Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Missing Link Announcement

Square Enix formally announces The Missing Link, the upcoming DLC pack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution first revealed last week. The announcement confirms plans to release the DLC for the action/RPG prequel next month and offers a few screenshots and this trailer to promote it. Here's word:
The DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen’s quest for the truth in DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.

"We are very excited for DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION fans to be able to further develop Adam’s journey in the game with The Missing Link DLC," said David Anfossi, producer of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION at Eidos-Montreal. "Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. The Missing Link propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being temporarily stripped of his use of augmentations; new, visually stunning environments; and the continuation of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION’s conspiracy-rich story.”

At least they waited a whole week before announcing DLC.

Interesting that they place it during the boat ride (where you skip a week ahead hehe) in the game. I wonder if it'll become seamless, where you board the boat and do this DLC and then get off it back to the normal game.

Dear SquEidix,
Debug tool lets me play 'preorder augmented edition' stuff.
Please release 'Tong mission' (which is literally one mission) and serve as a lesson to future gaming companies.

Honestly, $150 for a plastic dragon, a big ass book of sweet drawings, and the game? Oh yeah, and music and a making of.

Augmented edition was what...? Ten bucks more? Came with... missing pieces of the game. Augmented edition, literally.
Like replacing missing arm augmented.
The debate rages on.

I am conflicted!

But you're supporting the devs right? And their awesome game? Continued funds might help with a sequel. I know you want to do the right thing here.

And it's not just the developers you're supporting, but also your favorite platform, considering we're hoping that publishers everywhere will learn the lesson that PC gaming is not dead, you just gotta make the sort of games PC gamers like to play, and implement them well instead of doing lousy ports.

My personal dream is that DXHR sales are in excess of two million SKUs eventually, with 40% sold on PC. That would be a big signal.

I really hope we'll get some platform ratio data with any sales figures release.

What about taking the Witcher path and remaining neutral?

Well shit, that three-day thing was a bit spoilerish for those of us only seven hours into the game.

(and my seven hours is probably everyone else's three since I'm going slow on purpose. Yes, I DID in fact need to stop and gaze at every single sign and billboard on the street. Shut up.)

Love the game, can't wait for the DLC. Skyrim and Arkham City are the only potential contenders for GOTY other than DX:HR. Wait Dark Souls, damn this year is packed.

Think my first playthrough was 32 or 34 hours. Take your time and enjoy it.

Spoiler text: Wasn't the point of the boat ride that Adam was pretty beat up after Tong double-crossed him at Belltower's port? Adam needed time to recuperate so he locked himself in one of those transport pods... I think it's kind of a stretch to go from a 3 day R&R ride to Singapore to discovering the truth behind who is controlling Belltower etc. Then again, I wasn't too impressed with the way they fit Eliza Cassan into the story. An Illuminati controlled AI news reporter is just so trite and boring, and the way they did the whole Montreal sequence just felt really rushed and not well thought out compared to the rest of the story.

(and my seven hours is probably everyone else's three since I'm going slow on purpose. Yes, I DID in fact need to stop and gaze at every single sign and billboard on the street. Shut up.)

Hey, I think a lot of us did... there are actually some clues and hints in those billboards, signs, and talking to civilians on the street. Where took most of my friend ~25 hours to play through, it took me about 32 hours from start to finish, but I did speed myself up a little bit about half way through.

I hope so. LA Noire really spoiled me where DLC is concerned. It just becomes part of the overall narrative.

I'm pretty sure my 70 hours (minus about 5 hours for two restarts) still reign supreme for the "Holy shit, dude, MOVE YOUR LAZY ASS!" award.

(secret texts)

and the way they did the whole Montreal sequence just felt really rushed and not well thought out compared to the rest of the story.


That's because Montreal was originally going to be a hub, like Detroit and Foo Yong Hai. They didn't have time to do three hubs, so they cut Montreal and left the Eliza Cassan is revealed to be an AI (shock!) bit in there for continuity purposes.

I took 40.5, being very sneaky and (I thought) thorough. For 70hrs, I'd have to be going for the Pacifist achievement, I think.

Not that I'm not tempted to go back and try to do the whole thing with one hand tied behind my back...

Hey, what exactly does the Deus Ex difficulty do, anyway? Just more bad guys? I hate "Hard" modes that just nerf you and buff the Bad Guys.
