out that Square Enix studio is going to release the game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! Moreover, this will be a direct continuation of the game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which, if anyone remembers, was released back in 2011 and it is not in vain that rumors constantly appeared about this game.
So, the main character in the game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided still remains Adam Jensen, but slightly older by two whole years, but this is understandable, because in the universe of this game it is already 2029. Let’s go further: Mr. Adam changed his place of work and is now “plowing” for Interpol, more precisely, he works in a division called “Task Force 29”. This group is exclusively engaged in the fight against cyber-terrorists (the video from the game Cyberpunk 2077 immediately came to mind).
In general, the decision you made at the end of the Deus Ex: Human Revolution game will not be reflected in the new game and will not influence the plot in any way, which is very sad and insulting. The writers generally have nothing to say about this, and apparently they are not even going to answer which end corresponds to the new part, but still, they promise all players that the games will be linked.
The gameplay, as in the previous part, remains the same non-linear, and as an example, the developers showed one of the tasks that you have to complete in the game. The assignment is called “Utulek Station”. On assignment, Jensen will have to track down one of the leaders of the cyber terrorists, but the problem is that the one who was the “rat” of the cyber terrorists was caught by the police and, accordingly, imprisoned. Here you are given three options for further passage: you can go to the wife of this informer, maybe she knows something; try to get to your caught informant, which soon leads to a skirmish with the cops; well, try to get the leader already on your own, and then solve all the issues with him with the help of force or diplomacy.
All game locations are simulated, so each player will have great opportunities in terms of tactics (as in Deus Ex: Human Revolution), but when you get to your first Boss, you will notice the difference between the tactical components of the two parts.
In addition, the developers promised that players will now be able to deal with the Boss both quietly and with a big mess. The number of various improvements for Adam is doubled! Yes, this is obvious, because two whole years have passed, and progress has never stood still. There will also be new abilities like “CASIE” – an analyzer of the mental state of enemies, which will give you the opportunity to choose more correct options in dialogues. There will also be the “Tesla” skill, which will allow you to mark enemies, which makes it possible to deal with opponents in stealth mode. Another interesting skill is called “PEPS Gun” – this is a unique weapon with which you can stun your opponents. The most interesting thing is that now all skills will take energy from Adam, and in order to replenish energy reserves you will either have to use special biocells, or just stand there and wait for full recovery. Well, lastly, we will tell you that the game is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
