Eidos and Square Enix announce Deus Ex: The Fall coming soon to Android devices


Deus Ex The Fall mobile game Android

Yesterday, Eidos Montreal teased gamers with a mysterious Vine video showing what looked like the beginning of a trailer for an upcoming sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Having only the name to go by — Deus Ex: The Fall — gamers assumed this would be a next-gen console sequel to Human Revolution. They were wrong. Very wrong.

As it turns out, Square Enix has announced today that Deus Ex: The Fall will be a side-story to Human Revolution, released solely for mobile devices. That’s right, you can expect to play The Fall on your favorite Android device in the near future. A collaboration between Eidos Montreal and and Square Enix’s mobile division, Deus Ex: The Fall includes characters from Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect, and picks up directly where that story ends.

Visually, the game looks great. Not quite mirroring its console counterparts, but in mobile terms, it looks fantastic. The game makes use of touchscreen controls by way of dual onscreen analogs to control movement, and tapping on the screen to either lob a grenade, or interact with the environment by taking cover. The Eidos seems to have done a great job at recreating the FPS/RPG stealth action from the console, allowing players to jump and experience all features that Deus Ex has been known. Expect lots of player choices where in the game, every action has a consequence. Intriguing.

Deus Ex: The Fall will be releasing first on iPhone/iPad this summer for $7, and unfortunately, Square Enix Mobile would not commit to an exact time frame for the Android release (but hey, at least its been confirmed, right?). We’ll be sure to stop by their booth and give you a hands-on during our E3 coverage next week.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  3. This site used to be about Google news. Now it is about pumping software for money.

      1. So, Chris. I have been following this site for about 3 years now. The content really has changed. I see many more articles about expensive software, games and skins than ever before. Can you tell me, with 100% confidence, that all your articles are 100% independent and there are no kickbacks for the articles you write? I think you and your buddies need to sit down and really think about your image. This site seems to have lost its path. It used to be about Android based hardware, Android’s functionality, roots and mod’s for Android, and what different people are doing with Android. But lately, there has been a lot about games for Android. I really think your Phandroid site is starting to have an identify crisis and it is time to do some market research, rebuild the site, and regain a true identify. I think Phandroid is losing its identity.

    1. Dude, how much hardware news, or android software updates your expecting? Android is currently at it’s mature stage pretty much like iOS with not much things to release and talk about. So articles like this are welcome showing what possible titles and thing to look forward to.

      And all website are there to make a income from ad and links. I think Chris Chavez did a really good job so far, i hope you give some respect and i do hope Phandroid make some money in the process and continue provide us with android related news.
