Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will feature a New Game+ mode, Eidos Montreal has revealed via Twitter.

Expanding on the announcement via a DXTV video blog, Executive Game Director Jean-Francois Dugas and Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier said the mode will show players "even more about all the [game's] maps and secrets".

In the game's predecessor, Human Revolution, hub worlds featured areas only accessible with late-game abilities; it seems Eidos Montreal are doubling down by allowing players to replay with their newfound abilities.

Dugas and Fortier added that gameplay will be more balanced in the sequel, and that weapons can be modded at any time - even during firefights.

Best of all, the pair announced that veteran Aussie actor Vernon Wells will appear in the game, hopefully adding another classic villain to his repertoire, which includes Wez in The Road Warrior and Bennett in Commando.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set for a release in early 2016.
