- Takes place in 2029, 2 years after Human Revolution
- Listed as single-player, no mention of multiplayer
- Jensen is part of a covert, government-sponsored task force called Task Force 29, a new branch of Interpol, to combat a new breed of terrorism
- Jensen doesn’t full trust Task Force 29, also feeds intel to another covert organization called the Juggernaut Collective
- In true Deus Ex fashion, you often receive conflicting missions, neither can be fully trusted
- Boss encounters are designed in a way to allow players to approach any way they want (stealth, full combat, etc)
- Eidos won’t comment on which ending it considers canon but is trying to string together different parts of each ending for the overall background of Mankind Divided
- Story is in many ways a story of redemption for Jensen
- The story they’re telling is building to events that take place in the original Deus Ex
- With Mankind Divided, they’re exploring the original game’s past; “Is the depiction of past events from the original Deus Ex true? Will we discover stuff we never knew?”
- Added a lot of diversity to the environments
- Females are also now part of the regular enemies in the game
- One of Jensen’s missions takes him to Utulek Station in Prague, now a ghetto for augmented individuals
- It is nicknamed “Golem City”, based on the real life Kowloon Walled City
- Shops line the streets, temporary housing units stacked on one another reaching upwards toward the sky; claustrophobic atmosphere
- Mission to track down a leader of an aug group, but police have captured the informant
- Can choose to butter up the informant’s wife for clues or cause a scene with the police
- Alternatively Jensen can bypass this area of the game altogether and find the leader’s hideout on his own
- Mentions Jensen engaging in tense conversation with the leader, resulting in a diplomatic solution or violence
- Transhumans (augs) referred to as “clanks” by police
- “You can go full combat or full stealth throughout any part of the game”
- Side quests meant to be more meaningful; ex. players can choose to make deals with criminal organizations and its mob boss might call in a favor later interrupting main missions
- Doesn’t want fetch quests, the team sees the extra quests as a way to explore the main themes of the game more deeply
- Features twice as many augmentations as Human Revolution
