Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Interview @ PS3 Center
PS3 Center interviewed Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Game Director, Jean-Francois Dugas. Here are a few snippets from the interview:
PCN: For people that are new to the game, Deus Ex has always been a relatively linear game, can we expect similar gameplay in Human Revolution or will we see more open world situations like in Fallout, or will it be more like Mass Effect?
JFD: I'd say that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is more open than Bioshock, but less than Fallout, so, it's an in-between. Depending on how you play it, if you take on additional quests, etc., it will make your experience even more expansive. Nevertheless, if you do the strict minimum, you're still in there for at least 20 to 25 hours.
PCN: It's important to note that this is a kind of prequel to Deus Ex, so it will be easy for those who've never played a Deus Ex before to get into the game. With that said, will we see any information regarding UNATCO and JC Denton and his brother?
JFD: The game happens about 25 years before the first one. It's not really a direct prequel to the original game per se. We have a brand new cast of characters and story, so, you don't have to have played the old games to make this one engaging; it stands on its own. Of course, there will be hints at the original game, but for those without experience with the Deus Ex franchise, it definitely won’t diminish their experience in any way.
