Choices you make in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will change the course of the story

Choice and consequence have always been a key part of the Deus Ex legacy, but the latest instalment, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, is aiming to make those narrative cornerstones more important and influential than ever (even if the director of the original game feels the reveal trailer was a tad ultraviolent.)

In the latest issue of Edge, Mankind Divided's executive narrative director Mary DeMarle reveals the decisions you make in the upcoming dystopian adventure will have persistent and consistent effects on the augmented world around you. "You are Adam Jensen, and it’s your decisions and your choices that are driving the story," comments DeMarle. "One of the things that we’re pushing is that there are many more story-driven choices for you make, and this will enable you to change the course of the story much more than in Human Revolution."

The latest issue of Edge, with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the cover, is out now. Download it here or subscribe to future issues.
