Deus Ex: The Fall Isn’t Friendly With Jailbroken Devices, Disables Guns

Deus Ex: The Fall is now out on iOS devices and some people have found out that the shooting is disabled if you run the game on a jailbroken device.

The game detects whether you have a default or jailbroken device, and this is sort of a weird way to impose restriction on people getting the game for free.

You can finish the game using stealth and without firing a single shot so that’s a good thing in the end, since that’s the way Deus Ex games are meant to be played. The tranquilizer gun will also be disabled so you need to find other ways to do stealthy takedowns.

This is the message you get if you have a jailbroken device.

We have not confirmed the same and this is just based on a Reddit user’s experience. We will keep you updated once we hear more on this from Square Enix, the publishers of the game.
