Deus Ex is “waiting its turn” for a new game

The CEO of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, has spoken out about the future of Deus Ex. At the start of this year, Eurogamer reported that we shouldn't expect a new Deus Ex game anytime soon - and they're right, though we should get one eventually. It simply isn't Deus Ex's turn yet, with the studio first focusing on other projects such as the next Tomb…

Deus Ex – Mankind Divided Delayed Until August

Everything looked rosy when I traveled to Montreal to take a look at Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] earlier this year. The areas I played improved on Human Revolution in every way that matters and Adam Jensen controlled better than ever. All was well and I was looking forward to playing the game in February, right around my birthday. Moments ago, word arrived of…

Deus Ex Mankind Divided’s Ending Is Not A Button Press

Disappointing endings are a staple of Deus Ex games, aren't they? That's fine, though, because almost everything leading up to those final two minutes when you choose which button to press is pretty great. Unsurprisingly, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] will be continuing the series's sequel tradition of openings which kinda ignore which button you picked, but the ending this time will be more…

Become A Weapon: Deus Ex – Mankind Divided

I've played Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] and I liked what I saw. A brief visit to just two areas suggested a more confident and open approach to first-person stealth-action. My preview focused on the level design because that's where most of the improvements seemed to be but Eidos Montreal are also determined to improve player character Adam Jensen. That's already evident in the…

We Can Rebuild It: Deus Ex Revision Out Now

Deus Ex: Revision [official site] is a project that overhauls "the environments and soundtrack" of Ion Storm's classic, and it's out now on Steam. The release has the backing of Deus Ex's current publishers and developers (Square Enix and Eidos Montreal), and is designed to work exclusively with the Steam release of the original.

Deus Ex Is 15, So Here’s Cartoon Denton & Jensen

The Deus Ex series, with its highest of highs and most middling of lows, is 15 years old. Old men, running the world. But not complicated pre-order schemes. They can't run those, it appears. The anniversary is being used to promote upcoming fourth game Mankind Divided, due out in February (thus I will be a man divided between it and XCOM 2), and so we…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Is The Star Wars Original Trilogy Of Game Ceilings

Deus Ex: Human Revolution had the best ceilings of any game ever made. I'm not kidding. I've had screenshots of that game's ceilings as desktop wallpapers and I know others who have done the same. Each one was a sculptural work designed to communicate the cyber renaissance setting. I spoke to gameplay director Patrick Fortier about this at Gamescom and unfortunately it sounds as if…

Flying Swords And Boss Chat-Off: 25 Mins Of Deus Ex 4

I know it's not really called Deus Ex 4 in any shape or form, but 'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' [official site] is long and headlines boxes are short. You get the point though: here's the best part of half an hour of Adam Jensen asking for it in Square's upcoming stealth-or-death sequel. On show: new augmentations, purportedly improved combat, 'social boss fight system', a gun…

You Can Complete Deus Ex Mankind Divided Without Killing Anyone, Even The Bosses

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] can be completed without killing anyone - even the bosses. This as confirmed by the game's Executive Game Director, Jean-François Dugas, in a tweet responding to the question. If you're a fan or familiar with Deus Ex, or particularly Human Revolution, then you'll understand why this is significant news. If not I'll explain below.

Feast Your Eye-Borgs: Deus Ex – Mankind Divided Trailer

The reveal trailer for the new Deus Ex game [official site] shows the full meaning of that subtitle - almost every man in the video ends up divided right down the middle by a stonking great stabby cybernetic implant. Packed with ultraviolence, it's the sort of trailer that tells me absolutely nothing about how I'll actually play the game but I can't deny that it's…

Not-Deus Ex: First Look At New Game’s Engine

Eidos Montreal aren't saying this is a screenshot from the next Deus Ex game, right. Today they announced the shiny new(ish) engine that'll power their next cyberfest, and simply wanted to illustrate that with an image. This here Dawn Engine is based on "a heavily modified version" of Glacier 2, the engine IO Interactive created for Hitman: Absolution. This Dawn demo screenshot is perhaps not…

Golly Gee: BioShock And Deus Ex Sure Look Nice In UE4

Sometimes you want to charge guns, swords, and words a-blazin into a game world and tame the land until Iron Maiden writes a song about you. Other times, you just want to heft your heavy eyelids, sip a light tea, and gently sail through friendly old places made new again. You've got a long day ahead of you, but you don't have to venture out…

Deus Ex: The Fall Trips Onto Steam Today

News of the now: there is a newish Deus Ex game on Steam. Deus Ex: The Fall is a conversion of the mobile game from a few years back, one that did an okay job of squeezing down to be prodded and poked at by commuters. I warn you, despite being a slice of Human Revolution-esque Deus Ex, the launch trailer below makes it look…

Oh Boy: Big Layoffs At Thief Dev Eidos Montreal

So it continues. It's once again preening season in the gaming industry (Start of the year! Financial results! Losses! Fun, fun, fun!), and big studios are tightening their stylishly arrayed goth belts. 2K Czech, EA's Ghost Games, Irrational, Disney Interactive, and Turbine have all taken their licks on the chopping block, and now reports suggest that Thief and Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal is up…

Tablets Goeth Before, But: Deus Ex: The Fall Coming To PC

Before Eidos Montreal tore the internet asunder with their Thief reboot, they made Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It was well liked upon release, but I still feel like it doesn't get enough attention. It did, however, get a recent, somewhat crappy tablet spin-off called The Fall. That spin-off is now coming to PC on March 25th. If it was somewhat crappy, why does that matter?…

Affordable Augment Act – Deus Ex: HR Director’s Cut Priced

The next bright, gold sun in the Deus Ex Universe might be on the way, but that doesn't mean we've seen all Deus Ex: Human Revolution has to offer just yet. There's more stuff - some of which was cut. By directors. But now it's back, and some of it is entirely new. Also, Eidos Montreal is claiming that boss fights are now less awful. Is…

Deus Ex Continuing With ‘Universe,’ New PC Game

Against all odds, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was marvelous. It wasn't quite a perfect continuation of the original's legendary legacy (and those boss fights were utterly atrocious), but it let us dissect a rich and, um, very gold cyberpunk world with a surgeon's belt of clever tech toys. Also vents. Just the right number of vents. But what's next? Well, Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's…

Five Seconds Of Promotion For Deus Ex: The Fall

UPDATE: STAND DOWN. It's an eye-tablet game. Sighs! Oh, video game marketing, you are the worst of all the marketings. Five seconds! What a shame. Most of said five second teaser trailer is a logo. The rest of which is a voice - is that Bob Page or do my ears deceive me? - saying "are we ready to begin?" Oh, I've spoiled it now.…

April 1 Didn’t Ask For This: Deus Ex: Human Defiance

We sat out April Fools' Day entirely on RPS, because we are cheerless fucks who can't abide even the mere idea of other people having a laugh. Also because it was a bank holiday in the UK, but, y'know, principles. The upside of this is that I can safely ignore everything which arrived in my inbox yesterday. The downside is that a couple of genuinely…
