Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Adds PS4 Pro and HDR Support
The latest patch for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided also fixes bugs and adds Breach mode content.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is now ready to take advantage of the PS4 Pro when it releases this November, developer Eidos Interactive announced on the Square Enix forums. The latest patch adds support for the upgraded PS4, in addition to HDR for all PS4 systems and the Xbox One S.
"[Mankind Divided] will support 4K resolution and graphic improvements on PS4 Pro," the official Deus Ex Twitter account confirmed.
In addition to the new support, the patch adds new content and features to the game's Breach mode. Players now have access to a new Overworld map, the new Santeau Corporation, and new skins for the Ripper weapon, which can be customized to change its appearance.
The patch also fixes bugs on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The console version of the game see crashes, freeze states, and permanent flashbang and typhoon effects rectified. Additionally, if you saved the game while enemies were searching for you before downloading the day one patch and then updated to it, everyone would continue looking for you forever on that specific save file. This has now been fixed.
The PC version sees two bug fixes. The game should no longer crash when loading a save file, and players shouldn't get stuck on the side mission 1011000 any longer. There are also some DX12-specific changes, which are only applicable to users that are playing the DX12 preview beta branch on Steam. Load times and performance stability have both been improved, while an issue that could cause a DXGI_DEVICE_HUNG error has been fixed.
You can see the full list of notes below.
