Editor's note: Given its similarities to the original PC release, we decided against a formal review of the recently-released Wii U version. Instead, we focus on how the Director's Cut improves upon the original.
The Director's Cut version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution updates Square Enix and Eidos Montreal's original 2011 game, reincorporating the Missing Link DLC back into the game and fixing some of the game's flaws. New extras, like second screen gameplay, supplement the overall experience.
Weekend Confirmed has finally reached the month of November and with next-gen console arrivals imminent, hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata invite Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and "Indie" Jeff Mattas to discuss the week's next-gen console stories, including the rumored different in resolution and the hardware announcements from Sony. After that, it's time to discuss games, as the crew breaks down Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and Batman: Arkham Origins before Jeff professes further love for Path of Exile. The show wraps up with "Indie" Jeff revisiting The Stanley Parable over two years after first discussing the original mod, a brief talk about the strange Device 6, and everyone's rapidly-increasing Piles of Shame before going into some post-Halloween Finishing Moves and the post-show Tailgate.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is set to arrive on October 22. Fans that have already paid and played the original probably don't want to pay for a double-dip. Thankfully, Square Enix has heard fan concerns and has promised that the PC version of Human Revolution can be upgraded to the Director's Cut at a discounted rate.
Hackers, cyborgs, transhumans, and mere meatbags, delight: more Deus Ex is coming. Eidos Montreal today announced a yet-unnamed new game is in development for PC and next-gen consoles, as the centrepiece of a transmedia blitz called Deus Ex: Universe.
It also confirmed that the revamped Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will launch October 22 on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.
While originally announced as a Wii U exclusive port, a PS3, Xbox 360, and PC version is also in the works. You'll need SmartGlass or Vita to take advantage of the second screen on the other consoles, but the tweaked gameplay and new features should be appreciable to everyone that plays this re-release.
