Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Goes Gold, Preps For Release
(Last Updated On: July 31, 2016)

Eidos sent out a tweet recently to let gamers know that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has officially gone gold. The game is prepping for its August 23rd release date for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The tweet from the official Deus Ex account keeps it short and sweet. Stating the following.

It’s kind of weird but for some reason they don’t have the system specs available over on the Steam store page yet. They do mention that the system requirements โ€“ both the minimum and recommended โ€“ will arrive soon. The game is still three weeks out from release so hopefully โ€œsoonโ€ means days and not weeks.

Eidos and Square Enix have been pumping out a lot of collaborative promotional material for the game, including teaming up with Open Bionics to release a full 3D printed, robotic prosthetic based on the augmentations from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

The game will feature the standard story mode, multiple endings and the new Breach game mode, which you can check out below in case you missed it before.

There’s also some pre-purchase bonuses made available for those who pay early, including an extra in-game mission, a DLC agent pack, a digital novella, a digital comic book, an artbook and an OST sampler. Thankfully the whole cybermacy soundtrack will be making a return courtesy of composer Michael McCann. He knocked it out of the ballpark with the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The โ€œIcarusโ€ theme attached with that special CG trailer Square Enix put together has gone down in history as the top rated video game trailer of all time according to GameTrailers (back when GameTrailers was a thing).

You can look for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to launch on August 23rd for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. If you need more info on the cyberpunk stealth-shooter, feel free to visit the official website.

    But the question is why every dam game needs social justice force down our throats.

    We play games like going to the pictures to watch a film to get away from real life. And SJWs fcking up that up.

    • For every other game I have no idea why they feel the need to cram that nonsense down our throats.

      But for Deus Ex keep in mind that the series (dating all the way back more than 15 years ago) has always dealt with this kind of subject matter. It’s nothing new for the series. It was always about tough moral decisions, the dangers and responsibilities of human augmentation and the effects it could potentially have on our society. Throwing in SJW stuff in games like Halo or Tomb Raider or whatever else is just stupid, but those specific topics have always been present in Deus Ex (and they don’t always have predictable or happy story results).

        Then it alright as it always have social justice at its core and been consistent though other games.

        The issues me and others is having social justice for the sake of it. You cant any social justice in ecchi game it Wouldn’t work.

        Toning them down is the end result and the game is censored that is social justice is. Good example is CG2 social justice the girls are consenting in hell the BSM Is lessen impact.

        But here the kicker they are people out there that does consenting to being tied, gagged, and whip by removing the audio to mask it as consenting is hell lot more then creeper.

        Cant believe NISA Never thought of that.

        • Criminal Girls 2 is an absurd travesty. It may not be my kind of game but the whole BDSM theme is what it is. Trying to turn it into this safe space game is just laughably ridiculous.

          I don’t remember Rockstar having to make any changes to the torture scene in GTA V where the dude gave you consent to torture him.

    Please don’t be full of social “justice” propaganda…Please don’t be full of social “justice” propaganda…Please don’t be full of social “justice” propaganda…

    • I don’t think it will have a lot of SJW propaganda. One of the running themes is mechanical apartheid, and they cover the very serious issue of what happens when augs go haywire and the danger they pose to others. It definitely touches on social justice issues, but the game itself doesn’t appear to delve into taking direct sides (or at least, from what I’ve seen it doesn’t appear that way).

      Hopefully they keep the choices and the outcomes open to the player so it maintains the same kind of weight as the previous game without becoming preachy.

        Thank you! I really am not worried about SJW themes in this game if it holds true to prior games. In Human Revolution, neither of the sides are made out to be the “good guy” or the “bad guy” as both make valid, compelling arguments while also having terrorist elements within their ranks. Even the endings back up the morally ambiguous nature of the situation.
