The Deus Ex: Mankind Divided season pass makes the game easier with bonus money and upgrades

TODO alt text

Like any major video game release in the 21st century, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has a season pass. But what are you getting for your extra $29.99/£24.99? Square Enix revealed the game's DLC details today, and I gotta say, the in-game items seem like they'll make the game quite a bit easier.

You'll get four free Praxis kits, 1,000 crafting materials, and 5,000 credits stuffed into your wallet - Praxis kits are how you gain new powers, so this essentially means free upgrades, better guns, and the ability to buy more stuff and more expensive gear sooner. No more skulking around in the vents hunting for randomly discarded items for you!

You'll also get your own miniature armory thanks to the Assault Pack and Tactical Pack. The former contains a custom skinned Battle Rifle, the Chaff Augmentation, one pack of regular Battle Rifle ammo, one pack of armor piercing Battle Rifle ammo, 2 Frag Grenades, and 2 EMP Grenades. The latter holds a custom skinned Tranquilizer Rifle, the Micro Assembler Augmentation, one pack of tranquilizer ammo, 3 Smoke Grenades, and 2 Gas Grenades.

If you plan on checking out the new Deus Ex multiplayer mode, Breach, you can take advantage of the five Breach booster packs and 20 Breach chipsets. Booster packs unlock things like new weapons and items, Praxis points, premium ammo, while chipsets are the in-game currency used to purchase them. Again, you're both getting power and an easing of the financial burden that comes with buying more power.

Lastly, the Mankind Divided season pass will include two story missions. "System Rift" will be available later this fall, and "A Criminal Past" will be available in early 2017. No word on what these missions will be about, but if they're anything like the main game, it's safe to say there will be cyborgs, morally-grey conundrums, and lots of triangles.
