Artists behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided imagine the world in 2029
(http://www.alphr.com/games/1002907/artists-behind-deus-ex-mankind-divided-imagine-the-world-in-2029)



Ahead of the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the artists at Eidos-Montreal have turned their attention to cities across the globe, as pictured in their particular vision of 2029. As is true to the overall tone of the series, the results are a combination of dramatic techno-utopias and human poverty – as if Howard Roark from Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead had been given free reign, without much care given to how the masses would actually fit.

Also chiming with the game’s attention to biological augmentation, the architecture is sinewy and organic, as if it has spread out of pre-existing buildings like a malignant growth. It isn’t a million miles from Tokyo-based artist AUJIK’s augmented reality video of a surreal, spiraling Osaka.

With that success comes the pressure of sequels, and often universes feel the strain under the weight of a rapidly-expanding universe that must support multiple properties. One of those most responsible for bearing the weight of Deus Ex's impressively sized and considered worldview is Mary DeMarle, now serving as Lead Writer on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at Eidos Montreal.

We sat down with Mary to discuss the challenges of crafting such a game world, what's narratively new for Mankind Divided, and the thought process behind some of the game's narrative choices.

Square Enix to join CNN for Deus Ex-style human augmentation conference
(http://www.shacknews.com/article/95629/square-enix-to-join-cnn-for-deus-ex-style-human-augmentation-conference)


The one-day conference will brings a variety of experts to three panel discussions related to the intersection of technology and humanity. The panels include:

Is Augmentation a human right? - This panel will address how augmentation can be accessible to everyone on the planet.
Selective vs. Therapeutic - Panelists will discuss who should have the final say on augmentation procedures, doctor or individuals.
The Future of the Far, Far Next - Discussion will center on what medical advances will enable 10 years from now

The conference will end with the presentation of a Code of Ethics on Human Augmentation, drafted by the Human by Design Board comprised of conference speakers. "The Code is meant to engage a deeper conversation around the issues of human augmentation, while reflecting the specific views of the authors, in an effort to help shape the future of the industry," according to the conference web site.

“Human by Design goes beyond bringing to life the key themes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," said Jon Grant, senior product marketing manager at Square Enix. "This conference is a special opportunity for a video game to take pause from the limitless world we play in, and to drive the conversation around what is really happening in the space of human augmentation. Our hope is that the gaming world tunes into the conference and is inspired to get involved as well.”

The conference will also be streamed live on the Deus Ex Twitch channel, as well as CNN's proprietary Launchpad social channel.

Remember that gunshot detection system in DX1s Hong Kong? Well, a Shanghai-based company will make something like that available to the mass market at around 100$ this year.

Sengled Puts Voice-Controlled Home Automation in a Smart Bulb
http://www.cepro.com/article/sengled_puts_voice-controlled_home_automation_in_a_smart_bulb

Certainly the concept has been implemented in expensive surveillance hardware projects before but with this being updated, sold to the public and for cheap, I can see this become a quite serious issue.

http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/CES-2016-Gluehbirne-hoert-mit-3056853.html

In this german language article it's said that the actual "gunshot detection" thing would be easily achieved but won't be implemented from the start due to the costs for licensing the required sound signatures.

We're pleased to announce the first issue of the new Deus Ex Universe comic series, entitled 'Children's Crusade'. Here is a quick synposis on it:

With society still reeling from the Aug Incident - the Illuminati orchestrated event which caused augmented individuals to mindlessly attack their 'natural' counterparts - anti-aug sentiment is at an all-time global high. Task Force 29 - an Interpol-funded coalition, created to quash the rising tide of terrorist activity - stands as the world's main defence against total anarchy.

In the city of Prague, where tension is especially high, the team's latest recruit, Adam Jensen, readies for his first mission with the unit. But being augmented himself, how will the former SWAT officer handle himself when faced with the grim reality of the mechanical apartheid?

This comic will be hitting store shelves in February 2016.
Check your local comic book store for availability details in your area, and be sure to give us your feedback on Facebook and Twitter!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is reinventing the art of the side-quest (http://www.gamesradar.com/deus-ex-mankind-divided-reinventing-art-side-quest/)


“I hate ‘side-quests’ and ‘side-missions’ as a term,” says gameplay director, Patrick Fortier, “because I love them so much in gameplay, and I feel it belittles what they actually are. I think the philosophy here was not have a tremendous amount of them - we invested in deeper stuff, and twists in terms of the gameplay.”

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.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has an answer to one Human Revolution criticism up its sleeve (http://venturebeat.com/2015/10/27/deus-ex-mankind-divideds-has-an-answer-to-one-human-revolution-criticism-up-its-sleeve/)


The original Deus Ex holds a place of honor among games.

