Square Enix announces Deus Ex: The Fall, coming soon to iPhone and iPad

Square Enix has announced Deus Ex: The Fall for iPhone and iPad. Set in the same time period as their console and PC game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, The Fall combines a first-person shooter with third-person, cover-based mechanics. Players take on the role of Ben Saxon, a man who was betrayed by his employers, trying to find out what happened to him. Ben can make use of a host of augmentations that allow him to do things like see through obstructions, become invisible, and punch through walls to attack enemies.

The announcement video shows off some of the gameplay, including the touch controls. These controls include multiple movement options, either using virtual thumbsticks or tapping on your destination, which the developers say is easier for some gameplay on the iPad. Square Enix hasn't announced an exact release date for the game yet, but promises that it will be released "soon".

Square Enix announces Deus Ex: The Fall, coming soon to iPhone and iPad


Sorry but looks like crap compared to my pc! Putting your hands on the screen just seem to block what you see. And so you think mobile gaming will take over, no way. Screens are way way to small. And they don't have the power of a good PC!

It doesn't look like crap by any means. In fact from what I was able to see on this video the graphics look awesome. How can you determine what the game looks like if you see it on a poor quality video?

This is really exciting news! Loved the pc game and looking forward to play it on the ipad. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this news. These guys are awesome!

The issue here is that while it ceritanly raises the bar for iOS games, it greatly lowers it for the Deus Ex franchise, known for its complexity. Statements like "We wanted to make it as easy to play as possible" have greatly angered fans. Its no joke that the YouTube announcement video has 95% dislikes...
