Deus Ex: Mankind Divided continues the hugely popular Deus Ex series. Set in the near future, the player again takes on the role of Adam Jensen, who has now joined a new organisation responsible for eliminating the ever-growing terrorist threat.

Using a variety of augmentation enhancements the player can upgrade equipment and skills. Each upgrade represents a game changing ability that the player can use to their advantage. No one path is offered to Adam when solving missions, which presents stealth, hacking, combat or diplomatic solutions to each situation you will face.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Release Period: Early 2016

Platforms Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is available on: PC, PS4 XBox One

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided full development began: 2013

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Background: It's 2029 and augmented humans have been categorised as social outcasts, completely segregated from normal society.

Adam Jensen operates as a covert ops specialist, hunting down terrorists for Task Force 29. But he has no choice but to interact with a world and help save those that despise his kind. Deus Ex Mankind Divided will offer Adam a new arsenal of top-end weapons and augmentations with which to complete his objectives. He must constantly assess the best course of action, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

What we know about Deus Ex Mankind Divided

  • Open-world, first-person shooter, role-playing game
  • You play as Adam Jensen, protagonist from the previous Deus Ex title
  • Set in 2029, 2 years after Human Revolution, in the city of Prague
  • FYI - Original Deus Ex was set in 2052
  • Augmented individuals are now feared by "naturals" following the Panchaea Incident, in Human Revolution, where Augmented people mindlessly attacked the rest of the population.
  • The player will be working for an anti-terrorist group known as Task Force 29, funded by Interpol
  • Adam also collaborates covertly for a hacker group called the Juggernaut Collective
  • Abilities you can upgrade range through the following categories: combat, social, hacking, stealth
  • There are numerous factions that each will have their own agenda. Sometimes you will be against them, sometimes working for them, depending on your choices
  • Depending on your approach to how you complete a mission, it could have certain consequences to your particular story. If you complete a mission using covert tactics then story options may be different to you compared to if you hack your way through systems or just turn to all out open warfare
  • [Spoiler of previous game] Adam Jensen discovered the Illuminati and now suspects they are the shadowy group that sits behind a lot of the terrible actions happening around the world
  • It is possible to play through the entire game without killing anyone or being detected
  • New augmentations options include: detachable nano-ceramic blade, a protective nanoshield, and a fist-mounted electro-shock system akin to modern-day Tasers
  • An augmentation exists allowing Adam to tag and take down enemies silently
  • Some enemies will be augmented with similar upgrades, making them particularly challenging
  • There is no save progress transfer from Human Revolution to Mankind Divided
  • Different parts of different endings from Human Revolution will combine to make the real history, based on rumours that spread

Deus Ex Mankind Divided Game Engine

Mankind Divided will run on the Dawn Engine. This new Dawn Engine was announced in December 2014 and is based off the Glacier game engine, that powered Hitman Absolution in 2012. 

Deus Ex Mankind Divided System Requirements (Speculative)

  • OS: Windows 7 or Windows 8 and above - 64bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 3.0GHz / AMD Phenom II X6 1065T
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 2GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 280
  • HD: 30 GB Free Hard Drive Space (speculative download size)
  • DX: DirectX 11

I loved the last game and this one, accompanied by an updated game engine, certainly gets me excited. The recommended system requirements for Mankind Divided will likely be pretty high, but we expect some breadth on the minimum requirements to enable a range of lower end machines to run the latest Deus Ex.

Check out the latest E3 2015 trailer for DE:MD to get your augmentations warmed up for Deus Ex Mankind Divided's explosive release in 2016.

Eh, kinda bummed there won't save import - pretty much guarantees quite a few things will be left vague or unmentioned (Faridah, Missing Link's ending). Still, it's HR2; so hyped for this and XCOM2.

I figured they'd re-use jensen, in my opinion he was a very engrossing and complex character and it wouldve been a shame to waste that.

Hmm... 960 as recommended? If so that would only be because they plan to give Dx12 support. If not then a 670 would be just as good on Dx11. GTX 960 vs GTX 670

This game definetely doesn't look good enough to require such a powerful GPU for Recommended Settings in my opinion.

I bet you wouldn't be saying that if you knew how that stuff works. Just saying. Have you ever even seen a video of the gameplay or even a tech demo of the various graphics options?

I agree with Star Warrior... Third gen i5/Phenom-X6 plus GTX 960 or R9 280 is actually a reasonable set of recommended requirements... They're actually about comparable to what you need to max Metro: Last Light, BF4 and Crysis 3 which released in 2013... It looks better than Arkham Knight did on PC at initial release but is not asking a monster i7 plus GTX 970 or R9 290X for max at 1080p so be grateful for that...

This game looks better than Dying Light,witcher 3, and arkham knight. And those games reccomend an R9 290/970.


These requirements are conservative.

Dear people
I didn't say that the game doesn't look good , I said it doesn't look good enough based on what we have seen so far (screenshots). And now , I dont think it looks better than The Witcher 3 or Metro. These screenshots might be from pre-rendered footage.

But this is a completely different studio, who did a fine job optimising the last Deus Ex.

If the graphics of Deus Ex are similar to the initial CG reveal then the final requirements for high settings will be far greater than a 270X/GTX 960
