I totally asked for this: Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut shipping out today

Eidos-Montréal has announced that Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut is shipping out today in North America for the Wii U, 360, PS3, and PC. The title is also readily available to download on most of the platforms and will be out in Europe and other PAL territories October 25th.

Fancy name David Anfossi, Eidos-Montréal Head of Studio, shared his thoughts about this enhanced version of the game, saying:

“The Director’s Cut is our opportunity to address and implement all of the amazing feedback we received from the community into our much loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution. We’re incredibly lucky to have such a passionate community and we hope that new and returning players alike enjoy what we consider to be the definitive version of Human Revolution.”

Gamers who buy the Director’s Cut through the Square Enix online store for any of the home consoles will get the novella, Deus Ex: Fallen Angel, as an added bonus. The story follows the exploits of sexy pilot Faridah Malik before the events of Human Revoultion, so it’s a must-have (especially since it comes free with the purchase!).

So, what has changed to make this Director’s Cut so special? For starters, the game includes the Missing Link DLC and the Tong’s Rescue mission integrated seamlessly into the main story, all pre-order and bonus weapons, a “making-of” video, over 8 hours of developer commentary, New Game +, and the official strategy guide to use in-game if you are a DIRTY CHEATER. Also, the energy system has been rebalanced, the enemy A.I. has been updated, boss fights have been enhanced so stealth is now an option fighting them instead of the forced gunfights of the original, and the graphics look SWEETER.

Own a Wii U, Vita, or SmartGlass? Get ready to put that second screen to use as a brand new touchscreen interface. Check out the Wii U GamePad in action right here:

Jesus, that looked incredible. I really want to try this out on my new Wii U, but only if they fixed the atrocious load times from the original (god, were they bad). It should also be noted that the Wii U version of the Director’s Cut is $50 while the other versions are $30. PC users also have a way to update their original Human Revolution to the Director’s Cut, if they so desire. Here’s a launch trailer, though I never asked for clips.
