Deus Ex: The Fall launching July 11

$7 iOS title based on Square Enix action franchise arriving later this week across the world.

Deus Ex: The Fall--the first mobile game based on the Square Enix action franchise--will launch July 11 for $7, the publisher announced today.

The game will be available this Thursday for $6.99/£4.99/€ 5.99 from the App Store on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Deus Ex: The Fall was developed by Square Enix's mobile division in Europe in colloboration with Eidos Montreal and N-Fusion. It is described as a "story-driven action RPG."

The game is set in 2027, a period described as a "golden era for science, technology, and human augmentation," but also a time of serious social divide and "global conspiracy." The game stars Ben Saxon, a former British SAS Mercenary who underwent a physical augmentation.

Deus Ex: The Fall is compatible with iPad 2 and above, iPhone 4S and above, and iPod Touch 5 and above. No mention was made of a release for Android or Windows Phone devices.

In addition to Deus Ex: The Fall, Eidos Montreal is working on two unannounced titles. A Deus Ex feature film is also in the works with CBS Films and Exorcism director Scott Derrickson.

Disclosure: CBS Films is a division of GameSpot parent company CBS Corp.

It doesn't look any worse than Human Revolution.  I miss the real Deus Ex games.

Waiting for a proper Deus Ex title on the PS4/Xbox One.


To add, why didn't they think of the Vita? It is a better market for it regardless of smaller user base. Missed opportunity!

Mobile games are good only  if they are "mobile" games.Most likely playing The Fall on ipad will feel like I'm playing a dumbed down version of human revolution.If you are going to make a mobile game then make it something new and different not just a dumbed down copy of console version, that's it.

I wonder if there's an augmentation to make me give two s**t's about this game?

Well it's at least good that this game didn't occupy a lot of the developers' time, because now they can begin working on a real Deus Ex game (yeah, I know how that sounds, but mobile games are really not what I consider worth spending time/money on).

Why the hell people think mobile is only angry birds? I play KOTOR, Walking Dead, Injustice ( with a lot of unlockables for the console), Magic, Bastion. They added Limbo and Xcom and now are adding Deus EX. There are a LOT of real games to play on ipad, once you get used to the controls, is not bad at all. Of course i didn't buy it thinking about games, but they were a great addition.

Why not expand this game and bring it on the 3DS? I'd probably buy it then!!

I don't care. Give me HR:Director's Cut and DE:HR 2

On PC of course, not some blody phone OS (I have an iPhone4 by the way, but no way I am buying this "Fall" crap....)

All this iOS and mobile gaming hate...so silly, although this thread has offered up some fascinating insight into the minds of sexually frustrated, middle aged virgins.

Even if ''The Fall'' was decent I wouldn't be able to play it anyway as my IPod Touch is 3rd gen. Wish Apple wasn't so stingy with always releasing new versions of it's products every two years or so. Maybe if ''The Fall'' came out for Android I won't have that problem.

Wow 22 whole comments.   Surely SE is bursting with confidence at the buzz this game is generating.  Myself, I consider this abomination an insult to the series, and I expect to see a new article in the near future about it's poor sales, and SE scratching their heads in disbelief.

@deathstream I'm gonna go out on a limb and agree.... Of course, the original is the only one I still really care about...

@Mkeegs79 I was thinking the same thing. If it shows up on Vita, then I'd definitely get it. I absolutely loved Deus Ex: HR.

@odolwa99 There may be as a pre-order bonus.  Pre-order the game, get aug to actually like it?   Possibly these days.

