Sigh Of Relief: New Deus Ex's Boss Fights Will Be Ghostable
It was the only significant drawback in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
The boss fights got a lot of flak for not allowing stealth-oriented players to succeed. It didn't help that these boss fights were actually developed out-of-studio, which made them feel jarring and decidedly out-of-sync with the rest of the game.
Therefore, it's a big question among series fans: Will we have to deal with the same problems in the recently announced Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Well, thankfully, the answer appears to be "no." Game Director Jean-François Dugas held a Twitter Q&A last week, and answered the question, "would the game be ghostable?" In other words, could you beat the game - including boss fights - without ever being seen. Dugas' answer:
Dugas also confirmed the return of conversation boss battles, so Mankind Divided is quickly shaping up to be a fantastic title. Really, if they got the boss encounters sorted out and the rest of the game is as awesome as Human Revolution, this is a guaranteed masterpiece. Yeah, I said it.
