The Deus Ex Directors Cut Fixed Boss Fights First

Deus Ex Human Revolution 300x250DLC chapters Tong’s Revenge and The Missing Link are also part of the game’s narrative, as a new trailer shows.

The new trailer shows the Wii U version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution looking fine, and nods its head toward Gamepad inventories, maps and minigames. To its credit those mini games already existed, they’ve not been shoehorned into the Wii U version.

If nothing else this trailer shows that Eidos Montreal is a team that will listen to feedback. If this were just a port, complete with trashy forced boss encounters, then it wouldn’t be of note to anyone but Wii U players that don’t own any other system capable of playing video games. As it is, it shows that future games from Eidos Montreal, such as Thief IV and particularly any future Deus Ex games, will be smarter – they know we’re picky people.

It’s also nice to see The Missing Link incorporated into the game’s canon. It should offer a nice late game change of pace, though it also highlights the questionable business and narrative ethics of creating ‘mid story’ DLC – was it DLC, or was it cut to sell as DLC?

Either way that’s a discussion for another time, and not a little news post for a trailer. So I’ll stop extrapolating minor points into point mountains and just post the video.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Directors Cut will be released on the Nintendo Wii U soon.
