Square Enix has revealed that the once Wii U exclusive title Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is no longer an exclusive, coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 alongside the Wii U.
“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.

After several rumours and a momentary pre-order listing on Amazon yesterday, Eidos Montreal, a studio of Square Enix, has officially revealed the Director's Cut for Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Wii U. The title will see various improvements over the original release in 2011, including GamePad support and the entire Missing Link chapter have also been integrated seamlessly into the narrative flow of the Director's Cut.

Other additions include overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and combat, improved AI, and striking visual improvements. The Director's Cut will also feature developer commentaries and also various in-game guides for users to utilise.

No release date has been given yet for the Wii U release, however several new screenshots have been revealed showing off how players will utilise Nintendo's Wii U GamePad, which you can check out below.

In a pre-order listing that has since been removed, online retail giant Amazon appears to have pre-empted an official announcement of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut --a new version of the acclaimed 2011 title tailored for the Nintendo Wii U console.

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.

It hasn't been banned, or even had its rating changed at all as far as we can tell, but according to the 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.

Production house CBS Films has named Scott Derrickson as the director of the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution movie, to be based on the story of the cybernetically-augmented Adam Jensen of the 2011 videogame of the same name.

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.”

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.
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.

Claims that a non-player character in Deus Ex: Human Revolution by the name of Letitia the "trash lady", is a racially charged stereotype that crosses the line, has caused Square Enix to issue an official statement.

"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."

Thanks Industry Gamers.

So after 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, 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:

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

Square Enix have released yet another dev diary style trailer for Deus Ex, rounding out their "Behind 2027" series of behind-the-scenes promo videos. This purported final installment offers some insight into the creation of the game's audio, discussing their approach to the soundtrack and the challenges of making that fit dynamically within the game's different gameplay styles as well as the creation of the many and varied sound effects throughout.

AusGamers has another local exclusive video for you today from the files of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this time going into depth on the game's social and hacking fronts as active parts of the overall "four gameplay pillars" design directive Eidos Montreal have developed here.

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.

Square Enix have sent word that the hotly anticipated Deus Ex: Human Revolution has gone gold, which for those not familiar with the term (it's being used less and less these days with the rise of digital distribution) means the game has completed development and is ready to be manufactured on retail discs.
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.

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.
Deus: Ex Human Revolution is due on Australian shelves on August 25th 2011 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

AusGamers was given the local exclusive option to host the next Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer in the lead up to the game's release next month, this time going into detail about the game's stealth component.

The video explores how stealth can not only be used as a system to remain out of sight, but to also learn more about the game-world, or specific approaches to areas you might need to infiltrate by stealthily listening in on conversations between guards who could reveal a new path or give up valuable information for you to really make the most of the game's multi-path gameplay system. It also explores a lot more.

Having recently had the pleasure of playing through the Deus Ex: Human Revolution preview on Xbox 360 (which still looked rather good), I can tell you that this game should be well worth the wait for its 25th of August release date. In fact, the worst thing about having played the preview is how much more it made me want the final version. Sigh.

Anticipatory gripes aside, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is being shown off at E3 and we’ve put a handful of new images on the game page, as well as attached a developer walkthrough video below (courtesy of Game Trailers). Check them out and get excited.

We recently got our hands on a preview build of the hotly anticipated Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the chance to take the game for another spin, this time both extended and unsupervised.
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.

Most pre-order announcements aren't generally worth sharing as in the days of digital distribution with little to no risk of stocks running low, there's not generally a whole lot of sense in departing with your cash before you can actually get your hands on the game.

Limited Collector's Editions however -- with all their shiny, tangible augments -- are still an exception to this and Namco Bandai Partners, the Australian distributor for Deus Ex: Human Revolution has reminded us that pre-orders for theirs have launched nationwide today.
The specially designed Collector’s Box is chock-full of features enriching the DEUS EX world for players, including:
· Highly collectable Adam Jensen action figurine designed by Play Arts Kai
· Explosive Mission Pack: An entirely new mission with a special cameo appearance from one of the original DEUS EX characters
· Exclusive in-game weapons: Automatic Unlocking Device, M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED), Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, SERSR Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle
· 10,000 extra credits to buy or upgrade weapons
· DVD featuring a 44-minute “making of” special, 30-minute game soundtrack, motion-comic (adapted from DC Comics’ official series), E3 trailer and animated storyboard
· 40-page art book
Units are reportedly individually numbered and only available at three selected Australian retailers: EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and GAME. Check out the embedded trailer (or here for HD) for a showcase of the packged goods.

Sarif Industries, the viral marketing site for the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution (posing as the bio-tech research corp from the game) has been updated with some more cool stuff, including a well-produced spoof TV ad for cybernetic enhancement products.
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.

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.
Check out the trailer embedded below (or click here for HD) and head over to for more goodies, including what appears to be some form of embedded hacking game.
