Infiltrate Your Way Through Deus Ex Go This Summer

Square Enix Montreal has announced a new entry in their mobile Go series: Deus Ex Go.

Similar to the studio's previous instalments based off Tomb Raider and Hitman, Deus Ex Go is a turn-based puzzle game. Playing as Adam Jensen, you make your way through a series of procedurally generated levels where you use augmentations and hacking to overcome obstacles. By hacking terminals, you can create new paths, disable turrets, and more. Timing your hacks and movements are an essential strategy, since guards can dismantle your hacking process. Similar to past Go games, you swipe in your preferred direction to move the main character.

The developer has announced that it has added a second team. There are two games in progress right now. One is in collaboration with a “new partner” and the other is in the concept phase.

Unfortunately, neither of these are Alan Wake. Remedy isn’t abandoning the author, though.
