Square Enix has released yet another dev diary, this time focusing on the various cities you can travel to in the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Detroit is the home of the augmentation revolution, an analogy to the rise of the automobile in the 20th century. Montreal is home to Picus, the leading media organization in the world (and also real-life home of developers Eidos Montreal). Hengsha, an island of Shanghai, features Tai Yong Medical, featured in last week's dev diary.

One of the more fascinating stats revealed in the video is the sheer amount of content created for the game. There are 100 different brands created for the game, in order to give an authentic feeling to the world. There are also over 1300 props so that the developer could fill the world with "clutter. Loads of crap everywhere." Apparently, the future isn't quite a squeaky clean place to live.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution launches on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 August 23.

      Still haven't got myself to pre-order it. But with each video my defenses are crumbling more and more...

        I haven't preordered because that's pointless in this day of digital delivery and overnight orders from amazon, but that doesn't mean I won't have it day one.

          ding ding ding! Preordering is a joke period... UNLESS it's a halo seller then you might want to consider it given it'll be almost a month or less for more orders to come in.. These days though if they estimate strong sales the stores will be pretty stocked....

            I preordered it because the CE might sell out and I'd save 7$

          I like pre-ordering digital stuff because it's like a present when it finally comes out, as I've usually totally forgotten about it.

            There's about zero chance I'm going to forget about Deus Ex. And I'll probably buy it on Steam once reports of preloading occur, but I hardly count that as preordering.

          I like to preorder and preload still because steam servers at release are pretty crazy and expecting to just buy and download games is probably ill advised, even today with Steam being so mature.

            Like I said above, I'll probably grab it on steam when preloading starts, but again, that's hardly preordering.

          Look at all these people talking about how they'll get it on Steam.

          But if I say which platform I'm considering getting this game on, all hell will break loose. >_>

            Why? I'm getting it for 360. It will work fine. The graphics aren't that good that I'd want to run it on my gaming PC. For multiplatforms it's rare when I go to PC, unless it's something like Battlefield 3.

              The game will have an inferior interface on consoles. And superior graphical features on PC.

                The graphics look shitty period. I'm fine with that, I'm there for gameplay. I'm not concerned about interface. The game isn't that complicated. It's not an MMO. I know that the devs have been trying their very best to make the PC platform function like it should. I know the interface won't be consolized. Yet the graphical fidelity is subpar even for a console game.

                There are instances where going PC will give you huge net benefits (big mod communities, completely seperate texture set, etc) , this game isn't one of them.

                  If you feel that the game is lacking in the graphics department then the PC version will be the least lacking.

                    My mentality is do whatever platform you prefer because there's no real benefit anywhere. Most of my friends are on XBL, I can lend them the game, etc. After the 360 I've enjoyed gaming more with less frustration. It's just a preference now. Games like DIRT 3, Witcher 2 and in the future BF3 will be perfect for my PC.

                    In the end we will both either love or hate the game for the same reasons. It's the same game and it's graphics will look subpar on my TV and subpar on my monitor. Full res on my PC isn't going to make the game any better, I just won't be able to let my friends borrow it.

          Unfortunately they're doing that pre-order only bonus mission and weapons thing. It's a dick move imo. Punishes customers that would rather wait and see reviews and opinions of the game before purchasing. This is a bad trend for gaming and I really hope people don't just let it slide.

      since this stuff gets to the chatty now, please be sure to spoiler pretty much anything. Some of us are on media blackout.

          Appreciate it! The summary was perfect. I was just making a request of people posting comments, not you Andrew.

      This turned into a must buy for me! I just wish there were more people in the streets, then I'd really be in Bladerunner.
