Remember the outcry over Deus Ex: The Fall, the mobile side story to Square Enix's hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution? The game just hit Steam, so everyone can be happy now. Yay!
After yesterday's uproar over new mobile game Deus Ex: The Fall disabling guns on jailbroken iOS devices, Eidos parent Square Enix has announced plans to remove the function via an upcoming game update, apologizing for not being clear about the restriction up front.
Released yesterday for iOS Deus Ex: The Fall is all about giving the player options, unless that player is attempting to run the game on a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, in which case it removes one of the most important abilities in the game — pulling the trigger.
"We didn't ask for this!" came the cry of PC and console fans, angry with the revelation that the next Deus Ex game would be an episodic mobile adventure. They don't want to play it on their phones or tablets. It's a pity, really, because The Fall is nearly every bit the Deus Ex game Human Revolution is.
Deus Ex: The Fall, the first mobile installment of Eidos-Montréal's cyberpunk-themed action RPG series, will be available on iOS devices this Thursday for $6.99.
It might not be on the platform you wanted it to be on, but you have to admit Deus Ex: The Fall looks pretty sweet.
