The original Deus Ex will probably go down as one of the greatest PC games of all time. Unfortunately, its Invisible War sequel wasn't nearly as well received. The sequel's shortcomings have caused many to worry about the next title in the Deus Ex franchise: Human Revolution. This third chapter, which will serve as a prequel to the first game, is the first effort from a new Eidos studio located in Montreal. The studio released a gameplay trailer yesterday, and I have to admit that it has me intrigued.
The trailer is meant to show off "multi-path, multi-solution gameplay" built on four pillars: combat, stealth, hacking, and social. Only the first two are showcased in the trailer, which approaches an early level of the game using three different strategies.
After being led through what felt like an on-rails single-player campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Human Revolution looks like a refreshing change of pace, especially if those other pillars are well-implemented. I love a heavily scripted thrill ride as much as the next guy, but it's getting a little old. Thanks to Joystiq for the tip.
