Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Eidos
Square Enix has revealed Eidos Montreal’s follow-up to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The sequel is in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and will take place two years after the events in Human Revolution, with humanity split between those with and those without augments. Players will once again take on the role of Adam Jensen, who is now an anti-terrorist agent with even more powerful augments, as he tries to navigate and uncover the mysterious forces who are attempting to manipulate the divided public.
Square Enix is offering three Eidos IPs for independent developers to try their hand at through the studio’s Collective platform. Anachronox, Fear Effect, and Gex are all on offer for developers to submit game ideas, and new project pitch submissions have also been reopened. A previous submission, Goetia, a point-and-click adventure from French developer Sushee, recently passed its Kickstarter goal with 48 hours to go. According to the release, it was the latest campaign’s success that inspired them to open up the Eidos IPs.
Artists spanning a range of mediums—street art, visual, graffiti, and photography—are coming together on July 28 in New York City’s Wooster Street Social Club to show off original material based off of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The exhibit will run for two weeks and follow a theme based on the game’s world, which is “currently at its turning point due to cybernetic augmentation.” Each artist will create either a pro-augmentation or anti-augmentation poster-style image inspired by in-game factions. Proceeds from sales will also be used to “supporting further education in the arts.” A full list of the artists whose works will be on display is provided below.
