Here is new footage showing off multiple approaches to playing the game. You can be stealthy or go in guns blazing. It is far from linear, offering various pathways into any given situation. The orange glow does not look as bad as I previously thought, but it might get boring halfway through the game. Hopefully there is more variety to the environments. Apparently the game starts off fairly linear as a tutorial to get you into the mood, then develops into more of an open environment. But no it is not 'open world' as depicted in games like GTA or Just Cause. I think the correct term here is 'sandbox', giving you an extensive freedom to play the game in whatever manner you like instead of following a predetermined path.
For those of you that are unaware the game will be released on 23rd August(US) and 26th August(Europe). It is single player only but boasts a campaign of 25 hours which does not include all of the side missions would extend the game even further.
Fans of the original and newcomers alike will enjoy this. Move over Fallout we have a new contender. Post a comment and get the discussion rolling.
Edit: Here is fresh Deus Ex footage. Hopefully this will restore more faith in the game.
