Siliconera is reporting that Square Enix has trademarked the name Deus Ex: Human Revolution in Europe. While it could potentially be a brand new game in the series, it's more likely to be the official title for the above-mentioned prequel.

Does that mean that Square Enix is finally about to take the wraps off the game that was first announced way back in 2007? We hope so, but Warren Spector's lack of involvement has us skeptical of how it will all turn out.

Still, if L.A. Noire can finally get an official reveal, then so can Deux Ex 3. Hopefully it'll be soon.

A French gaming blog shows several screenshots and concept art for the upcoming game. Warren Spector is not involved in the project.

I actually missed Deus Ex 2, Invisible War. Is it worth it?

Deus Ex was quite good, imho. The gameplay felt like a precursor to Mass Effect, to some degree. The story wasn't nearly as good, though.

Deus Ex 2 is ok, not amazing but an enjoyable romp in the future just the same.

Looking foward to Deus Ex 3 - I love the intrigue and the different groups the creators put in the Deus Ex world. Great stuff.

first off, Deus Ex is brilliant! not just quite good :P

Deus Ex was purely a PC game, and had a brilliant niche look and feel to it, combined with the RPG side. tweaking your characters skills, and the moral decisions you have to make that effect the story in different ways. and the choices of approaching objectives.

DE:Invisble War was aimed at the PC but also the console market too. As such, the niche look and feel was ripped out of the game(the heart basically) and dumbed down for the console. It still offers the moral choices that effect the story, and picking your approach to objectives like Deus Ex. but its quite frankly not as good, its decent, but doesnt better the origional.

I missed it myself, mostly because when it came out my PC wasn't good enough to run it (I since switched to console gaming almost exclusively).

Are you sure that's a fair comparison? After all, Deus Ex was originally released ten years ago, and games have progressed by leaps and bounds ever since, as evinced by Mass Effect 2 and other story driven titles.

Deus Ex received many accolades...

Quote:

Deus Ex has earned a number of awards and many nominations, including over 40 Game of the Year and/or best in its class awards in magazines and websites. This includes awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, IGN, GameSpy, PC Gamer, Computer Gaming World, and The Adrenaline Vault, among many others. Deus Ex was also awarded "Excellence in Game Design" and "Game Innovation Spotlight" at the 2000 Game Developers Choice Awards and won in the "Computer Innovation" and "Computer Action/Adventure" categories at the Interactive Achievement Awards.It has additionally received many Best Story accolades, including first prize in the 2006 Gamasutra "Quantum Leap" awards for storytelling in a video game.

Deus Ex has appeared in a number of greatest games of all time lists and hall of fame features, placing in the top thirty for most, and in the top ten for many. This includes numerous IGN 100 Greatest Games of All Time lists, GameSpy's Top 50 Games of All Time, 25 Most Memorable Games of the Past 5 Years, and Hall of Fame, numerous PC Gamer Top 50 PC Games lists, Yahoo! UK Video Games' 100 Greatest Computer Games of All Time, and in GameFAQs' Top 100 Games of All Time. It was also named second best game of the decade by Gamasutra.

The game arguably deserved all such praises for its time, not least of which was because, as Niko pointed out, it allowed you to shape your experience of the story through philosophical and moral choices step by step.

If anything Deus Ex paved the way for subsequent RPGs like Mass Effect 2. I don't understand your point of comparing it to another game launched today.

AndreaDraco83 03-12-2010 10:43 AM

I have both the original games, but never played them. I might give them a try some day. Do you guys recommend them?

Niko 03-12-2010 10:54 AM

For sure, i reccomend you play Deus Ex. It is a huge game though, and will take some time to finish. DE:IW is not as long, and generally not as good as the origional, but still worth playing.

If your going to play DE3, then playing DE1 & DE2 is ideal.

Hammerite 03-12-2010 12:58 PM

Both are brilliant, in my view (first one's mush better, of course), and I'm very much looking forward tae this.
Also, might get Mass Effect based on what some have said here... :)

Not in every department, in some aspect Deus Ex is a lot more complex and evolved than Mass Effect 2, mainly in narrative freedom. You could do almost whatever you wanted and the story would shape and evolve based on your decisions. I know Mass Effect also does this to an extent, but the freedom you have is much more limited and constrained. I mean in Deus Ex you cold murder a lot of main characters whenever you wanted and still the story evolved. Its like you could murder Tali (god forbid) and still manage to continue the story.

Video looked like another x-men clone to me how uninspiring.

Hammerite 03-13-2010 04:10 PM

I doubt it will be, given the quality of the two previous games.

Ugignadl 03-13-2010 04:34 PM

In this forum, on mostly adventure games, it is fair to compare games released 10+ years ago to games recently released. Because most of the time it is more than a fair comparison. How many recent adventure games surpass the greats of 2000, or even earlier?

I enjoyed Deus Ex and am looking forward to the third. But I will only be able to play it on the PS3, so I hope that platform doesn't suffer.

Monolith 03-14-2010 01:11 AM

Got a chance to attend the GDC Seminar for the Deus Ex 3 art direction. A really amazing presentation.

Hammerite 03-14-2010 04:20 AM

Sounds int'resting. Could ye elaborate a bit more?

Periglo 03-16-2010 04:27 AM

I am deeply sorry for the controversy. I was actually thinking about Advent: Rising!!!

I have been unable to check on this thread and correct it before...

So embarrassing! Plus, Deus Ex has been in my to-play list for a long time. I'll now add the second part to it, and this new one.

Monolith 03-16-2010 05:25 PM

Here is a video with some information I got from the Deus Ex 3 seminar.
