View Full Version : Deus Ex news from GameInformer

So I opened this months issue of game informer and was delighted to see that HR got some pages about it with some new unseen pics I have yet to see yet.

So basically it explains the beginning of the story where the main character starts off in the lab as we all know but it points out some good details about the stealth action later on. Stealth is going to be heavy enough to make an large impact in the game and so far from the trails they had played. So is everything else. From selecting the augs that you can get for stealth like the one that makes you see through walls or even one I never heard of that shows the tunnel of vision people see in so I am assuming you can stay out of the enemies sight by knowing where they can and cannot see.

As for role playing "if any" elements such as skill points and level ups in the ability to hack or use guns etc it did not say yet. However this game is going to make a scene in the role playing in other areas such as decision making impacts the game in large ways. Even when you do not think you are making a decision at the time it apparently effects the game in other ways. So the way you handle about the level itself could alter the way the game works as well from what I gathered from the article.

So lets assume that I go about stealth killing people. I am assuming that just like in splinter cell if the body is found than the guards are alerted. Hopefully if they did not overlook this part like in SOOOO many games before it where you can kill people etc. They guards could be scrambling around or if in a high security area. Actually set traps or barricades behind doors. Find creative ways to lure the player into a trap "Have no Idea how advanced or innovative the A.I might be" IF they could just have the A.I similar to the guys in the game fear. Jumping through windows, Movement and using cover etc. Or more advanced stuff like what I mentioned. It could be possible that what you do in the game could effect the game in more ways than mentioned before and they still have a few weeks to make the last few tweaks to the game before its out on the 8th of march.

For the 10000000th time, there is no official release date yet.

In order to get an accurate look at the mag, Save the pic and zoom in on it because photobucket does not have a good zoom option for looking at it. Second from the top.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y194/A4_Shadow_Fox/DeusExScan.jpg

Here is the Calendar for releases for the month of march. Its been common knowledge for about three months now that the release date was set for march but we did not know what date.

So from the mouth of Vasarto..or rather his typed words. FOR THE 10000000th TIME ITS COMING IN MARCH 2011.

Game stop told me this months ago and now Game Informer also says its march and gives us an exact date.
Now if you zoom in on the dates of the march 8th than you will see that is the Official release date and since its less than a few weeks away the chances of it getting delayed are slim to none.

Has the date been given directly by Square Enix or Eidos Montreal? No? Than it's not official by the very definition.

Vasarto
16th Feb 2011, 10:40
Does any video game release ever specifically say a date? No of course not. When a date is set by a major company its because that is what the devs told them it will be ready by. They do not need to actually say "Because they told us so" Why would GameInformer, IGN,Game Stop, and all those other web sites say march 8th when its two weeks away? Would you like me to have a recording or video of me calling my game stop and telling me that the game is coming out then?

Kodaemon
16th Feb 2011, 10:45
Does any video game release ever specifically say a date?

Yup. For example, The Witcher 2's official release date is May 17. This is the date given on the game's official site, by the devs in interviews etc.

Well I am gonna listen to what my trusted resources tell me. If they tell me a game is and its this close and they are still telling me that. I am gonna listen to them.

As it was said in the GI. They are making the last few tweaks to it to bring it all together before they are finished. So unless something happens than I know its coming out soon. GI and GS have never lied to me yet. At least this short of notice before.

Vasarto, i hope you understand how magazines have their articles to write month or even more before that magazine goes printing? We heard about delay to next fiscal year in late January so most likely that interview forego a few days before that when there was a set date to march 8.

That's true, I art directed a national magazine once, I was working roughly 3 months in advance. 90% of the mag is ready a long time before, it's just jockeying for position with advertising space and corrections that take up the final week/s.

Info is always more accurate from the horse's mouth.

Early 2011.
To my mind, that is any time before June 21st.

Also, shops in the UK, if they are selling it on March 8th, they aren't aware of it.

Yeah and Diablo 2 was once supposed to come out in December 2009 according to Gamespot.

Oh and according to the Giant Bomb link, the British version comes out on the 25th of February. Yeah, right.

This is absolutely idiotic on so many levels. So you are going to trust a third party source, rather than THE PEOPLE WHO FREAKING MADE THE GAME!?

That's like me telling you "I am NOT dead" and then you saying "But this guy who I trust very much tells me that you ARE dead, so i believe him. If he says so, then it MUST be true".

The game isn't coming out on the 8th of March. DEAL WITH IT!

(and been successful) the only one i can remember in a haze is quake 3 arena for the ps2. nobody not even the ps2 mags had any info about it until it arrived in the post oneday.

17th Feb 2011, 18:09
DNF has an official release date of May 3rd. Human Revolution has no official release date.

Before DNF's date was announced, retailers dated the title as a January or February release, so - as in most cases - they had no real information, and were just speculating. Actually looking back, DNF has probably had 50 or more 'release dates' that retailers have put out to try to encourage pre-orders.
