Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the ARG Square Enix has been teasing, according to a leak from a Russian website. The game was later confirmed as being in development when Game Informer announced it was featured in the May issue.
While everyone under the sun pretty much decided the ARG was the next Deus Ex, Kanobu.ru went one further and posted some screenshots of the upcoming PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title along with a few interesting nuggets.
NeoGAF got a hold of the information and has posted cache links in case the page gets pulled.
According to Kanobu, the plot of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is still being kept under wraps, but saved data from Deus Ex: Human Revolution will not transfer over as “none of the four endings Human Revolution” will be canonical in the next title.
Like the previous title, actions taken by players will have an impact on the gameplay later on.
The game was also revealed to be the cover of the May issue of Game Informer.
According to the magazine the game is set 2029 two years after the events of Human Revolution
Adam Jensen returns and joins forces with an Interpol-funded task force aiming to hunt down and capture augmented terrorists in a world that now hates and fears transhumans. Jensen has a new suite of augmentations that allow him to cleverly navigate stealth, combat, and social interactions, but how Jensen chooses to solve every problem is entirely up to you.
The magazine spent two days in Eidos-Montreal’s studio talking with the team about the title, and the article will “go in depth on some of Jensen’s new augmentations that help improve the stealth and combat systems,” one of which is the ability to “remote hack electronic objects.”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is currently without a release date.
