After several days of teasing, Eidos Montreal have fully unveiled Deus Ex: The Fall. It's a new chapter in the Deus Ex universe that explores the conspiracy behind the augmentation drug monopoly, though some of you might be surprised to learn that it's a first person shooter for "mobile and tablet devices."

Set in 2027, a "golden era for science, technology and human augmentation, but also a time of great social divide and global conspiracy," Deus Ex: The Fall stars a brand new protagonist. Ben Saxon, an augmented British SAS Mercenary, has been betrayed by his PMC bosses and sets out on a mission to unmask the corporate skullduggery behind a stranglehold on essential drugs that stop host bodies from rejecting cyborg parts. "Not only is his own life at risk, but for all augmented humans, time is running out...," foreshadows the blurb.

Deus Ex: The Fall is described as a "full experience" that offers familiar 3D FPS and stealth action, and will set you back £4.99 at launch.

According to the announcement trailer, it will be exclusive to iOS on release. No, an Android version hasn't been announced yet. Sorry.

Bah, for a while they had me interested. DE:HR was fantastic but I've no interest in a mobile game.

I didn't ask for this.

Haha, the feeling of disappointment around here is almost palpable. Stupid developers.:)

This is all wrong. The correct length of a level of a tablet game is the time it takes you to have a dump.

Now that I've had time to absorb this - this whole idea just feels ill-conceived.

The majority of tablet gamers are looking for a pick-up-and-go experience (as DivideByZero pointed out), whereas the majority of Deus Ex fans are looking for an in-depth, tactical, engrossing experience. The area on the venn diagram where the two audiences overlap is surely very small.
