Size of a cell
Perhaps the most fundamental change in how you’ll play
Mankind Divided comes from one of its smallest tweaks.
Human Revolution’s energy bar, which governed uses of Jensen’s augmentations, was a pain to manage. The new approach introduces a bar made up of incremental chunks of energy, which eventually recharge if not depleted. The upshot is that weaker powers – such as switching on footstep-dampening pads – can be used frequently, while heavy-hitters require more tactical thinking – not least because there’s now only one means of filling the bar again, the Biocell item, which is relatively rare. That certain items in the world require Biocells to switch on adds a striking element of risk-reward to how you travel around.
