My iPad is augmented: Deus Ex The Fall is an iOS shooter

Auto-shades. I didn't ask for this.

My interest was piqued by yesterday's reveal of Deus Ex: The Fall, albeit the PC gaming side of my brain, not the "go write this up for PT" side of my brain. The five-second trailer that Eidos posted yesterday redefined the gameplay-free teaser trailer and gave us no reason to suspect that The Fall would be anything other than a new PC/console game set in the Deus Ex prequel universe established by 2011's Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Incorrect! Deus Ex The Fall is an "RPG shooter" coming to iPhone and iPad, and it's coming this summer, says Mark Brown at Pocket Gamer.

I have yet to meet a touchscreen shooter that wasn't a ridiculous boondoogle, but the promise of getting to play around in sepia-toned Neo-Renaissance world of Deus Ex will give us a reason to give The Fall a chance. Seems like a real missed opportunity to make a Deus Ex tactical game, but hey, what do I know?
