Deus Ex 3 to return to series’ roots
“We ultimately decided to focus more on the first game," said Jean Francois Dugas. "…In terms of being a Deus Ex game, we keep the core gameplay essence alive, which is a hybrid of action-RPG in which the core gameplay mechanics revolve around combat, stealth, hacking, and social aspects."
The Montreal-based dev team are also ensuring that Deus Ex 3's levels are more expansive than those in the second game – "think Hong Kong in Deus Ex 1," said Dugas.
Despite complaints from some hardcore Deus Ex fans over the direction of the third iteration, Dugas said that "on a lot of topics" he is on the "same page" as the fans, but added "except when they say 'just redo the first one with better textures!".
Deus Ex 3 is out on PS3, 360 and PC later in the year.
