Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – New patch officially adds DX12 support, fixes various bugs

EIDOS Montreal and NIXXES have released a new patch for the PC version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This patch adds DX12 support (no longer listed as a beta) and fixes a number of bugs that have been reported.

We will be testing the DX12 mode this weekend in order to find out whether it performs as good as the DX11 mode, so stay tuned for more.

This patch will be auto-downloaded from Steam, and below you can find is complete changelog.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – PC Patch Build 582.1 Changelog:

The following gameplay fixes are in this patch:
  • Players can now also close their in-game menus using the keys to open it: TAB / I / M / O / P / L.
  • Fixed an issue where the diagonal walk speed was too fast, causing Jensen to make noise.
  • Fixed a crash at the shooting range.
  • Fixed an issue where Rucker would not spawn in certain situations.
  • Fixed an issue where the tranquilizer rifle would no longer shoot in certain situations.
  • Fixed an issue in System Rift where the “Heat Sensor” strategy page would not trigger after loading a savegame.
  • ‘Hold E’ to open Mission Objectives/Pocket Secretaries/Strategy Pages/Etc. are mapped to the TAB key by default. This removes the interference with ‘Hold E’ to drag bodies.

  • Added support for DirectX 12.
  • You can toggle DirectX 12 from either the launcher window or from the Display options within the game.
