It’s official, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is coming to Mac and Linux later this year.
This is really exciting, as Mankind Divided is the follow-up to one of the best games you can play on Mac and one of the most anticipated first-person shooters this year.
The reviews are good so far. Plus, it’s great to learn that Feral Interactive is behind Mankind Divided’s Mac port, as every game they deliver is reliable and smooth.
Just like its predecessor, Mankind Divided is a shooter that can be played using different styles. Missions can be tackled in a myriad of ways, with multiple routes and tactical options open to you, using hacking, stealth or brute force. Heard the complaints that games are too scripted? Deus Ex games are here to save us.
That said, I still go for brute force (as I would with Call of Duty or any of those scripted games)…
The game also has strong RPG elements that let you customize Jensen’s augmentations to suit your play style.
System requirements for both Mac and Linux versions will be announced closer to launch.
2016 is shaping up to be a great year
The year started strong and it already includes extremely good Mac games. But it seems the surprises are far from over.
I can’t say Mankind Divided’s Mac port was a big surprise. Feral Interactive did port the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Life is Strange, another Square Enix game.
However, I wasn’t sure Feral would announce Mankind Divided, DiRT Rally or Mad Max. Those 2 games alone would be great ways to finish the year. But as always, we won’t hear about it until the developer in charge (still a mystery) feels confident enough to make a public announcement.
Are you Deus Ex fan? Were you expecting this one to come to the Mac?
