Deus Ex Notches New Game Mode, New Mobile Game

Looking strikingly similar to SUPERHOT, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach is being offered for free to all owners of Deux Ex: Mankind Divided. As a separate game mode within the Deus Ex package, you step into the role of an anonymous hacker, who then must break into secure servers with his digital avatar, engaging in shooting and puzzle sections along the way. The game mode offers separate progression from the main game, while still having its own mysteries to be uncovered. Not only that, but players can challenge one another in contested runs, earning currency to be used in Breach to further augment your firepower and abilities. The arcade twist on the Deus Ex formula will also have new challenges and missions offered regularly.

In another addition, there is a third installment of the GO franchise, this time involving Adam Jensen. Lara Croft: GO and Hitman: GO were received quite well by the gaming press, and this new version, promising the “most challenging puzzles to date” will take place within the Deus Ex universe as well, and have its own storyline. The teaser trailer linked below has little to offer, but Square Enix is sure to have more details when E3 rolls around next week.

Official Press Release

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – 8 June 2016 – Award-winning Canadian studios Eidos®-Montréal and Square-Enix® Montréal today announced two new additions to the Deus Ex Universe®: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided® – Breach and Deus Ex GO™, both bringing new elements to the rich transmedia universe.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Breach is an innovative game mode included in 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, 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.

“We are introducing a brand new game mode to Deus Ex. In addition to being a new visual approach for the players, the Breach mode broadens the lore of the Deus Ex universe” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Breach also reinforces Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s gameplay experience with a totally different setting”

Deus Ex GO is a turn-based infiltration puzzle game set in a stylized interpretation of the Deus Ex Universe. As double agent Adam Jensen, you’ll use hacking, combat, and augmentations to solve the most challenging puzzles of the entire GO series. Work alongside your allies in TF29 and the Juggernaut Collective as you infiltrate locations to unravel the conspiracy behind a terrorist plot.”

“With Deus Ex, we are taking the GO franchise to another level. We are building on the learnings of Hitman™ and Lara Croft® to go a step further with Deus Ex in terms of visual, game design and social features” said Patrick Naud, Head of Studio at Square Enix Montreal.

The Deus Ex Universe is also expanding outside of the video game world: Eidos-Montréal has partnered with Open Bionics, the award-winning robotics start-up and Razer, the world leader in creating connected devices and software for gamers to bring Deus Ex inspired augmentations to life. The three companies will partner up to help bridge the gap between fiction and reality, working together to design, 3D print, scan, power, and create affordable bionic hands. This initiative will combine the expertise of each company, with the ultimate goal being to make fashionable robotic prosthesis accessible to a larger audience. More information can be found here.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on August 23rd for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Deus Ex GO will be arriving this summer on phones and tablets.

Hitman GO ended on Steam so wouldn't be surprised to see this eventually too.

Always enjoyed the 'Deus Ex' series, even that awful tablet/steam Jean Reno infused game. 'Human Revolution' was absolutely fantastic and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on 'Mankind Divided' and this little side game as well. Great stuff!
