Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut Goes Multiplatform
Square Enix announced yesterday that the upcoming special edition of Eidos Montreal’s stealth action game Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut is no longer a Wii U exclusive and will be carrying over to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac.
Eidos Montreal general manager Stéphane D’Astous explained the move, saying that “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.”
The Director’s Cut edition of Deus Ex is said to feature “overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and combat, improved AI, and striking visual improvements,” all in an effort to deliver the most definitive version of the game yet. It will also include an entire bonus chapter of DLC and a pre-order bonus mission called Tong’s Rescue.
Unfortunately, this marks yet another undercut to the Wii U, joining the likes of Rayman Legends as a game that was once an exclusive for the Nintendo platform before being carried over to all other current-gen gaming systems. Of course, it’s sure to please fans on systems such as the PS3 and PC, but it’s still a blow to the Wii U to have another exclusive taken away from its limited lineup.
