Square Enix is rolling out a bunch of free content for the Deus Ex franchise. Both Square Enix and Eidos Montreal announced that Deus Ex: Breach and the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – VR experience are now available on Steam for free.
The meatier of the two is Deus Ex: Breach, an arcade-style twist on the series formula which casts you as a hacker infiltrating various corporate servers. Breach is a single-player experience, but there are leaderboards.
Although you can pay real world money for Chipsets, which allow you to purchase Booster Packs and premium skins and weapons, each map contains credits you can use to save up for Booster Packs. Booster Packs are random collections of weapons, consumables, difficulty modifiers and customization items. This mode was originally included as part of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and the free-to-play version is identical.
The second one is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – VR Experience. This gives you a chance to take a really good look at four environments, as well as a selection of character models, in virtual reality. Since Eidos Montreal put a lot of work into making Deus Ex: Mankind Divided truly beautiful, it’s nice to have the change to appreciate it up close.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided released in August 2013 as the followup to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Both games take their lead from the original, classic Deus Ex series – cyberpunk FPS RPGs in the immersive sim family.
