The First Trailer For Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Jason Schreier, for Kotaku:

There’s no release date or even year announced yet for the much-anticipated fourth Deus Ex game, which will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In other words, don’t expect this game until 2016. But still, it’s exciting—Human Revolution was excellent, and it sounds like the developers have been working on this next one for a very long time.

I absolutely loved the first Deus Ex, and I thought that Human Revolution made for a stellar reboot. It wasn’t perfect, but I loved being immersed in that world.

While we’re here, since this is my soapbox, I’ll go ahead and say that my biggest criticism of the first game wasn’t the boss battles, but the upgrade system. The limited resources in the first Deus Ex forced players to choose which traits to upgrade. It was a game balance mechanic that ensured that your narrative would be different across several playthroughs. The reboot abandoned that completely, and made all augments available long before the end of the story. Anyway, I have no reason to believe Square Enix will come around to my way of thinking, but I’ll be buying this game either way.
