Square Enix and Eidos released two pieces of information regarding their cyberpunk game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Breach mode, and the smartphone mobile version under the moniker of GO. Mankind Divided will go live for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 23rd, while GO will hit mobile devices sometime this Summer.
For a clarification with the misleading information going around about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Breach Mode being DLC or something you will need to pay for, it’s not and it comes free and a part of the main game. T
his mode called Breach is said to be an “innovative” mode that includes an arcade approach to the world of Deus Ex. Adding puzzles and a mix of shooting mechanics to dazzle up the hacking (or Ripping) experience, the new mode aims to add an arcade-like realm, which I’m sure some players will enjoy while others may not.
Once inside the new Breach mode players will need to follow the objective of stealing highly classified corporate data by sneaking and infiltrating the cybernetic area, which holds crucial data in secure servers. The funds stolen in the Breach process double as credits to purchase better weapons, gear, skills, etc.
As you play through each mission and become better other ways of upgrading yourself will become available through XP, booster packs and other goods that will help you face harder difficulties in the game. The devs note that they will roll out updates on a regular basis, which will also feature online play with others in a challenge option.
You can check out the latest trailer showing the Breach mode and everything that players can expect from it, as seen below.
Next up is the mobile version of Deus Ex. Following the trend of Lara Croft GO and Hitman GO, Square Enix and Square Enix Montreal have announced Deus Ex GO for mobile devices, which will go live sometime this Summer.
For those that don’t know about how GO games operate, players will navigate around a board as double agent Adam Jensen hacking, fighting and infiltrating places while using his augmentations to solve challenging puzzles. Working with allies in TF29 and the Juggernaut Collective to unravel a terrorist plot, players will follow different lines and paths to complete a mission without any casualties.
The latest trailer for Deus Ex GO is up and available to view, and runs for 22 seconds. You can catch the short trailer thanks to Deus Ex YouTube channel.
More information regarding both games will obviously drop during this year’s E3, which I’m sure will provide fans of the series a good ideal of what they can expect from Mankind Divided and GO. As noted above, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will go live for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 23rd, while Deus Ex GO will land on smartphones sometime this Summer.
