Similar to Ubisoft’s Rayman Legends, Square Enix and Eidos Montréal are changing Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut from an exclusive title to a multiplatform release.
Originally scheduled only for Wii U, Human Revolution – Director’s Cut is an enhanced re-release of 2011’s acclaimed action-stealth title Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the third entry in the Deus Ex series. The Director’s Cut features numerous additions and changes over the original release of the game, including:
- Altered boss battles to allow for the same freedom of accomplishing objectives seen in the rest of the game
- Tong’s Rescue and The Missing Link add-ons included on-disc and completely integrated into the main game
- A New Game+ mode available after completing the story
- A Half-Life 2-esque developer commentary track that can be played over the game itself
- A strategy guide viewable from the game’s pause menu
- Improved AI, game balancing, and visuals
– The option of moving the HUD, menus, and hacking interface to a secondary screen depending on the platform: the GamePad on Wii U, a mobile phone or tablet on Xbox 360 via Xbox SmartGlass, or a PlayStation Vita on PlayStation 3
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut releases later this year on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac. The game is being developed by both original developer Eidos Montréal and Australian team Straight Right, who also ported BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 to Wii U last year.
