An Augmented Dimension

Image from
After a Twitch stream teaser, a trademark and a leak, the next Deus Ex game, Mankind Divided, was announced by GameInformer, who seem to announce a new game every month. Mankind Divided is set two years after the events of Human Revolution, in which the Illuminati have hacked every augmented human to attack whoever is near them (Keep your tin foil hats on!). This had led to the segregation of humans and transhumans, and returning protagonist Adam Jensen leads a task force designed to stop cyberterrorists, with new abilities such as the ability to 'fire off his nano blade into the distance, remote hack electronic objects, and surround himself with a near-indestructible nanoshield.' It'll be coming out on PS4, Xbox One and PC, but that's all we know.

Or is it? This publicity train kept on rolling, as a new cinematic trailer was revealed on the Playstation blog too. It doesn't reveal much other than Adam Jensen being a badass and hacking everything (Shame he's not doing the safety dance)

In other leaked-then-announced game news, the long-touted LEGO Dimensions (A LEGO version of Skylanders) was leaked on Reddit today, while some early Toys-r-Us listing seemed to confirm it. LEGO Dimensions was later confirmed in a trailer that it's coming to current-gen and last-gen home consoles on September 29th this year. An Amazon listing confirmed that there will be 13 minifigure packs available, with 5 themes: LEGO Movie, Ninjago, Lord of the Rings, DC and Wizard of Oz, strangely. However, these packs also contain a vehicle, so there's an element of value, added to the fact that they are LEGO figures that you can use, if you're into it. The Starter Pack will contain the portal, Batman, Gandalf, Wyldstyle and a Batmobile, plus some bricks. One to watch.

Are you guys looking forward to any of these games? Tell us in the comments!