Back in 2000, it was an early example of the narrative shooter genre, something was more concerned with storytelling and character development than with action. There was still plenty of action to be had in Deus Ex, for players who chose to build their character around combat, but the design allowed them to use stealth, hacking, or diplomacy to resolve situations too. The 2011 prequel Deus Ex: Human Revolution used these core principles, but it also introduced players to a new protagonist, Adam Jensen. That star returns in 2016 with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

GamesBeat spoke with game designer Antoine Tisdale about what the future holds for Jensen and how Mankind Divided (which arrives February 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC) will honor its ancestry.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided[official site] is already looking like a worthy follow-up to Human Revolution as well as an inventive prequel to Ion Storm’s original cyberpunk classic. When we visited the studio to play the game earlier this month, we also spent time talking to two of the brains behind the game about the inspirations and processes that go into this bleak vision of the future.

First up, here’s Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, executive art director at the studio. We spoke to him about collaborative storytelling, fashion, architecture and graphic design. Along the way we learned about content cut from Human Revolution, the places that Deus Ex is going next and why Jacques-Belletête believes that India could be a perfect cyberpunk setting...

Gamezone Preview: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided brings refinement over revolution (http://www.gamezone.com/previews/preview-deus-ex-mankind-divided-brings-refinement-over-revolution-jwqz)


When you interview a game developer, there are always these kneejerk questions that pop out. They’re the basic bullet points -- how many players does it support, will it have DLC, is it coming to Wii U, how is it pushing the new consoles? -- they’re often softball questions leading up to the more interesting stuff. And usually devs have an equally kneejerk answer to these types of questions. So it was a bit of a surprise when I caught Eidos Montreal executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas off-guard when asking how a new console gen would make Deus Ex better...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will handle endings better than its predecessor (http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/10/12/deus-ex-mankind-divided-will-handle-endings-better-than-its-predecessor/)


While Deus Ex: Human Revolution was well received by critics and fans alike, there were some elements more criticized than others. Aside from the game’s outsourced boss battles, the ending was the area of greatest contention among fans. In short, all the choices the player makes throughout the game are meaningless to the ending, which is determined by which big button the player does or doesn’t press. “Which ending do you want?” the game seemed to ask. That won’t happen with the sequel, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, says the developer.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's head writer "wanted to kill" Adam Jensen (http://www.gamesradar.com/deus-ex-mankind-divideds-lead-writer-wanted-kill-adam-jensen/)


Adam Jensen is the Deus Ex series' first returning lead character, which brings new challenges for the writers (not least, having to canonise an ending). So many challenges, it seems, that Jensen could well have been killed off before Mankind Divided started.

In an interview with GamesRadar last week, executive narrative director, Mary DeMarle explained, "when we started Mankind Divided we knew he was coming back, but when we finished Human Revolution we didn’t know he was coming back!" Executive art director, Jonathan Jacques-Belletête simplifies that a little:

"She wanted to kill him! I thought she was crazy! At first I was like 'All my work! God damn!' It’s so freaking hard to create an iconic hero in this industry, it just kind of happened by magic, so I was like “Mary! What are you doing?”

Deus Ex on Twitter: "You asked for this: we are cancelling the "Augment your Pre-Order" program. Read all the details ...

https://www.deusex.com/news/aypo-cancelled

https://steamcommunity.com/games/337000/announcements/detail/66783563363172366


At both Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal, we’ve been listening to everything you’ve had to say about the Augment Your Pre-Order program. When it was first conceived, we wanted the program to give you more choice about what you received in terms of pre-order incentives - because we've seen in the past that when we choose those packages ourselves, and split them across regions, it has caused frustration. We quickly noticed that this approach created even more frustration than before, resulting in a resounding amount of negative feedback.

We’ve spent a lot of time reading through all of your comments, working to understand how we can try to make things right for you. After much thought and reflection, we decided to close down the program and make all of the incentive content available to anyone who pre-orders Deus Ex: Mankind Divided or purchases a Day 1 edition of the game. Additionally, the release date will no longer be changed in accordance with pre-order numbers, and everyone will gain access to the game on February 23rd, 2016.

Your feedback and input is of the utmost importance to us-- as it’s your loyalty and passion for our franchises that gives us the opportunity to continue providing you with great gaming experiences.

To our faithful fans who’ve already pre-ordered: we will be taking care of everything necessary to ensure that all of the changes to the program will be automatically applied to your purchase. Meanwhile, we'd like to thank everybody for their feedback - we know this wouldn't have happened with a game that nobody cared about, and we're just focusing now on delivering a game that lives up to your hopes and expectations.

The game is not yet part of Xbox One's backwards compatibility initiative but at E3 when Xbox boss Phil Spencer made the announcement, he said all that was needed to start the process was the consent of a game's developers and publishers.

The Design And Politics Of Deus Ex Mankind Divided (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/08/28/deus-ex-mankind-divided-politics/)
by Graham Smith / RPS



At Gamescom 2015, I had the opportunity to talk to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay director Patrick Fortier. We talked about feeling a sense of ownership over Deus Ex at last, expanding the language of its level design beyond vents, and the politics of a “mechanical apartheid.” Before I asked him about the game’s ceilings..

