Deus Ex The Fall, the first foray of the series into the mobile realm, will be available for iOS this summer, with an Android version also coming.
According to an article on the Deus Ex website, the game is coming to the iPad and iPhone in the following months, with an Android version also planned, “but no timing confirmed” for it. Why a developer would choose not to make a game available on the most important mobile platform, with Google Play Store set to take over iOS in terms of downloads this year, is beyond my comprehension, but the game should still be interesting, whenever it might be coming out.
A video has been posted, giving us an idea about what the game will look like and what we could expect (although Executive Game Director Jean-Francois Dugas and David Anfossi, Executive Producer, are showing it on the iPad). As you can see from the video, this is a new game in the franchise, not a remake or port of a previous title.
Deus Ex: The Fall is set in 2027 and features physically augmented former British SAS mercenary, Ben Saxon, who has been betrayed by his employers, the Tyrants, and tries to find out more details about what has happened to him.
According to the two executives, the story is a sequel to the one in the “Icarus Effect” novel, written by James Swallow.
The video shows a preview of the graphics (which look pretty good) and gameplay, which uses screen tapping. Icons in the interface can be reconfigured, so you can enjoy the game whichever way you might like.
As I said, nothing has been revealed regarding the date when you’ll be able to enjoy the game on your Android device.
