Jean-Francois Dugas Talks Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Inspirations, Invisible War & Release Dates

Dan Webb

We've thrown a lot of Deus Ex content at you in the last few months. I mean, it wasn't enough that we did one monster preview on the bad boy at the beginning of Feb, but at the end of Feb, we threw an even meatier one at you to feast your eyes upon... It's okay, you can thank me later for that...

Today though, our attention turns from our opinions on the game to Jean-Francois Dugas, the Lead Game Designer,  and his opinions on our questions... it's an interview, see... that's how it works.

In the first part of this two part interview, we turn our attention to the more theoretical side of the game, touching upon inspirations for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dugas' opinions on Invisible War and what they took from it, whether they considered HD remakes of the originals, the fact that it's now got a release date and so much more. It's a corker!

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the concluding part where we focus on the game itself, touching upon choice, multiple endings, accessibility and... you guessed it... so much more!

  • Stop making me want this game even more!
  • should be out august 23rd! from what Dugas said at the pax east demo. I at least know that the game still needs time to work out the bugs with the enemy ai *The AI field of view was hilarious, you would practically be invisible to enemies while standing behind a box where he would have caught you turning around. Game is looking very legit with all the paths you can take to get through the levels. When I saw the demo the use of boxes reminded me of MGS even the tech in the game plus the third person over the shoulder stealth action.
  • sweet pre ordered aaugmented edition
  • I'm glad that they're devoting time to polishing it up before release. It could use some touching up, and with a whole four months left, I expect they'll make it a pure experience.
  • Good to see a release date. This one is high on my must play list.
  • If it's half as good as the first one I'll be very pleased.
