After teases and much speculation, Square Enix today officially announced Deus Ex: The Fall, an iOS game due out this summer for $7.

Developed by Square Enix Mobile in collaboration with Deus Ex: Human Revolution studio Eidos Montreal and N-Fusion, The Fall is described as a "story-driven action RPG." It is the first Deus Ex title in the series to be released on mobile and tablet devices.

The Fall 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.

"Betrayed by his private military employers, the Tyrants, not only is his own life at risk, but for all augmented humans, time is running out," reads the game's description.

The Fall picks up directly after the events of Random House's Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect novel from James Swallow.

"The team has done an incredible job creating a whole new story and controls for intuitive touch screen gameplay, whilst staying true to the Deus Ex universe," Eidos Montreal game director Jean-Francois Dugas said in a statement. "Players can expect exploration, action, hacking, stealth, social enhancers, player choice and consequence--the full Deus Ex experience."

Square Enix mobile general manager Antony Douglas added that the company will not cut any corners on The Fall just because the game is for mobile and not consoles.

"Smart devices are central to Square Enix's platform strategy and we approach it with the same attention as our boxed and digital releases," he said. "Deus Ex: The Fall is going to be testament to our commitment in delivering high quality entertainment on mobile and tablet devices."
