Talk Your Way Out of a Boss Fight in Deus Ex: Human Revolution – ‘Social’ VideoPosted 5:31 pm on Monday, August 8th, 2011 by Ryan Southard
There are so many ways to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution, they figured, heck, why not just allow people to talk their way through a boss fight too? Yes, that does happen. In the video below it’s explained that there are “social boss fights”, during which players will have to figure out how to properly talk an opponent out of doing something; in this case that “something” is shooting a hostage in the head, and we certainly can’t have that.
After pausing the video, it became clearer as to how your augmentations might help you to understand people. In the picture above, we can see that this guy is aggressive, excitable, and insecure. There’s even a little psychological profile for him. So, you can’t read people’s minds, but you’re given enough information that you can make logical decisions. You can even tell how persuasive you’re being. I kinda’ like this system.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be available on August 23rd for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Here’s the official “Social” video:
