A new book based on the Deus Ex universe from Ballantine Books’ Del Ray imprint has been announced. Set to release in 2011, Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect will be penned by James Swallow (Doctor Who, Stargate, Killzone 2) and follow the cyberpunk-styled adventure of agent Anna Kelso and special-ops soldier Ben Saxon as they investigate the secret powers behind mankind’s greatest technologies.
The official site for the next entry in the Deus Ex series proper, Human Revolution, linked below, will reveal more details about Icarus Effect in the upcoming months.
DEUS EX: THE ICARUS EFFECT is set in the complex and enthralling world of Deus Ex, a cyberpunk-style technological dystopia where all is not what it seems. In the not-so-distant future, the world is a place of great innovation and technological advancement… but also a place of chaos and conspiracy. New technologies push the limits of human potential, even while they threaten the very future of the world. And from the shadows, dark and secret powers are coming together to take control, intent on designs so large, so intricate, they will take decades to come to fruition. But when two unlikely heroes—Anna Kelso, a Secret Service agent, and Ben Saxon, a special-ops soldier—draw uncomfortably close to the truth, the choices they make here and now will alter the course of history… or usher in an age of darkness.