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Interview with Eidos Montreal’s Steve Szczepkowski (http://powerupgaming.co.uk/2015/08/25/deus-ex-mankind-divided-interview-with-eidos-montreal/)


With long-running series Deus Ex’s latest instalment, Mankind Divided, slated for next year and plenty of information already circulating the series of tubes that is the internet, Power Up Gaming was recently given the opportunity to sit down with the creative minds behind the sci-fi franchise, Eidos Montreal. After getting hands on with a demo build of the game, we had the privilege to speak with the studio’s executive audio director, Steve Szczepkowski, about enhanced audio and aesthetics, player choice and even a hypothetical pub encounter with Metal Gear Solid’s Snake.

It was also our pleasure to interview Steve alongside Mateja Simovic, editor of fellow gaming and entertainment website Capsule Computers. So, here’s to hoping some of your eager questions were answered in this Power Up Gaming two-on-one developer interview.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – "Bringing Adam Jensen To Life"

Greg Miller hosts Jean-Francois Dugas, Jonathan Jacques-Belletete and Elias Toufexis, respectively Executive Game Director, Executive Art Director and the actor for Adam Jensen on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

They will provide insight on what it takes to fully realize a character such as Adam Jensen, an augmented covert agent, on the new generation of consoles and PC. While Elias will share his thoughts on doing mocap and recording dialogues, our developers will dive into his story and design, as well as their goals for the experience of playing as Adam Jensen in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. You will also get the opportunity to ask them questions about the game and their careers in the video game industry.

Panelists:

Viral Marketing for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the Streets of New York (http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2015/08/22/viral-marketing-for-deus-ex-mankind-divided-on-the-streets-of-new-york/163740/)



It’s rare nowadays to see physical marketing for video games such as billboards, commercials, or even posters, really. This changed when the people over at AugAware.org decided to warn the people of New York with posters depicting the safety of humans being compromised by augmented individuals. Of course, none of that is real because it’s all from the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, including the website provided (if you click on the link).

Eidos Montreal and Square Enix put up these posters both to promote this game as well as to allow fans to get secret wallpapers by photographing the QR code at the bottom of the posters.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is flying over to Germany for Gamescom!



Here’s a breakdown of our activities this week:

For those of you who will be going to Gamescom, come visit us at Square Enix’s booth. You’ll be able to see a presentation of our game, and receive a mini Adam figurine!

Online, join us on Friday August 7th at 12:00 EST on Twitch for a new episode of DXTV, in which we’ll share some new information on Mankind Divided – directly from our dev team. It will be followed by the the first public streaming of our panel “The Art and Story of Mankind Divided”, presented at San Diego Comic-Con a couple weeks ago.

We will also be doing an AMA on the official Deus Ex subreddit this Friday, with Patrick Fortier (Gameplay Director) and Mary DeMarle (Executive Narrative Director). Come ask your questions to our team!

Now excuse me, I need to go lie down before I faint. Aaahhh, excitement!

PC Gamer - DX:MD won't force you to kill its bosses (http://www.pcgamer.com/deus-ex-mankind-divided-wont-force-you-to-kill-its-bosses/)


You can count me among the vocal majority who loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution but absolutely hated its boss battles. Thankfully Eidos Montreal heard our cries, because the studio is approaching bosses differently in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. While it's previously been hinted that boss battles won't rely on violence, new details suggest you'll be able to negotiate with them. Better still, you might choose to keep them alive.

You can defeat bosses in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided by talking to them (http://www.vg247.com/2015/07/25/deus-ex-mankind-divided-bosses-pc-ps4-xbox-one/) (See August update)


Speaking in the latest issue of OXM, via GamesRadar, gameplay director Patrick Fortier said bosses in Mankind Divided are more balanced this time out, and conversations can provided players with “a different means of dealing” with the situation.

“For Human Revolution, because of the way we designed it, always died in the cutscenes,” added narrative director Mary DeMarle. “You had no choice. But we rectified that in the Missing Link DLC, and we’ve rectified it in this game.”

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Will Not Support Multiplayer (http://www.ibtimes.co.in/deus-ex-mankind-divided-will-not-support-multiplayer-640109)


Almost every game released these days comes with more focus on the multiplayer aspect of it than the single player version. So it's kind of an odd-ball situation for some when developers announce they won't be supporting multiplayer for a certain title. Now it seems similar will be the deal with the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Jean-François Dugas on the series, augmentations and the future of gaming (http://factor-tech.com/feature/deus-ex-mankind-divideds-jean-francois-dugas-on-the-series-augmentations-and-the-future-of-gaming/)




The Deus Ex series is a rare thing in gaming. Combining choice-based gameplay with strong transhumanist themes, Eidos Montreal’s epic series lets us explore a near-future Earth where augmentations are common and morality is fluid. Perhaps more importantly, it’s also incredibly fun to play, and with the last installment, Human Revolution, proving to be such a hit, we’re excited to find out what next year’s release, Mankind Divided, has to offer.

