Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has a release date

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch globally on February 23, 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC, publisher Square Enix and developer Eidos-Montréal have announced.

Mankind Divided is set in 2029 in the Czech Republic capital Prague, two years after the events of Human Revolution. Adam Jensen returns as the protagonist, working with an international coalition to halt a rising tide of terrorist attacks, while the public rallies against those with augmentations.

Eidos-Montréal previously announced that stealth is a viable tactic all the way through the game including the boss fights, and that there will be a New Game+ mode.

The game’s PC port will be handled by Nixxes Software, which has previously worked on ports for Square Enix games including Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution, Thief, and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

Today, Square Enix also revealed a pre-order scheme wherein increasing tiers of bonuses will be unlocked as more copies of the game are reserved. You can see the scheme on the official pre-order site.

DA: Inquisition gets epilogue DLC

DA: Inquisition gets epilogue DLC

The final piece of DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition is an epilogue that takes place two years after the main game.

According to BioWare, Trespasser explores what it's like to be a world-saving organisation when the world no longer needs saving. It's a chance to meet and talk with old friends, to uncover a new threat, and ultimately decide the fate of the Inquisition you worked so hard to build. It might just contain hints about the future of Thedas, too.

Trespasser is the third piece of story DLC BioWare has added to Inquisition, the other two being Jaws of Hakkon and The Descent. It will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on September 9.

BioWare also announced a patch targeting Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC that includes a couple of treats in addition to the usual fixes.

GTA V graphical mod makes a pretty game prettier

A new, unreleased graphical mod for Grand Theft Auto V threatens to unseat reigning graphical champ iCEnhancer.

Called Toddyhancer and developed by Martin Bergman, the mod uses "Reshade shaders, ENB series, simple tweaks, and some tonemapping" to make Los Santos look even prettier than it used to.

According to Bergman's FAQ, the enhanced graphics cut 10-30fps off performance in his testing experience.

Metal Gear Solid 5 microtransactions still under question

Questions still remain about the presence of microtransactions in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, despite some clarification from Konami.

The issue came up when Gamespot reported that MGS5's Forward Operating Base (FOB) multiplayer mode would cost MB Coins, an in-game currency purchased with real money.

FOB allows players to build a base and defend it against – or invade – other players online.
