Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Leaked By Amazon

Posted by Damien McFerran

Amazon spills details ahead of rumoured PAX East announcment

At the start of the month we reported on the rumour that a modified version of Square Enix's Deus Ex: Human Revolution was coming to the Wii U.

That rumour has now been given additional weight by the editor of a German website, who has claimed on a podcast that he's seen the game — which is called Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut — in action and that it will be revealed by Square Enix at PAX East.

You can check out the podcast in question here, but you'll need to understand German.

As if to put it beyond all doubt, Amazon has leaked the cover of the game and given it a North American release date of May 7th. According to the listing, the Wii U GamePad will allow you to use Adam Jenson's latest gadget, the Neural Hub, to offer "an immersive and empowering experience, right at the tips of your fingers".

Are you keen to play this game on Wii U, or do you feel a bit annoyed at being fed old games on your Nintendo console? Drop a comment to tell us.

Well seeing as my WiiU is sitting there gathering dust and I never played this game when it came to 360/PS3 I think this is a perfect time to pick it up.

Deus Ex Director's Cut for the Wii U? I've never heard of the series, but I'm sure this would make an awesome addition to the Wii U library.



Triforce83 said:

Played and completed the 360 version so in no real rush to get Wii U version unless there are graphical improvements and more than one Wii U specific enhancement than might give it a miss until drop in price. I must admit I'm starting to get annoyed we (Wii U) owners are being spoon fed last gen games with small gamepad additions, come on devs where are the new IP's and amazing uses of the gamepad!!



MAB said:

Game isn't that good anyway so I'm glad its not coming out on WiiU... Lazy developers these days



Linkstrikesback said:

Ugh. now when this 2 year old port absolutely tanks, square will point at it and say "Our games don't sell on wii u!" as an excuse not to bring over games in a timely manner.
The pc version of the game has already gone as low as $4.99/£4.99 on steam, and I didn't buy it then! I'm not going to buy another inevitable full priced (£39.99) port.

And what idiot greenlighted this instead of making a timely wii u version of tomb raider?



Peach64 said:

Great news for Nintendo only gamers. I picked up the 360 version last January for the amazing price of £7 brand new. It's not as good as the original Deus Ex, but still a very good game with a fair bit of replay value too.



WiiLovePeace said:

Damn there goes my hope for a major miracle in a sequel to FFCC: The Crystal Bearers. Don't know if I'll pick this up, seems a bit too dark of a game for me. Good to see more games headed to Wii U though.



DePapier said:

If they can better graphics and gameplay — which I doubt --, it could be interesting.




I have never played this before and as long as its not priced over 40 quid, I'll buy it



Magikarp3 said:

This is an excellent game - especially if you like the colour yellow!

I wonder how the gamepad's going to be integrated though



Shiryu said:

I was hoping they were porting "Mass Effect Trilogy", but this is good too, I will pick it up for sure, they did a solid job on "Mass Effect 3" on Wii U.



marck13 said:

I am very interested in the game and might get it if the it is a good port and has enhanced grafics.
Sad of course that it is "just another old port" - in my eyes that is not too bad thought, if its "WiiU-worthy" made/adopted.



GumbyX84 said:

Seriously? THIS was their big reveal? : facepalm: I WISH this wasn't leaked. The Final Fantasy and RPG fans would be raging at PAX.

Does wanting to see that make me a bad person?



The-Chosen-one said:

no i dont think this was their big secret reveal.

but i want to know does deus ex have multiplayer does anyone know?



JFug said:

Was hoping it was KH 1.5 HD Remix or a Wii U version of KH Dream Drop Distance.



WebHead said:

It certainly looks interesting. Even if it is a port of a 2 year old title. I may consider this if it is at the right price, meaning $40 max.



TheEmerlLad said:

If this is what they have to struggle on publishing then so be it. Nintendo's gotta survive with what little they can grab. I'm seriously hoping that this coming e3 will be seeing some of those first party titles.

...That Normally gets the sales rolling again. Patience is key after all.



Dpullam said:

I will most likely buy this. I was just hoping it was a new game that they were announcing and not just a updated version of a game they have already released. At least the game looks interesting.



Ducutzu said:

Awesome news. I do not own a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360, and was never motivated to buy one - but I will buy Wii U releases of such tried-and-proven games. I have already preordered Sniper Elite v2 on the Wii U.



Dpishere said:

Maybe if we are lucky this isn't the new game they were referring to and that one has yet to be announced. Though that seems highly unlikely at this point in time.



WebHead said:

It might stink that Wii U is getting such old ports, but with its current sales, beggers can't be choosers...(not directed at anyone I am just saying.)



SheldonRandoms said:

Well some people still haven't played the game yet, especially those who only get Nintendo consoles, or the Wii U being their first console ever, so sure, i'll buy that port.



GiftedGimp said:

Directors cut.. ok I know there was a lot cut out of this game so it would make its release date & to get it to fit on 360's DVD disc format when it was released on other platforms.
One level got released as dlc but apparently there were still a lot of missions, and some extra levels & Bosses still missing from the original idea.
IF everything was put in to the game as was originally intended this, although I've played it before several times through, could be worth a look.
It looked stunning on ps3, The game was huge with all the side missions etc, and it had multiple endings, the extra content will make this version much bigger, and the touchpad controller has potential to be used as more than just a map/inventory screen.
I'm kind of excired for this.. lets see what new stuff the DC version brings.



