Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a first-person action title with stealth and RPG elements, and a direct sequel to the 2011 Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Players may choose to attack enemies head-on or seek other means such as by using stealth or hacking. Leveling up allows for new augmentations that can assist the player, with such new abilities as using non-lethal projectiles, a silent short-range teleportation, and an invincible shell.
Two years following the events of Human Revolution, augmented citizens have become the outcasts of society. Adam Jensen, now part of the anti-terrorist group named Task Force 29, must stop a group of augmented citizens from committing acts of terrorism, while trying to prevent the passing of the Human Restoration Act.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided received positive reviews with an average score of 84%, praised for its environments and graphics, the wider set of options for completion, but criticized by some for the story's short length.
If you've played Deus Ex: Human Revolution on the PS3, then you should have a good idea of what to expect, as Mankind Divided is arguably the same in terms of difficulty and time required. Many of the important trophies, such as Pacifist and Foxiest Of The Hounds, make a reappearance.
For those unfamiliar with the previous installment, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is challenging but doable, though very dependant on using a guide and walkthrough, as there are numerous collectibles and missable trophies. Two playthroughs are required, one on its hardest mode. An added feature, a mini-game called Breach Mode, can be tough at times.
Expect roughly 40-50 hours, depending on how many playthroughs you do.
The game requires at least two playthroughs: one to unlock the hardest difficulty mode, and another to complete the hardest difficulty mode.
There are numerous missable trophies, so we recommend trying to get as many of them as possible on your first run. This includes finding all the ebooks for the Tablet Collector trophy, completing all the Side Missions, all the augmentations and upgrades for The Jack Of All Augments trophy, and unlocking the many miscellaneous trophies. So be sure to follow one of the walkthroughs, as well as the Deus Ex Mankind Divided trophy guide links under our Links tab in order not to miss anything. The only two trophies you needn't worry about during your first playthrough is Pacifist and Foxiest Of The Hounds, which can be done in your second playthrough - though feel free to go after these as well, if you wish.
After you complete your first playthrough, it's time to start your playthrough on I Never Asked For This, which is the hardest mode of the game. In this mode, the autosave is disabled and you have but one save slot. However, it's possible to backup your save to either a USB drive or to the PlayStation Cloud, or attempt to hit the PS button just before dying to prevent the save from being deleted.
If you haven't already, then this second playthrough is your chance to get both the Pacifist and Foxiest Of The Hounds trophies. Again, follow one of the walkthroughs under our Links tab to find the best and easiest routes. This is also your chance to mop-up anything you missed during your first playthrough.
Finally, all that's left is completing the Breach Mode up to Tier 3 Network. These are a set of mini-levels which require an online connection, as your progress is saved to the server. These can be tough, though are doable with patience and some help from the guides under our Links tab. There are four trophies related to Breach Mode, and if you've been following this roadmap, collecting them all should net you a new Platinum trophy.
