Square Enix has released yet another dev diary, this time focusing on the various cities you can travel to in the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Detroit is the home of the augmentation revolution, an analogy to the rise of the automobile in the 20th century. Montreal is home to Picus, the leading media organization in the world (and also real-life home of developers Eidos Montreal). Hengsha, an island of Shanghai, features Tai Yong Medical, featured in last week's dev diary.
One of the more fascinating stats revealed in the video is the sheer amount of content created for the game. There are 100 different brands created for the game, in order to give an authentic feeling to the world. There are also over 1300 props so that the developer could fill the world with "clutter. Loads of crap everywhere." Apparently, the future isn't quite a squeaky clean place to live.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution launches on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 August 23.
