How to upgrade Deus Ex PC with the Director's Cut content

On PC, new players can dive right into Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut with a full $19.99 purchase, but there are other money-saving options for the rest of us who own the base game already and want that new content....

Looks like Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is going to cost extra if you're planning on getting the Wii U version. Nintendo Everything has checked prices at a few retailers and it turns out the final price on Nintendo's platform will be $50 -- that's $20 more expensive than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. That price is consistent across Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy.

This doesn't appear to be the case in the UK however, with the Wii U version slightly cheaper at £23.99 on Amazon.co.uk, compared to the 360 and PS3 versions which are £24.99. The PC version on Amazon costs just £14.36. Other UK retailers, like GAME and Play.com, have priced the Wii U version at £29.99.

I can understand the annoyance at paying more for a game that's cheaper on other platforms but in this case I can sort of see justifying charging more. The Wii U GamePad support is pretty extensive and those are features gamers won't necessarily get on another platform. Still, I'd be really interested to see a breakdown of how sales of the Director's Cut were split between all platforms, especially as this is the first time Human Revolution has appeared on Wii U.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut out on Oct. 22

We've already learned of the next stage in the Deus Ex franchise but Eidos Montreal isn't forgetting about Human Revolution. The Director's cut of the game will hit current consoles and PC on October 22 in North America and ...

That Deus Ex: Universe trademark? It's not what it might've sounded like. Eidos Montreal has lifted the lid on its future plans for the franchise, which include multiple games for PC/consoles as well as mobile titles, books, and graphic novels -- that's what Universe is all about.

"The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games," writes studio head David Anfossi. "It's a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before."

An important first step is a new core game from the team behind Human Revolution. Announced for next-generation consoles and PC, the title is currently in production and you can see the first concept art above. We actually asked for this! "[The artwork] shows trans-humanism segregation, which is a backdrop to our vision for the next Deus Ex," says Anfossi.

"It represents a "ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex."

Nab four bundled Square Enix games for $15 by day's end

Have you somehow avoided picking up Just Cause 2, Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Sleeping Dogs for mere pittance? I feel like they've all been below $5 at some point, but if you're still looking to own the...

Review: Deus Ex: The Fall

After a pretty tantalizing teaser, Square Enix was all set to announce the anticipated follow-up to the successful Deus Ex Human Revolution -- and much to the ire of fans, it ended up being a mobile exclusive.

It's not all bad news though, as Deus Ex: The Fall actually works pretty well considering the platform, and offers up a lighter, more portable version of Human Revolution. That said, it would have been a much better experience on a dedicated portable -- or at the very least, anything offering tactile controls.

Deus Ex: The Fall is a the next entry to the much loved series, heading for iOS this summer, with an Android version coming sometime there after. This may not be what you asked for, but don't write it off either. Mobile games have come a long way, and I was quite impressed with what I got to play at a recent Square Enix showing. Plus, this will be a nice hold over until whatever the next entry will be for Deus Ex on PCs and consoles.

The Fall represents a true Deus Ex experience, featuring multiple play styles, player choice, and loads of customization. More importantly, these are some of the best controls I've seen when it comes to touch screens trying to match physical inputs.

Eidos asks if we're ready for Deus Ex: The Fall

Assuming that Deus Ex: The Fall is another game installment and not some spinoff project like a graphic novel, as some of you have suggested, then yes, Eidos Montréal, we are ready for it. Thanks for asking. And thanks...
