Something the whole team at Eidos-Montréal has been looking forward to finally arrived today as PAX East 2013 kicked off in Boston, bringing the first opportunity for fans to have a hands-on experience with Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut.
Square Enix’s presence at the event is unmissable, with a huge sprawling booth covering everything from Tomb Raider, Dead Island, Saint’s Row and Final Fantasy and everything in between, including of course, Deus Ex’s debut on the Wii U.
Doors opened at 10 AM and saw legions of convention-goers pour into the Center, overwhelming the space with excitement and noise. As the Square Enix sound systems boomed and the latest trailers played out on a multitude of flat screens, fans circled the space, the line zig-zagging back and forth while people waited eagerly to finally get controllers into their hands and try out the demos on show. Even though it was only the first day of the event, the crowd filled the massive Boston Convention Center to the brim – and the weekend is likely to draw even larger crowds.
For Deus Ex fans, Saturday brings even more fun and excitement with a trivia contest at 11:30 AM, followed by a cosplay meetup at 3:30 PM. Got some Deus Ex duds? Stop by and show them off!
