Square Enix has teased some exciting news for Tomb Raider ahead of next month sE3.In a "road to E3" blog post, Square details what you can expect this year.During E3 the company will be hosting a Square Enix Presents show, including hands-on demos of all titles at E3, including Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Hitman, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, I Am Setsuna and more.It rounds off the post with a hint of what s to come in subsequent entries, including some exciting Tomb Raider news and details on a few new games that our team has been hard at work on.Rise of the Tomb Raider was a timed-exclusive title on Xbox platforms at the tail-end of last year; could we be about to find out when the game will come to PS4?We don t have much longer to find out.
A new live-action video for Deux Ex: Mankind Divided focuses on how the world has changed since the events of Human Revolution - chiefly, how technology has ruined everything.The video shows how tensions between augmented and non-augmented humans continued to rise after the Augs briefly turned violent in 2027.The widening division culminated with the passing of the Separation Act, creating segregated districts for the augmented folk.Some of it is a bit cheesy but overall it's a well-made video that nicely bridges the gap between the Human Revolution and Mankind Divided, which is set two years later.Check it out below.The game will be launching August 23 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The cinematic short takes us through the golden era of augmentation known as mechanical apartheid , a major event that has taken place in the world of Deus Ex.Plenty has changed since 2011 s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and the trailer hopes to provide us with some valuable insight.In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws.The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial Human Restoration Act , aimed at isolating Augs and keeping them away from Naturals .Acting as the direct sequel to 2011 s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mankind Divided once again has you play as Adam Jensen.The heavily augmented mercenary has access to a ludicrous range of skills and abilities, so you can experiment with many different play styles throughout the expansive RPG.
"Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" is an action role-playing game about a dystopian future in which individuals with mechanical augmentations — "Augs" — are cast out from society.The game doesn't arrive until August, but Square Enix released a live-action trailer on Thursday that sheds light on this world of "mechanical apartheid."And it's absolutely chilling.View As: One PageSlides
The history of live-action video game trailers is littered with hits and misses, but there are definitely a lot more bad than good.With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the horizon, Eidos Montreal has just released a new promo for the game that uses human actors rather than clips from the upcoming title, and it s being called one of the best live-action video game trailers ever made.Instead, it focuses on a couple – one augmented with a bionic limb and the other a 'natural' – as they struggle to keep their relationship together after the biologically modified woman tries to kill her husband during the aug incident from Human Revolution - the broadcast signal sent out by Hugh Darrow causing all augs to go temporarily insane and attack people, resulting in millions of deaths worldwide.While the acting isn t going to win any Oscars, the video isn t the usual cheese-fest that you often find in live-action game trailers.It does an excellent job of showing how society has found itself at the point where naturals and augs are being segregated on the streets, setting the backdrop for the game itself.Players will get to decide how Adam Jensen handles himself in this bleak world when the games is released for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on August 24.
Anyway, this week: Ghost Recon Wildlands crawled out of its hiding place briefly, Deus Ex shows off scantily-clad cyborg ladies, Goat Simulator goes Spaceballs, and some company wants to bring Mirror s Edge to TV.End times, indeedTotal War: Warhammer released this week and it s pretty good.Here s a trailer, if you re interested:So yellowThis week on They Made A Live-Action Trailer, it s our summer beau/belle Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.Fair warning for those at work: There are quite a few augmented ladies walking around in lingerie in this video, though things go sour pretty fast.Well then put on your running shoes because What the hell?We clearly see Mirror s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience, said Endemol Shine Studios President Sharon Hall.
One of the answers is more action, less stealth, and that s what we re going to get when the action role-playing game debuts on the consoles and the PC.I played a level of Mankind Divided and then sat down with Dugas to talk about the experience.If you just go out in the open and try to be a smartass, you ll learn some lessons before you reload your saved game.We had the six-month extension that we announced recently, and then the rest of development.For us, the live-action trailer was a way to represent what we re doing that can speak to everyone.This is where humanity s going.GamesBeat: How big a part of the game is this dilemma, in the levels and the gameplay?Dugas: We have four gameplay pillars.Deus Ex is all about anticipation, trying to be a window on the future.
