Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and XCOM 2 are both super cheap this weekend

By - | Views: 21,865
If you're a bit stuck this weekend I have great news! Both Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and XCOM 2 are really cheap this weekend!

I'm amazed at how cheap they both are, considering they are both quite new.

Steam: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 70% off until 6th February!

Humble Store: XCOM 2 50% off until 7th February

I highly recommend them both. Amazing games and fantastic to have them both on Linux, so this is a good chance for you to grab them for cheap and enjoy them properly. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I have both games. Picked them up on sale a month ago or so.

The games are in my backlog. >_>

So sad that deus ex mankind divided is not playable on AMD graphic cards (not supported from the developers). :(

@Kujo: I have an AMD RX 480. With the current Mesa git 17.1 it is playable @ > 30 fps if you do reduce the graphics settings a bit. The driver has been tweaked a lot in the last weeks.

The great discount just shows how the game got abandoned. :/

If the GTX 480 will be able to provide FPS > 50 one day (which it should) I'd be buying the game. Since the game seems to be abandoned I don't feel like this will ever gonna happen.

I'm not sure about "abandoned" but what I'm sure about is that GTX 480 is aging and doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for DE:MD (even for the Windows version). On Linux it's doubtful you'd ever get consistent 50+ FPS even with the details turned all the way down. I'm not sure what the definition of minimum playable experience is for the Windows version but I'm going to make a guess and say 50 FPS won't happen there either.

I subscribed to last month's humble monthly bundle to get XCOM2, I am tweakin' and stuff to get it to work (I am like just about on recommended specs, with AMD card) and it seems awesome. I like that I got it for 10.8 dollars, (also I got all those other games, but they were kinda meh). It seems great anyhow, I hope I can play it well soon!

I read your optimize XCOM2 post Liam, and I get OK FPS during play, but what is not working is cutscenes - they play (I can hear them fine) but there is only the first frame of video showing for some reason, it's frozen.

Also, the wait between turns/actions is very long (FPS is fine, I can scroll about and so on, but loading dialogue lines during the tutorial takes ages, nothing happens for seconds for no apparent reason). I will try to fix that, perhaps just turn audio off (I dont care), and I am verifying the game also. I am happy I can play at all! Kinda of a gamble to buy the game with my specs!

Hm. In the Steam-Shop in the specs is this written: “AMD and Intel Graphics Cards are not supported at the time of release'.

And ... the game would be unplayable for me, if you with a rx480 has only a fps of 30 - i own a r9 280 ... :'(

QuoteDeus Ex: Human Revolution’s poor sales means the franchise is taking a break.
QuoteIn a statement issued to Eurogamer they said, “While we are still working on expanding the Deus Ex Universe, along with creating new content and updates for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we’re also devoting our talents towards working with Crystal Dynamics and Marvel on The Avengers project.”