We caught up with executive game director Jean-François Dugas to find out more about what we can expect, his thoughts on the issues the series raises and how he envisions gaming to progress in the future. A cautionary note, though: there are some light spoilers for Human Revolution ahead...

Deus Ex would be “perfect” for virtual reality: Mankind Divided executive game director (http://factor-tech.com/gaming/18789-deus-ex-would-be-perfect-for-virtual-reality-mankind-divided-executive-game-director/)


The transhumanist video game franchise Deus Ex would be “perfect” for a sequel made for virtual reality, according to Jean-François Dugas, executive game director of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Dugas, who made the comments in an interview with Factor featured in the newly released gaming issue, said that the level of detail put into each Deus Ex game would make the franchise well-suited for a transition to VR.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Shows Technology at Its Peak, Humanity at its Worst (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/deus-ex-mankind-divided-shows-technology-at-its-pe/1100-6428930)


Deus Ex: Human Revolution was about the world changing. Whether those changes were for the better or the worse was up to players; in the last moments of the game, protagonist Adam Jensen--a man made half-machine after a fatal encounter that should have killed him--was handed power over humanity's fate. Jensen's final choice, made by the player, could either warn humanity of augmentation's dangers moving forward or offer them a partial version of the truth. Alternatively, Jensen could place blame in such a way that augmentation and technological resource will flourish as humanity turns on its opponents in anger.

But there was one more ending. By doing nothing--choosing none of the above--Jensen would activate the self-destruction of Panchaea, the island home of the world's most ambitious geo-engineering projects. By destroying Panchaea and everyone on it at the time, Jensen makes a statement that it isn't up to one person or group to decide the world's fate; it's humanity's own choice to make.

It is this final choice that developer Eidos Montreal has chosen to use as the base for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the sequel to Human Revolution. But in making this one ending canon, some fans of the series say it ruins the poignancy of the choices they made in Human Revolution. But according to Deus Ex executive art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete, the path chosen for Mankind Divided includes elements of all possible endings. In wrecking Panchaea, you do many things--expose the truth, but not all of it, and allow humanity a chance to decipher the meaning of these things for themselves.

RPS - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: An Interview About Jensen 2.0 (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/07/13/deus-ex-mankind-divided-interview/)


Deus Ex meets District 9″ is how the company described Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] during a demo I attended at E3. Set two years after Human Revolution, Mankind Divided showcases a society still deeply fearful after the Aug Incident where mechanically augmented people turned violent, stripped of self-control after a signal deliberately interfered with their in-built bio-chips. The scale of the incident means augmentations are now viewed with suspicion and augmented people treated as outcasts. Adam Jensen himself is working as a counter-terrorist agent fighting some of the resultant crime. Well. That’s his day job. He secretly believes the task force was set up by the Illuminti for a different purpose and is working to take them down.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided interview: Destinations and play styles (http://www.examiner.com/article/deus-ex-mankind-divided-interview-destinations-and-play-styles)


If you have played the first two Deus Ex games in the series, then you know about the global nature each one has taken since the franchise began back in 2000. Taking you places you've never been to before and embracing the fashion in which you wish to play are staples for Deus Ex.

Getting back to where you will go, Eidos has promised visiting some diverse locations via the game's narrative. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Executive Audio Director Steve Szczepkowski mentioned to Examiner.com a few locations we already know about, but did say people can expect to be taken to some new places around the world.

We're getting more than a little excited for the latest entry in the Deus Ex franchise, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (not least because its narrative choices will shape the story around you and because it's shaping up to be a better shooter than most actual shooters), but we still can't help thinking wistfully of how the series used to be back in the day. In the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, executive art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête discusses the legacy of the original Deus Ex and the possibility of finally weaving the entire Deus Ex mythos together.


"I think we could totally connect our games exactly to how the first Deus ex went," he says. "I think so. it just makes sense. Because you see in the first one, the stage is already set. Gunther and Anna, they’re relics, mechanically augmented, and there are tons of jokes about that in the game – ‘rusty old toasters’, ‘tin cans’ – because the new augmented people are [genetically enhanced] guys like JC Denton and Walton Simons. so the stage is all set."

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a better shooter than most actual shooters (http://www.gamesradar.com/deus-ex-mankind-divided-better-shooter-most-actual-shooters)

As everybody's favourite humourless transhumanist Adam Jensen steps into a beautifully sunlit Prague train station, for once his funny little pop-up shades are justified. Imagine that, a Deus Ex game not set during an apparent month-long solar eclipse. Already the visual difference between Mankind Divided and its predecessor is, well, night and day. Fitting that its new engine should be called Dawn.

