DEUS EX: The Fall announced For iPhone and iPad

Deus Ex The FallThe Deus Ex franchise is one of my favourite gaming pass-times. The original was a superb conspiracy game with great RPG and shooter elements and although Invisible War lost it’s way slightly it was enjoyable enough. Fast forward to 2011 and we were offered the phenomenal Human Revolution prequel and the novel which led into that game, Icarus Falls by James Swallow. Today, Square Enix have announced their next game in the franchise: The Fall Which is a direct sequel to the novel. Read on for more.

The game will be released on iPhone and iPad through iTunes … I can only hope this will be followed by a Windows 8 version as I have a tablet and phone with that OS and frankly, I want to play this game. There is a preview video available which shows two of the creative team demo-ing the control system and I have to say, the game, it’s controls and the mechanics seem to work really well. The graphics look good enough to be of console level at least. Here’s the official low-down:

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 follows the main character from the aforementioned novel (which I reviewed back in 2011) and introduces new augmentations to the Deus Ex game series. It seems the game will be following the success of The Walking Dead, being released in installments. The first will be available this summer, priced at $6.99/£4.99/5.99€.

As I said, I’m really looking forward to this. But I don’t have Apple tech, so please get on with porting to Windows 8 and Android!
