Deus Ex: The Fall jacking into PC in March

Deus Ex: The Fall jacking into PC in March

Mobile spin-off Deus Ex: The Fall looked like a Deus Ex game, and swam like a Deus Ex game, but quacked like a Deus Ex game with horrible touchscreen controls. How very pleasant, then, that it's coming to PC with support for keyboard and mouse or controllers, of course, and a few extra changes t'boot.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is a worthy update of the original game

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.

The upcoming Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has all sorts of nifty new features. For example, it has second-screen features that Wii U owners can easily take advantage of, like quick inventory management and an always-on map. But there are gameplay tweaks as well, such as overhauled boss battles and audio commentary that you can play throughout the entire experience.

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.
