12:27 PM | Richard Porcher | Comment on this story
Although most gamers knew it was coming, Eidos Interactive has finally announced the sequel to 2000's smash hit, Deus Ex. The next installment, titled DX2: Invisible War, is currently slated for release on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. While no Mac plans have been announced, the success of Deus Ex on the Mac and the developer's commitment to developing across platforms raise hopes for the title's eventual appearance on the Mac.
Here's an excerpt from the press release:
DX2 takes place approximately 20 years after the events depicted in Deus Ex, in a world only beginning to recover from a secret, conspiratorial war, technology run amok and catastrophic worldwide depression. The winner-take-all geopolitics of mid-21st century Earth have given way to a struggle over more basic concerns: food, water, reestablishing civil law and cleaning up biological and nano-tech fallout. Several religious and political factions see in the chaos the opportunity to shape a worldwide government and they know that the right moves now could determine the shape of human society for decades - even centuries - to come. The player must reveal the secrets of each faction and the identities of the true players in this struggle for world power. In the end, the player discovers that he or she may be the key to all of the factions' plans. But the greatest mystery of all - the game's true goal - is more personal, much deeper and, for maximum impact, is best revealed during play. The story is an important part of any Deus Ex-universe game but character development, simulation and gameplay are, taken together, the real heart of the matter.Blue's News has complete coverage of the announcement, including a copy of the press release, a fact sheet, and screenshots from the PC and Xbox versions.
Curiously, while the press release cites a release date sometime in 2003, the fact sheet claims that the game will be released in November of 2002.
