Of all the news that is coming out of E3 right now, this is the only Mac-related thing that’s made bellow “but why?” out loud (there have been plenty of those on the Windows and console fronts though). There’s going to be a “Director’s Cut™”* edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution:
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut™ is the enhanced return to one of the most critically-acclaimed video game franchises of all time. The game tells the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his own will, who soon finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key.
By offering players the chance to advance through the game in multiple and vastly different ways, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut™ challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence.
They make a big deal out of it having the missing link DLC (which is of course already included in our “Ultimate edition”) and some other stuff that I can’t imagine justify paying whatever the asking price will be. It’s possible that this will be a free update, but given Eidos’ financial state, it seems unlikely.
*Seriously? Director’s cut gets a trademark symbol? It doesn’t even make sense in this context.
