[YouTube] Deus Ex: The Fall - Announcement - Page 5

post #41 of 45
Heard the news yesterday... so fail, and although I would have even been tempted to play it I can't even do that as the only mobile device I have is a Galaxy S3.

I have a recommendation/suggestion to this problem though.

Here is the plot summary for "The Fall"
We are back in 2027 -- a golden era for science, technology and human augmentation, but also a time of great social divide and global conspiracy. 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...

Here is the plot summary for "The Icarus Effect" (paperback)
IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. BUT YOU CAN SEE IT FROM HERE.

In the near future, with physical augmentation gaining ground and nano-cybernetics only years away, the dawn of limitless human evolution is just beyond the horizon, and a secret corporate cabal of ruthless men intends to make sure that humankind stays under its control. But two people on opposite sides of the world are starting to ask questions that could get them killed.

Secret Service agent Anna Kelso has been suspended for investigating the shooting that claimed her partner’s life. Anna suspects that the head of a bio-augmentation firm was the real target, and against orders she’s turned up a few leads concerning a covert paramilitary force and a cadre of underground hackers. But the cover-up runs deep, and now there’s a target on her back. Meanwhile, Ben Saxon, former SAS officer turned mercenary, joins a shadowy special ops outfit. They say they’re a force for good, but Saxon quickly learns that the truth is not so clear-cut. So begins a dangerous quest to uncover a deadly secret that will take him from Moscow to London, D.C. to Geneva, and to the dark truth—if he lives that long.

The year is 2027; in a world consumed by chaos and conspiracy, two people are set on a collision course with the most powerful and dangerous organization in history—and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.


This looks to me like the new game is based on the book, which I've read and thoroughly enjoyed it.

So, if you're a bit let down by this latest announcement, I'd highly recommend you read the book instead! I got mine from Amazon. thumb.gif

You'll Fall all right, even further than you've fallen already. That pitch black hole in you head will expand and when it reaches the boundaries of your lobes it's going to go poof and sure as insanely stretched explanations go it will be the end for you, dead and gone no more Deus Ex.

Like a doctor killing a rescusitated patient.

Old games need DNR notes.

Sorry to kill your Sherlock Holmes moment, but they said in the announcement video that it's directly based off of the Icarus Effect.

iNever asked for this. redface.gif

I hope they still have some kind of real, proper sequal to DEHR up their sleeves. And honestly after the hype, this announcement is a bit of a let down and slap in the face to true Deus Ex fans.
