The much awaited sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which released back in 2011, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, is all set for a release this August 23 2016. The game, which is developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix will release on the Xbox One, PC, and the PS4.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing stealth video game, featuring the protagonist Adam Jensen. The game is a design from a first person perspective while also featuring a third person cover system. This critically acclaimed sequel to Deus Ex is set in the year 2029.
The plot is designed to start two years after the Aug Incident, which had marked the end of its former version, Human Revolution. The Aug Incident was an event where mechanically augmented humans had become violently lethal and out of control.
These humans had received implanted technology, behind public eye, by a sect called the Illuminati. They had intended to control the augmented humans with the help of such implanted technology.
The protagonist of the game, Adam Jensen, is an augmented former private security officer. He now works secretly with a hacker group, the Juggernaut Collective, who are helping him in confronting the Illuminati. At the same time he works alongside the Interpol to catch augmented human terrorist groups.
The minimum requirements in order to play the game are an Operating System of 64 bit, that is, a Windows 7 SP1 or higher. The CPU must be Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD equivalent. The game needs a minimum of 8GB RAM.
The minimum requirement of graphics are either a AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB) or NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 (2GB); and HDD/SSD of 45GB.
That being said, there is a recommended list of configurations as well for gamers. This list features an Operating System of 64-bit, Windows 10, ideally. A CPU consisting of Intel Core i7-3770K or AMD FX 8350 Wraith.
The recommended RAM being 16 GB, graphics, being of AMD Radeon RX 480 or NVIDIA GTX 970; and HDD/SSD of 55GB.
As far as the graphics are concerned, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is powered by Dawn Engine is amazing to look at both in the Demo version as well as in the game play video. The graphics engine comprises a list of cool effects like depth of field, then global illumination, as well as volumetric lighting. Also available are motion blur and air density.
The game offers a great deal to look forward to and poses a grave challenge to games like Uncharted 4 of Sony and Ghost Recon Wildlands of Ubisoft.
Some of the new developments on this game in comparison to its predecessor are that the game mechanics look more life-like. The map is more open, making the side missions more fun. There are RPG upgrade systems with more options for dialogue.
These options of social interactions provide players with more choices in tackling scenarios. This version contains more weapons, take-downs and execution. However, due to the retention of the stealth system from its previous model, players get to complete the entire game without having to kill anyone.
Thanks to the retailers who decided to sell the console version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided before its release date, first day patches and updates have been revealed to us. The initial patch on PS4 weighs a good 3.6 GB. This is because it will help in remedying various crash fixes; also enabling optimization on CPU and GPU functionality.