Artificial augmentation of humans is the core flashpoint between the different factions in the sci-fi game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, coming on August 23.Intel also helped.They re bridging the gap between fiction and reality with technologies such as 3D printing, scanning, bionics, and motion sensing, Ramtohul said.The partners say they want to create affordable 3D-printed bionic hands that could work for people who need them.Of course, in the game, those prosthetics give people superhuman abilities.As the world s most advanced webcam, it is a precise hand tracking solution that allows everyone to experience first-hand the future of augmentations.The first arms are expected to debut in 2017, and they will be shown off at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the big game trade show in Los Angeles next week.
The Deus Ex universe is expanding into mobile, as Square Enix is taking the wraps off of Deus Ex: Go.The announcement from the big Japanese game publisher and its Montreal studio, Square Enix Montreal, shows that the audience of a billion mobile gamers continues to be an important target for Square Enix s ongoing series of Go mobile games, such as Lara Croft: Go and Hitman: Go.Those prior games appealed to hardcore gamers who like the games on the consoles and enjoyed engaging with the same franchises on mobile devices.Those titles had high-end, realistic 3D-animated landscapes with fancy homes and lush jungles.Square Enix revealed a bunch of news today, including a prosthetic arm based on the Deus Ex hero Adam Jensen s arm and hands-on play with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.It has an abstract art style, where the main object is sneaking into places and hacking into computers.The game will still have hacking, take downs, augmentations, and puzzles to solve.There may be some crossover with the story of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.The game is coming this summer to smartphones and tablets.
Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal has announced that it is working alongside Open Bionics and Razer to bring a series of affordable bionic hands to market.The use of bionic limbs is a central theme within the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, whose protagonist, Adam Jensen, is equipped with his own bionic arm.In the game's futuristic setting, humans equipped with these enhancements have found themselves ostracised from the rest of society, and condemned to live as second class citizens.Open Bionics will use 3D printing to bring these limbs to market, and will be providing its blueprints and designs royalty free, allowing consumers to modify and create them at home.Prosthetic limbs, like many other medical devices, are enormously expensive for those without medical insurance or a public health service.If this collaboration can help to bring down their cost, then that can only be a good thing.
Instead, that honor went to a giant table graphic with icons representing all of the games and fiction entries we can expect in the future.Once more unto the cyberpunk BreachSuper.That hacker enters a virtual reality environment with a mission to extract important files.For whatever reason, these hackers break into high-end computer systems by engaging in first-person combat with jagged, polygonal security guards.From the sound of things, Square Enix won't charge players for any additional "support post-launch" content, and the mode will ship "day one on disc" for all Mankind Divided owners.Should smartphone gamers feel fatigued by yet another series Go twist, Square Enix Montreal has one juicy offering under its sleeve: a fully featured puzzle design mode for Deus Ex Go.
Deus Ex's developers don't like to describe the series as science fiction - they think the label makes it sound too farfetched."A lot of what we invented in Human Revolution, the world has actually caught up to that in the last five years," Jonathan Jacques-Belletete, the game's executive art director, tells us."All the touch technology - you're going to notice in Mankind Divided the information pads, the pocket secretaries and all these things," Jacques-Belletete tells us."I'll always tell my guys, even though we want to make futuristic looking buildings or skyscrapers or structures, never invent it from scratch, find something that already exists and get inspired from it," says Jacques-Belletete.However, rather than fiddling with nodes and terminals, the game actually plonks you and your gun into a level that you must navigate to find the data, using stealth and combat to outwit turrets and security cameras as you go."So what we're saying in the world is that the color pink is not real, and the only character who's not real, she has the color pink," explains Jacques-Belletete.
