Details for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's first DLC emerge


Who is on first?

Square Enix has shared some information about the first Deus Ex: Mankind Divided story add-on. Titled "System Rift," the DLC pack will see the return of Frank Pritchard and will have him team up with Adam Jensen to hack into the Santeau Group.

"In System Rift you will re-unite with Frank Pritchard, Adam's friend and former colleague at Sarif Industries, and assist him in hunting down information on the mysterious Santeau Group," the publisher explains in a press release.

"Desperate to get more information, Pritchard targets one of the most secure data banks ever created--the Palisade Blade. In agreeing to help, Adam may also be able to uncover hints as to who the illuminati really are."

This first story pack will be available on September 23 for all formats (PC, PS4 and Xbox One). No prices for the US have been listed, but the original article mentions it is 10 cents more on Xbox One. I can't fathom why, but we all know a pretty good response to that; something about never asking for or not wanting this.

The second story pack will be titled "A Criminal Past." Further information wasn't given, other than it will release in early 2017. The other bits of DLC from the season pass should already be available to buyers.

I attended a panel at PAX East this past year that had a few of the voice actors from Mankind Divided talking about their time working on the game. Elias Toufexis, the voice actor for Adam Jensen, had mentioned that he wasn't sure if Pritchard would be returning in the main game. I didn't even think that DLC would be the answer.

I suppose that is fine and all, but I'm not sure I like the idea of gating major characters behind a paywell. This would be easier to accept if Mankind Divided didn't suddenly end with little closure. Guess we'll just have to wait for that third Jensen game to get all the loose ends tied up.
