Given the fact that Deus Ex: Human Revolution hit the streets in the fall of 2011, it might seem a little unusual that it gets a piece of DLC two year’s later, but I’m going to tell you something: It’s even weirder that we have the Wii U to thank. Yes, really.
When Ubisoft announced the ‘Director’s Cut’ version of the game for Wii U, it called it the “ultimate edition of the game“. Almost immediately, many fans shouted at their monitors, tore their augmentations out, and shouted, “WTF?“. Clearly, there was no way the Director’s Cut was going to remain a Wii U exclusive. Thankfully, that’s just the case.
The thing I am looking forward to most with this game upgrade is the ability to begin the game over for a second playthrough retaining each and every one of your augmentations. I get excited just thinking of how much fun that could be – you really would feel like the ultimate bad ass.
Other perks include some graphics upgrades that hit The Missing Link DLC, and the ability to take on the now infamous boss battle without having to use lethal force (a point that Brett complained about in his review).
For those who own the base game already, you can upgrade to the Director’s Cut for $9.99; If you own the game and the Missing Link DLC, your upgrade price will be $4.99. Finally, if you don’t own any of the game, you can score the entire thing for $19.99. For those curious, the Director’s Cut does include both of the launch equipment DLCs.
October 22: Be ready for it.
