Deus Ex’s pre-E3 stream had a couple of surprises
During Eidos Montreal’s Deus Ex pre-E3 stream this morning, the developer announced a new game mode called Breach for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Here’s how the new game mode is described:
Breach is an innovative game mode, included for free with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This new take on the game offers, for the very first time, an arcade approach on the gameplay of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, providing players with a connected puzzle shooter experience. As a Ripper, a hacker in the year 2029, your objective is to obtain and sell highly classified corporate data by infiltrating some of the world’s most secure servers, using the funds you acquire to upgrade both your skills and arsenal.
As you play, the rewards you earn, including XP, credits, and booster packs, will allow you to face the increasing difficulty of the game. Challenge yourself, your friends, and people from around the world in the ultimate Deus Ex arcade twist. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach is a live game mode, introducing new challenges and features by rolling out updates on a regular basis.
A lengthy 18 minute demo of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, titled “City-hub” was also shown. The demo shows off the city of Prague as well as a few of the options available to complete some of the game’s objectives.
And after the success of Tomb Raider GO, it looks like Adam Jensen is also hopping onto mobile devices and tablets in Deus Ex GO.
Deus Ex GO will release this summer for mobile devices and tablets. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will release on August 23 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
