Deus Ex: Human Revolution - News Roundup

by Aries100, 2011-06-22 17:06:24

A few newsbits for this game have surfaced, first is the ESRB rating Mature, then we have a fanpowered Q&A, and lastly there is a competetion in which, if you have an iOS device, you can scan QR codes and win something.

The ESRB Mature rating first - a sample:

Rating summary: This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of Adam Jensen, an ex-cop who must uncover the truth behind a cybernetics company's attack. Players complete mission-based objectives to increase their character's skills (e.g., stealth, strength) and advance the main storyline. Players use pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, and explosives to kill a variety of human enemies (e.g., soldiers, police officers, gang members, drug dealers). Players can also use stealth attacks (e.g., choking, electrocution) to dispatch enemies at close range.

The content descriptors are

Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol

Then the fan-powered Q&A where the devs from Eidos Montreal answered question from
fans on this site - a sample:

the first deus ex didn't shy away from explicitely going into real world conspiracy theories (ones that are prominent even today), will this game be equally as topical and relevant to the 'conspiracy theories' floating around today?

The Great JF says:

Albeit the fact that our game is fictional I hope that it can convey some of those aspects for those who are looking for it.

And then the news about the competition. 

In order to join the DXHR QR MISSIONS Scavenger Hunt, fans should visit the App store on their iOS device.  The first code is already available in the exclusive content section of the game’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/DeusEx). New codes will be released every week for the next seven weeks.

So, How Does It Work?
Fans should visit the App store to download the App (DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION QR MISSIONS) for their iOS device and register for the DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION QR MISSIONS.
