  • Deus Ex 3




  • #2
    In the Deus Ex games, augmentations are body modifications that allow the user superhuman abilities. While augmentations in the first two games were nanotech, Human Revolution is set prior to both and instead features mechanical augmentations. These will be divided into four types: Combat, Stealth, Technology and Social.

    Every enemy squad will have an identifiable squad leader who will direct the team's actions. If the leader is killed, the squad falls into disarray. Enemies will also react to subtle player decisions, such as a change in behavior or weapons, etc.

    Unlike in Invisible War, weapons will fire distinct ammunition types instead of depleting a unified pool. They can also be upgraded to better suit the player.

    In a controversial departure from previous titles in the series, Human Revolution will use a regenerating health model. This change was made because the developers didn't want players to get into a situation where they were unable to progress due to low health, and would be forced to "scrounge for med packs." They see this scrounging behavior as breaking the flow of the game when one retreats to search the entire level for medical supplies. They believe their regenerating health model will still encourage tactical and strategy forming retreats, but not to the extent where the tension and flow of the game is disrupted.

    Human Revolution is primarily a first person game, but will feature a contextual third person viewpoint when using the cover system, certain augmentations, or closeup instant-kill moves.

    The game takes place during the year 2027, 25 years before Deus Ex. Nanotechnological augmentations have yet to be developed and biomechanical augmentations are the current state of the art. The main character, Adam Jensen, is a private security officer with a company that specializes in these augmentations. After he witnesses a chilling attack on his company which leaves him horribly injured and forced to undergo augmentation to survive, "the conspiracy begins." The visuals are a combination of cyberpunk and Renaissance aesthetics, resulting in a futuristic-looking Baroque world. Adam Jensen will be voiced by Elias Toufexis.

    The player will visit five metropoles during the course of the game, including Detroit, Shanghai and Montreal. In addition, the protagonist will have his own apartment where he may store his secrets and collected information. The events in the game will lead to the formation of UNATCO from the original game.

        The first Deus Ex game is my favorite game of all time. The sequel? Not so much. But this game does indeed look promising. Although I do have some problems with the 'Regenerating Health' system, personally.

        But irregardless, that is one of the greatest video game trailers ever. EVER.

          UPDATE:

          For those of you who like me are thinking of pre-ordering the game, a quick word of warning. If you are to shell out extra cash for the Augmented Edition, would would be better served doing so from overseas. The European versions of the Augmented Edition actually come with both pre-order bonuses. The US versions do not at this point in time.

            This game is at the top of my list. However, I won't be pre-ordering it. When it comes to dealing with big game studios, I always wait and see to make sure they don't pull a fast one. CodeMasters burned me with Dragon Rising - I won't be burned again.

              Even smaller studios do it too. The best bet is to wait, but sometimes it is just too hard. And on the few instances where I want a game regardless, I have no problem shelling out for the extra stuff early on.

                I like the 2nd one, but of course not as much as the first. I just downloaded the original from Steam last night. The game has withstood the test of time!

                  It is still amazing, I agree. Great writing, good gameplay, and a story that is still unmatched in its depth. I would love to see a remake that only upgraded things like graphics, physics, and added new content without destroying the original, but it wouldn't happen. I know that deep down any "remake" would reduce the originals genius somewhat.
