As if there wasn’t enough buzz around the
upcoming release of Deus Ex: Human
Revolution, Eidos Montreal have released another trailer which firmly
emphasises the multi-layered approach to the game that players will be
encouraged to take.
The trailer (Which can be seen below) emphasises that there are four pillars of gameplay;
combat, stealth, hacking and social.
Most situations in the game can be resolved using one of those pillars,
and you’re not restricted in your choice; you can sneak past a big mechanical
enemy, you can run in all guns blazing, or you can get to a nearby control
console and hack into that, turning the robot against the other enemies.
It doesn’t sound that new and exciting on the
surface (the first Deus Ex allowed a
similar level of choice, for example) but based on what we’ve seen of the game
so far, it looks as though Human
Revolution is determined to blend those four pillars of gameplay together
and to force the player to consider carefully how they will approach each
challenge, making the game much more intense and personal- just as the original
Deus Ex was for me and many other
Check out the trailer above and let us know
what you think- will you be going in all guns blazing or sneaking around like a Snake?
