Here’s the news you have been desperate to hear, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [Official Site] is officially heading to SteamOS & Linux and it’s being ported by Feral Interactive.

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.

Too much positive news lately. Linux gaming is dead, according to naysayers

Damn....Feral keep cracking. Loving those guys.

Glad more people are learning this .

Never buy a game for Linux until the Linux version exists, no matter how tempting the offer is or how much you want to support it.

I'm very confident Feral wouldn't do it Batman style. Rather delay a game or even give up on it then release it broken.

Well 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!

This is awesome! So glad it's really happening.

Square Enix have been picking up the pace with their SteamOS support, but until now it'd been things I already owned. I'm looking forward to this one actually counting as a Linux sale for me.
