While I loved the original cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, there were definitely some issues with the game — namely, the boss battles. Apparently, Eidos and Square Enix decided to listen to fans on this one and improve that aspect of the game in addition to modifying some other features like graphics and extra missions in the recently released Director’s Cut.
Now, on to the really exciting part. If you own Deus Ex: HR on Steam, then you can upgrade for just $10, but wait, there’s more. If, like me, you already own the original release and the badass DLC, The Missing Link, you can upgrade for a paltry $5! Yes, you heard me correctly, FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS, so why are you still reading this?
Another win for PC gamers in my book. Check below for the full details straight from our old pals at Square Enix.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut has been fully augmented to include Tongs’s Rescue mission and the entire Missing Link chapter which have been integrated seamlessly into the narrative flow as well as all of the original pre-order and bonus weapons. Fan features like the 45 minute “making of” video, over 8 hours of developer commentary, the official strategy guide, and New Game+ have also been added to the Director’s Cut.
Boss fights have been completely overhauled and redesigned with new maps and mechanics to support each one of the gameplay pillars: Action, Stealth, and Hacking. Major enhancements have also been made to the game including a rebalanced energy system, updated enemy A.I., and striking visual improvements which make this edition the best looking and most immersive Deus Ex experience available.
