Deus Ex fans will be happy to hear that Square Enix and its development subsidiary Eidos Montreal have just announced that the latest iteration of the popular franchise, ‘Deus Ex: The Fall,’ will be arriving in the App Store this Thursday, July 11.

The game will launch exclusively on the iPhone and iPad, and its story line will take place after ‘Deux Ex: The Icarus Effect’ novel, which acted as a prequel to the nanopunk/cyberpunk franchise. And yes, we have a gameplay trailer after the fold…

To go along with the launch announcement, Eidos Montreal is giving away free wallpapers and ringtones to celebrate the Deus Ex franchises “first ever outing on mobile devices.” And it says it’ll land on iOS first, but an Android version is coming.

The franchise has received universal critical and industry acclaim over the years, including being named the “Best PC Game of All Time” in PC Gamer’s Top 100 Games. And last year, Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Mac won an Apple Design Award.
