Sarif Industries Are Sponsoring Deus Ex 3

Remember to remove before wiping.

Yesterday I got jolly (justifiably) cross about some Facebook-based nonsense “advertising” Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Today I would like to celebrate some really rather excellent nonsense advertising Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The very splendid fake ad below is a gag-free, wonderfully made commercial for Sarif Industries – they behind the beginnings of human augmentation.

Deus Ex 3’s Non-Revolutionary New Trailer

Dual-wielding, eh? Teenagers will be excited.

Much of this footage has been seen before, but I’m going to post it anyway, as I enjoyed the ludicrous bombast of this clip-mash from the ongoing Tokyo Game Show. Japanese dialogue rather than a clutch of Michael Ironsidealikes seems to add to the gravitas, and the Inception-esque music is so achingly dramatic that I eventually broke down in laughter. Not in a negative way, just in an OH THE INTENSITY way.

Deus Ex 3: Jean-François Dugas Interview


Staying calm the face of a new Deus Ex game is tricky. Quintin came back from GamesCom making excited chirping noises, but there’s so much at stake. We must remain steady until we’re certain. We’ll play it and then, only then, we’ll decide whether to get to explode in a ticker-tape parade of giddiness. Of course, this steely focus didn’t stop me getting in touch with the lead designer, Jean-François Dugas, and seeing what he had to say about the game. Fortunately for us he said many things, including revealing the link with Rainbow Six: Vegas, and explaining that most of the game could be played through without killing anyone. Also, most significantly, we can exclusively reveal that there are no greasels in Human Revolution.

Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution Preview

Surely they can see him? Perhaps Deus Ex's legendary AI will be surviving intact.

The rumours are true! Yesterday, clad in black jacket and sunglasses, I rode a train to the Square Enix offices in cyber-Wimbledon to get the latest on Deus Ex 3, no matter the cost. Gaining entrance was challenging- I tried hacking a keypad and going in through the back, with no luck. I’d just started climbing a drainpipe to the roof when a PR came out and asked if I wanted to see Deus Ex 3. I said yes.

Don’t worry if you’re keen to not spoil a single bit of Deus Ex 3 for yourself. The following is entirely spoiler free.

Finally, check back later today for our intricate and edifying preview of the game, written by the handsome, wily, and dexterous Quintin Smith.

Eurogamer: Deus Ex 3 Features An Escalator

I will shoot you with my gun.

Evidently. However, it seems that some embargo has been passed, as Eurogamer has just gone live with three (count ’em) articles about Deus Ex. The first is a general preview sort of thing, the second is an exhaustive series of questions about fan pleasing elements which will or won’t be in the game and the third is a hefty interview with lead designer Jean-François Dugas. This is probably the biggest amount of Deus Ex: Human Revolution info I’ve seen online yet, and almost certainly worth reading. But for those who really are very lazy, my top-level scan-notes follow…

Are These Deus Ex 3 In Game Shots?

No, Quinns, you can't have a raise.

These leaked last night. Frankly, we’re not entirely 100% convinced. Some look like some manner of concept art or render. Some look like either extremely, extremely posed or photo-shop jobs. But at least a couple look pretty feasible. Since these would be the first assets released of the game to illustrate the initial previews, this kind of heightened-reality shot/imagery is pretty much par for the course. Talking personally, I’ll believe them, despite the sense that – as Jim puts it – “It looks like some guy’s photoshop portfolio rather than a megabucks sequel”. Go here to make up your own mind.

Cybr? Deus Ex Human Revolution Trailer

Is your human augmentation a beard-trimmer?

And, as promised earlier in the week, the Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer is on the electric internet. It’s over 3 minutes of world-building, cybernetics, riots, conspiracies, robots and gratuitous wearing of shades. It’s the sort of thing which I may have to go frame-by-frame another time. Until then, watch it below…

Little Arithmetics: Deus Ex 3 Shots

Nooooooo! You gave PC Gamer the exclusive! NOOOOOOOOOOO!

PCG have just put up four screens from the new Deus Ex 3 trailer which will debut on the 4th. As in, Friday. They’re also bragging about 21,500 (Count ’em!) words of preview, which hopefully are all different, and not just Tom Francis cutting and pasting the same paragraph again and again and again. As is his wont. Anyway, go look here or skip below to get my initial impressions.

