That’s not all either as Elias Toufexis, the voice actor of Adam Jensen and other guests discuss Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at a panel event and give out details on the new DLC that will feature the return of a mysterious character who will be coming back to the series.
The director of Final Fantasy XV, Hajime Tabata, will be hosting a panel for the game regarding the gameplay and battle mechanics. Hiroki Chiba, the director of World of Final Fantasy will also be giving details on the chibi-style title.
