It's been seven long years since Deus Ex: Invisible War delivered ?The Future War on Terror? to gamers. Thankfully, Eidos Montreal Lead Writer Mary DeMarle didn't test our knowledge of the previous two games and explained to us in a video interview that you don't need to be fully versed in the series' deep Sci-Fi history. That's because Eidos Montreal doesn't consider the game to be a prequel. It just happens to take place in the Deus Ex universe 25 years before the first title.
Set in 2027, Deus Ex: Human Revolution features a new plot and fresh characters, starting with Adam Jensen. Players control this chief security specialist as he attempts to figure out who was behind an attack on the BioTech firm he was protecting, resulting in him having to become ?mechanically enhanced? ? not by choice.
