Deus Ex: Human Revolution DLC Details

The Eidos Montreal Tumblr Blog answers some fan-submitted questions to shed some light on The Missing Link, the upcoming DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution (thanks nin). This includes word that it will not be free, some details on characters, and more on what it involves. Here are some selected answers:

“The new characters are Netanya Keitner and Pieter Burke. Both work for Belltower Associates. More info on them soon! And while it is not essential in any way to have read The Icarus Effect, it is certainly a good idea to do so not only because the DLC has subtle references to it, but also because it’s a great novel, period.”

“The Missing Link, while it is narratively tied with the main game, will be a separate item on the main menu. That way you’ll be able to enjoy it no matter where your saves are in the main game.”

“The Missing Link will be paid downloadable content. We will reveal the price a bit later! And you can play the DLC from any point in the game.”

That is one of my biggest problems with DLC. I ended up putting 45 hours into DE, but I am done with now. And I had all but...two? abilities maxed and explored all the various ways to get around the areas, hence the long play time.

Even though this DLC is coming relatively quick, I just hop back for a few hours? To something that is not even tied into the new game and won't be integrated into a new play through? That, in this case, is going to strip me of what my character has, let me build him up again, and then strip him of it again at the end?

I realize there are various reasons why the market will not embrace this, but I would much rather have proper expansions or episodic releases. Let me continue on, experience more, and expand within the world I enjoy instead of some mini-jaunt.
Skyrim please. Or a Rage with depth. KTHX.
