Deus Ex: The Fall

Deus Ex: The Fall has been dramatically optimized for the PC and will only set you back a tenner at launch.

Yesterday's report that the previously tablet-exclusive Deus Ex: The Fall is on the way to the PC has been confirmed, as a full and proper entry for the game is now up on Steam. The game page also answers a number of questions that have been asked about the game and how it will handle the transition from mobile to desktop.

First and foremost, there will be no microtransactions: In-game purchase options have been removed and the game economy has been rebalanced to compensate. Auto-targeting has also been cut, the aiming reticule has been changed, cover options have been revised to match Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the AI has been tweaked. It will support mouse and keyboard control schemes as well as game controllers, and video options allowing the adjustment of resolution, anti-aliasing and Vsync settings have also been incorporated. On the Steam-specific side of the coin, Deus Ex: The Fall will offer trading cards, badges and 28 achievements.

For those wondering if they have what it takes to run an iPad game on their PC, we also have system requirements:


  • OS: Windows XP SP2
  • Processor: 2GHz dual core
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card
  • DirectX: Version 9.0c
  • Hard Drive: 4 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Integrated audio interface


  • OS: Windows 7 SP 1
  • Processor: Quad Core 2.66GHz CPU Intel or AMD
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce 500 Series or Radeon 7000 Series, 1 GB Graphics memory
  • DirectX: Version 9.0c
  • Hard Drive: 4 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Integrated audio interface

Deus Ex: The Fall will launch on Steam on March 25 and is available for pre-purchase now at a cost of $9.99, which includes a copy of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition. That sounds not too shabby at all.
