The next Deus Ex game, now in development at Eidos Montreal, will be dark, glowing with gold light and, occasionally, feature a hint of seafoam green. We know this by looking at “new” screenshots of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
These purportedly new shots of the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 game due next year are not completely fresh. We’ve seen protagonist Adam Jensen primed to stab guards in the back before, as well as that hacking screen. But for the casual Deus Ex: Human Revolution follower, they’re all good examples of the game’s cyber-Renaissance aesthetic.
They’re also ideal for judging whether Jensen looks like a douchebag or not, something Deus Ex’s new creators were trying to avoid.