Well there are now things out there like the NVIDIA Shield, Wikipad, and Ouya and people STILL want to complain that mobile games never have physical controls not to mention the Bluetooth controllers out there as well. People hate mobile gaming because it's SO incredibly new and different from anything we've typically had in the past, plus its just EXPLODED in popularity the last few years. I understand hesitation but these games have been around for years now and are only becoming more popular as time goes on. Gamers need to just realize that this kind of gaming is here to STAY for the time being, get over themselves, and just play games and have fun already. Besides, no one is forcing anyone to play mobile games. If you don't like them just don't play them. I don't know why people feel the need to be filled with ABSOLUTE HATRED for this kind of thing. They're just frickin video games. Granted, in app purchases SUCK HORRIBLY and should be done away with, but there are tons of great games without any hint of that crap. Regardless, they're video games. It's just a new form of handheld gaming. If you don't like them, then just don't play them. I don't know why people feel the need to be so hostile about it all the time.

Epic Movie is an abomination. Souljah Boy is an abomination. Nicki Minaj's song Stupid Hoe is an abomination. This game which has graphics and gameplay almost EXACTLY THE SAME as the previous game in the series is not suddenly a desecration of something simply because it's on a "mobile platform". I can promise you this game will sell EXTREMELY WELL because it offers such a rich gaming experience while only being 7 dollars. Just because you don't like playing mobile games yourself doesn't make all mobile games total crap.

If that's the case then you're insulting GTA3, Vice City, Bastion, Limbo, Duke Nukem 3D, Max Payne, Plants Vs. Zombies, Star Wars Knights Of the Old Republic, Final Fantasy Tactics (as well as FF 1-5) , and crap tons of other highly beloved games and sayi they're total crap simply because they were ported to a mobile system. And believe it or not, there ARE loads of great games made just for mobile platforms (and aren't ports from other systems or PC) as well.

If you don't like these kind of games then just don't frickin play them dude.

@derceto Gamespot rarely covers mobile gaming, so SE probably isn't worried about the reaction here.

@derceto It's a mobile game. Not a crime against humanity. =\

@StaticPenguin @Mkeegs79 Are you joking? You think its not? You think a lot of people who are into simple games such as Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and so on will be into a franchise they never played? You think the Vita with controls is not better suited? Get real.

@Jedilink109 Wow.  I wake up, log in with my cup of coffee to your wall of text over a single word in my post.  lol  Ya.... It's too early for me to bother with a lengthy reply.  Thanks for your thoughts man.  They are spot on.

derceto
derceto

@Lhomity @derceto Oh hey, ya, maybe you can highlight the part where I called it such a crime against humanity.   I think I called it an insult to the series.... oh wait, I did.  I knew I was right.

derceto

@Jedilink109 Actually, i think I've seen enough video and screenshots, as well as know well the capabilities of mobile platforms to make it crap to me.  The video alone gives the impression of "cash in" on the title as everything about it screams "cheap" to me.  

This "is" my opinion mind you, I certainly am not passing it off as fact.  Had I tried to claim it fact, I may have given you the bow to tear my post up.  Feel free to do so anyways as you can express your opinion,  but I certainly won't change my opinion or stance on the game based on what I've seen on this game.

Just because a game is a "mobile" game doesn't mean it's crap. You calling it an abomination and an insult to the series is kind of absurd dude. Especially considering the fact that you've never even played it in the first place, you're merely hating it because it's a "mobile game".

@derceto

Modern "gamer" logic: 

'I do not like something/something does not meet my expectations, therefore it is shit and shouldn't exist, and nobody should be able to enjoy it, and corporations are greedy'.

@derceto @Lhomity Would that be hysterical wave of response that usually travels across the internet, or the usual "This does not cater to me, therefore it sucks" wave of response we usually see on gaming sites?

derceto

@Lhomity @derceto Ya, I think the wave of response across sites gives validity to "an insult to the series".  Thanks for your concern.   However, ranking my statement to calling it a crime against humanity, is downright comical.  I did get a laugh.  Thanks for that as well.

Lhomity

@derceto @Lhomity Insult to the series. Crime against humanity. Both are ridiculous statements.

How about: "This one doesn't appeal to me"

Or: "Cool, but mobile games aren't my thing so I'll wait for the next AAA Deus Ex title".
