The PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut will be available as three differently priced upgrade tiers, Square Enix announced.
Prices depend on what Human Revolution content PC players already own. If Director’s Cut is a brand new purchase—that is, they don’t already own the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution—then the game and all its content will be $19.99. If you own the game, but none of the DLC, then Director’s Cut will only cost $9.99. Owning the game as well as the “Missing Link” DLC knocks the Director’s Cut upgrade price down to $4.99.
These upgrades, Square Enix points out, only apply to the Steam version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut.
Originally announced as a Wii U exclusive in March, Square Enix later revealed during E3 2013 that Director’s Cut would be a multi-platform release. Director’s Cut comes with the main game, all of the Human Revolution DLC (Missing LInk, Explosive Mission Pack, and the Tactical Enhancement Pack), reworked boss fights that were built in-house at Eidos (à la Missing Link’s, as opposed to the original boss fights, which were outsourced), second-screen functionality (which Square Enix has yet to detail for the PC versions), developer commentaries, an original Making-of video, and a New Game + mode that starts a new playthrough with upgrades carried over.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut launches on Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 October 22 in North America and October 25 in PAL territories.
