Developer Nixxes Software has warned fans that its previous announcement of DirectX 12 support in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was a little premature, and that support for Microsoft’s latest API won’t be available at launch.
Following the release of official system requirements for the game earlier this month, a spokesperson for Nixxess Software — the company handling the Windows port of the title, which will also launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 — has warned that DirectX 12 support will not be available on day one. ‘The Deus Ex franchise originated on PC, and we’re passionate about continuing to provide the best experience possible to our long-time fans and players on the PC,‘ the statement reads. ‘Contrary to our previous announcement, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is shipping on August 23rd, will unfortunately not support DirectX 12 at launch. We have some extra work and optimisations to do for DX12, and we need more time to ensure we deliver a compelling experience.‘
According to Nixxes Software, the DirectX 12 support will be added in a post-launch patch. ‘Our teams are working hard to complete the final push required here though,‘ the message concludes, ‘and we expect to release DX12 support on the week of September 5th! We thank you for your patience, passion, and support.‘
The mild push-back on DirectX 12 support follows a somewhat troubled development cycle for the game which has seen publisher Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal delay its launch by six months and cancel a controversial pre-order bonus programme critics had likened to a pyramid selling scheme.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launches on the August 23 for Windows PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided — DX12 patch is now available, performs poorly on NVIDIA’s hardware
John Papadopoulos 76 Comments
As promised, EIDOS Montreal and NIXXES released today the DX12 patch for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Unfortunately, though, it appears that we’ve got ourselves another title that performs – at least on NVIDIA’s hardware – worse in DX12 than in DX11.
Before continuing, let us tell you that NVIDIA did an amazing job with its DX11 drivers for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. And while this is labelled as a preview build, it does not really excuse the awful performance we’re experiencing in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided under the DX12 API.
First things first, the benchmark tool seems to be running similarly in both DX11 and DX12 (using our custom graphics settings).
However, things went downhill once we visited the game’s city hubs. As we can see, there is a significant performance hit under DX12 (we’re talking about a 30fps decrease in some cases).
What’s really interesting here is that the CPU is not the culprit for DX12’s poor performance. We tried simulating a quad-core and our performance was similar to our hexa-core system under DX12.
As we’ve already said, this initial DX12 release is labelled as a preview build, however things are not looking good for NVIDIA users. In fact, this situation reminded us of Total War: WARHAMMER; a game that also performed poorly under DX12 on NVIDIA’s hardware.
EIDOS Montreal and NIXXES noted that there is a known bug that causes some very high end cards to regress relative to DirectX 11. According to them, this bug is being addressed by the development team, so it will be interesting to see whether the culprit of this underwhelming DX12 performance is this bug.
For the time being, we strongly suggest NVIDIA owners avoiding DX12 at all costs.
Oh, and here are the release notes for this latest update for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
The following fixes are in this patch:
– Fixed a freeze that happened for some players during the subway loading scene.
– Fix for issue where massive stalls would occur in Prague.
– Fixed issue where players could no longer save when they ran out of Steam Cloud space. (When the player runs out of space, the oldest saves will now be removed from the Steam Cloud. They will NOT be deleted and are still available from disk. They will remain present in your in-game ‘load game’ list.
– Improved shadow behaviour in the distance when Contact Hardening Shadows is turned on.
– Fixed issue where tutorial messages could stay/re-appear on-screen after completing the tutorial.
– Fixed an issue where players could lose input control when hacking certain computers.
– Fixed various UI issues.
Release of DirectX 12 support in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
As of today, users are also able to utilize the awaited DirectX 12 Graphics API. To activate this you are required to do the following:
- Within your Steam Library, right-click on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
- Select ‘properties’ from the context menu and navigate to the Beta tab.
- From the dropdown menu, select dx12_preview then close the window.
After the game has downloaded the DirectX 12 supported build you can then toggle DirectX 12 from either the launcher window or from the Display options within the game.
Note that DirectX 12 requires a restart of the game if (de-)activated from within a running Deus Ex: Mankind Divided game session.

The events of the futuristic stealth action Deus Ex: Mankind Divided take place in an alternate future where humanity is divided into 2 camps. On the one hand are ordinary people, on the other — people who have resorted to mechanical augmentations to improve their bodies and acquire new superhuman abilities. The latter were rejected by the former and turned into outcasts, forced to survive under the yoke of the «pure».
The hero of the game is a certain Adam Jensen — a man whose body half consists of perfect prostheses and modules. In the story, the protagonist joins the resistance movement and becomes a secret agent whose task is to get as close as possible to the enemy in the face of a mega-corporation and uncover an impressive worldwide conspiracy.
The game is positioned as a stealth action game, conceptually focused on covert passage. However, the player is not forbidden to carry out missions, so to speak, ahead, that is, in the open. Compared to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the artificial intelligence of opponents in Mankind Divided has become much better, and the protagonist’s arsenal has been replenished with new features, in particular, with the help of a special module, Jensen can scan opponents and hack electronics from a distance.
True connoisseurs of covert passage run the risk of not getting a flip-out nanoblade and a set of under-skin armor «Titan». These two upgrades were created specifically for open battles. Implants allow the player to make a fighter out of Adam Jensen according to their style of passing. All the same fans of the correct passage will be able to put on the body of the protagonist the Tesla shock gun built into the hand, with which, after a series of improvements, you can disable up to four opponents.
