Deus Ex: Mankind Divided + VR

Blog Post created by virgo4u on Feb 2, 2017

Let me start by saying that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a beautiful, rich, futuristic game that allows you to play through the eyes of Adam Jensen.  Adam takes advantage of two different styles of game play, you can either go in stealthy or be loud and proud, shooting up the place.  I'm not particularly a stealthy person so going in guns-a-blazing was my main expertise through the campaign.

I particularly like the many augmentations acquired throughout the game.   These augments bring a "talent-tree" type skill base that the player can freely choose to enhance their particular play style.  Need some help manipulating conversations or maybe need to hack a computer faster? Adam has it covered.  Acquiring and upgrading these augments give the game that RPG feeling that I love.


In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the plot is about finding out who are the gold-masked augmented mercenaries, terrorists, and the Illuminati. The story helps with multiple choices that allow me to decide what I want to happen throughout the game.  Multiple choice games are always interesting, due to the different paths you can take with differing consequences.  So, I can play through the game again, but this time, a more stealthy version of the story.


Steam now also has a virtual reality experience for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This virtual experience takes a look at various locations that were part of the main story through the eyes of Adam.  You can move around freely and appreciate the amount of detail each area has to offer. Some of these areas are Dubai, Golem City, and Adam’s apartment with that "BIG" TV. I am keen to see how much farther the developers will take this VR experience and shape it into the hacking and shooting experience that is the campaign.
