Deus Ex Domains Spied

A tweet by supererogatory has word that Square Enix has registered domains for DeusExTheFall.com and DeusExTheFall.net, so just days after we learned that the recently uncovered Trademark for Deus Ex: Human Defiance is probably for a film, we have a renewed chance to speculate about a follow-up to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the hit action/RPG. Thanks VG247.

Well shit man, if T4 isn't due out for at least another year I wouldn't hold my breath on this either. Apparently this about things falling however. Or maybe it's about Autumn.

So it might be about these things. I expected DXHR to cover the formation of the NSF actually.

Same here. DXHR was quite good, but the gameworld and narrative felt only tangentially related to that of DX1. Sure, there were a few throw away name drops to Joseph Manderley here, Illuminati there, but if you got rid of those token references, the game would be pretty unrecognizable as DX. That isn't necessarily a bad thing: the game stood pretty well on its own, aside from the fact that the story starts promising but quickly goes no where interesting in the second act, and then falls apart by the end (zombies? really?). But really, DXHR was a Deus Ex game primarily because of it's game mechanic similarities, not because it meshed well with the feel of the original game.

I think the time period kind of got them stuck. You can't really tie it in too directly because of the 25 year gap. Only the earliest machinations of Page and his cabal could have been going on. Now they are in the position of needing to do an Ezio Auditore and leading us over (hopefully) several games up to where DX1 starts us.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Thank GOD! Now get this Thief bidness out the door and get back to DX.


Different teams. The DX:HR team was actually working on the multiplayer for TR. Why they were working on that instead of the next DX? Nobody knows. It's possible that the next DX was still in pre-production so they needed something else for the bulk of the team to do.

In the Deus Ex lore (assuming Eidos doesn't rewrite it, which they probably will), an earthquake hits the west coast of the US in 2030 and is so disastrous that it sends the country close to bankruptcy. The resulting economic and social problems lead to the formation of the Northwest Secessionist Forces.

Then in the late 2030s a virus spreads around the world and kills millions.

So it might be about these things. I expected DXHR to cover the formation of the NSF actually.

This must be the game where everything goes to shit and leaves things kinda like how we find them ages later in DX1.
