The Fall borrows the flavor of the futuristic Deus Ex universe along with the series' best gameplay features — stealth action and systems that support player choice — and packs them into a mobile-friendly 5-7 hours. While The Fall struggles with a frustrating final hour and occasional clumsy writing, it succeeded by pulling me right back into its evocative, proto-cyberpunk world. Deus Ex: The Fall is essentially a side story to 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The year is 2027, and the world is divided into augmented humans and everyone else, with "Augs" requiring special drugs (neuropozyne) to stay alive. Multinational corporations and private military contractors essentially run the world, and human drama abounds amid the chaos. The Fall begins with an introduction to...

Square Enix has had a tough year, with disappointing sales of major core games, but the company isn't getting out of that market, said its head of studios and publishing in a blog post today. "I can categorically say that we're not abandoning core, [AAA] console and PC games," said Phil Rogers, CEO of Square Enix in the Americas and Europe, on the company blog. "We're working hard at improving how we develop our games and how we release them." Rogers was previously the CEO of Square Enix Europe; he assumed the duties of Mike Fischer, former president and CEO of Square Enix America, when Fischer left the company in May. According to Rogers, Square Enix as a whole is exploring new platforms and business models in an ever-changing game industry, and the company hopes to do a better job...

Deus Ex: The Fall developer Eidos Montreal is currently working on an update for the iOS game that will allow it to run properly on jailbroken iOS devices, a Square Enix representative told Polygon. The new mobile entry to the Deus Ex franchise released yesterday for $6.99, and players with jailbroken iPhones and iPads quickly learned that the game detects if it is being played on a jailbroken device and then disables the firing of guns. This renders the game more or less unplayable. Many players took to the iTunes App Store and Reddit to complain about the issue, explaining that once the game was bought, installed and the tutorial played, when players went to pull the trigger, the game presented them with the message: "We are sorry but you can't fire on jailbroken devices." Publisher...

Deus Ex: The Fall, the new mobile entry in the franchise, disables the firing of guns if it detects that a user has "jailbroken" their iOS device, report frustrated players on Reddit and the game's iTunes App Store page. The first installment of The Fall launched yesterday on iOS for $6.99. The game begins with cutscenes and a brief tutorial, then drops players into the game world. When they try to pull the trigger, it presents them with the message seen in the iPhone screenshot above (from Reddit user KipEnyan): "We are sorry but you can't fire on jailbroken devices." It's unclear if players can complete the game without ever firing a weapon. "This is massively offensive on Square Enix's behalf," said KipEnyan. "The obvious implication is that all jailbreakers are pirates who more...

A launch trailer for mobile title Deus Ex: The Fall tells the story of its protagonist, cyborg mercenary Ben Saxon. A former SAS operative, Saxon "lost everything [he] was" and became a killer. He went rogue, he says, to fight against those who controlled him from the shadows. The trailer shows Saxon in action, with customary Deus Ex powers like stealth and X-ray vision alongside more conventional tools like pistols, automatic rifles and grenades. Deus Ex: The Fall is out on iOS today with an Android release planned at some point in the future.

Deus Ex: The Fall, the upcoming mobile entry in the long-running action RPG series, will be available this Thursday, July 11, on iOS, publisher Square Enix announced today. This week's release will be the first in a series of installments for Deus Ex: The Fall, and will cost $6.99 in North America, £4.99 in the U.K. and €5.99 in Europe. Square Enix has yet to announce an Android release date. The Fall is being developed by Square Enix's European mobile studio, which is working with Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal and N-Fusion Interactive. Its story runs in parallel to that of Human Revolution and stars a different lead character, Ben Saxon, a former operative in the British SAS. Eidos Montreal creative director Jean-François Dugas told Polygon last month that the...

Deus Ex: The Fall is a game that has been streamlined for mobile devices while still "retaining the core essence" of a Deus Ex game, according to Eidos Montreal creative director, Jean-François Dugas. Dugas was the creative director of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and is now working with Square Enix's European mobile division to create The Fall. He told Polygon that the mobile game is far from a simplistic or dumbed-down experience that many people associate with mobile titles. Instead, it has been designed in such a way that suits mobile play habits and styles while still offering players meaningful choices. "For example, in the core game you're able to take down characters by killing them or knocking them unconscious, and you can then drag their body to hide them," Dugas said. "In The...
