Remember the first/third-person open world action-adventure role-play game, Deus Ex: The Human Revolution? That would be definitely a lame question as games like those are never meant to be forgotten. You will be delighted to know that Eidos Montreal just recently announced the engine to be used in the sequel, Deus Ex: The Universe, i.e. the Dawn Engine.
The Dawn Engine is heavily based on the Glacier Engine model that was adopted in Hitman Absolution. The above screenshot that you see is a fine example exhibiting a glimpse of the graphics engine. “Our ambition is to build upon and improve both the visual and immersive artistry in our games, whilst also strengthening both the gameplay and storytelling experiences we strive to create”, said the developer.
“Deus Ex: Universe is the name we are giving to the fictional world and the rich lore we are creating for it, which will of course include core games, as well as any other projects that will help bring the world of Deus Ex to life. We won’t go into too much detail for now, but what we envision is for our projects to have meaningful ties to one another, in order for them to strengthen and deepen your experience within this Universe”, as said by Eidos Montreal.
No release date has been confirmed yet for the game. Stay tuned for more updates!
