After a bumpy launch and some updates, Square Enix is still working to solve the problems affecting Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on PC.
The community manager of Eidos Montreal, Poitcha, confirmed on Reddit that the patch that will enable support for DirectX 12 in Deus Ex Mankind Divided will be published this week. The update was previously expected to come on September 5. Now, the PC version of Deus Ex: Divided Mankind has finally received an update that supports DirectX 12 that was introduced in the game.
Recently, the company released an update that adds support for DirectX 12 and focuses on solving “critical problems reported in recent weeks.”
According to Square Enix, the crashes have been repaired and there are also improvements in the user interface. To test the new version, follow these steps:
1. In the Steam library right click on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
2. Select “Properties” and see the Beta tab
3. Activate Dx12_preview and close the window
“After the game has downloaded the build that supports DirectX 12, you can operate DirectX 12 from the launch window or from the options screen. Note that the DirectX 12 requires a restart of the game if disabled during an active session,” it was said in the patch notes. The update also fixes some minor problems.
Recall that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is already available for Windows PC, Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One.
