"We're Not Trying To Stitch You Up"
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut promises to overhaul the terrible bosses and expand our non-combat options, and is headed to all platforms following a depressingly brief period of Wii U exclusivity. PC gamers will be laughing all the way to the bank, because apparently the new version will only cost £12.99 new... and can be purchased as a £3.49 DLC upgrade if you already own the original game and its expansion.
We didn't ask for this, but it sure is nice.
Square Enix made the pricing official on their official site. "The Director’s Cut is pretty much the complete package, then," explains Square's Phil Elliot. "It contains the full Human Revolution game, plus all DLC packs (the Missing Link, the Explosive Mission Pack, and the Tactical Enhancement Pack) – along with some improvements to the boss fights… which you’ll probably find really useful."
"Not only that, but there’s a New Game + feature, so you can replay through the action with all your previously-earned upgrades intact (which, trust me, is a LOT of fun), there are developer commentaries (English-only) plus the original Making-of video."
"Pretty straightforward, and that means that if you did invest in Human Revolution in the past, we’re not trying to stitch you up with the Director’s Cut, m’kay?"
PC players will have three purchase options, depending on what they already own. Behold:
- New purchase (if you don’t already have the game): £12.99/€19.99/$19.99
- Own the basic game (with no DLC): £6.99/€7.99/$9.99
- Own the game and Missing Link DLC: £3.49/€3.99/$4.99
Neat. Well, looks like I won't be needing the Wii U version, then.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut releases on October 25th for Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
