“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!’”Bringing a variety of new content including overhauled boss battles, the Director's Cut of the amber-drenched world of Adam Jensen will also be launching with second-screen functionality similar to the Wii U's GamePad. Both Xbox SmartGlass and PS Vita will be gaining support for a full slate of features to utilise off-screen "that make the touchscreen interface Adam Jensen’s primary neural hub enhancement."
No specific release date has yet been given for the new Deus Ex: Human Revolution version, however it is expected to be available later this year.

The game's blurb claims it will introduce: "a multitude of improvements, features and additional content that bring this already critically-acclaimed adventure to whole new levels", and briefly notes a new console specific mechanic: "Tap into the Wii U's GamePad true potential: Adam Jensen's newest augmentation, the Neural Hub, offers an immersive and empowering experience, right at the tips of your fingers".
May 7th 2013 was listed as the release date before the page disappeared, with a price point of US$49.99.

Australian Classification Board database, a "modified" version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution was rated MA15+ on March 1st 2013.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was classified MA15+ back in May 2011, flagged with the same "Strong themes, violence and sexual references" consumer advice, and was released on August 25th 2011 (AusGamers 9.2/10). The Australian version wasn't censored or distinct from international releases, so its unclear why the game would be taking another pass through the classification process.
Our local Square Enix reps would only tell us that they "can't make any comment at this time", so we're not really sure what to make of this one. It seems a little late for a Game of the Year/bundled DLC re-release, and the game only had one content expansion, The Missing Link.
Could it be a Wii U or PlayStation Vita port perhaps? Either of those would call for modification to take advantage of their unique hardware. We'll let you know if we find out more.

Derrickson is known for the acclaimed horror films Sinister, and The Exocisim of Emily Rose, and the less-loved Keanu Reeves-staring sci-fi The Day the Earth Stood Still, and will be penning the Deus Ex script with Sinister co-writer Robert Cargill (via: Deadline).
“Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” said Derrickson. “By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie. Cargill and I can’t wait to bring it to the big screen.”Perhaps there's hope for the future of videogame to film adaptations after all.

Siliconera has outed the first DLC release for Deus Ex: Human Revolution (AusGamers Review 9.2/10) called "The Missing Link". This was by no means an easy task though, with the Deus Ex community on the whole discovering a code on the game's main menu, which then lead them to 13311TOWER.COM. Here, on a static image, clicking on the pyramid eye post-it note, prompted a user/pass login and the community went to work on cracking it.
Eventually they were also lead to yet another site which actually contained GPS coordinate for Uluru, Australia. The username and password log-in also gave them an image of Adam Jensen apparently unconscious in some sort of sarcophagus with the words "What is the Missing Link"? sprawled in front of him.
Finally, it turns out after all of this, a community member accidentally stumbled upon an RSS feed outlining what is definitely DLC called "The Missing Link" that read: "The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen’s quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all."
After this discovery, producer David Anfossi also revealed that the content sees Jensen aboard a freighter and missing his augmentations. He's also being tortured by his captors and will need to replace his abilities and explore new environments in order to survive.
The team have now officially announced the DLC, which is due to arrive in October.

"Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fictional story which reflects the diversity of the world's future population by featuring characters of various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds," the publisher said. "While these characters are meant to portray people living in the year 2027, it has never been our intention to represent any particular ethnic group in a negative light."
Check out the embedded example below - what do you think? Too far? Or overreaction?
Thanks Industry Gamers.

first announcing that Deus Ex: Human Revolution would be region locked on the PC, Square Enix have quickly backed down and decided that it wouldn't be a such a good idea after all.
We’re aware of some discussion regarding the planned region-locking of boxed PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and after careful review we have decided not to implement this in the UK/Europe/US/AUS. Please note, this plan only related to PC boxed games, and not digital or console editions.After this broke news earlier this week, ozgameshop.com announced they'd offer up a refund for anyone who'd bought Deus Ex from them. With the lock not going ahead, they still plan to honour this offer and will be giving people refunds if they want them:
We have just been informed that Deus Ex Human Revolution will NOT be region-locked and WILL indeed work in Australia. This announcement was made on Eidos’ offical forums: http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=119397.

The social aspect of the game is important for completing missions as it may help with vital information or in recruiting someone to your cause. It's also very important for those of you looking for an expanded gameplay experience, as the social pillar is how you'll discover your side-quests. As for hacking, it's fairly self-explanatory, but another cool gameplay pillar nonetheless with a surprisinging amount of depth.
