Deus Ex: The Fall disables firing on jailbroken devices
[UPDATE] Square Enix to release patch that removes restriction.
[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a Square Enix representative issued a statement on the matter to GameSpot. Square Enix will release a patch that will enable all players--on standard and jailbroken devices alike--to play Deus Ex: The Fall without limitation.
"We have not been clear in our communication earlier this week when we launched Deus Ex: The Fall. We did not state clearly that the game would not support jailbroken devices and so we will be switching this off via an update, so that all the supported iOS devices will be able to play the game in the near future," the company said. "We feel it's the right thing to do in this situation, and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
"No customer should be out of pocket when we were not clear from the start, so we'll get the game updated as soon as possible so that everyone who wants to play Deus Ex: The Fall can do regardless of whether their device is jailbroken or not. As soon as this update is live, we will communicate this via the Eidos Montreal Community channels."
The original story is below.
Deux Ex: The Fall, a mobile game based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution will not allow users who have purchased and installed the software on a jailbroken device to access all features of the game, according to posts on Reddit and Apple’s iTunes App Store.
Prompted during the tutorial to fire your weapon, an error message informs players that, “We are sorry, but you can’t fire on jailbroken devices,” halting player progress to the rest of the game.
Customers who purchased the game for $6.99, and are running legally jailbroken devices, are displeased with the restrictive measures preventing them from playing. As a result, some users are now finding success running third-party applications that trick the software into believing it is running on a supported handset.
GameSpot contacted Square Enix seeking comment, but a spokesperson was unavailable at time of publication.
