It looks like it'll be the title to an upcoming film (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/news/a462859/deus-ex-human-defiance-trademarked-for-movie.html), rather than a game, but still exciting!

Any stabs as to what we'll be seeing tomorrow?

Tomorrow...April 1st...April Fools Day...

Not convinced. Sounds like a pretty weak idea for an April fools joke to me ;)

Also, whoops. Someone got in just before me. Now where's the "delete thread" button...

But it's just bad marketing to make an announcement on April Fools Day. Oh wait, EM - bad marketing - yeah it kinda makes sense now.

Errm, maybe they're trying to set a tone of cyberpunk paranoia for us!

Their marketing strategy concentrates on the virtues of keeping very quiet until they're completely ready to let loose. The campaign for HR was pretty great I thought, once they decided to get it moving.

Imagine if they make it look like it's an April fool's joke, and everyone knows it's a joke, and they announce tomorrow that they are really making a new game! Double fooled! :lol:

I was wondering about those squares. My resolve about it not being April fools is slipping.

I was wondering about those squares.

Well, DXHR was the 3rd DX game and it featured triangles which have 3 vertices/sides. If this is a 4th DX game it might feature squares which have 4 vertices/sides.

Edit ~ so we're still going with the ****ty black and gold?

So in DX 6 will we find out why AJ had a hexagon on his head?

That's why I am certain it's a joke. No way you would go with the same logo design and color scheme like that. People made fun of the triangles so now they are doing squares.



So in DX 6 will we find out why AJ had a hexagon on his head?

Yes. But circles are all the rage.

Spyhopping
31st Mar 2013, 21:31
It does seem odd that the logo design is so similar, but perhaps that's what we'll be seeing tomorrow.



Yes. But circles are all the rage.

I suppose that'll be in DX:3.14159

31st Mar 2013, 21:55
68_pie, we would have to consider HR as being the 'first' game rather than the third, wouldn't we?

I don't know. It can't very well work retroactively. I mean, DX:HR was a prequel, so the original DX would have to be associated with a shape that has at least four or more sides to it. There's like two intersecting 'C' shapes and a ball in the middle of them.

The Sarif Industry website was indeed a genius piece of marketing, however if this is indeed an April Fool you're going to make a lot of enemies (were you trying to change something?). Deus Ex has an huge fanbase but let's not try to make them angry. I'd probably be REALLY upset tomorrow if I find out that it was a joke.

Obvious April Fool's is obvious. The logo looks like crap, and there were never any "rumors" about it being announced tomorrow.

MasterTaffer
1st Apr 2013, 00:22
I think it's natural to be skeptical of anything announced on April 1st. I don't think it's obviously a prank, though it very well could be. We'll have to wait and see. If it is, I'll take it in stride.

The squares could mean this is the fourth game. Four sides/points/angles in a square just like there are three sides/points/angles in a triangle, which were used heavily for the third game.

How's that saying go? I think it's something like, "Fool me once, what a shame" followed up by a cattle prod to the back. :P

But yeah. I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping this isn't just a joke (when I first saw it on Facebook, I nearly jumped out of my chair), but if it is, well then that just means more planning for an eventual sequel.

I've got bad feelings this will probably be a handheld/mobile/social game.

I'd be perfectly happy if it was a mobile or handheld game, but NOT happy if it was a social/freemium/city-building game. I'd love a point and click adventure game for iPad starring Pritchard or some other hacker.

Unrelated but I will say buying a product that you have no interest in (gay porno chopper sim) just because you are a fan of the company is questionable though. For example I am a fan of LGS but I will never buy Flight Unlimited or British Open Championship golf simply because I have no interest in those type of games.
It's not like EM are in danger of being closed either, DX:HR earned them a reputation, acceptable sales and some GOTY awards. Only a few though, whilst DX earned around 50. The gaming press aren't so tasteless after all. For me it's the same- DX:HR did deserve a few, whilst DX I'd shower with awards.

So what is your motive for buying Eidos Montreal's new gay porno flight sim that is somehow related to the Deus Ex series? Do tell.

Didn't the company director say he wanted the series to become a meta-narrative/cash cow? A gay porno chopper sim starring Jock and JC is a possibility then.
And wasn't Human Defiance already confirmed to be a movie? Hmmm....

If it's a game, it HAS to be a proper release, not some silly mobile app. Going from legendary immersive sim to ok immersive sim to good by today's standards FP/RPG to point and click for mobile is a bit too much for me.

I'm a fan of the series, not the company. I actually don't like Square Enix, because I don't like JRPGs.

I am a fan of Square before they merged with Enix. Heck, I am a fan of countless devs from the 90's before most sold out or got bought out.
Also, I was expecting you to be a fan of Eidos Montreal, not Square-Enix.

