With PAX Australia 2015 now in full swing, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal earlier today presented extended gameplay footage from the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Eidos Montreal’s executive narrative director Mary DeMarle was on hand to showcase the demo, which featured protagonist Adam Jensen infiltrating a theatre controlled by the infamous Dvali organised crime family. Although the footage had previously been shown off behind closed doors to members of the media, this was the first public showing of the mission, which takes place approximately two thirds of the way through the game.
The demo continued the theme of previously gameplay teasers, focusing on Mankind Divided’s overhauled level design – including increased world verticality and the ability for players to select multiple approaches to completing a particular mission – and showing off a number of Jensen’s new augmentations.
In order to remove potential spoilers, little context was provided in the way of cutscenes or story development. You can view the trailer, via the PAX Aus Twitch channel, in its entirety below (video starts at 2:26:16):
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due to release on February 23, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
