Deus Ex: Human Revolution info

Computer and Video Games have a short piece on what we might expect from the upcoming Deus Ex:


The mind-blowing Deus Ex: Human Revolution reveal trailer took a development sideteam an entire year to craft, costing untold millions.

Before work on the game began, the 120-strong main crew spent twelve months simply playing previous titles in the series (yep, even Project: Snowblind, bless 'em) to immerse themselves in the mythology of Warren Spector's sci-fi opus.
It looks beautiful, but every potential shootout is qualified with the opportunity to sneak in via a back entrance, or sweet talk/strong-arm your way past a guardian. Eidos are taking this ethos so seriously that - boss encounters apart - you'll apparently be able to finish the whole game without taking a single life.
Conversation has been beefed up, the visuals now on a level where you can judge the authenticity of a suspect by his body language alone.
But the time for eulogising about this masterly creation is almost over. With a release date of early April on the cards, Eidos have been noticeably languid in letting us get hands-on with their baby, preferring to illustrate its complexities via controlled demos.

There it is: The game is doomed to fail. There are far too many cooks in that kitchen and they've spent all their time baking cakes that look pretty but can't be eaten.