My Deus Ex mod has Deus Ex written on it. Save your money and play that instead ;) (dw, if it IS the real deal and not a gay porno thingy or the movie destined to be bad then I totally expect you to get the new game instead. My mod is just alterations, not a whole fresh experience).

Start accepting donations, that's legal, as far as I know.
A word to the wise: a list of all, or at least most features on the description page would help a lot. Just copy-pasting summary which has "This mod has new awesome stuffs in it" doesn't quite cut it.

Donations: It would be immoral and i'd be told to get ****ed. HDTP and TNM, those mods dev cycles spanned many years and as far as I am aware have not asked for a penny. Note my mod requires HDTP to run. This is only a good thing.
I was joking about taking your hard earned dollar, maybe.

I have never once seen a mod that lists all/most of it's features in the moddb summary, it's called a summary for a reason ;). You'll find lengthy details in the readme. Yet still, the readme doesn't even list everything for spoiler reasons and to save me from insanity.
But here is some more details for you:

V2 Changelog:

AUGMENTATIONS:

-Regeneration Aug effectiveness significantly reduced.
-Energy Shield is now Passive/Always Active, does not drain energy.
-Spy Drone energy drain rate further reduced.
-EMP Shield is now Passive/Always Active, does not drain energy.

SKILL SYSTEM:

There are many additions/alterations to the skill system, some within the maps themselves (More environmental hazards for example). Note all the additions below are, well, additions. They do not replace the vanilla features of the skill system.

-Swimming skill is a requirement to swim in some areas, as there are no rebreathers to be found. You also cannot just swim with regeneneration augmentation activated either as drowning damage has been increased, and the regen aug is far less effective.
Taking swimming routes is also far more rewarding in some cases. (To sneak past tough enemies, plus some better pickups in some spots).
Karkians are more common in water but upgrading swimming to master will allow you to swim rings around them hacking away with even a combat knife for example, as master skill allows you to swim even faster than vanilla.
There is still the aqualung augmentation, but it is not as effective as swimming skill, and requires augmentation upgrades.

-Taking Environmental training each skill upgrade allows you to stack Hazmats, Ballistic Armour, Thermoptic Camos and Tech Goggles in the inventory, +1 stack to each item type each upgrade.
There are more hazards and tougher enemies in the maps so Environmental Training will greatly help if you choose the skill.

-Medicine skill gives you a small max health increase to head and torso each upgrade, but is very expensive.

-Computer has a high initial cost (Trained) but then descending costs afterwards.
added a new feature that adds a chance of being detected whilst hacking, higher skill less chance to be detected (Credit: eshkrw, but with GMDX changes).
Along with descending costs this further encourages veterans to take computer skill past Trained.

-Heavy weapons skill is cheaper as there is less ammo to be found in the mod.
There are also hardly any LAWs to be found. Probably about 2-3 in the whole game.
Flamethrower/fire damage has no effect on MIB Mk2 & Grays.
Gep gun deals less damage and has more recoil.
On a positive note, heavy weapons inventory size is now 6 instead of 8.

-Low-tech skill is needed for melee combat VS tough enemies, rather than just using the Dragons Tooth sword which made Melee skills/augs completely useless. Dragons Tooth Sword now deals far less damage.
Throwing Knifes are far better and more common, low-tech skill is useful for those too.
Riotprod needs the damage boost for the tougher enemies late in the game also.
Skill point requirement costs reduced by about 20%

-Demolitions Skill increases the amount of grenades you can carry, untrained-trained-advanced-master 3-5-7-9 respectively. Detonation timer untrained-trained-advanced-master 0.5, 1, 2, 4 respectively. Costs 1000, 2000, 3000.

-Pistol & Rifle Skill Remain untouched, although the guns have alterations themselves.

-Tech and Lockpicking have slightly lowered cost requirements, less tools/pick are to be found in the maps, and lowered percentage boosts gained from the skill (10% 15% 25% 50%).

WEAPONS

-Smuggler's Custom Glock has many alterations to V1.
-Silenced Glock Inventoryname="Silenced Glock".
-Semi Auto now named CustomSniperRifle. Many stat alterations. Has custom skin.
-Gep Gun Further increased recoil and less damage.
-Dragons tooth Sword increased damage over V1.
-Mini Crossbow Damage increased.
-Increased the amount of Throwing knifes the player can carry by 5.
-Plasma Rifle ammo pickup ammount is now 8 instead of 12, as more enemies carry Plasma rifles.
-Sword now does double damage.
-Noise Level increase for most weapons (unsilenced weapons will alert enemies)
-Increased assualt gun damage, lowered recoil
-Baton Damage=10 (+3)
-Riot Prod clip size=2, but can have clip and reload mods
-Heavy weapons inventory size= 6 slots

AI

-Further increased vision for NPCs
-SecurityBot3 (the one with wheels/treads) Moves much faster, but has slightly less health.
-Grays and Mibs cannot be set alight.
-Dogs slightly more dangerous.
-Much, much more in the maps.

