Details of and screens from what appears to be the next Deus Ex game have hit the Net.

According to a cached version of Russian gaming site Kanobu (via NeoGAF), the game is called Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and it is in development at Square Enix for new-gen consoles and PC.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution protagonist Adam Jensen will return, Prague is one of the game’s locations, and according to the report, enemies will work more collaboratively to hunt you down.

A translation of the leak, as per NeoGAF:

Square Enix has announced the continuation of the famous cyberpunk series Deus Ex. The new part was subtitled Mankind Divided, it will tell us about how the future society was divided into castes augmented and ordinary people. In the middle of the action will be our old friend Adam Jensen - the protagonist of the game.

As in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the events unfold in different parts of the world. For example, in Prague, Czech Republic, Jensen will have to sort things out with Victor Marchenko - an officer in the so-called Coalition of Human augmented (Augmented Rights Coalition).

The choice offers two styles of play: "quiet" passage and open battle. Artificial intelligence of enemies became better than Deus Ex: Human Revolution, play, respectively, will be more difficult. Enemies travel in groups and if suspected something was wrong, summoned colleagues together to explore the dark corners. No more single dummy.

In an open battle Jensen also have hard times: opponents bypass with flank attack of the entire group. Also at your disposal will go more useful implants. Now, Adam can not only see enemies through walls, but also scan them for electronics and ammunition. Hacker will allow the implant to hack turrets and computers at a distance (as in the Watch Dogs).

Do you remember the blade in the hands of Jensen? In Mankind Divided is a lethal weapon will receive an alternative type of attack - Adam learned to shoot a crossbow as a blade. Fans of "noisy" passing too will be satisfied: Jensen blinds enemies smokescreen and with the help of X-ray vision shoots them from an automatic rifle.

For protection from enemy fire can be briefly activated nano-shield and then bullets will bounce off the chest of Adam. In general, mechanical augmentations of Human Revolution remained untouched, but the amount of improvement has increased markedly.

The plot of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided remains a mystery. Developers do not plan to migrate from a previous save of the series - solutions Human Revolution players will not have consequences, and none of the four endings Human Revolution will not canonical.

For this reason, we have to say goodbye to some of their favorite characters, including [spoiler removed]. In one of the missions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Farida plane was shot down on approach to the landing. Life charming pilot was in the hands of players: could repulse enemy offensive and save Malik or throw it to die at the crash site. In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the job we will deliver new pilot - Elias check.

The developers promise that additional work will have an impact on the gameplay. For example, if Adam decides to cross the road bandits in the beginning of the game, then later one of the crime bosses can considerably spoil the blood of the main character, set on a group of bandits in the next story mission.

The leak comes just as Square Enix appears to be running an "interactive reveal" for the game.

At the time of writing, an account called "CantKillProgress" is streaming something called "Project CKP" on Twitch.

In case the stream ends: there's a guy crouching in what appears to be a prison cell. He’s holding a long bar of some sort, and every now and then the camera angle changes. In front of him appears to be a one-way mirror.

A timer is counting down to a vote of some kind.

Back in October 2013, Square Enix revealed plans for Deus Ex: Universe, an “ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games”.

In March 2014, it filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
