Looks Like Next-Gen Deus Ex Will Get A Multiplayer Mode

Well, of course.

These days, it's exceedingly rare for a major new release to ship without a multiplayer option. This includes games that absolutely don't need a multiplayer function ('cough' God of War 'cough'), but whatever.

According to a new job listing at Eidos Montreal's website, it seems the new Deus Ex installment will feature an online mode of some kind. The developer is looking for an Online Programmer to specifically work on Deus Ex: Universe, the next-gen project that spans multiple titles and is coming to consoles and PC. The Online Programmer will implement online game features and build a suite of tools as well.

Yep, sounds like multiplayer is coming. It may be revealed when Square Enix announces "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," which isn't official but the company filed a trademark for that title last week.

I think the Next Deus Ex will have Passive Multiplayer like Demon SOuls.

Hope the Music stays the same

As long as more effort is put into this than what was put into the the fall. Granted it wasn't a full fledged sequel, but I hope eidos isn't losing their way since Thief was disappointing.

The Fall was a ten dollar tablet game, and for a ten dollar tablet game it was pretty excellent.

The game hasn't even been announced and you're already saying it's ruined the franchise? If you're a fan of the franchise I think you owe it to them to reserve judgement until you've actually played the game.

Nope. Don't need it. I cherish any single-player FPS I can get. Alas... if it must be, then I hope it is handled like the multiplayer in Mass Effect 3 - being a separate entity, that is.

I can actually imagine this being very interesting. Imagine if you have the Neo-Luddites rising up in rebellion against the biotech/nanotech corporations and you get to take a side in this civil war. One side would play very much like modern FPS design, though with gadgets that allow them to jam certain augmentations-perhaps they could also have other natural advantages, like parkour. The other side would be technologically advanced: able to leap off buildings, temporarily deploy shields, use their body as a weapon more effectively, but the use of their abilities would be limited by their batteries. It could create a really cool dynamic.

But I imagine that this means integrated online, and while that's not necessarily a bad idea, I just don't see how it would improve the core experience, if the game is anything like Human Revolution was.

If they made it into something completely different, like a mmo, then I think this might work as a one-off, a standalone release.

Heck I'd love to build a character in that universe and head out for missions, traversing a city brimming with life from a combo of NPCs and real players.

WOrst possible thing is if they just tack on a multiplayer mode onto a single player game. Let's hope that's not the case.

i still think you don't need multi most of the games i played as a kid growing up didn't have multiplayer and if u did it was on the same screen. and so i personally don't care too much because it depends of the game.

happy gaming =)
