Eidos Montreal has revealed in a tweet today what might be the latest addition to the Deus Ex series. The Canadian studio tweeted: “Are you ready for The Fall?” which might indicate that the next game in the series might be named The Fall. Square Enix, the organization that owns Eidos Montreal, has already registered domains like deusexthefall.com and deusexthefall.net as early as March this year.
It is not yet known whether The Fall will continue the story from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, or be an extension to the 2nd game in the series, Deus Ex: Invisible War. The original Deus Ex game launched in 2000 and featured a storyline set in the 2050s. Deus Ex: Invisible War was the sequel to Deus Ex, and continued the plot from the first game. The latest installment in the series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was launched in 2011, and this game served as the prequel to the original game. Set in the year 2027, Human Revolution’s story showcased a series of events that led to the circumstances seen in the original Deus Ex game.
The game is available on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and made its debut on the Wii U in March. The Wii U game features overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and a better AI. Square Enix is already working on making a movie based on the video games in conjunction with CBS films. Although the title has not yet been announced, it could likely be called Deus Ex: Human Defiance. The movie is set to come out next year.
The entire video game franchise has been very well received, with the 3 games winning a multitude of awards for their original gameplay as well as well-though of storylines. Based on the Unreal Engine, the original game has seen a host of mods and additions that enhance the storyline and bring additional elements. The latest mod to be released for the original Deus Ex game is called Nihilum. This mod adds a new campaign that lasts 7 to 13 hours and features 2 hours of new music as well as the addition of new locations.