Renaissance Man: GDC Deus Ex 3 trailer

look at the cool man smoke, cooly

Looks like somebody left the keys in the ignition! And just as well, because even while none of the RPS crew are around you guys still need to know about the new Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution trailer that’s being shown at GDC. The 2 minute cinematic can be found after the jump, but be warned: There’s still no footage of the game proper just yet.

The Year Ahead, Part Three


Once we get past early summer things get a little hazy. We enter a nether-realm of shifting dates and unclear prophecies. By then we’ll also have a whole bunch of games I haven’t previously mentioned show up in the intervening months, stuff that we didn’t have release dates for to place them in our line-up. This final post in our preview attempts to survey them all. To the future! (And check out part one and two if you haven’t seen them already.)

Deus Ex 3 A PC Exclusive? Unlikely.

I'm beginning to suspect a 2010 release is unlikely.

Update: This all seems to be a matter of crossed wires. So far DX3 has only been announced for PC, but there’s no confirmation of exclusivity.

Rumours are circulating that Eidos’s Deus Ex 3 is to be a PC exclusive. This originates from a story on Bit-Tech today in which they (no longer – Ed) comment,

“It has been confirmed that the game is a cyberpunk prequel to the first game though and that it won’t be getting a console release due to the complexity of the game.”

However, they don’t state where this was confirmed, and the peeps on the Eidos forums seem equally surprised. “Only the PC version has been announced so far,” notes ‘René’, one Eidos Montreal’s community types, continuing, “The magazine coverage we had last year were all PC… I dunno where that website is getting its info from!” (Thanks to Phill for the nudge.)

Fresh from the RPS Chatroom: DX3/T4 News

Fuckity-fuck-fuck-fuck
[18:41] bremxjones3: “Square Enix’s Tokyo developers are to work on the cinematics for Eidos Montreal’s upcoming Deus Ex sequel, the studio’s general manager Stephane D’Astous told us.”
[18:41] Ento: aieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
[18:41] swiss-: noooOOoo
[18:41] bremxjones3: Also, Thief
[18:42] swiss-: all, is lost

Develop 09: The Writing Process

The first panel which was something of a disappointment. There’s a tendency for industry panels to turn into a reinstatement of the accepted wisdom (Or, at least, the accepted forward-looking wisdom). Even as someone not actually in development, there was little about the writing process which was new to me. That said, one of the panelists – James Swallow – is a writer on Deus Ex 3, and let out a few minor details on the process, which are worth reiterating.

Deux Ex 3: Inflammatory Hit-Chasing Quote Special


Well, everyone else is doing it, we probably should too.

The forthcoming issue of videogame bible Edge has a large feature on Eidos Montreal’s development of Deus Ex 3. To tease it, Edge Online runs a short story with the headline “Deus Ex was “Kinda Slow” Says Deus Ex 3 Dev” before offering a quote from Lead Designer Jean-Francois Dugas: “There weren’t enough exciting, memorable moments. It was aimed more towards a simulation rather than a game experience.”. Internet explodes.

It is only part of the story. In a literal sense.

Deus Ex 3: It’s Like This

God bless Future Publishing’s bizarre self-cannibalisation. PC Zone might be currently carrying the world exclusive first Deus Ex 3 preview, but CVG has kindly summarised the most important bits for everyone to see. Hooway!

As widely speculated, it’s a prequel, which may mean the arguably over-exposed Denton lineage is left well alone. Or alternatively that its backstory is further filled in, as the protagonist’s forename ‘Adam’ is unlikely to have been one chosen lightly. Here’s the basic plot setup:

You’re cast as average joe Adam Jensen, who works as a private security officer at a technology lab specialising in biomechanical augmentations, a forerunner to the sort of nanotechnology shown in the original Deus Ex. One day the path of his life is unexpectedly altered as a team of black ops commandos break into his company’s HQ, and using a security plan from Jensen’s own hand, a mass slaughter ensues and the conspiracy begins.

RPS Criminal Acts Special: Deus Ex 3 Break-In

Courtesy of Alec Meer's Evil Photoshop Fingers

There’s been some complaints that games writing is lacking hard-hitting investigative journalism. With the news that PC Zone’s forthcoming 200th issue will be the first public unveiling of Deus Ex 3, I saw the opportunity to change all that. I know where PC Zone’s London office is. I’m a skilled veteran of many immersive sims. And I have a trenchcoat and can easily buy a pair of shades.

I can break into PC Zone’s office and steal their assets!

So I gave it a shot.
