The latest Deus Ex will finally arrive in a couple of weeks, and each new piece of media is encouraging.
For instance, take this new "Social" Trailer, which focuses on the fourth aspect of gameplay; there's combat, stealth, hacking, and social, and the latter really adds another piece of depth; another role-playing element. Basically, locating and interacting with characters might change how you approach a certain situation. Maybe they'll help you out with a valuable piece of information, or assist in some other way.
It's very cool, and one of the main reasons we're interested in Human Revolution . This series was about choice well before "choice and freedom" became an industry staple in multiple genres. Personally, I still think I'm going to try the stealth approach for many of the objectives but who knows? Brute strength can be fun, too…
