To get players hyped and ready for “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided,” the development team at Square Enix Eidos-Montreal had revealed a few more things alongside the new trailer. The developer presents 10 reason for why it feels that the game follows the perfect action RPG formula.

“Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” is looking at a play-how-you-want style for players. This means that players will have their choice of whether to use stealth, combat, hacking or even social exploration to meet their objectives. Of course, the way these are used will have their respective consequences and impact on the how the game will play out, according to the PlayStation Blog.

Additionally, the developer is also giving players more freedom when it comes to the customisation approach. From Adam Jensen’s augmentations to weapons, there’s a lot to choose from to ensure that the elements of the character will be in tune to the player’s playstyle.

Square Enix has also mentioned the inclusion of side quests, which are tailored towards more meaningful interactions and expositions. This involves a hacking mini-game, and one that seems to give the player more power on what can be controlled in the game.

For those who want a rich world to explore in “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided,” the developer has mentioned a few key areas in the game. There’s mention of different and diverse locations all over the world, with Dubai and Prague pegged from the real world. There’s also a fictional area called Golem City in the game.

Finally, “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided” will also feature the New Game Plus mode. This can be accessed once the player reaches the end of the game. The developer has not yet detailed what exactly the new mode will entail, though it did mention the possibility of mixing up and experimenting with one’s playstyle during this mode.

A few screenshots were provided showing some of the environment in “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.” Adam Jensen is also in the middle of the action, so it’s worth checking out together with the trailer, seen below.

Preorders are already available for the game. There’s a Day One Edition and a Collector’s Edition, as detailed by Game Informer. The first edition features one additional in-game mission, a Covert agent pack featuring in-game items, cosmetics and upgrades, a digital soundtrack sample and a digital art book, novella and comic. This will be available for US$59.99 (approx. AU$78.50).

The Collector’s Edition will already include the Day One Edition items, plus a few special inclusions. It will come with a special packaging, a 48-page art book, a Steelbook case, and most importantly, a nine-inch Adam Jensen figurine. This will cost US$139.99 (approx. AU$183).

Players who do not want to spend on the additional physical features can go for two other editions. The Digital Standard Edition will have the Day One content for US$59.99 (approx. AU$78.50). The Digital Deluxe Edition will have the base game and the season pass for US$89.99 (approx. AU$117.75).
