Deus Ex: Human Revolution Receives Wii U Augmentation


Eidos Montreal’s superb role-playing shooter is now in development for the Wii U console, Square Enix confirmed today.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will be the “definitive version” of the cyberpunk action-RPG that first wowed many PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers back in 2011. The Wii U GamePad becomes the game’s new Neural hub, where players will use the touch-screen for hacking, sniping, map interaction, augmentation control and other features. Miiverse integration will also be a strong component of the game, in addition to in-game guides and developer commentaries.

But it’s not all about shiny Wii U bells and whistles; improvements are being made to the core game as well. Eidos is enhancing the combat mechanics, refining overall gameplay balance, upgrading AI routines and revamping the oft-criticized boss fights. The Director’s Cut will additionally feature New Game+, the Tong’s Rescue bonus mission, and the Missing Link DLC chapter.

Square Enix has not announced a ship date yet, but says that the game is “coming soon.” Try it out at PAX East in Boston this weekend if you’re in the neighborhood.
