Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The correct pronunciation of Eidos’ futuristic shooter-RPG may have troubled the gaming populace for an entire decade, but regardless of how you say it, Deus Ex and its hi-tech, nano-augmented gameplay is back for a third round, and it’s bringing some jaw-dropping visuals.
It looks a bit orange…
Well, as a certain company’s catchphrase goes, the future’s bright, the future’s orange. Human Revolution is set in 2027, 25 years prior to the original Deus Ex, introducing Adam Jensen, a security officer working for the corporation behind the augmentations. When the company is unexpectedly attacked, Jensen endeavors to get to the bottom of the assault and unravel the conspiracy unfolding before him – using the corporation’s cutting-edge augmentations to help him on his way.
Though it looked gorgeous in the demonstration at last month’s E3, that 2011 release date is still a fair way off, so don’t expect much on Human Revolution for a while yet. As soon as we get our hands on it, we’ll let you know.
Human Revolution is mainly viewed from a first-person perspective, but pulls back into a third-person view while performing takedowns (melee and sneak kills) and when hiding behind cover. You’ll also get to roam around populated cities with NPCs reacting appropriately to your actions.
