Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is not a shooter. Instead, it’s a role-playing game where you can shoot everything. It’s a surprisingly profound experience – one that has a multitude of options available, from how the game is played, to the personal choices you make along the way.
Search Everything – Deus Ex
It can take a while to realize just how much stuff is in Mankind Divided, and almost all of the best rewards are found by looting drawers, safes, and locked compartments.
There can be weapons or accessories like silencers, Praxis kits to give you some bonus upgrade points, credits to buy new gear, or precious items like Biocells and Hypoderms to keep you alive survive, and function. It’s the best way to stock up on goods, otherwise, you could find yourself in a pinch.
Check Smart Vision
Mankind Divided absolutely has a lot of routes through missions. You can hack terminals, climb into vents, pass certain checkpoints, and discover secret passages through different rooms.
The best way to figure all of this out is to invest in a smart vision booster that not only lets you see enemies through walls, keeping you alert if you’re about to get caught, but also alerts you about all the opportunities at your disposal at any given time.
Upgrade Hacking – Deus Ex
The Mankind Divided hack mini-game isn’t the most thrilling you’ll play this year, but doing it opens up countless opportunities.
By investing in upgrades to enhance the hack, you will not only be able to unlock doors and containers that can hold valuable goods, but you will also be able to control the camera and manipulate the robot and drones, which will give you the upper hand in battle.
Mankind Divided is a classic – it has an autosave feature, but it’s rare and won’t do you any good while on the quest. To alleviate any frustration you might experience if you’re playing with pure stealth or if you get into a gunfight and end up dead, save often.
More importantly, keep multiple saves. The only thing is that you will realize you missed something or you want to try something in a different way. Keep that option open for you at all times, and have loads of saves to reload at any time.
Control Scheme – Deus Ex
The controls in Mankind Divided take a while to get used to. There is a huge amount of content at any given time – your weapons, your powers, the insurance system, and more. To get the best experience for you, you should review the options and experiment with the game’s preset controls.
Mankind Divided’s default is a solid win for anyone who’s ever used a standard shooter with an iron scope, but if you want to get out of stealth mode quickly and quietly, it’s fine, it might be worth changing to the controls from Human Revolution.
CASIE is basically the Deus Ex science word for social upgrades. Buy this early and you’ll get access to more chat options in certain cases. It complements the interactions you have with characters throughout the game and – without spoilers – is sure to get you out of a few sticky spots.
