“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."
“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.
I’m told that Derrickson and Cargill are serious about the lore of this game. In fact, they sat there and played through, all the way to the finish, before taking the meeting that ended up in this deal.
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.
After the mixed messages we’ve had this week, we understand that some of you may have ordered the game at local retailers and so it is still our intention to refund all orders made at ozgameshop.com.
The return to one of the most critically acclaimed video game franchises of all time, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is an action RPG that offers open-ended, hybrid gameplay.Deus: Ex Human Revolution is due on Australian shelves on August 25th 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Telling the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his choice who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is set in a near-future world where humanity is at a turning point.
Much of what appears in Human Revolution could be characterised as a new approach to traditional Deus Ex concepts. Much is overhauled but the underlining intricacies remain or are expanded. Conversations remain an integral part of the experience as you build relationships through conversation trees, and opinion of you is swayed by your actions. The hub itself is dynamic: throw a trash can at the wrong person and you could end up in a gunfight, but if you do and end up inadvertently killing somebody at the wrong time, the game adapts, conversations change and life goes on.Read on for some more of our early thoughts on how this new offering lives up to its namesake so far.

No one should ever have to give up a normal life because of a random incident, or indeed, lose a dream over a physical limitation. So believes David Sarif, idealist, philanthropist, founder and CEO of Sarif Industries.Check out the trailer embedded below (or click here for HD) and head over to sarifindustries.com for more goodies, including what appears to be some form of embedded hacking game.
Pursuing this belief, Mr. Sarif acquired a failing Detroit auto factory in 2007 and repurposed it for the automated manufacture of prosthetics, founding Sarif Industries. Today, we at Sarif Industries share David's passion. We believe that human augmentation will give people every opportunity to improve themselves, making the world a better place to live. Guided by this principle, we will continue to innovate and produce the finest line of Human Augmentation products the world has to offer.