BUGS

Vanilla:

-Fixed inventory "stacking behind" glitch (Credit: Yuki of Shifter)
-Fixed the Vandenburg infinite Skill points Glitch (Credit: Yuki of Shifter)
-Fixed the Gary savage infinite Skill points Glitch.
-Fixed new game pistol skill downgrade skill points Glitch. (Credit: Yuki of Shifter)

GMDXv1:

-Fixed a minor BSP related issue on the Gas Station map.
-Fixed a Minor BSP related issue on the Airfield Helibase map.
-Fixed regular crashing when transitioning from the HongKong_HeliBase map to the WanChai_Market map.
-Restored the health of a couple MJ12 Commandos back to default.
-Fixed super speed of a NSF on liberty insland back to default (was an oversight).
-MJ12 Elite now spawn appropriate carcasses.
-Female NSF now make the appropriate sound when knocked out.
-Fixed an error with the combat music on the Hong Kong Storage map.

MISCELLANEOUS:

-drag n drop inventory system a la System Shock. Highlight and drag any item from your inventory to the side/out of your inventory then release to drop the item. (Credit: eshkrw)
-Drowning damage increased, and whilst drowning vision is blurry.

MAPS

There are many changes in the maps, but they are not detailed for spoiler reasons. Here is just one as an example:
At the 'Ton hotel ambush Paul now cowers instead of fights. Why? Well, he said he is in pain and cannot even climb out the window, so how can he run about whilst absorbing a hail of bullets?
This also presents a new challenge to the player as you have to fight them all ALONE. Your reward is obviously saving Paul, and a couple of the UNATCO troops have extra goodies. Your choice, as usual.

What do I think it will be? DXHR Expansion pack (or something similar).
What will it probably end up being? An April Fools joke.

Now -- announcing it a day early, building hype through facebook and the forums and then letting us down the day of would be just brutal. I have to admit, I really hope it doesn't go that route.

Even worse than that though, in my opinion, would be some sort of mobile phone or iPad game. Unless it was some sort of serious "killer app", the world just doesn't need (nor has it ever asked for) a mobile DX that isn't a remake of the original.

To be fair, they registered the trademark for this over a month ago. If it is an April fools joke, it is a very elaborate one. Much more so than most of the typical, "quick announcement for a ridiculous fake game, which uses a lot of footage from old games re-cut and edited".

Questions and hype have been surrounding this title for the last month or so - if it turns out to be a joke, there are going to be a lot of very upset people.

That said - I'm not getting excited about anything until Tuesday rolls around. End of story.

What Zakka said.


...Unless they're pulling a double scam: A lame april's fools joke today, followed by a proper announcement later this week. Now that would be cruel.

So I guess I'm a little hopeful?

Hey guys, just to confirm, this is NOT a movie - it is a game. Can't say anything more than that right now though.


I hope you are right. Otherwise it is a very mean thing to say on april fools day

That's what i'm keeping faith in.

If he's jumped the gun with lies, then damn, he's broken the creed of April 1st.

A stoning will be necessary.

Not really. The only part of it that's a joke is the idea that there's an announcement today. Nothing about it being an April Fool's joke implies that Human Defiance somehow doesn't exist. I don't know why you would assume that.

There is still hope: there's no reason to copyright ***** like that and Human Defiance name was copyrighted. I'll wait 'till tomorrow - they have entire day to actually make and announce a proper Deus Ex game. If they don't... well, I'm not buying an axe and a ticket to Montreal. I'm buying a chainsaw and a ticket to Montreal.

Well played EM, i'll admit it was funny. The good thing about this 8-bit game? It hopefully prevents you real life trolls from overusing a failed cinematic style in the game :lol:
Also where was the highlighting? No regen health either? BETTER choice & consequence? I may have faith in you guys yet. Although 2P co-op in DX, now I join the angry mob with chainsaws.

EDIT: Also you forgot support incentives- TONG RESCUE MISSION PART DEUX plus equipment pulled from the game. :p

I'll spread the word that more Deus Ex is in the works and hype it up, that's what you want right? Don't let me down now.

There's a playable demo available.

Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I'm thinking that if we get Deus Ex to 250k likes, we get an actual reveal?

I forgot how much I missed seeing JJB and JFD's pompous faces, and JFD's blurred out band t-shirts.

Also, Jesus. JJB really is loaded down with generic, terribly-placed tattoos.

Really though, great video. Game designers are generally not very good actors, but this was pretty damn good.
