Best Xbox One Games #17 – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Developer: Eidos Montreal
Synopsis: Two years after the events of Human Revolution, in which those with limbs and body parts augmented with technological advances started to undergo murderous bouts of rage, Adam Jensen has found himself in a new line of work. Instead of working as high-end private security for Serif Industries, he now takes down groups of augmented terrorists for Interpol. It’s the paying job cover for his true intentions; to expose Illuminati for what it is and to take them down altogether.
The player has a number of new tools and tricks at their disposal, with a gameplay style that suits those who like to go in guns blazing, those who like to slink away in the shadows without being seen, in addition to acting in both a lethal and non-lethal manner.
Why it’s one of the 50 best Xbox One games: Eidos Montreal stumbled out of the gate this generation with Thief but have quickly recovered to provide an excellent second part of an ongoing Deus Ex narrative. For all the public criticism concerning the way they have tackled the struggle between humanity and technology, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided expands upon the morality of playing God with those hoping to advance humanity in the hopes of aiding those who need help.
This latest game offers an updated look into the possible cyberpunk future that awaits us while providing a new look into a universe that begs for our attention.
