The newest Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off its ‘stunning world’ and they aren’t wrong… the world looks incredible and makes me giddy with excitement to see this running on an Xbox One X. Not to get ahead of myself, I got serious Tomb Raider chills from watching this – I’m talking the original game from the days of the first PlayStation console.
Vast vistas, lush environments and Lara standing at the base of an imposing piece of ancient machinery makes for all the ingredients that made the original game so damn good. I hope that this third title in the new look series can finally hold a torch to what made Tomb Raider so good.
System Rift is the first piece of story DLC to hit Deus Ex Mankind Divided, with a second one also planned for release.
The DLC has Adam team up with Frank Pritchard, a character from the first title, who calls in a favour owed – although by helping Pritchard – Adam may be able to get one step closer in uncovering the identity of the Illuminati, a mysterious group that has been watching Adam from the shadows.
Square Enix and Eidos would like to know your thoughts on their proposed content for the Collector’s Edition of Deus Ex Mankind Divided.
There are ten options to choose from – like a lunchbox, similar to the Fallout 3 Collector’s Edition, or a material tattoo sleeve so you too can have a bionic arm. You can select the three that you like the most (in order of preference) then wait to see which ones make the final cut!
Eidos Montreal is said to be at work on a new (as yet unannounced) third-person action-adventure game that will also be released on Xbox One. This is according to the LinkedIn profiles of various employees who have been slaving away at the development since November 2013 following the completion of THIEF.
So far two different members of the development team at the Eidos Montreal studio have updated their LinkedIn profiles to include mentions of this unannounced game. Both the senior game designer and level artist started work on the title since November 2013 as confirmed by those two dev’s. For the record, Eidos Montreal are currently developing a next-gen Deus Ex title and will release THIEF next month, but the new development is unrelated – nothing “official” has yet been announced.
We’ll keep you updated in due course and keeping everything including our balls crossed this is not Kane & Lynch goes next-gen!
A story on 360Magazine this morning reveals that Eidos does indeed intend to continue the Deus Ex franchise on Xbox One.
In a chat with 360Magazine, Studio Head David Anfossi said the following:
“For now, I hope you are excited about the future of this game that we love so much. Deus Ex is coming to next-gen, it’s early so don’t expect to hear much more from us just yet, but I wanted you to know.”
With only the above piece of concept art to show, there is an awful lot left for us to ponder and ask questions about. I for one am extremely excited and will make sure we bring you all the updates over the coming weeks and months.
Eidos Montréal, has confirmed that Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut, is no longer a Wii U exclusive and will additionally launch on the Xbox 360 later this year. This enhanced version of the original now offers a full slate of second screen features for SmartGlass, overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and combat, improved AI, over 8 hours of developer commentary, and striking visual improvements.
Tongs’s Rescue mission and the entire Missing Link chapter have been integrated seamlessly into the narrative flow of the Director’s Cut also. Defined as the “Ultimate” edition, we’ll keep you updated when a launch date has been announced.
