Deus Ex: The Fall is coming...

One of the top secret things I've been working on over the past few months has now been officially announced, so I can talk about my involvement with Deus Ex: The Fall, a new videogame for tablet and mobile devices.

Set in 2027, in the same world as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, The Fall is an action-RPG and features characters and situations from my tie-in novel Deus Ex: Icarus Effect. The plotline of the mobile game carries on directly after the events of the book, with players taking on the role of former Belltower mercenary and ex-SAS soldier Ben Saxon. In The Fall, Saxon is pulled into conflict with the members of his former team, the Tyrants - a ruthless group of augmented assassins - as he uncovers a conspiracy behind the production of an anti-rejection drug vital to those who have cybernetic augmentations.

Check out the official announcement trailer:

Deus Ex: The Fall was developed by Square Enix’s Mobile division in Europe, in collaboration with the original DXHR team at Eidos-MontrĂ©al and N-Fusion; I worked with the mobile team developing the storyline and the script, and I have to say it's pretty cool for me to see characters I created in a novel coming to life in the gameworld.

Deus Ex: The Fall will initially be released for iOS devices this summer, with an Android platform release soon to follow. For more information, check out the official Deus Ex website Here.
