Deus Ex: The Fall coming to PC -- and there's no microtransactions

Mobile game making the jump to Steam on March 25 for $10.

Deus Ex: The Fall, Square Enix's 2013 mobile game, is coming to PC. The game will launch March 25 through Steam for $£7.99/€9.99/$9.99. If you preorder now (or pick up the game for a limited time after launch), you'll also get a free copy of the original Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition, Square Enix said today on its website.

Eidos Montreal is currently working on the next entry in the Deus Ex franchise for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is part of a new program Eidos is calling the Deus Ex: Universe, which is an initiative aimed at creating an "ongoing, expanding, and connected game world" built across a generation of core games.

A Deus Ex feature film--directed by Exorcism director Scott Derrickson--is also in the works at CBS Films.

CBS Films is a division of CBS Corporation, which is GameSpot's parent company.

I think people should pre-order it just to play the original Deus EX. Not the game itself :P

It's really the other way round, you download the Steam DRM version of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition for $10 US and get this watered down Human Rev style mobile port as a bonus. xD Deus Ex: Goty is DRM free for $10 at gog.comeasily a better deal.

I wish they'd bring it up to date, mainly with cosmetic improvements though; better graphics, animations and rag doll physics. if they remade it on the Human Revolution engine, then I'd be sold. As far as Squenix goes on treatments of two of my favourite franchises: Human Revolution was...n't bad, but Hitman Absolution was utter garbage, and it's going to take a miracle to get me interested in buying something from them again, a mobile, micro-transaction free port for PC, no thanks.

Why does the main character look a bit like Jean Reno?

I read Deus Ex Titanfall and was like "what??" This is all every gaming site's fault for the ridiculously excessive hype and number of articles on that thing!

Hahahaha. *Glove slap*

How about do a Deus EX collecton for ps3 and xbox360 as well ps4,xbox1 no need this tablet game because no one ask for it and sounds to me that the next game will be big open world game just like skyrim and fallout and think doom4 will be open world as well.

Too bad the game is so short... :(


It's really fun of course but it just isn't a very long game unfortunately.

No microtransactions? It seems this PC version is better already.

We want a next gen game for the PC (and consoles... if they can handle it). This is cool, but what we really want is the next chapter in Deus Ex.

Sorry, I don't want to play shitty mobile games on my PC.  I have real games there.

Gamespot isn't only attempting to dumb people down with just video games, but with poor grammar as well. Watch out folks.

Hopefully this experience has made them realize no one wants to play real games on a mobile platform.

They should also change the first 'l' in Fall to an 'i".

Son of a bitch, bought this on iPad recently, might get it again, rather play it on PC tbh, waste of a fiver but iv'e wasted more money on worse things.

I die a little when I realize I live in an age where "and there's no microtransactions!" (improper grammar, btw) is news and a selling point for a game. Like the absence of microtransactions is the new equivalent of a "feature". Thanks a lot devs for racing to the bottom

mobile port is something...well if it isn't casual games like AngryBird and stuff then i'd not recommend to anyone.


i've try halo spartan assasut on xbox.. it's only took me 5 minute to realize that i had wasted my time downloading it.

@Born_Lucky  Don't confuse them putting the option for them in there, and the game forcing it upon the player.  Deus Ex the Fall never forced it on the player, they were simply on the menu screen for cheaters who wanted to get goodies sooner than they should.  You can get everything in game if you just play through it like normal.  I'm not making excuses for it but don't clump this game in with crap like those freemium games.  This game is a legit good game.

@ERRMAHGERD After Thief 4, I'm not sure I trust Eidos Montreal to repeat what they did with DXHR. I think I'd rather wait another generation for another quality DX title than have them push out a 6/10 stinker.

@Thanatos2k  It does sound like an ok game, despite being a short one designed for mobiles in the first place, totally understand where you're coming from though, it really has no place being ported to PC, it makes more sense doing it the other way around, which is usually the case, to use @Jedilink109 example off a few titles ported to phones: "San Andreas, Max Payne, Duke Nukem 3D, King of Fighters 97, Bard's Tale". ;)

@Thanatos2k  Oh all mobile games suck huh?  So San Andreas, Max Payne, Duke Nukem 3D, King of Fighters 97, Bard's Tale all suck too then right?  Grow up, dude.

@Thanatos2k  Most mobile games are shitty, but I have found a few that are pretty awesome.

@berserker66666  I was thinking more of the upcoming sequel for next-gen systems than a mobile game being ported to PC. It may be cheap, but I'll still pass on it.

@ShepardCommandr Neither did I, but I do hope it leads to KH3 coming to Windows and Linux. Don't want to get a Paystation 4 or Extortionbox One for it.

@MysteryGoat  Um, I enjoyed this game QUITE A BIT on my ipad.  Just because you don't "get it" doesn't mean it's terrible.  Find something legitimate to complain about with regards to mobile game.  Perhaps the freemium game model.

@Jedilink109 "So San Andreas, Max Payne, Duke Nukem 3D, King of Fighters 97, Bard's Tale all suck too then right?  Grow up, dude."


- the key sentence being "port of a mobile game", NOT "port of a console/PC game".

@Jedilink109 @Thanatos2k  is that a console/PC games port?

@Jedilink109 @MysteryGoatI'm glad you enjoyed it. The vast majority of people didn't and don't see mobile gaming as a viable future. For small and casual sure, but not as a full time endeavor. The fact that they're releasing this on PC proves that. I'm sure there are quite a few of you that enjoyed this game and possibly others like it. Maybe some even prefer mobile gaming over consoles and the like. But as this game comes to PC we see the majority have spoken with their wallets.
