Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director's Cut

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director's Cut Launch Trailer Is Live

You have to hand it to Square Enix and Deus Ex developer Eidos Montreal – they received and accepted flak for the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution's boss battles, but they've also attempted to rectify the situation with the Director's Cut. The game is out, and its launch trailer is now live.

Not only have the boss battles been reworked to support different kinds of gameplay (like stealth, for example), but the Director's Cut also utilizes the Vita, Wii U GamePad, and SmartGlass as a second-screen interface, and the title includes the Missing Link DLC chapter, Tong's Rescue mission, and more.

FYI, here's our review of the original version of the game.

  • I hope more people will enjoy this game now. To me, it was already perfect. One of the best games I've ever played.
  • He didn't ask for this.

  • I bought the original day one and own all the DLC already. I'd love to update to this version but I'm not willing to pay almost full price for it again. Steam users are getting this update for about five dollars, but it seems console owners are getting snubbed on this one.
  • Cool! I always wanted to play this, but it slipped through the cracks on me. Still, I'll wait until it comes down in price. My game budget is already tied up for the time being...

  • I am glad to hear this is finally out! I played the original but I just couldn't finish it because I refused to use any non-lethal methods. I played the entire game up until there was a boss fight that required me to go in guns blazing. You hardcore Metal Gear Solid fans will understand-- once you make the decision to go all knock out, there is no compromise!!!
  • I picked it up just this morning. Can't wait to give it a try later on this week (too busy with things to do it now). It's awesome that it's only $5 for people who already own the original and Missing Link DLC--great deal.
  • I can't wait to pick this up on the Wii U!  I've been waiting all year!  

    *grits teeth* even though the previously Wii U exclusive was probably delayed to release simultaneously on PS3 & Xbox as well...  I'll get over it though.

  • More hubs is all I asked for..and they actually delivered.

  • It's looking even more amazing than before.

  • I was very content with the original.  I may have to check this out.  I replayed this game three times and just admired it each and every time.

  • It's out? Awesome! I'll get it as so as I beat a few games!

  • I already bought the game and Missing link DLC at release and Square Enix want me to pay an extra EUR 5 / USD 7 for a patched version?

    And publishers wonder why online piracy is thriving?...

  • I just picked this up on steam for $5 and it is dope (i had it beforehand ;-)

  • I Played it. I Passed it. The original was so much better. Simple but better!
