Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has super difficulty mode

July 24, 2016

Some people like their games soft. Others like them hard. And let’s be honest; there’s nothing that can beat a good, hard…video game. And Eidos Montreal feel the same way too.

According to a article over at Gamespot, the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will aim to please players from a wide assortment of skill levels, offering heavily tailored down challenge for those who want to cruise through, right up to a new super difficult mode dubbed I Never Asked for This.

Geared towards the most hardcore of hardcore, I Never Asked for This (recalling the iconic phrase from Deus Ex: Human Revolution) pumps up the difficulty the absolute hardest and nullifies reloads on death. That means you can save, load up your file later, and so on. But if you die your entire save file is flushed and you’ll be forced to start again. One life, one run. That’s all you get.

I Never Asked for This won’t be available from the onset though. Players will need to clear up the game on the default hardest difficulty mode before it becomes accessible, which if going by Human Revolution will be titled something along the lines of Give Me Deus Ex. In this mode AI responsiveness is cranked to the most sensitive, damage feedback hits heavy, and resources are scarce. Complete this and you’ll have the chance to go through Mankind Divided all over again with the perk of never being able to die. That is a perk…right?

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 23.
