Square Enix and Eidos Montreal launched the new Deus Ex: Mankind Divided this week for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The new cybernoir, futuristic action-RPG stars a returning Adam Jensen investigating a terrorist cell that seems to be threatening the fickle balance between augs and humans. The game has already begun to receive sparkling reviews from outlets for its mature take on adult subject matter, as well as its grounded depiction of a future that may not be too far off.
Square launched the game alongside a towering mural in downtown London by Old Custard Factory in Birmingham. They had street artist Jim Vision depict Jensen and some of the familiar faces from Mankind Divided on a vertical wall, capturing the progress of the street art’s creation using a few drones. You can check out the quick making-of video below.
The art looks pretty darn cool, but to top it all off they had the florescent lights shaped in the structure oftentimes seen within the promotional art for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The shape itself is mirrored after the wings of Icarus sprouting out from Jensen that were depicted in the original CG animation that Square put together for Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
In addition to the real life mural, Eidos Montreal also released some sleek new concept art of various cities envisioned for how they would look in 2029. You can check them out below.
The look of Sydney and Stockholm are kind of breathtaking. I think Paris looks just a bit gaudy and I don’t think the French would be too fond of messing with the Eiffel Tower. There’s something magical about the Tower’s untouched, classical design. It adds a bit of rustic romanticism to the cityscape of Paris.
Also, Berlin looks military as funk in that one concept image. Not too surprising given the way things are going at the moment with all the terrorist attacks destabilizing civil infrastructure over there.
Anyway, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s pre-loading began over the weekend. So if you pre-ordered you should already be playing ahead of everyone else. If you did not pre-order, you can pick up digital copies from the respective online e-tailers, or grab a physical copy for the Xbox One, PS4 or PC for $59.99 from your local retailer.
