Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut - oprainfall

Square Enix has finally announced the release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut. It will be released on October 22 for the Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the PC. Unfortunately for fans hoping to play it on the Mac, they will have to wait a little longer for their chance.

This Director’s Cut will be a little bit more than the nigh-obligatory Game of the Year addition that most triple-A games receive down the line. The game’s story is slightly altered in places to accommodate the DLC side stories. Instead of accessing them at the main menu, you will encounter the DLC content within the game as part of the game’s central storyline. The bosses have also been altered in a major way. The original game only afforded one way to defeat them: brute force. In Director’s Cut, the bosses and the area they are in have been modified to give players  multiple ways to deal with them. Some battles can be done without firing a shot. Other tweaks include improved AI and improved graphics.

Taking a page out of Valve’s playbook, the developers have added developer commentary to the game world. As opposed to going to a menu and playing a video or audio file, a unique icon is sprinkled throughout the game world and can be activated by walking up to it. They have also included a more traditional “Making Of” documentary as well.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    Back when this was a Wii U exclusive releasing in May, I was interested enough to buy this and support 3rd parties. But it was delayed, I’ve got Watch Dogs coming up for my 3rd party gaming, and now it launches the same day as a game I want for its own sake. So no thank you any more.

      Yeah, you never know Deus Ex Directors Cut, could be on the PSN store for the PS4.

  • James Best

    Jeez, why are there so many Wii U games releasing at the end of October? You’ve got Batman, Sonic, and now Deus Ex? When the year began, the problem was the Wii U had barely any games, now it practically has too many!

    • Johnson Cameron

      This is true, but you have to remember Nintendo did not have everything ready on launch day, which ended up pushing every game back for a year or six months. Still good to see the WII-U get some games on it’s platform.

    I loved this game so I might just have to get it. I’ll go ahead and support it on wii u too!

    That was weird, last night I just decided to check if a release date had been given, since its been months with no word from it, and suddenly it has a release date.