GameInformer coverage details thanks to NeoGAF



-Takes place in 2029, 2 years after Human Revolution
-Listed as single-player, no mention of multiplayer
-Jensen is part of a covert, goverment-sponsored task force called Task Force 29, a new bracnh 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
-Aug examples:

Tesla: little darts pop out of Jensen's knuckles allowing him to tag enemies and take them out quietly
Silent Run: Allows Jensen to move quickly across any floor without making a sound (can combine with cloaking)
C.A.S.I.E.: Allows Jensen to analyze the mental state of individuals, helping him to respond adequately in conversations
PEPS Gun: Non-lethal weapon that pops out of Jensen's bionic arm and fires a concussive blast allowing him to knock an enemy out, kill him or flee

-Augmentation features can be assigned on the d-pad for quick selection
-Augmentations consume a fixed amount of energy, when Jensen stops using them he regains a portion of it
-Can still refill his augs completely with bio cells, Eidos wants the recharge mechanic to encourage using augs more liberally
-New remote hack augmentation allows Jensen to activate shortcuts through areas to pass enemies
-No plan for Human Revolution saves to carry over, but Eidos is planning for a franchise now, want to expand further after HR's success
-No plans for a Deus Ex MMO
-Eidos noted fans who played stealthily enjoyed the game more so spent several years iterating on gunplay
-Mankind Divided's moment-to-moment action plays out like a series of set-piece moments, a 'remarkable feat' considering nothing is scripted
-Jensen can adjust his weapons at any point mid-battle, changing ammo type, firing pattern, scopes, etc
-Some enemies have external tech like exoskeletons and mechs to combat Jensen
-Variety of enemies have a diversity of weapons, augments, or other high-tech combat tools, some have high-jump abilities, etc
-Focused on making A.I. more aggressive, flanking, etc
-Certain elements of the environment now react to combat

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: The Story So Far (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/deus-ex-mankind-divided-the-story-so-far/1100-6426574/)


Can't remember your Jensens from your Juggernauts?
Read this refresher on the ending of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and where its sequel, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, could take its story.

The backstory and continuity of the Deus Ex series are complex to the point of confusion. When you have multiple shadowy organisations, mysterious characters controlling puppet governments, and a cornucopia of conspiracies running alongside all of this, things can get confusing.

With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided picking up two years after the end of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, it's worth refreshing your knowledge of what happened at the end of Adam Jensen's first adventure, and what the state of Deus Ex's world is.

Warning: This article contains major spoilers for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the original Deus Ex.

Juggernaut Collective Community (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Juggernaut-Collective/203240233211107?sk=info&tab=page_info/)


The Juggernaut Collective is a global cyber network of hackers, most likely led by the mysterious hacker known as the Gang of Five (GO5).

More info from Wiki:


The Juggernaut Collective is a global cyberterrorist group in Deus Ex: Icarus Effect, and Deus Ex: The Fall. It is most likely led by the mysterious hacker known as Janus, or the Gang of Five (GO5), a collective of faceless hackers.

The organization was known to be on the NSA's most wanted list. They were also responsible for bankrupting two Fortune 500 companies, crashing the Syrian intelligence agency's mainframe and bringing the Seattle traffic grid to a standstill. They also had close ties with The New Sons of Freedom, thus helping the NSF from drawing attention to themselves by many of the worlds intelligence agencies. Members of the organization included a 19-year old hacker named D-Bar, Juan Ivanovich Lebedev, Ben Saxon and Anna Kelso. Their headquarters is located in a hangar at an unknown location, protected by an electromagnetic shield. The Collective was severely damaged by the Illuminati at the end of Icarus Effect after D-Bar betrays the Collective, but Janus survived the raid, and was able to support Garvin Quinn in his investigation of Belltower Associates' Rifleman Bank Station during the events of The Missing Link.
A juggernaut is a literal or metaphorical force regarded as mercilessly destructive and unstoppable.
The group shares many traits with the real life hacktivist group, Anonymous, such as anonymity and the use of aliases, a sense of righteousness and the aim to expose corruption.

According to Adrian Askarieh, one of the producers spearheading development on the live-action Deus Ex film, the movie is no longer happening at CBS Films. Making the futuristic, human augmentation feature requires a budget that may be to expensive for a film studio that has never spent over $30 million dollars to produce a film.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a better shooter than most actual shooters (http://www.gamesradar.com/deus-ex-mankind-divided-better-shooter-most-actual-shooters)

As everybody's favourite humourless transhumanist Adam Jensen steps into a beautifully sunlit Prague train station, for once his funny little pop-up shades are justified. Imagine that, a Deus Ex game not set during an apparent month-long solar eclipse. Already the visual difference between Mankind Divided and its predecessor is, well, night and day. Fitting that its new engine should be called Dawn.

We're getting more than a little excited for the latest entry in the Deus Ex franchise, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (not least because its narrative choices will shape the story around you and because it's shaping up to be a better shooter than most actual shooters), but we still can't help thinking wistfully of how the series used to be back in the day. In the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, executive art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête discusses the legacy of the original Deus Ex and the possibility of finally weaving the entire Deus Ex mythos together.


