Deus Ex: The Fall hits Android today

Last year, Square Enix released a mobile iteration of Deus Ex called "The Fall," starring soldier Ben Saxon. It was actually a pretty decent game, and one that would strongly benefit from real controls and a Vita port. B...

Deus Ex: The Fall is now on sale for a buck

That Deus Ex mobile game The Fall is now $0.99 on iTunes, which is a decent price to check it out at. It basically pares down the Human Revolution experience into a mobile offering, but it still has that "steal...

Review: Deus Ex Human Revolution: Director's Cut (Wii U) photo
Review: Deus Ex Human Revolution: Director's Cut (Wii U)
by Chris Carter

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was quite the accomplishment when it was released. It wasn't everything an old-school Deus Ex fan could ask for (those boss fights), but it was a very reasonable compromise, and a great game in its own right.

Fast forward over two years later, and the Director's Cut is now gracing the twilight of the current console era, with new content and improved visuals in tow. While I'm not quite sure those extras are enough to sway fans who have already beaten the game from top to bottom, the good news is it's still the same great game we all enjoyed back in 2011.

UK newspaper The Sun thinks Deus Ex is real

The Sun, the bastion of quality newspaper journalism and good taste, has printed a small, yet to me, totally hilarious blunder. A section of an article about artificial implants and limbs has a picture of a cybernetic replace...

How to upgrade Deus Ex PC with the Director's Cut content

On PC, new players can dive right into Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut with a full $19.99 purchase, but there are other money-saving options for the rest of us who own the base game already and want that new content....

Deus Ex: Human Revolution costs more on Wii U photo
Deus Ex: Human Revolution costs more on Wii U
by Alasdair Duncan

Looks like Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is going to cost extra if you're planning on getting the Wii U version. Nintendo Everything has checked prices at a few retailers and it turns out the final price on Nintendo's platform will be $50 -- that's $20 more expensive than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. That price is consistent across Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy.

This doesn't appear to be the case in the UK however, with the Wii U version slightly cheaper at £23.99 on Amazon.co.uk, compared to the 360 and PS3 versions which are £24.99. The PC version on Amazon costs just £14.36. Other UK retailers, like GAME and Play.com, have priced the Wii U version at £29.99.

I can understand the annoyance at paying more for a game that's cheaper on other platforms but in this case I can sort of see justifying charging more. The Wii U GamePad support is pretty extensive and those are features gamers won't necessarily get on another platform. Still, I'd be really interested to see a breakdown of how sales of the Director's Cut were split between all platforms, especially as this is the first time Human Revolution has appeared on Wii U.

That Deus Ex: Universe trademark? It's not what it might've sounded like. Eidos Montreal has lifted the lid on its future plans for the franchise, which include multiple games for PC/consoles as well as mobile titles, books, and graphic novels -- that's what Universe is all about.

"The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games," writes studio head David Anfossi. "It's a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before."

An important first step is a new core game from the team behind Human Revolution. Announced for next-generation consoles and PC, the title is currently in production and you can see the first concept art above. We actually asked for this! "[The artwork] shows trans-humanism segregation, which is a backdrop to our vision for the next Deus Ex," says Anfossi.

"It represents a "ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."

Nab four bundled Square Enix games for $15 by day's end

Have you somehow avoided picking up Just Cause 2, Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Sleeping Dogs for mere pittance? I feel like they've all been below $5 at some point, but if you're still looking to own the...
