What's Happening

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

See A Sneaky CyberPete In Action

As we learned in the game's last developer diary, Deus Ex: Human Revolution poses a few serious philosophical questions. When a person's limbs and organs can be replaced and augmented on a whim, where does one's humanity begin and end? What responsibility does science have in these situations? If something can be done, does it mean that it should be done? Those kinds of head-scratchers extend to gameplay, as well. As a new video shows, players will have to grapple with the age-old question of whether to shoot bad guys in the face or back of the head.

This episode is all about stealth, and if you've played any games with sneaking elements in the past you should know what to expect. Players who want to take a quieter approach to combat can expect to see a lot of crouching and rolling in their future, as well as some fancy-schmancy active camoflage. Enemies also respond to sounds, so it's best to use silent weapons such as crossbows if you'd like to maintain your low profile.

Check out some of these tactics and more in the trailer below. And, as always, watch for the game on August 23 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

  • The trailer was great. Might pick this up.
  • Mod
    I'm still not sure how I feel about this game. On one hand I have to be a little more picky since I have a slew of games to purchase lol. And on the other I really liked the stealth element in this video. It reminded me of MGS. Wish I could get my hands on a demo. I'd like to see how the controls feel.
  • I actually have a stealth guide on this site for the first mission.

  • The trailer is good, I might take this game

  • I really love stealth games, but unfortunately I have never played the deus ex series, yet after watching the trailers for this, I have since pre-ordered it :D

  • Can't wait to play this, I like how you can mix up gameplay to match your preferences. This will be awesome!

  • I'm very excited for this one, the first PC review is up with a 94%. Every trailer has been really good and I'm expecting nothing less from the game.

  • Speaking of stealth gameplay and Eidos Montreal...Thief 4 info please! (directed at Eidos)

  • Similar to Metal Gear Solid stealth, yet different enough to make it somewhat unique. Looking forward to more info on this game.

  • I love games that put a focus on stealth! Which is partially why I'm so interested in Dishonored.

  • Whoa...

  • I know I'm going to buy the game, and I know I'm going to enjoy it... but sometimes the trailers dedicated to a specific thing for this game really make it feel as though it's going to be one dimensional. You have the options, sure, but you're likely to pick a specialty then not deviate much from that - or so I gather.
  • Not copying Crysis 2 at all with marking your enemeis....
  • Nice trailer, and I love stealth games that are done right such as this one. Always gives me that suspenseful feeling when I'm doing a certain mission if I'm going to get caught or not. And yes, crossbows!
  • there better be poison darts for the crossbow

  • That looks awsome

  • oh yeah vote for my friend here !!!   http://on.ae.com/qevaU2

  • What kind of genre is this game?
  • You can tell this can has many ideas from other games but its blended in so well. Gotta love it!

  • i will get this game if the game got good reviews from most reviewers.
