Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Breach mode is now available as a free-to-play standalone game on Steam. Breach is an arcade-style spinoff of Mankind Divided’s stealth and hacking mechanics.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will receive its first story DLC, System Rift, on September 23rd. The DLC has players reunite with grumpy tech boy Frank Pritchard in an attempt to steal valuable data from a highly secure data vault called the Palisade Blade.

On last week’s Kotaku Splitscreen, Jason and I talked a lot about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Is it more fun the second time around, and is it more rewarding if you force some limitations on yourself? (Answers: yes and yes.) Read my full review here; find the full podcast episode here.