Microsoft has teased a move to a modular, regular update cycle for its gaming consoles going forward, so E3 could be the occasion for a first glimpse at that.In addition, Bethesda is also rumoured to have revived its thought-cancelled sci-fi noir adventure Prey 2.But insiders are pointing at it making a fresh faced return at this years show.Microsoft on the other hand is thought to be preparing a new Dead Rising game which hopefully will address the performance issues that made Dead Rising 3 stumble along like the zombies it featured , while EA could finally give us a glimpse of its third-person Star Wars adventure, which is being helmed by ex-Uncharted scribe Amy Hennig.This is 2016, of course you can... if you can be bothered going without sleep for a few days, anyway.Attack On TitanBatman: A Telltale SeriesBattlefield 1Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare/Modern Warfare RemasteredCivilization VIDead Rising 4Deus Ex: Mankind DividedDishonored 2The Elder Scrolls V: Skrim - Definitive EditionFIFA 17Final Fantasy XVFor HonorForzaGears of War 4Ghost Recon WildlandsHorizon: Zero DawnI Am SetsunaInjustice 2Mafia 3Mass Effect: AndromedaNBA 2K17Persona 5PES 2017Prey 2Shenmue 3South Park and the Fractured But WholeEA's third-person Star Wars game, yet to be titled.
The first screenshot from Deus Ex Go.Square EnixSquare Enix has announced Deus Ex Go, a spin-off puzzle action game coming to smartphones and tablets later this summer.The game casts players as Adam Jensen, also the protagonist of console and PC shooters Human Revolution and this year's Mankind Divided.Hitman Go, released in 2014, presented itself as an ornate board game, tasking players with moving Agent 47 through a small world to his target without being spotted by patrolling guards.It was a tough and challenging puzzle game, requiring precise movement.Ahead of the launch of this year's episodic Hitman for console and PC, we wrote about Hitman Go, describing it as a game depicting the series "at its most cold and calculating".
But that's not to say it's a mere next-gen rehash, because as well as moving the story on the new game also introduces an all-new online arcade mode called Breach.Jensen sits in a helicopter alongside his squad of anti-terrorism soldiers.Triggering Jensen's Smart Vision augment, I'm able to cut through the debris and make my way into the resort.Things go south, though, when my dirty work is discovered and a small army arrives to clean up the mess.One of my favorite room-clearing tricks from Human Revolution, the augment sees Jensen spin in a circle with cinematic style to spare, while unfurling tiny, spherical explosives at his attackers' feet.These elements, as well as time and score ranks, aim to encourage replays, speed-runs, and the sort of friendly competition that will keep fans coming back for more.
More unexpected, however, is the fact we perform the digital archive infiltration as a Ripper, rather than returning protagonist Adam Jensen.Our short time with Breach didn t earn us any bragging rights, but it certainly satisfied our itch for hacking terminals and shooting bad guys.Our brief look at Breach provided a fresh, arcade-like take on cracking code, but our time behind the mechanically enhanced Jensen felt familiar in all the best ways.Of course, the potential rift between Jensen and his peers doesn t stop him from letting the leash off his cybernetic implants.Behind the controls, we re able to utilize the enhanced eyesight to identify a structural weakness and immediately break through it like peanut brittle.Unfortunately, a strengthening sand storm also approaches, making it difficult to discern whether it s the whipping wind or the blades of the bad guys helicopter that s compromising our visibility.
We have been invited by Eidos Montreal for a couple of hours with action RPG Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, released this fall. In an alternate future, people have increasingly begun to modify their bodies and brains with different implants that make them stronger, faster and, yes, better. A two-tier class system prevails, where augmenterade thrown into ghettos, supervised and living in general misery. In one of his trailers for the game launches Eidos Montreal mechanical concept of apartheid - a strong term concern, but who puts his finger right on the world we will move in. The video above is something as unusual as a game trailer of the movie version. They thought the contrary, we did a good thing that drew attention to it. The aim is that through cunning, insidious and techno modified violent combat both the augmenterade terror cells to hunt down the group that controls the puppets from the shadows.

The 'Adam Jensen arm' from Open BionicsVideo game publishers Square Enix and Eidos series have teamed up with a leading bionics company to create prosthetic arms inspired by the Deus Ex series.Open Bionics, which has build Star Wars and Marvel-themed prosthectic limbs for children, is now working on two designs based on the cyberpunk-centric gaming franchise.We wanted something to touch upon high fashion... something that looks very slick and you could be very proud to wear it," said André Vu, Deus Ex's Executive Brand Director via Engadget .Open Bionics says the prosthetic limbs will be available by the end of 2017 for a cost of just $500.The group will show off two working prototypes at E3 and Gamescom, while they continue to work to perfect details like grasping objects.comments powered by Disqus
