If the brief demo of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided during Square Enix's E3 press conference this past week wasn't enough to satiate your desire to feel, see and hear more about the cyberpunk thriller from Eidos Montreal, fear not for there is an entire half hour of gameplay footage available for you to see below.
Posted on the official Deus Ex YouTube channel, the 25 minute video gives gamers a ton of info about the upcoming multi-choice, action-stealth RPG. Check it out below.
The video starts off with Jensen getting off a train to Praha. He meets up with a contact in the region as they discuss Jensen's uneasy trust with Interpol, his employer.
The game takes place two years after the catastrophic events from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Jensen is now attempting to take down the Illuminati, the power-players who worked behind the scenes to control augs and the world.
After a brief cinematic, we see Jensen entering into a cargo-slum area that seems to really bring the cyberpunk visuals to life.
The video may be lengthy but all of it focuses on the new features and gameplay mechanics Eidos Montreal is adding to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. They cover Jensen's new Tesla EMP device that can target up to four people and disable them simultaneously.
The EMP device isn't the only way to remotely disable electronic devices and people. There are new EMP bullets. The bullets can be used in various weapons so players who enjoy using certain guns but want to do so in a non-lethal way can actually accomplish that in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
There are also normal and explosive bullets to name but a few. The option is made available for those who want to change up how they attack a situation and approach a mission.
Eidos also introduces the Icarus Dash, a quick transport ability that allows Jensen to instantly dash to a new area, and it can be used either as a mobility skill or as an offensive skill to knock enemies off their feet.
The new Nano Blade skill can also be employed at a distance, giving gamers the ability to pin enemies to walls or surfaces by shooting it off. Nano Blades can also be charged up for explosive results, working as a small area explosive depending on how it's used.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided also has an all new remote hacking feature that can be used to open doors or unlock areas at a distance. The remote hacking doesn't replace the tried and true hacking mini-game, in fact Eidos makes it known that the hacking mini-game from Deus Ex: Human Revolution is making a return and that hacking 2.0 will have more options, more variety and more dangers for players to overcome and master.
We also get to see the Titan Shield in action, which enables Jensen to absorb tons of damage. This is for players who enjoy going head-on into firefights.
Speaking of firefights, the new cover system in Deus Ex makes it where staying behind a single piece of cover for too long is no longer viable. The cover deconstructs and can be physically blown to pieces, forcing players to stay on the move during firefights, which is a nice touch.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due to release on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC in early 2016 next year.
