Square Enix’s Deus Ex franchise is known for its gritty sci-fi atmosphere and visuals, putting players in a future dystopian universe. While there are no plans to bring the video game into virtual reality (VR) at present, Eidos Montreal has created something of a teaser with an immersive experience showcasing some AAA visuals.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – VR Experience isn’t a piece of interactive content, rather a showreel of what could be achieved in future VR titles. Supporting OCulus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR head-mounted displays (HMDs), the experience allows you to explore four environments from the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided video game. These range from Dubai and Golem City to lead character Adam Jensen’s apartment, all recreated to be as visually stunning as possible in VR.
Alongside the environments, the VR experience features a selection of 3D models of the main characters and NPCs from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, all created using the studios’ Dawn Engine.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – VR Experience may not be the VR version fans of the franchise want – being non-interactive – but it certainly shows that Eidos Montreal are dabbling with the technology, and who knows, there could eventually be a Deus EX VR in the future.
