Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be free to keep from Epic Games Store next week

Along with puzzle game The Bridge.

With reports that Embracer Group allegedly cancelled an upcoming Deus Ex game, hopes of a return to the series have been fading. The industry is in a sad state now, so if you want to cheer yourself up with a dose of Adam Jensen, you can pick up Mankind Divided for free next week.

That’s one of the titles being given away over on Epic Games Store. The other is an indie puzzle from 2013 called The Bridge. Both will be available between March 14 and March 21. They will be replacing the sci-fi combat game Astro Duel 2.

While it may not be the most lauded Deus Ex entry out there, it’s still a nice little freebie for those who have yet to play it.

You can’t resist all that sincere moping

Things are so up in the air for Eidos-Montreal’s celebrated series. With voice actor Elias Toufexis being told to stop talking so much about Adam Jensen, there’s definitely a sense that we won’t ever get to see a follow-up to Mankind Divided.

It’s a story we’re all getting sick of hearing, no doubt. The video game industry is in dire straits at the moment, as huge publishers issue redundancies and studio closures. Eidos was one of those recently, which effectively put a nail in the Deus Ex coffin. Honestly, it’s hard to keep up with the amount of job losses that have occurred these past 12 months or so.

While we won’t likely get to see a new Deus Ex entry, maybe take some comfort in being able to get a copy of the latest installment for free. Sorry, didn’t mean to bring the mood down there.
