Deus Ex: Human Revolution 'Conspiracy' trailer

The latest trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution is very revealing, focusing on the conspiratorial aspect of the story. Watch at your own risk!

10

Here's a good way of figuring out if a game is close to release: count the number of trailers that come out on a weekly basis. Square Enix has been a media-producing machine, churning out new dev diaries and gameplay videos of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on a regular basis. Many of us are attempting a media blackout before the game's August 23rd release, and Square Enix is definitely not making it easy.

The latest trailer is arguably less exciting than the one crafted for E3, but it is far more telling of the overall story of the game. In fact, it may even be considered "spoilery" for some, as it focuses on the conspiratorial aspect of the story. Watch at your own risk!

      I still don't get Square on this. Great music, great voice acting, what appears to be a great story; and they put it all on an engine that blows monkey balls. And this is from a company that's been known for more than a decade for their beautiful eye candy. I'm still shaking my head.

        Published by Square != developed by Square. This title was developed by Eidos Montreal.

          Montreal just has it going on game dev-wise

        Isn't it an artistic choice?

      At 1:13, is that Gunther and Anna from the first game?

        Doubtful but not impossible.

        In the book There is a cloaking effect female and 2 males that are part of the main bad guy team. Looks more like them. Mind you Gunther is part of the team, but he looks too short for Gunther who is supposed to be tall 6 foot 9 inches.

        Possibly Gunther, but not Anna. Gunther was part of the team that attacked Sarif Industries in the novel, which ties into the beginning of the game, but Anna does not make an appearance. However, it's more likely that that's a different guy.

      For whatever reason, maybe the engine, when I see gameplay I get a real...Alpha Protocol vibe from this. :/

      Takedowns are still full on lame, and I wish this game wasn't saddled with them

        Doesn't bother me so much, just because one would expected a cyborg to be pretty efficient at killing.

          I'm talking about the game mechanic, not the cyborg punching people. I don't like the "press button to launch third person mini cutscene, and oh yeah some of your energy is gone".

            I kind of agree - although its technically no different from staying in first-person view and having a half-second animation instead.

            I guess aesthetically its like overused slo-mo in films - supposed to be cool/badass but if it happens more than twice in 30 mins without a damn good reason it detracts from the experience.

        Agreed to the fullest extent.
