Remember Deus Ex: Human Revolution? That was good, wasn’t it? Perhaps you’re even old enough to remember the first game in the series, simply: Deus Ex. If you played that on your PC, way back in the year 2000 or in 2002 when it was released on the PlayStation 2, you might remember that it was also a top quality game.
Well, if PEGI is to be believed, that old classic is coming to a PlayStation 3 near you very soon. It will most likely be a re-release of the PS2 version, branded as a “classic” and punted onto the PSN Store without much fanfare. It may have been made before last year’s action RPG release but it actually occurs later in the universe’s timeline – Human Revolution was a prequel. For Deus Ex fans, old and new, it’s well worth a play through.
The best bit is that, again according to PEGI, it’s being released yesterday. Yeah, that’s probably just the date that PEGI got to rate it, digital releases being so subject to change. Still, if it’s ready for rating then we guess it must be ready for release. Hopefully we’ll be able to get onto the PSN soon and find out.
There was a second game in the Deus Ex series too, Invisible War. That only ever got a PC and Xbox release so it is, unfortunately, unlikely to make it onto the PSN in this way.