"I think we could totally connect our games exactly to how the first Deus ex went," he says. "I think so. it just makes sense. Because you see in the first one, the stage is already set. Gunther and Anna, they’re relics, mechanically augmented, and there are tons of jokes about that in the game – ‘rusty old toasters’, ‘tin cans’ – because the new augmented people are [genetically enhanced] guys like JC Denton and Walton Simons. so the stage is all set."

RPS - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: An Interview About Jensen 2.0 (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/07/13/deus-ex-mankind-divided-interview/)


Deus Ex meets District 9″ is how the company described Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] during a demo I attended at E3. Set two years after Human Revolution, Mankind Divided showcases a society still deeply fearful after the Aug Incident where mechanically augmented people turned violent, stripped of self-control after a signal deliberately interfered with their in-built bio-chips. The scale of the incident means augmentations are now viewed with suspicion and augmented people treated as outcasts. Adam Jensen himself is working as a counter-terrorist agent fighting some of the resultant crime. Well. That’s his day job. He secretly believes the task force was set up by the Illuminti for a different purpose and is working to take them down.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Shows Technology at Its Peak, Humanity at its Worst (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/deus-ex-mankind-divided-shows-technology-at-its-pe/1100-6428930)


Deus Ex: Human Revolution was about the world changing. Whether those changes were for the better or the worse was up to players; in the last moments of the game, protagonist Adam Jensen--a man made half-machine after a fatal encounter that should have killed him--was handed power over humanity's fate. Jensen's final choice, made by the player, could either warn humanity of augmentation's dangers moving forward or offer them a partial version of the truth. Alternatively, Jensen could place blame in such a way that augmentation and technological resource will flourish as humanity turns on its opponents in anger.

But there was one more ending. By doing nothing--choosing none of the above--Jensen would activate the self-destruction of Panchaea, the island home of the world's most ambitious geo-engineering projects. By destroying Panchaea and everyone on it at the time, Jensen makes a statement that it isn't up to one person or group to decide the world's fate; it's humanity's own choice to make.

It is this final choice that developer Eidos Montreal has chosen to use as the base for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the sequel to Human Revolution. But in making this one ending canon, some fans of the series say it ruins the poignancy of the choices they made in Human Revolution. But according to Deus Ex executive art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete, the path chosen for Mankind Divided includes elements of all possible endings. In wrecking Panchaea, you do many things--expose the truth, but not all of it, and allow humanity a chance to decipher the meaning of these things for themselves.

The Deus Ex series is a rare thing in gaming. Combining choice-based gameplay with strong transhumanist themes, Eidos Montreal’s epic series lets us explore a near-future Earth where augmentations are common and morality is fluid. Perhaps more importantly, it’s also incredibly fun to play, and with the last installment, Human Revolution, proving to be such a hit, we’re excited to find out what next year’s release, Mankind Divided, has to offer.

We caught up with executive game director Jean-François Dugas to find out more about what we can expect, his thoughts on the issues the series raises and how he envisions gaming to progress in the future. A cautionary note, though: there are some light spoilers for Human Revolution ahead...

Speaking in the latest issue of OXM, via GamesRadar, gameplay director Patrick Fortier said bosses in Mankind Divided are more balanced this time out, and conversations can provided players with “a different means of dealing” with the situation.

“For Human Revolution, because of the way we designed it, [bosses] always died in the cutscenes,” added narrative director Mary DeMarle. “You had no choice. But we rectified that in the Missing Link DLC, and we’ve rectified it in this game.”

Thankfully Eidos Montreal heard our cries, because the studio is approaching bosses differently in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

It’s rare nowadays to see physical marketing for video games such as billboards, commercials, or even posters, really.

We talked about feeling a sense of ownership over Deus Ex at last, expanding the language of its level design beyond vents, and the politics of a “mechanical apartheid.” Before I asked him about the game’s ceilings..

Deus Ex devs want Human Revolution Xbox One backwards compatibility (http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/deus-ex-devs-want-human-evolution-xbox-one-backwards-compatibility-1518185)


Xbox One users may be able to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Microsoft's console prior to the release of sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in 2016. The revelation that Eidos Montreal is "working to make it happen" was made on the game's official Twitter account in response to a fan's query.

The developers said they are "hoping to have good news soon". The game is not yet part of Xbox One's backwards compatibility initiative but at E3 when Xbox boss Phil Spencer made the announcement, he said all that was needed to start the process was the consent of a game's developers and publishers.

Deus Ex on Twitter:
"You asked for this: we are cancelling the "Augment your Pre-Order" program. Read all the details ...

https://www.deusex.com/news/aypo-cancelled

https://steamcommunity.com/games/337000/announcements/detail/66783563363172366


At both Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal, we’ve been listening to everything you’ve had to say about the Augment Your Pre-Order program. When it was first conceived, we wanted the program to give you more choice about what you received in terms of pre-order incentives - because we've seen in the past that when we choose those packages ourselves, and split them across regions, it has caused frustration. We quickly noticed that this approach created even more frustration than before, resulting in a resounding amount of negative feedback.

