Yesterday’s special Deus Ex: Human Revolution message arrived as expected, but its contents are yet to be deciphered.

The message exhorts players to visit the game’s official website for updates, although the site appears unchanged. However, the message was accompanied by a string of what appears to be some kind of code:


Apparently all users have received the same code, but Blue’s News reports some saw this follow up, which may be a key of some kind:

5 – / ! f / f q / x c / q y / d 3 / ? x / t $ / j #

We haven’t turned up any reports of the message being cracked yet. Go, Internet Massive! resolve this fiendish puzzle.
