In a new Deus Ex: Mankind Divided trailer, we get a look at how Adam Jensen has “evolved” since Human Revolution.
Square Enix and Eidos Montréal have released a new trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which showcases the evolution of protagonist Adam Jensen, dubbed ‘Adam Jensen 2.0.’ The new and improved Jensen is described as a covert operative “forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind.”
The trailer gives us a look at the Titan shield and Jensen’s “arsenal” of gun-arm augmentations, including the Tesla, the Nanoblade, and the PEPS. Weapons and augmentations can be switched quickly in order to compliment combat, non-lethal, and stealth gameplay. The trailer also gives us a look at a couple of Mankind Divided‘s locations.
Each of the games bosses are able to be defeated using either combat, stealth, or wits. “It’s all about supporting all the different play aspects,” stated gameplay director Patrick Fortier. “That was the main thing that was missing from the boss fights. Thematically, I think they were interesting, but certain players found a challenge there that wasn’t really catered to them.”
A controversial pre-order system for the game was cancelled earlier this month following complaints that the program’s tiers would only become available as pre-order sales reached pre-determined, yet undivulged, targets.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 23, 2016, and will feature a New Game Plus mode.