We’ve spent a lot of time reading through all of your comments, working to understand how we can try to make things right for you. After much thought and reflection, we decided to close down the program and make all of the incentive content available to anyone who pre-orders Deus Ex: Mankind Divided or purchases a Day 1 edition of the game. Additionally, the release date will no longer be changed in accordance with pre-order numbers, and everyone will gain access to the game on February 23rd, 2016.

Your feedback and input is of the utmost importance to us-- as it’s your loyalty and passion for our franchises that gives us the opportunity to continue providing you with great gaming experiences.

To our faithful fans who’ve already pre-ordered: we will be taking care of everything necessary to ensure that all of the changes to the program will be automatically applied to your purchase. Meanwhile, we'd like to thank everybody for their feedback - we know this wouldn't have happened with a game that nobody cared about, and we're just focusing now on delivering a game that lives up to your hopes and expectations.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's head writer "wanted to kill" Adam Jensen (http://www.gamesradar.com/deus-ex-mankind-divideds-lead-writer-wanted-kill-adam-jensen/)


Adam Jensen is the Deus Ex series' first returning lead character, which brings new challenges for the writers (not least, having to canonise an ending). So many challenges, it seems, that Jensen could well have been killed off before Mankind Divided started.

In an interview with GamesRadar last week, executive narrative director, Mary DeMarle explained, "when we started Mankind Divided we knew he was coming back, but when we finished Human Revolution we didn’t know he was coming back!" Executive art director, Jonathan Jacques-Belletête simplifies that a little:

"She wanted to kill him! I thought she was crazy! At first I was like 'All my work! God damn!' It’s so freaking hard to create an iconic hero in this industry, it just kind of happened by magic, so I was like “Mary! What are you doing?”

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will handle endings better than its predecessor (http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/10/12/deus-ex-mankind-divided-will-handle-endings-better-than-its-predecessor/)


While Deus Ex: Human Revolution was well received by critics and fans alike, there were some elements more criticized than others. Aside from the game’s outsourced boss battles, the ending was the area of greatest contention among fans. In short, all the choices the player makes throughout the game are meaningless to the ending, which is determined by which big button the player does or doesn’t press. “Which ending do you want?” the game seemed to ask. That won’t happen with the sequel, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, says the developer.

“I’m not going to say how many endings we have. There’s a few, and obviously the choices in the last map in the game will have a big impact,” said producer Olivier Proulx in an interview with PCGamesN. He added that it’s difficult to build a story that can organically build on a player’s choices, but said that “the decisions you make earlier can affect the last parts of the game,” and that early decisions will impact the final areas of the game.

The realities of game development are such that having an ending for every set of possible choices just isn’t reasonable, but it’s good to see that the team is building off fan criticism, trying to find a better way to handle the divide between player choice and limitations of things like budget and time.

Gamezone Preview: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided brings refinement over revolution (http://www.gamezone.com/previews/preview-deus-ex-mankind-divided-brings-refinement-over-revolution-jwqz)


When you interview a game developer, there are always these kneejerk questions that pop out. They’re the basic bullet points -- how many players does it support, will it have DLC, is it coming to Wii U, how is it pushing the new consoles? -- they’re often softball questions leading up to the more interesting stuff. And usually devs have an equally kneejerk answer to these types of questions. So it was a bit of a surprise when I caught Eidos Montreal executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas off-guard when asking how a new console gen would make Deus Ex better...

First up, here’s Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, executive art director at the studio. We spoke to him about collaborative storytelling, fashion, architecture and graphic design.

The original Deus Ex holds a place of honor among games.

Back in 2000, it was an early example of the narrative shooter genre, something was more concerned with storytelling and character development than with action. There was still plenty of action to be had in Deus Ex, for players who chose to build their character around combat, but the design allowed them to use stealth, hacking, or diplomacy to resolve situations too. The 2011 prequel Deus Ex: Human Revolution used these core principles, but it also introduced players to a new protagonist, Adam Jensen. That star returns in 2016 with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

GamesBeat spoke with game designer Antoine Tisdale about what the future holds for Jensen and how Mankind Divided (which arrives February 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC) will honor its ancestry.

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.

At PAX Australia, PC Gamer had the opportunity to talk with Mary DeMarle, lead writer on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. DeMarle also wrote Human Revolution, and had some interesting insights into how Mankind Divided will expand on the oppressive, dystopian Deus Ex vision. She also discussed how the studio is dealing with the last game's awkward, branching ending.

“I hate ‘side-quests’ and ‘side-missions’ as a term,” says gameplay director, Patrick Fortier, “because I love them so much in gameplay, and I feel it belittles what they actually are. I think the philosophy here was not have a tremendous amount of them - we invested in deeper stuff, and twists in terms of the gameplay.”

