'Deus Ex: The Fall' for iOS Lands on App Store

NewImageThe latest installment in the hugely popular Deus Ex video game series, 'Deus Ex: The Fall' has landed on iPhone and iPad slightly ahead of schedule.

The Fall is the first Deus Ex game to be released first on mobile devices, picking up where the book 'Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect' finishes.

Our sister-site TouchArcade tried the game at E3 and found it very promising:
Understandably, a bit of hesitation when you take a game that's traditionally is played on a PC or console makes the jump to virtual controls, but, as seen in this video, it's actually not that bad.

We're excited to (eventually) get deeper into the game, the E3 demos seemed to be very tutorial-heavy with lots of text popups and things teaching you how the game actually works. Touch to move is a little weird, and there's a lot of context-sensitive touch areas, but overall we walked away really impressed.

Deus Ex: The Fall is available on iPhone and iPad for $6.99 from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Getting a game like this for $7 is insanity. Great time to be a gamer! iPads, iPhones, Oculus VR, Kinect, next-gen consoles on the way, and maybe apps soon for AppleTV? (On the flip side... Facebook and Zynga. Oh, well.)

$7 is insane!!! It should be no more than 99 cents!!

Some games that are available on iOS devices are very impressively, especially recently - XCom.

These days, consoles, especially handhelds have a lot of competition... I don't see handhelds lasting for too much longer. Smartphones will replace them.


Between this, ports of XCOM, KotOR, and Baldur's Gate, and other 'franchise extensions' such as Mass Effect and Dead Space, the iPad is becoming quite the way to pass the time.

$7 is insane!!! It should be no more than 99 cents!! You pay for what you get, generally. Professional Developers don't work for free - their employers have to pay them - its still hard to get good mobile developers.

AppleTV apps are coming soon I'm sure... Not sure what is holding back Apple.

It's a completely different developer who made the game with the help of the author from the DX:HR prequel novel using largely recycled art assets. It's pure naivete to say that Square Enix is "diverting resources" to make this game, and the way that the PC gaming community is panning it without playing it is making me ashamed to be a PC gamer.

Very nice, downloading... and I can imagine that with some of the fanbase that the Deus Ex series has, a lot of mom's-basement-gamers will devote a lot of their time on hating Square Enix for the decision of making an iOS game :D .


Yes, because we aren't getting it on PC. Deus Ex is one of PC's most beloved franchises; putting a dumbed down version of it on iOS hurts for those who've been playing since the original game. I'm sure it isn't bad at all - I just bought it - but I wish Eidos had put their effort into a DXHR sequel rather than a version which can never hold a candle to the original, or even Invisible War, because of the platform's limitations.

In my experience, FPS PC games don't translate well to a touch based format. I think this is just a money grab. Milk the tablet world for as much as they can get, and then release the game for PCs. The last version of Deus Ex was pretty good. That doesn't mean this version will be, and it will most likely suck on tablets whether it's good on PC or not. IMHO.
