Book publisher Del Rey have announced that Deus Ex is going to be yet another game to receive a novel. The book is to be titled Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect and has been penned by James Swallow (a renowned sci fi author). The newly announced novel will be released next year, and will also be related to the next game in the series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which will be released (also next year) for Xbox 360 and PS3.

The book description: DEUS EX: THE ICARUS EFFECT is set in the complex and enthralling world of Deus Ex, a cyberpunk-style technological dystopia where all is not what it seems. In the not-so-distant future, the world is a place of great innovation and technological advancement… but also a place of chaos and conspiracy. New technologies push the limits of human potential, even while they threaten the very future of the world. And from the shadows, dark and secret powers are coming together to take control, intent on designs so large, so intricate, they will take decades to come to fruition. But when two unlikely heroes—Anna Kelso, a Secret Service agent, and Ben Saxon, a special-ops soldier—draw uncomfortably close to the truth, the choices they make here and now will alter the course of history… or usher in an age of darkness.

I’m a lover of books and the Deus Ex universe, thus I’m looking forward to the release of this in 2011!
