The lights are on
Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal have finally announced a release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut.
The game was initially announced as a Wii U exclusive, but has since broadened out to include the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The Director's Cut comes out on October 22, and includes added functionality via the Wii U GamePad, SmartGlass, and the Vita, among other new features.

Our Take:It was originally thought that the Wii U director's cut would take advantage of that system's launch window, but obviously the release date got pushed out to encompass the other systems. It will be interesting to see if being so close to the holiday season will help or hurt the game's sales.

I already own HR, so if this can come as a DLC upgrade without me having to pay full price I'd gladly get it. If not, I'll have to wait for a particularly cheap Steam sale, but man do I want it!
Finally. I've been waiting to play this game since they had a release date set for last March. Better late than never, I suppose.
I am going to buy this just to support the Wii U's third party sales. And because I haven't played Deus Ex yet.
Either way, I'm getting this.
looks like ill trade the regular version in and get this instead cuz i have yet to play it past the prologue
i'm sure anyone who wanted to play it has it by now .. i mean its been just over 2 years , prices already dropped
This is probably the only franchise from Square Enix that I am excited about. The rest are fun games but are not on my radar till the reviews are out.
That being said, looking at this directors cut, besides the boss fights and the DLC, the game is exactly the same. The insta hack devices they are talking about existed in the PC version of the game already. Not sure why it was taken off the console version or was it a preorder bonus?
Only thing I ever got out of it was knocking people out,mid conversation.And all because I pressed square on accident while I spoke to that undercover hooker cop.Was the funniest sh!t when it happened.
I will buy this.
Letitia will be twice as racist in the Director's Cut.
This game I have played soo many times and loved it each and every time. it is really nice to do another complete run through and then play the DLC. it ties in rather nicely.
Well this release date pretty much snuck up on us.
Wish I knew what was included in the directors cut. I already beat the game
I just perused Amazon for 5 dollar versions of this games original! Why would I drop 60 bucks on this now. It is now considered an old game!
