Over the past few months I've been working on some top secret videogames projects that iron-clad non-disclosure agreements have forbidden me from talking about...
But now, official word has been given and I'm able to reveal some news about my current involvement with the Deus Ex
My boss David Anfossi (studio head over at Eidos Montreal) put out a blog over at the EM site (click Here
to read it in full) where he talks about Deus Ex Universe
, an ongoing plan for future games across multiple platforms and spin-off projects in other media.
I've seen a few of the ideas that are circulating inside EM right now for DXU
and there's some very cool stuff being discussed...
Where this all kicks off is with the release of the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Directors Cut
, now officially confirmed for the 22nd of this month for all NTSC regions and the 25th for PAL regions.
is an uprated and improved edition of the original game, with new graphic fidelity, retooled boss fights and a developer's commentary option. It'll also include The Missing Link
DLC and retailer-exclusive 'Tong's Rescue
' missions seamlessly integrated into the narrative.
It's great to see this "utimate" edition of DXHR
out in the wild, and I can now also announce there will be an exclusive to the Square Enix Online Store
in the form of Deus Ex: Fallen Angel
, an original eBook novelette written by me.Fallen Angel
is a prequel tale set before the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution
, and tells the story of fan-favourite character Faridah Malik in the days before her recruitment as Adam Jensen's pilot for Sarif Industries.Deus Ex: Human Revolution Directors Cut
will be available on Wii U, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows PC platforms, with support for Wii U Gamepad, Smartglass and PS Vita; a Mac edition will follow in the months ahead.
But Fallen Angel
and the Director's Cut
are only part of the ongoing plans for Deus Ex
; the DXU
announcement also officially reveals that an all-new game
for next-generation consoles and PC is currently in development at EM, and I'm pleased to be involved with the script and story for this forthcoming interation of the series.