FullbringIchigo said:

i was hoping that the Square Enix game coming to the WiiU was a Final Fantasy still Deus Ex wasn't a bad game

EDIT: i also don't mind if we get some old PS3 and 360 games on the WiiU because some of those game are fantastic plus it lets the publishers know if it worth publishing games on the console



JayRydah said:

Can any1 tell me if this game is good.i mean whats it evwn about. I never played it on ps3.i mean I seen it around but never thought 2wice about gettin it.



DarkKirby said:

What is exactly in the directors cut. The no gold tint mod and DLC included?

In all seriousness Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a fantastic game but I get almost all first person games for PC.



Dreamcaster-X said:

Ok, this was a pretty well reviewed game. Should be even better on Wii U if they include all the DLC and make use of the gamepad I'll definitely pick this up!



misswliu81 said:

i don't have an xbox 360 nor PS3, so this news makes me very happy. . not a huge fan of square enix these days but if they can make this version as good as those other versions, i'd definitely consider making this a purchase.



IxnayontheCK said:

My concern is they release ports to Wii U wayyy after they already came out on PS360 and then may complain because it didn't sell well on Wii U. Then use that as their basis for not developing for the platform. =/



FineLerv said:

@IxnayontheCK That's exactly how I feel. Though, having said that, pure-Nintendo fans need to realise that a good game doesn't have to be a Nintendo franchise. They don't need to wait for first-party games when they have all those triple A titles available. Buy the games if you've never played them, people; it supports your console.



Aerona said:

Ugh... all the awesome things we could have got... grumble why i oughta... etc etc



Gamer83 said:

Tomb Raider, Hitman or Sleeping Dogs would've been preferable but Deus Ex is awesome.



AtomicToaster said:

I'll buy it for Wiiu, it's a good game! And sure it's probably gonna be expensive at launch but there's nothing to play on Wiiu right now and you've got this game on a Nintendo console forever so whateves! Give me Tomb Raider!



Neram said:

If you've never played the game then it's not old to you. What does it matter if it was released a year or so ago? That's not even old. I think this is a good opportunity for Nintendo players who missed out on the chance to play it on other systems that they might have not owned.



MadAdam81 said:

I picked it up really cheap for 360 and really enjoyed it. I usually hate any sort of stealth gameplay, but I did enjoy it here - although you don't have to focus on stealth. I also liked the rpg elements.



AlexSora89 said:

So much for a Nintendo home console Kingdom Hearts game. There go my hopes of seeing "KH 1,5 HD Remix" on Wii U.



stingeragent said:

This is a great game. I played it when it first came out on PC. I've also played the original and the second one which wasn't all that great. The first one was probably the best of the series, as it had a lot of innovation going for it at the time. The third one was good too though. For the guy that asked what its about, its a FPS, set in a sci fi universe. It also incorporates rpg elements. Your basically a human that can get nano upgrades which allow you to do certain things ( invisibilty, robot control, IR vision, etc etc). Its a somewhat open world game in a sense, as your basically free to roam all the areas and do as you please. I no longer have a gaming PC, and just have a wii u. I'll be glad to pick this up though. A couple guys on here suggested square is doing this so they can say "look wii u sucks we won't do any more games for it" That is simply not the case. If that was the case, they would just not put out a port for it period. They clearly spent some money making changes, upgrading whatever it is etc, so they clearly have interest in the console. There are plenty of other publishers completely ignoring Wii U. Square doesn't have to put out an old port to justify ignoring it in the future. They could just do that from the get go and be done with it. This is an older port, but I'm sure there are tons of gamers that have never played it, and possibly never heard of it. I loved the first one when it came out way back when on PC, but all my friends that played pc games, or xbox or whatever had never heard of it. It isn't the mainstream COD after all. So even though it is older and some have probably already seen it, if they market it well, they will surely get a good reception. I personally think people should calm down on the Wii U bashing. Nintendo has it rough. They went from the Wii, which was mainly a family oriented/ group console. They knew to get a bigger market share they would have to reach a larger audience (AKA the FPS crowd, uncharted type of game etc). I'm sure they sent out notices to all the big publishers/developers to try and make the launch line up as strong as possible but there was clearly hesitation on the publisher side. They probably didn't want to risk developing games for this new system after seeing how their previous system was catered to the less "hardcore gaming" crowd. If I had a company developing tissue paper, and then decided I was gonna build guns for the military, I would probably have a fairly tough road ahead of me getting government contracts until I had established myself. That may not be the best analogy but surely someone will get my point. Once some solid games come out for the Wii U, and publishers/devs start to see that "hey this is a viable system and not just meant for little kids" we will start getting better games. Also of note, good AAA games usually aren't developed over night. It takes time, unless you want a buggy incomplete game that will get terrible reviews. The games and support will come. Nintendo made the launch lineup very clear, and minus a few delays they have delivered on it. We can't expect brand new titles to just be dropping left and right 6 months after release. Nintendo is still working out the bugs with the system, which is common for new hardware launches. As things improve, support will improve, and everything will get better.
