"Deus Ex": A Cybernetically Enhanced Security Operative

Collecting the 6-issue DC Comics' miniseries, "Deus Ex" will be available August 3, 2011, written by Robbie Morrison and illustrated by Trevor Hairsine, Sergio Sandoval, with a cover by Jim Murray, adapting the "Deus Ex" video game franchise from Eidos Interactive:

"...'Adam Jensen' is a cybernetically enhanced security operative for the powerful 'Sarif Industries', in a future where biological enhancements have become commonplace...but fanatically opposed by many. While recovering the kidnapped niece of the founder of the company, Jensen uncovers a mystery that goes all the way back to his fully human 'SWAT' origins in Detroit – and an adventure of violence and betrayal that'll span the globe begins..."

The original "Deus Ex", cyberpunk-themed action game developed by Ion Storm Inc., published by Eidos Interactive in 2000, combines gameplay elements of first-person shooters with those of traditional role-playing video games.

Set in a dystopian world of 2052, the plot follows rookie 'United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition' agent 'JC Denton', as he sets out to combat terrorist forces, which become prevalent in a world slipping further into chaos. Denton soon becomes entangled in a deep and ancient conspiracy, encountering organizations the likes of 'Majestic 12', the 'Illuminati' and the ''Hong Kong Triads throughout his journey.

Eidos Montreal will deliver a new "Deus Ex" game August 2012.