DX: Children's Crusade comic coming February 2016 (https://twitter.com/DeusEx/status/671721632407429124)


We're pleased to announce the first issue of the new Deus Ex Universe comic series, entitled 'Children's Crusade'. Here is a quick synposis on it:

With society still reeling from the Aug Incident - the Illuminati orchestrated event which caused augmented individuals to mindlessly attack their 'natural' counterparts - anti-aug sentiment is at an all-time global high. Task Force 29 - an Interpol-funded coalition, created to quash the rising tide of terrorist activity - stands as the world's main defence against total anarchy.

In the city of Prague, where tension is especially high, the team's latest recruit, Adam Jensen, readies for his first mission with the unit. But being augmented himself, how will the former SWAT officer handle himself when faced with the grim reality of the mechanical apartheid?

This comic will be hitting store shelves in February 2016.
Check your local comic book store for availability details in your area, and be sure to give us your feedback on Facebook and Twitter!

In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, you become Adam Jensen, a counter-terrorism agent working for an Interpol unit known as Task Force 29. On the surface, Jensen’s goal is to hunt down terrorists in a world that’s spinning out of control, where mechanically augmented humans live a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society. But what he’s really after are the Illuminati: the men and women who are always pulling the strings...

Square Enix to join CNN for Deus Ex-style human augmentation conference
(http://www.shacknews.com/article/95629/square-enix-to-join-cnn-for-deus-ex-style-human-augmentation-conference)


The one-day conference will brings a variety of experts to three panel discussions related to the intersection of technology and humanity. The panels include:

Is Augmentation a human right? - This panel will address how augmentation can be accessible to everyone on the planet.
Selective vs. Therapeutic - Panelists will discuss who should have the final say on augmentation procedures, doctor or individuals.
The Future of the Far, Far Next - Discussion will center on what medical advances will enable 10 years from now

The conference will end with the presentation of a Code of Ethics on Human Augmentation, drafted by the Human by Design Board comprised of conference speakers. "The Code is meant to engage a deeper conversation around the issues of human augmentation, while reflecting the specific views of the authors, in an effort to help shape the future of the industry," according to the conference web site.

“Human by Design goes beyond bringing to life the key themes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," said Jon Grant, senior product marketing manager at Square Enix. "This conference is a special opportunity for a video game to take pause from the limitless world we play in, and to drive the conversation around what is really happening in the space of human augmentation. Our hope is that the gaming world tunes into the conference and is inspired to get involved as well.”

The conference will also be streamed live on the Deus Ex Twitch channel, as well as CNN's proprietary Launchpad social channel.

With that success comes the pressure of sequels, and often universes feel the strain under the weight of a rapidly-expanding universe that must support multiple properties. One of those most responsible for bearing the weight of Deus Ex's impressively sized and considered worldview is Mary DeMarle, now serving as Lead Writer on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at Eidos Montreal.

We sat down with Mary to discuss the challenges of crafting such a game world, what's narratively new for Mankind Divided, and the thought process behind some of the game's narrative choices.

Artists behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided imagine the world in 2029
(http://www.alphr.com/games/1002907/artists-behind-deus-ex-mankind-divided-imagine-the-world-in-2029)



Ahead of the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the artists at Eidos-Montreal have turned their attention to cities across the globe, as pictured in their particular vision of 2029. As is true to the overall tone of the series, the results are a combination of dramatic techno-utopias and human poverty – as if Howard Roark from Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead had been given free reign, without much care given to how the masses would actually fit.

Also chiming with the game’s attention to biological augmentation, the architecture is sinewy and organic, as if it has spread out of pre-existing buildings like a malignant growth. It isn’t a million miles from Tokyo-based artist AUJIK’s augmented reality video of a surreal, spiraling Osaka.

Eidos Montreal May Adding Multiplayer Support Into ‘Deus Ex’?
(https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/07/09/eidos-montreal-multiplayer-deus-ex/)


“A recent job listing on Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal’s website indicates that the company may be looking to add some kind of multiplayer support into the development engine they use...

The Dawn Engine was most recently used in Eidos’ Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The company revealed the engine back in 2014 saying it will be used as “the cornerstone for all Deus Ex universe projects.” So this possible Dawn Engine project could very well be Deus Ex multiplayer as a separate game, or as an addition to Mankind Divided."

Music Respawn! A Concert Celebrating Montreal-Made Games
(http://wshu.org/post/music-respawn-concert-celebrating-montreal-made-games#stream/0)


Montreal composer Maxime Goulet (Warhammer 40,000) wanted to do something really special to help celebrate the 375th anniversary of his city, which is home to more than 125 video game studios.
He organized a spectacular concert, featuring music exclusively written for games made in Montreal. The concert is Friday, September 29th at the Place des Arts. As Maxime told me, it's a monumental project, but totally worth the effort.

Dina Gilbert will be conducting the 60-member Orchestre Metropolitain, along with a 120-voice choir, performing music from some of the best-known games from Montreal's studios, including Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft): music by Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe, Deus Ex (Eidos) music by Michael McCann, and some small but mighty studios like Polytron, who produced FEZ with music by Disasterpeace.
