Square Enix launches Deus Ex Go for Android and iOS
This is the third ‘Go’ title that Square Enix launched for mobile devices. Following turn-based ‘Go’ versions of Hitman and Tomb Rider, the new title introduces the mobile gamer to the dark futuristic universe of Deus Ex.
In case you haven’t played any of the relatively buggy Deus Ex first-person shooters, the setting is a near future where mankind has taken a bit too fondly to genetic enhancement and cybernetic body augmentation. Taken to the extremes, these newfound passions have allowed regular humans to achieve superhuman powers and computer-like information processing power.
Both Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go felt like more than mobile cash cows for legendary gaming universes. The signature mechanic of the series is definitely new: users need to think out the plan of action and make the right decisions in order to reach their goal, as opposed to the action-first mechanics of the original games. Thankfully, though, Square Enix figured out a way to do this while still paying homage to the atmosphere of the original games.
Deus Ex GO is available now from both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. It is priced at $5, but also includes some in-app purchases.
