They have confirmed the game will release this year, but they aren’t being any clearer than that right now. Could it be my early Christmas present? Oh please say it is–although even sooner than that would be great!

From the Press Release:

Quote“Over the past 16 years, the Deus Ex games have been leaders in game design, expertly blending innovative storytelling and gameplay within a compelling game world,” said David Stephen, Managing Director at Feral Interactive. “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes it to the next level, giving players an unprecedented degree of freedom in a spectacular cyberpunk setting, where their actions shape both narrative and gameplay.”


They will announce the required PC specifications closer to the launch date.

Incredible news! I played through the previous game years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. So I am already a fan of the series.

It’s worth noting that reviews for the game overall on Steam are "Mixed", mainly due to microtransactions and an apparent abrupt ending. As usual though, I reserve all my thoughts on it until I actually play it.

It’s not cheap at £39.99, so at release you may need to dig a little deep into those pockets of yours. It also has a £24.99 season pass, so hopefully given that price it means extra actual story content will come too.

It’s also one of a select few games that you can buy bundled with a Steam Controller, so if you don’t own one it’s a chance to get some money off buying them together.

About the game

The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have now been deemed outcasts, living a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society.

Now an experienced covert operative, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

I guess Feral still only supports nvidia... but I dont blame them:
AMD stills does not support my R9 390 with the GPU-PRO drivers.
Ubuntu only supports either my unsupported GPU-PRO drivers or the open drivers.
Steam does not support open drivers.


I dont know why but for some reason I kinda fancy a PS4 now.

Bah - screw user "reviews". This game fetched a rock solid metascore of 85% with the (real) reviewers saying this gamer corrects the wrongs of the first game (especially the abysmal boss fights). If some users get their pants in a knot over a totally optional purchasable unlock that only works for one playthrough, well boohoo. This game - the actual content we get for the price we pay - is rock solid, end of discussion.

This is this years big GOTY-contender against Rocket League. Simple as that.

Great news! Glad I didn't jump the gun to buy it yet. I'm a bit worried about performance though.

You mean the wrongs of the second game, don't you? :)

I agree that the only reason for negative reviews that seems to matter is the abrupt ending - seems to be a hint of essential DLC coming soon that will conclude open story lines.

Quoting: TemplateRWell thats great. But I wouldn´t be better to port the predecessor "Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut" first and then the successor? I mean it is better to understand the story, when you play the first part directly instead of watching a reacap intro.

Hey, we cannot complain when we don't get the newest (Tomb Raider) and complain when we do get the newest! :D

I never played a "Deus Ex"-Game. Neither the "Deus Ex"-Series from Eidos Interaktiv nor the Square Enix-Series.

Well our GOTY vote when it returns in January 2017 certainly will be interesting...

Quoting: EikeI'm very confident Feral wouldn't do it Batman style.
Who knows how they dress on casual fridays. Might be an office full of caped crusaders for all we know.

Game is somehow flawed masterpiece - due of publisher tactics - but it's certainly a AAA release and certainly something I am keen to check out.
