Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Building a Narrative

Submitted by on Sunday, 10 July 20112 Comments

As the medium of video games evolves, story elements and player motivation carry an ever-increasing amount of weight in the overall gameplay experience.

Take a look at what Eidos Montreal has in store for their much anticipated prequel, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

The forthcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution is set in Detroit, Michigan in the not too distant future.

The downfall of the motor city in recent years has been well documented. Rampant inefficiency in the American automotive industry has sent Detroitians scrambling for a new enterprise that could reinvigorate their city. It’s a good bet that the people of Detroit did not count on mechanical augmentation to serve as the city’s financial beacon of prosperity.

The proliferation of augmentations however does not come without strife. 2027 Detroit is a city divided amongst factions that support mechanical augmentation as a vehicle to improve the human condition and those that see it as a sort of Frankensteinian invasion of free will.

This is the canvas on which our protagonist Adam Jensen will paint his vengeance.

We’ve still got a bit of waiting to do before we can dive into Deus Ex: Human Revolution but remember to look for it on store shelves on August 23rd in the US and a few days later on the 26th in Europe.
