Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut No Longer Exclusive to Wii U


Apparently enough fans of the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution screamed at Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal for announcing the Director’s Cut upgrade only for Wii U that they have now decided to make the game’s “definitive version” available for all platforms. That includes Wii U, PC, Mac, PS3, and Xbox 360.

“After our Director’s Cut announcement we received an overwhelming response from the community asking us to bring this ultimate edition of HUMAN REVOLUTION to other platforms,” said Stéphane D’Astous, General Manager of Eidos-Montréal. “We’re thrilled to accommodate that request. We can now say with pleasure, ‘You asked for this!’”

The Director’s Cut augmentations include overhauled boss fighters, enhanced AI, refined gameplay, updated graphics, over 8 hours of developer commentary, and seamless integration of the Tongs’s Rescue mission and the entire Missing Link chapter into the flow of the main storyline. For anyone wondering how the Wii U GamePad neural hub system will be adapted to the other platforms, Square Enix has confirmed that the touchscreen interface and second screen features will be supported via SmartGlass for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Vita interconnectivity with PS3.
