Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach is an innovative game mode, included for free with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This new take on the game offers, for the very first time, an arcade approach on the gameplay of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, providing players with a connected puzzle shooter experience. As a Ripper, a hacker in the year 2029, your objective is to obtain and sell highly classified corporate data by infiltrating some of the world’s most secure servers, using the funds you acquire to upgrade both your skills and arsenal.
As you play, the rewards you earn, including XP, Credits, and Booster Packs, will allow you to face the increasing difficulty of the game. Challenge yourself, your friends, and people from around the world in the ultimate Deus Ex arcade twist. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach is a live game mode, introducing new challenges and features by rolling out updates on a regular basis.
Become a Ripper. Extract the Data, Escape the Server, Expose the Truth.
In Breach, you are controlling a software avatar, a Ripper with upgradable Powers. New Weapons can be acquired through booster packs. Old ones can be upgraded by dismantling unwanted weapons into parts. Use Praxis Points you’ve earned from successful raids or booster packs to unlock new Augmentations (some of them being unique to the Breach mode) in your Tech Tree and equip your avatar before entering a level.
Be warned! Once you are in, you are trapped until you reach your objective and escape the server. So choose your loadout strategically before engaging, since both inventory and memory space for your augmentations are limited.
In the Palisade, your enemy is the AI operating each corporation’s servers. The Sentinels, Drones, Sentries, Turrets, and powerful Prime Units are all programmed to protect the data, and will quickly turn hostile against any intruder they discover in the system. As in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, you will decide how to approach any situation, using stealth, combat, or any combination of both.
Servers for each corporation offer different challenges and will increase in difficulty as you get further into the network. More importantly, the AI defending the system will adapt to your techniques... Don’t forget: you can only extract the data by escaping the server with it.
While playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Breach, in addition to retrieving information to expose each corporation, you will have to investigate and uncover conspiracies. Find evidence in specific levels reached through the Darknet nodes, track the progress of your investigation on the Darknet Timeline, and engage in conversations with Agents to convince them to give you some hints.
