Deus Ex: The Fall Announced
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a great game that featured a fully realized future, with stylized neo-noir architecture and great music too boot. Oh and the gameplay was awesome too and allowed player to create their own unique experience and play style. Aside from some terribly designed boss battles and multiple choice ending forced down our throats, overall it was a great game. So naturally many people would want a sequel and be re-immersed into this world. And guess what…we’re still not getting it.
A few days ago Eidos released a teaser announcing the game, but no one knew exactly what it was. So while setting the record for shortest time between announcing a game and revealing it, Eidos-Montreal has recently revealed Deus Ex: The Fall for the iPhone and iPad. Here’s the official plot:
DEUS EX: THE FALL is set in 2027– a golden era for science, technology and human augmentation, but also a time of great social divide and global conspiracy. Powerful corporations have seized control from governments and command the drug supply needed by augmented humans to survive. In this chaos Ben Saxon, a former British SAS Mercenary who underwent physical augmentation, is desperate for the truth behind the drug conspiracy. Betrayed by his private military employers, the Tyrants, not only is his own life at risk, but for all augmented humans, time is running out.
The game looks good, though I’ll be curious to see how a game with that much depth plays on the iPad. Square Enix seems to be going full force on the mobile front:
“Smart devices are central to Square Enix’s platform strategy and we approach it with the same attention as our boxed and digital releases. DEUS EX: THE FALL is going to be testament to our commitment in delivering high quality entertainment on mobile and tablet devices,” said Antony Douglas, General Manager of Square Enix Mobile.
Honestly though Square Enix should focus on making better games themselves and let the other companies they own focus on making great games. Deus Ex: The Fall is expected to be released this summer with the pricepoint of $6.99
