Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the highly anticipated sequel to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, set in not too distant future where human augmentation and robot prosthetic limbs are common sights. The game is a cyber-punk RPG, where players are encouraged to explore levels and decide on their own way to play the game rather than sticking to a linear play through style.
The Deus Ex series has been around since the year 2000 with the original game (set after the events of both Human Revolution and Mankind Divided), the series made its mark on the public and is still regarded as one of the best games ever made by many. The series is now on its fourth console release title, and the second outing as Adam Jensen. The series has been praised for its level of customisation through skill trees and the sheer choice players are given to tackle a great number of objectives. Choices have consequences and players are given plenty of side missions to help gain extra experience and create their own version of the character.
Deus Ex has always been a focal point for games that push choices and make you think, with the up coming Mankind Divided the question might just mirrors social justice issues that are common in real life.
The question is something that Square Enix and Eidos have had to deal with in the build up the games release (which is at the end of this month). The issues of someone being objectified in society by the way they look or who they are, in Deus Ex the social issue is not about race, it is about human augmentation.

Last week it was announced from Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be delayed until August 2016. This announcement comes to many as a sad and heart-breaking announcement; I on the other hand can only see this as a great and wonderful thing. It will allow the anticipation to build once again for the, while letting the beautiful and in depth world flourish and develop.
