Deus Ex: The Fall update sneaks in iPad 2 support, AI fixes


Square Enix has issued a new update for Deus Ex: The Fall, the iOS action-RPG set after the events of the Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect novel. This latest patch adds support for iPad 2, fixes a few crash bugs and enhances AI, guaranteeing "enemies do not lose sight of the player" any longer.

Deus Ex: The Fall was initially expected to be a sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution when trademarks were discovered back in March. It's an experience our review says presents moments of joy but is ultimately "hollow."

Los Angeles (August 6, 2013) – Square Enix today announced that its mobile title DEUS EX: THE FALL™ now features iPad 2 support. Following the game's successful launch on select iOS devices, iPad 2 users can now download the game for $6.99 on the iTunes App Store.

In addition to iPad 2 compatibility, DEUS EX: THE FALL also received a new update that enhances the game's A.I., making enemies more effective at tracking the player during active combat. Enemies are now less likely to lose sight of the player during gameplay, creating more exciting and challenging combat scenarios.

Winner of seven "Best Mobile/iOS Game" awards at E3 2013*, DEUS EX: THE FALL is the beginning of a new journey in the DEUS EX® series. Set in 2027– a golden era for science, technology and human augmentation, players step into the shoes of Ben Saxon, an augmented former British SAS Mercenary desperate for the truth behind a global drug conspiracy threatening his life.

Developed by Square Enix's Mobile division in Europe, in collaboration with the original DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION® team at Eidos-Montréal and N-Fusion, DEUS EX: THE FALL is a full story driven action-RPG and the first DEUS EX in the series to be developed for and released on smart devices.

DEUS EX: THE FALL is available for $6.99 on the iPod Touch 5, iPhone 4S and above, iPad 2 and above, and iPad Mini.
