Deus Ex: The Fall

Not A Human Revolution Sequel

Earlier this week, Square Enix and Eidos Montréal teased a new title called Deus Ex: The Fall. Many had hoped that this would be a sequel to 2011's fantastic Human Revolution coming to consoles and PC. That is not the case.

Eidos announced today that Deus Ex: The Fall is coming to iOS devices. It's a sequel to the novel Icarus Effect and stars a former mercenary Ben Saxon. He has been betrayed by his employers and is on the trail of a conspiracy.

The setting is 2027, the same year as Human Revolution. The visuals have the same grimy urban feel with the familiar golden hue overlaid. 

As for the gameplay, according to executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas, "It was really important for us to make the gameplay as simple as possible." The title features new augmentations, and a user interface that allows players to move icons around the HUD.

Square Enix recently stated it would be focusing more on mobile titles. It seems that those plans are already in motion. Deus Ex: The Fall will be at E3 next week in the Square Enix booth and available for purchase later this summer for $6.99.

  • I Never Asked For This...

  • Disappointed.

  • I know I'm in a minority here, but I use my phone as a phone, and my game console for games.

    So, if you're going to make a game, release it on a game console. I find it hard to believe it's impossible to have this ported over to PSN/XBLA, for instance.

    That and, their ambition to follow up a wonderful, choice-filled open world title is a cramped iOS game? Dropping the ball big time.

    I HATE YOU SQUENIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I think square enix is actually ran by chimpanzees...

    That's the only explanation for this

  • I used to hate the idea of mobile gaming. Now I play quite a bit of mobile games, with one catch. I only like puzzle games on my phone and i-pad. Don't know why, I don't like to play those on a big tv.  I still love playing the major titles on console only, and absolutely hate this trend of putting big titles on mobile devices.  Cross play with Vita or the WiiU gamepad doesn't bother me at all though. I really wanted a new Deus Ex too! Can't wait to play the next Tomb Raider on my phone...

  • Oh boy, here comes the angry mob of gamers. *FACEPALM*

  • You guys know there are reasons why devs go mobile, and that is to save money and try to earn some. After millions in losses of square enix, the company is trying to earn money in a simple way. I don't think they can afford to create a console game right now. Just give them time. They will create better games, but for now, let them just find their way....
  • Ah **** *** **** for ***** sake, ****.


  • How incredibly, incredibly disappointing. Square Enix should really get their priorities straightened out, for they just seem to be mucking everything up right now.

  • What a terrible disappointment. Who even buys this stuff?

  • I don't even play Deus Ex and I find this announcement severely disappointing.

  • Square Enix, Eidos Montreal. *** you.

  • Ugh mobile.

  • I totally called it.

  • NOOOOOO and YEEEEES , but mostly NOOOOO.

  • Must say, this is an EPIC Fail to me.

  • That video makes me want to cry! I loved HR, the environments, the hacking, the sounds, all of it.  This crap looks like it has all of the familiar stuff, except dumbed down and tossed on mobile devices! I want to get lost in the world of Deus Ex when I play. That means comfortable on my couch, lights off big HDTV experience with the sound up. I absolutely will not play this cheap piece of crap! Do your own franchises the justice they deserve SE! You are the reason for your failings.

  • This is garbage...I want another console title not this ***!

  • *Facepalm*
