Well, looks like PC Zone was saving up its 200th issue for Deus Ex. It's the cover story in the latest edition, which has already landed in subscribers' mailboxes and hits newsstands on Oct. 9. The writeup also features the first screenshots of the game, which CVG scanned and uploaded (above). "Deus Ex 3's vision of the future sees holographic screens flicker atop ferries moving back and forth in front of the Shanghai skyline, now split into two layers with the rich on the top and the poor in perpetual twilight below," says PC Zone. The preview says Eidos Montreal promised a "powerful, layered" plot for the game, a prequel set in 2027. Eidos also said it's mindful of reaction to the second game in the series and promises that its mistakes won't be repeated. If you're not a subscriber, CVG has written up a pretty good digest of its high points. Deus Ex 3: First Details [CVG]
Why is evreyone reading "cover system" and thinking Gears? "stealth will now rely on a cover system" STEALTH.. as in you will need to be behind something for them not to see you.. and not just stick in some dark spot.
Right.. now that i got that off my chest. Auto-Heal, pro-active augmentations.. guns'a'blazing. In DE1 most of the augs were purely passive ones that increased your abilities as a character... not stuff that made you grow limbs and spider-walk across ceilings. And that was the fun of it.. it was a careful blend of augs and skills, and that free-world-in-a-box feeling that really made it what it was. I wont comment on DE2, but tbh, from what i've read there... i doubt they'll be sticking to the formula of the original.
