Eidos Montreal’s highly anticipated sequel is a mobile game. Surprised?
Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have finally revealed action-RPG Deus Ex: The Fall, a sequel set in the same setting as Human Revolution, but coming to mobiles and smartphones. Set in 2027, the game follows former SAS mercenary Ben Saxon as he works his way through a drug conspiracy and seeks revenge against his former employers, The Tyrants. Other characters from Random House’s Deus Ex: The Icarus Project will also be appearing.
Executive Game Director at Eidos-Montréal Jean-François Dugas stated that, “We’re really excited to continue the Deus Ex series on mobile and start a new journey. The team has done an incredible job creating a whole new story and controls for intuitive touch screen gameplay, whilst staying true to the Deus Ex universe.
“Players can expect exploration, action, hacking, stealth, social enhancers, player choice and consequence- the full Deus Ex experience.”
Antony Douglas, General Manager of Square Enix Mobile, also added, “Smart devices are central to Square Enix’s platform strategy and we approach it with the same attention as our boxed and digital releases. Deus Ex: The Fall is going to be testament to our commitment in delivering high quality entertainment on mobile and tablet devices.”
